85/hr React, GraphQL, AWS. 6-18 Months. 100% Telecommute Contract. Detroit, MI et al. (L-3984) (A)


Are you a full-stack developer? Do you have recent exposure to React, AWS (Lambda, serverless, etc.), and/or GraphQL? Then this gig might be of interest to you.

In short, after an architecture review earlier this year, the end client has a strategic initiative to build out a POC that refactors their custom stack around the technologies you see below. The team will be small (2-3 people) and the leadership roles are already covered. What they still need is a senior engineer that works under the architect's direction to drive out the vision associated with the POC. 

Work can be done remotely but ideally, candidates would be open to an initial week or so onsite (expenses paid) to onboard and have kickoff meetings.

So, if this sounds like something you could do, APPLY TODAY!!!
