Back-end Developer

We are seeking to change the world. Literally.

Creatubbles is a safe-for-all-ages social platform focused on creativity. On top of the Creatubbles platform that now has users in more than 50 countries around the world, the “Share with Creatubbles” partner solution provides out-of-the-box safe social community engagement for brands of all sizes. With strong operational connections in the East and the West, Creatubbles presents a unique opportunity to be a part of a truly global team.

In a world with information ubiquity, rapid developments in intelligent technologies, and geo-political fluidity and fragility, it is clear that human creativity with depth and empathy amongst our future generations is becoming increasingly important. We see human creativity as a critical life skill that can and must be developed, nurtured, and celebrated. Creatubbles is being developed as a platform to do just this.

Creatubbles seeks to connect the dots between natural human creativity, technology, and business to inspire and bring out the best that exists in all of us, including our youngest and most vulnerable.

We are looking for a Back-end Developer who is fundamentally excited about this challenge and who has the skills, experience, and understanding required to help make our dream a reality.

Your primary focus will be development of all server-side logic, definition and maintenance of the central database, and ensuring high performance and responsiveness to requests from the front-end. A solid understanding of front-end technologies is therefore necessary as well.
