Waxlog – Full-Stack Developer, Contract (Remote)

About Waxlog

Waxlog is an online platform which gives record collectors a new way to explore and share their collections online. Using 3D graphics, it brings the real-world magic of flipping through stacks of vinyl into the digital space. Currently operating as an invite-only beta, we’re building towards our public launch in Summer 2024.

About the position
