Research Square is the leader in ethical author-oriented solutions in the world of academic publishing and we help researchers succeed through our world-class technology-enabled services. We are home to American Journal Experts (AJE), which provides solutions that help researchers communicate their work so they can get back to making discoveries.

We currently have a challenging opportunity for a bright, hardworking, and self-motivated developer. We are looking for a mid- to senior-level developer who exhibits personal humility and who strives to enable the success of their team in our fun and collaborative environment.

What you create will get used! You will also have four days a month to explore innovative ideas and address technical debt outside of our normal development cadence.
