Software Developer II

Location: Nashville, TN

Introduction to IdG:
It’s nice to meet you! We’ve probably already met once or twice. Identity Group (IdG) is a 65-year-old American manufacturing company that provides signs, visual décor, and office products for thousands of brands, spaces and individuals. From Marriott Hotels to the new Salesforce Tower in downtown San Francisco, we create signage and visual decor solutions that fill these spaces from top to bottom. And we don’t stop there. We pump out everything from business cards to stamps and note cards, too. With 285,000 square feet of manufacturing space across 6 campuses, we’re one-half creative thinkers and one-half mad scientists. We take a lot of pride in helping all our customers make a lasting impression.

Our Team Mission:
IdG has created a brand-new eCommerce and Digital Technology division. Our team is responsible for designing, building and marketing the IdG sub-brands and platforms from the ground up.

You Should Apply If:
• Creating something from scratch excites you.
• You live a “We” vs. “Me” mindset.
• Big projects with big outcomes motivate you.
• Others would describe you as high-energy.

About Your Role:
We’ve got some fun sub-brands looking for someone to write awesome code (.NET, Java, JavaScript, NODjs, etc.) that upholds the individual personality and creativity of our online brands. You will also be a part of a high-production, Agile oriented team of fun, motivated developers.

Three of the four sub-brands are eCommerce related:
• Meet, a spanking new lifestyle/home décor-focused brand that has a plethora of very cool products that the company has never offered before to a B2C audience.
• Meet, a property we’re in the middle of re-designing with a product catalog of additional office products, stock signage and custom signage for people who want to make a monstrous impression in every interaction. It’s loud, fun and bold in every way.
• Meet Redi-Tag; an office supplies brand for the most productive people who need to always be “Redi.”.
• Lastly, we have the Identity Group (IdG) parent brand itself. We are mostly a pit stop for wholesalers and resellers who need interior signage and visual décor for their commercial/retail spaces.

Essential Qualities:
• A great planner, coder, and creator who can bounce back and forth between creative brands to traditional brands.
• Loves to write stories and generate healthy interactions to accelerate development.
• A great communicator and team player who appreciates clear direction and collaborates well.
• Loves to help create, manage, deploy and optimize web-facing eCommerce properties.
• Someone who enjoys planning and developing and feels comfortable using tools/apps enabling customers to build it themselves with iPhone and apps. Of course, you’ll have the support of a rad creative team, but it’s crucial you can come up with concepts on your own and a bonus if you can execute the simplest of your ideas on your own.
