Hello, we’re Shift Lab.

Simply put, we are a development consultancy. We love design and have an amazing roster of clients and partners we work with to create amazing websites and products.

+ You are a problem solver and can work your way out of a corner

Bonus point for:
+ Experience in Javascript, especially React and Node
+ Experience in Ruby on Rails development
+ Knowledge of PHP / MySQL development and the LAMP stack
+ Knowledge of versioning systems like Git

What’s in it for you?

Flexibility.
Have a life and work a portion of your time from where you’re most comfortable. We work remotely Mondays and Fridays and in our casual NYC or Lancaster, PA studios the rest of the week.

Variety.
Play to your strengths and build new ones. You will be challenged regularly and will learn constantly.

Fun. Beer. Benefits.
Besides a fun working environment and free beer, full-time employees at Shift Lab enjoy competitive salaries, medical/dental/vision benefits packages, employee disability insurance, 3 weeks paid time off annually, and 10 paid company holidays per year.
