About Zaengle:

Zaengle is a web engineering firm that’s a digital force for good. We build software, digital products, and websites for non-profits, digital agencies, and businesses. We're a 100% remote team across the US and UK. Each team member has a lot of autonomy and influence — this means we only hire folks who are highly motivated, accountable, and operate with integrity. You’ll be encouraged to develop creative solutions to problems, communicate and defend your ideas to clients, manage your responsibilities, and stay up-to-date on the latest best practices.

What We’re Looking For: The Most Important Things

We want to talk to you if you are:

  • Self-motivated. You don’t want to be micromanaged, or have your hand held. You don’t shy away from hard work, and always embrace new challenges.
  • Self-aware. You’re confident in your strengths and know what your weaknesses are. These don’t discourage you, rather, they make you even stronger.
  • Honest. You aren’t perfect, and neither are we. Integrity, honesty, and humility are hallmarks of your life.
  • Generous. You love helping others, sharing your expertise, and creatively giving back.
  • A genuine communicator. When you talk to clients, or your teammates, you’re clear, to the point, confident, and genuine.
  • A learner. When you don’t know something it’s not a roadblock — you passionately seek answers and solutions without being told to.

What We’re Looking For: Other Important Things

We want to talk to you if you are proficient (or willing to learn) in:

  • PHP / Laravel
  • VueJS
  • API engineering
  • CMS experience (Craft, Statamic) a plus
