At Stack Builders we’re building the best development team in Latin America. A team that is leading the industry to better standards of quality thanks to a lot of hard work, constant learning and a hunger to improve each day.
We’re curious by nature and we let our curiosity drive us into new technologies, new creations and new improvements that push our futures forward.
And you might be someone just like that - looking for an opportunity to exceed your current best, and knowing that there’s still lots to learn.
If this resonates with you, this might be the perfect job for you!
This position consists of 2 parts: learning and creating.
In this position you will be asked to learn at a fast pace and about a wide variety of subjects such as: the best practices the industry has developed, about new technologies (like Haskell) and about many more subjects that we find really important (like functional programming, test driven development, how to communicate better and how to shape business products). So if you love reading, learning and sharing your knowledge with others, this is the right place to be.
The second part of the job consists of creating clean and easy to maintain code up to our client’s standards.
Developers are also required to train others, communicate effectively with clients and overall participate in our internal initiatives.
What is the team expecting?
Members of our team should be able to adapt to different and exciting projects. Since we’re a software consultancy, the projects that we handle will challenge you and allow you to look at problems from a different point of view. As the technologies you use can change greatly from project to project, we expect you to keep learning and updating your knowledge.
In addition, members of our team are happy contributing to open source projects regularly, creating and publishing tutorials, and sharing their knowledge in our Quito Lambda meetup. We value people interested in the chance to connect and contribute to create a stronger software community.
Would you like to be a part of this journey? Apply through our Job Board.
Note: This is an On-Site position, open to candidates who wish to work at our Quito - Ecuador office (Candidates who are looking to relocate will need to show strong skills using at least one of our core programming languages).

A completed university degree in any discipline is mandatory; regardless of the major, candidates need to prove a strong theoretical background in programming in general.
Engineers who are close to graduation are welcome to apply, we would be able to offer an internship at the company if successful.
