Remote job description
WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR . . .Versus Systems is looking for a software engineer to build our web dashboards, support and improve our Elixir-built API, and build an incredible code to change entertainment. Our product suite allows content developers to create unique, prize-based matches for their consumers, changing the experience of how we interact with entertainment and media.
