Software Developer

TFG (The Franchise Group), a growing creative and marketing agency, is looking for a software developer to help create and imagine development solutions for everything from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies. TFG has a small but mighty development team that delivers web applications and content management systems in partnership with our agency video, event and marketing teams. We are predominately a custom WordPress shop that also creates custom software (primarily portals and database management tools). Work on a team with two other developers and balance solo work with teamwork as needed. Experience with both front-end and back-end development is a bonus.

  • Linux
  • Docker
  • TypeScript
  • PHP
  • Git
  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL

This is a contract to a full-time position that involves a 6-9 months contract period with the opportunity of becoming a full-time salaried employee. If you are interested in becoming an integral part of a cutting-edge creative and marketing firm, this is it!

We offer flex time, in-office snacks and drinks, amazing coworkers, office dogs, interesting (and some really boring) work that can help build a fierce portfolio. There is some mentorship but we are looking for self-starters looking to explore.
