Whitespectre [] is a product-centric, technology consultancy for both VC funded start-ups and large, established companies across the US and Europe. We’re also a product incubator with our own applications and B2B SaaS platform. As long-term partners to our clients, we’ve played a critical role in their growth- both through the products we co-create and the expertise and processes we bring.

What's it like to be an Engineer at Whitespectre?

* All of our engineers are sharp technical experts with the ability to think like product owners - being able to advocate for code quality as a long-term strategic investment while knowing when to adapt a more start-up mentality to deliver rapid business value. They work with the team to make architecture and implementation decisions, and stay up to date with the latest technologies and approaches.

* Our Frontend engineers live and breathe pixel perfect design, highly performant frontend implementations and are always implementing for multiple devices.

* Whitespectre projects use a fully-modern tech stack- toolset includes Node.js/Express, ReactJS, Typescript, Webpack, Shopify, REST/GraphQL, Rails, Postgres, Elastic, CI/CD with Docker, Heroku/AWS, etc. Working smartly is important to us; automation, dynamic environments spin up with new feature branches and slack bot integrations control our production releases.

* The majority of our projects involve building greenfield applications and our delivery teams typically own products end to end - your thinking and contribution make a big impact!
