If you like writing scalable software that impacts large audiences in real-time, vFairs is the place to be. 

We are looking for a Senior Software Developer who can build and extend our virtual event platform & amplify the user experience we deliver to clients. The idea is to keep enhancing our solution with ideas that solve challenging problems our customers face during events. 

This is going to be a high-impact role where the deliverables will be used by thousands of users upon release. You will be required to implement software that is accurate, fast, thoughtful and scalable.

In this role, you’ll be required to understanding business goals and roadmaps from customers/product managers. You will then select the best approach to solve the problem in a generic way that naturally extends the product and implement a solution. We entrust ownership to our developers and let them run with creative ideas.  We also have a development team across Lahore and Dubai who you can look forward to for help and guidance. 

A sizable portion of our clientele is based on North America and we would highly prefer someone who can align their office timings with the US schedule, which would translate to 3 am to 12 pm Pakistan time. We offer a flexible work-from-home policy and provision laptop equipment to facilitate our team members.
