How we work
Iteratively. We do 2 weeks sprints, daily deploys (if not more), and timely code reviews in order to ship quickly and minimize bugs.
Collaboratively. We work as a team to help make our product better. As software engineers, we help product and design understand what's possible, what's easy, what's difficult, and what opportunities we see from a technical and non-technical perspective.
Flexibility. While we strive to stick to a plan we think is best for the company, we do actively incorporate experiment learnings and business feedback into our sprints. Flexibility is a must-have trait in our company culture. We also have a flexible remote work policy, vacation policy, and schedule as needed.
You love working on hard problems and are able to build a version 1 of almost anything in a week. You are strong at both backend and frontend web development, though you may lean towards one end.
You are highly passionate about programming and write clean and maintainable code. You always strive to follow best practices and document your code.
Your personality means a lot to us as well as your ability to take your own innovative decisions in your everyday work tasks. We highly value your social skills and capability for cooperation as we are working on a team level.
We also believe that you are a person that loves to work hard in a small fast-moving company where time from decision to action is short. If this is you, continue reading!
