Senior Backend Developer

with Server Admin capabilities (full time, remote)

We also encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including people of color, LGBTQ-identifying people, veterans and people with disabilities.

Lifeblue is a full-service digital agency on a mission to help our partners make their greatest impact — socially, culturally or economically. As a Senior Backend Developer, you will be part of our team building and maintaining sites for our partners or our internal products. You will have the opportunity to work in a multitude of industries spanning from arts and culture to sports.

Primary responsibilities include web development and systems administration. Given that we are a small team, you will be involved in every step of a project from start to finish. While team leads provide guidance and support, you’re expected to help determine priorities, proactively problem solve and share discoveries with the team.

What we use:

  • PHP, Laravel 6+, Wordpresss
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • SQL, NoSQL and Key-Value Databases
  • Continuous Deployment services and GIT
  • Security for DDOS, Fraud and OWASP Top 10

Our approach

We are a purpose-driven company that touches all phases of business: strategy, design, development, content creation and marketing, SEO and SEM — plus horizon watching, problem-solving and innovation. Among our many incredible partners are the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Heifer International and the Dallas Zoo.

We take an iterative approach, so as a Senior Backend Developer, you’ll help us determine the best path in order to complete critical pieces first.

Remaining flexible is important in serving our partners so that they can continue to focus on their missions. If there’s an urgent need, team members jump in to help deliver seamless service.

That collaborative environment also extends to how we support our team members.

Along with competitive compensation and benefits, we empower each other through consistent encouragement, creative events (that remain virtual for now), and regular programming around topics that are integral to our industry and culture.

We’re constantly striving to support our team members and continue to explore benefits that do just that.

Benefits and perks

  • Competitive compensation, profit-sharing, health/vision/dental benefits, 401(k)
  • Generous paid parental leave
  • Flexible scheduling i.e. no set “work hours”
  • Flexible vacationing, meaning no limiting “vacation policy” (and yes, people actually take vacation here), in addition to holidays off
  • A $2,000 BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) allowance for your computer and other electronic needs offered at your start date and every other year of employment
  • A results-only work environment with casual-attire


This position is remote for now, as our team is at the moment, though we hope to all gather at our office in Plano, Texas again someday, especially to take advantage of our amazing balcony.
