We're a community of designers, engineers, and product managers who are passionate about building quality software. Our environment is collaborative and relaxed, and as a result we build products that are well considered and well architected.

We're hiring talented Full Stack Engineers who want to build ambitious products using modern tools. "Full Stack Engineer" can mean many things. At Postlight, it refers to a person with 2 years of experience who can build entire front end web applications and deploy complex services to the cloud that support those applications.

We ship, and we ship often. Millions of people use our products, and we support them for years. As a result, we care deeply about code quality. The thought process behind a line of code is just as important as the line itself. We review pull requests and love having discussions about how solutions can be made DRYer, clearer, and safer.

We use the right tools for the job. That means that we're always evaluating ways to work smarter and faster and get the maximum amount of joy out of the job. The result is that we use modern tools on a modern stack.


Below are two types of applications we build frequently: a modern frontend application and a modern backend API. We’ve listed example technologies we use for each part of the stack. The more apps you’ve built using the technologies below, the better fit you are for Postlight. We don't expect applicants to have experience with every technology below. Many of our current full stack engineers have learned skills from this list on the job.

Modern JavaScript Front End App

  • Languages: TypeScript and JavaScript

  • Linting and style: ESLint and Prettier

  • Frameworks: React, React Native

  • CSS: Flexbox, PostCSS, CSS in JS (Emotion and more), Functional CSS (Tailwind)

  • Best Practices: Modern bundling techniques, performance, security

  • Graphics: SVG, D3

Modern Backend API

  • Languages: JavaScript, PL/pgSQL, Ruby, Python, Elixir, Java, PHP

  • API Design: GraphQL, JSON API

  • Frameworks: Postgraphile, Serverless, Apollo GraphQL, Hasura, Phoenix, WordPress

  • Containerization: Docker

  • Data Storage: Postgres, MySQL, NoSQL, Firebase, Redis, ElasticSearch

  • Cloud Providers: AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Heroku

  • Infrastructure: Terraform, Pulumi

Whether working on site or remotely, your communication skills will be as important as your technical ones. Collaborating across time zones requires constant, clear communication and coordination, via Slack, documents, and frequent video conferences. Postlight is headquartered in New York City, but half of our team works remotely. We know how to keep everyone on the same page, and so should you.

Your skill set will grow at Postlight. You will join a team excited about the problems they solve and the tools they use to solve them. We keep pace with the industry, and are active participants in the open-source world. You will find yourself regularly growing in your career, using new tools and frameworks to solve new kinds of problems—with support from management and mentors.

Studies show that women and members of underrepresented groups apply for jobs only if they meet 100% of the qualifications. Postlight encourages everyone interested in a role to apply. We look forward to your application!

Postlight is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Building web and mobile products is risky. Fewer than one third of software projects ship on time. But Postlight is proven, with deep expertise building and shipping digital prototypes, platforms, and products. We’ve done it again and again for clients like Time Inc, VICE Media, Goldman Sachs, Insight Catastrophe Group, and many others.

We build prototypes to prove out ideas—then build large, scalable digital platforms that support simple, elegant consumer products. There’s no magical, one-size-fits-all process. We’re just experienced. We deploy small teams of smart people—product managers, engineers, and designers—who think hard, work fast, and tell the truth. That’s it.

Interdisciplinary Teams

Postlight is a team of creative technologists working together to build beautiful, expertly engineered platforms.

We live by these principles: We ship code on time, we don’t compromise quality, and we bring passion to our work. Our team is made up of product strategists, designers, and engineers with the expertise to ship high-quality products. We work collaboratively across disciplines and with our clients.

Proven Leadership

Postlight’s partners are experienced entrepreneurs and thought leaders. Our leadership team speaks plainly about what it takes to build great digital products, and guides the creation of platforms that change the industry.
