About the Role

Catch&Release Engineering is looking for a full-stack engineer to join our team. You’ll report to the VP of Engineering and be responsible for the frontend and backend code in our system.

You’ll be expected to pick up new concepts quickly and will likely make your first commit on your first day. We expect that all our engineers will provide feedback on how we can learn, grow, and make the engineering department continue to get better.

What You'll Work On

Who We Are

At Catch&Release Engineering, we are striving to not do things just because that's how it's been done. We're in, what we consider to be, a lifelong effort to create the best environment that breeds great work.

In our engineering day-to-day, we strive for clear, easy to understand, and maintainable code. We also believe that great engineering is not about a list of things we have to do, but rather it's a way we have to be about the job to achieve great things.
