HQ: Marie Forleo International, Inc.

  • OFF: United States only
  • Full-Time
You’re a creative, positive, hardworking senior level Full Stack Developer who lives and breathes pixel-perfection.
You thrive in a fast-paced, creative environment. Making sure the customer has an excellent digital experience is always front-of-mind.
This position is responsible for ensuring our digital properties are cutting edge, work seamlessly, and are fast as lightning. You’ll work closely with a Project Manager, and our Creative Team and Operations Team to create excellent websites and experiences.
Additionally, you’ll work with the Development Team to modify, enhance and optimize our existing codebase, as well as develop new features for both Team Forleo and our customers. You’ll also work to build and maintain systems/processes to connect the various third-party applications we use to run our business.
As a part of our team, you’ll wear many hats and have the opportunity to help grow and shape the future of our company. The only limit is your drive, commitment and imagination.

  • When a mission-critical project happens, you work until the job gets done
  • You do whatever it takes and the phrase “That’s not my job” is not a part of your vocabulary

  • You’re on top of the latest and greatest in techniques, trends and technologies
  • You live and breathe pixel-perfection

This position is not for you if:
  • You have personal drama
  • You don’t really commit wholeheartedly to anything
  • You think self-help is weird
  • You have no sense of humor
  • You don’t live and work in the continental United States
The nitty gritty:
  • We’re open to this being a full time employee or freelance position
  • We strive to keep meetings to a minimum while having enough structure to foster collaboration and keep projects on track and on time.
  • Full-time employees get 6 weeks paid vacation, 401K, health/dental insurance, inspiration days, paid holidays, and competitive pay
  • Your location isn’t as important as your attitude and talent, but it’s required that you live and work in the continental United States and are eligible to work in the United States
  • This is a virtual position working with our stellar virtual team
