Low-Code Backend Specialist
Headquarters: Chicago, IL
About The Position:
We are looking for someone with experience developing in low-code back-end software like Xano, Supabase and Backendless. This is a 40 hour/week, contractor position, starting at $52,000 USD per year. Those hours would fall between roughly 9am-6pm Central Time US, with flexibility to adjust these hours to better fit your local time zone after a successful onboarding period.
Our product, Draftbit, is a low-code mobile app builder built on a React Native/Expo stack. While much of the app development done on Draftbit is visual vs. writing code, our platform is not "drag-and-drop." We provide our customers a lot of flexibility in the type and complexity of the apps they build. Draftbit does not host our own database, rather our customers "bring their own back-ends" by integrating third-party backends/databases via REST API. It's also common that more complex apps require importing packages and inserting custom code in order to build features that are not yet part of the core Draftbit platform.
To support our customers who don't have sufficient technical backgrounds to successfully work with backend integrations or custom code, we provide a service we call Draftbit Experts. Experts are full-time members of the Draftbit team who work directly with our customers to build parts or all of their app for them in Draftbit.
Oftentimes, customers of Draftbit Experts need us to develop and integrate back-ends for the apps. In these cases, we design the database schemas and build these back-ends in a low-code platform, often Xano or Supabase.
This role would be primarily focused on database design and back-end development in those platforms, then working in Draftbit to integrate those back-ends to enable the desired experience in the customer app.
