Programmer/Full Stack Developer
MOBIUS, a nonprofit 501(C)3 library membership organization, located in Columbia, Missouri is seeking an on-site Full Stack Developer to join our team.
We are a small group of people with a range of backgrounds and interests, but we share a core mission: We are deeply dedicated to libraries and the services they provide, and we are absolutely committed to customer success. Though we often work independently, we rely on the expertise of the entire team to ensure our libraries thrive. We work hard, but we play hard, too - and we understand that there is more to life than what happens in the office.
If you’re wondering how you might fit in - if you are self-driven and have a collaborative spirit, are passionate about your work and your interests, and are ready to take on new challenges, this is the place for you!
We offer a competitive salary; relocation assistance; an excellent benefits package including health, vision, and dental (for dependents as well); generous vacation and sick leave, life insurance, and a 401K.
