  • Experience in at least some of these technologies: TypeScript, JavaScript, React 
  • Appreciation towards clean and maintainable code and reliable software 
  • Interest to develop oneself and share knowledge to others 
  • Efficiency in verbal and written communication in English 


What we consider as an advantage: 

  • Experience in d3, GraphQL or CI pipelines 
  • Experience or knowledge of Ruby or Kotlin (Not a regular need, but nice to have more expertise in the team) 
  • Experience on working in agile software development team 
  • Enthusiasm towards improving frontend code performance 


What we offer you in return: 

  • An international career and learning opportunities in a rapidly growing software company 
  • A respectful and professional, yet easy-going atmosphere where individual thinking is encouraged 
  • A fun, ambitious, and committed team of smart people to work with 
  • Support from the team members 
  • A team culture of working together with pair programming and peer focus sessions while respecting individuals own preferences 
  • Responsibilities in challenging projects from day one, several different kinds of work to choose from 
  • We promote remote working and flexible working hours, although we also value collaborating face to face (outside Covid, that is) 
  • Mobile phone, broadband and healthcare benefits 
  • Plenty of vocational clubs and opportunities: brewing, orienteering, gym at the office, training, mentorship programme, hack days etc. 
  • We like to move fast: see your good ideas realise without extensive bureaucracy
