Principal Full Stack Architect


We're open to remote candidates located within +/- 3 hours PT.

At MetaLab, we design pretty exciting products, but the architecting and building is where you come in. Our technology team needs your help in concepting new ideas with technology and bringing our products across the finish line for our clients to enjoy in the wild.

To thrive in this role, you'll provide technical expertise and guidance on projects, tackle new skills, and show up ready for anything. You collaborate with our design and product teams to find relatable, new ways to use technology, helping others work within technical limits, and building products that improve people's lives. Your team is important to you, and you take pride in helping build and guide junior and intermediate developers grow into leaders.

We believe the magic happens when you combine thoughtful collaboration, strong processes, and the freedom for people to be themselves. When you're comfortable being yourself, you do your best work and inspire others to do the same.
