Backend Developer

We’re on the hunt for a talented Backend Developer to join our agency full-time in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia. We help leading manufacturers around the world digitally transform marketing and sales to deliver more leads, close more prospects, and grow their competitive edge.

People Matter, Objects Don’t is at the core of our design and development approach, leading to the creation of gorgeous, intuitive, standards-based interfaces that are not only easy to use, but also help convert nameless, faceless website visitors into leads and customers. It means websites that render beautifully and that are wonderfully usable on mobile and tablet devices, understanding that people are choosing to connect to the internet—and thus to each other—using a wide range of platforms.

As our newest Backend Developer, you’ll work closely with Kula’s cross-functional teams of exceptional developers, designers and marketers. You’re a technology generalist with a strong interest in systems integration and server-side development. You might be a perfect fit at Kula if you:

  • enjoy crafting custom solutions for integrating different web-based systems, many of which you will be encountering for the first time (e.g. content management systems, e-commerce platforms, enterprise resource planning systems, product information management systems, accounting software)
  • have the soft skills to collaborate with both our clients and their system vendors to deliver complete end-to-end solutions
  • can work with a mix of modern and legacy APIs on enterprise-scale systems
  • are fluent in both PHP and Java, with a knack for adapting to new languages and technologies as needed
  • understand the best practices for build and deployment pipelines on a LAMP stack
  • have a solid grasp of networking fundamentals and server security

How to apply

We’re most concerned with your work, not where you went to school or what agencies/tech companies you’ve worked at. While we appreciate any and all applications, only those applicants selected for an interview will be contacted.
