Here at Archaic Future, we enjoy building out great products and websites for our clients across a range of technologies. Small projects are taken on by a one or two-person dev team team with project management support. For larger projects, we bring a combination of independent developers and designers on board to create the perfect mix of complementary skills & teamwork.
Designers: We love hiring independent designers! We love the way you think and we love having creative energy to envision new branding, logos, and identity for our clients without being confined to the day-to-day design work of being in-house. We let you pick the tools for the job, whether that's InVision, Sketch, or creating mock-ups by hand. What works for you works for us!
Developers: Are you a generalist or full-stack engineer? We'd love to have you on board! If you're a developer that loves working in the front-end to code beautifully interactive sites, then this is also the place for you! Our development teams range in size from one - a few, so we like working with developers that have a strong sense of ownership and are up for the challenge of taking vague client requirements and turning them into functional & reliable features.
We're not a language specific shop because we believe in choosing the right tool for the job. Currently, we gravitate to Ruby for our static site development or Rails backends, and we like React for web apps. We also use Swift as our primary language for iOS development. We don't tolerate brilliant jerks and we don't hire rockstars.
Archaic Future is based in Seattle, Washington but you don't have to be! We co-work when convenient or desired, and remote work the rest of the time. In general, we set our own schedules and aim for 20 hours or fewer in any given week.
Nitty Gritty Details: We keep an ongoing list of independent designers and developers. If you're looking for a long-term full-time job, then AF is probably not the right fit. However, if you are looking to pick up side projects, work part-time (yay for part time!), or add a few things to a portfolio then please reach out. All of our hires are contracts which will receive a 1099.
Jr. Devs/Designers: Are you fresh out of a bootcamp or self-taught? Send us an email with more information on your background. If you're a junior designer looking to learn how to handle clients and interpret requests, we can provide that experience. If you're a junior dev looking for code reviews and mentoring, we've got your back. We ❤ juniors.
