Web Ascender is a small Michigan-based digital agency. We’re big enough to tackle large design and development projects, but small enough to still care about all of the details. We work as trusted advisors to help our clients leverage web technologies to improve processes and grow their business. We love solving unique problems for businesses using web and mobile technology.

Web Ascender is expanding its team and we’d love to have you join us. Our clients range from small businesses to high-profile national and international companies, so you’ll have plenty of variety in your projects.

As a full stack web developer, you'll be working alongside our developers and designers to help create business-critical online systems for our various clients. You'll gain experience in a variety of industries while honing your craft and leveling-up your skills. Our developers contribute to back-end and front-end code and architecture, and have the freedom to innovate around tools and processes. You'll be involved in the full software development lifecycle, from early planning, wireframing, and architecture, through implementation, testing, and deployment.

We use a variety of technologies to build web applications, but our default technology stack is: Ruby on Rails with HAML, Sidekiq, PostgreSQL, Redis, Javascript (Stimulus and Turbo), and Bootstrap CSS. Our default server stack includes Amazon AWS and DigitalOcean.
