What? ?you? ?will? ?be? ?doing

As a Senior Full-Stack developer, you will join one of our cross-functional feature teams. Here you will be working towards bi-weekly sprint goals alongside your teammates; full-stack developers, tester, and product owner.

Software quality is essential to us and also to you. You will participate with pull requests and pair programming sessions to ensure that the code that goes to production fits our architecture and is of high quality. To minimize functional issues, you will add unit tests, end-to-end tests, and additional monitoring and logging in Grafana and Graylog to spot and fix production issues.

As a company and team, we continuously improve ourselves, reduce wasteful activities, and become more effective. You will participate in this effort with feedback and a vision. We are a flat transparent organization, and your opinions matter to us.

You will need to be a strong learner. We use an up-to-date modern technology stack running on Google Computing Cloud, consisting of Apache Spark, Scala with ZIO, and a front-end that we are migrating from ClojureScript to Typescript. To accelerate innovation and creativity, we spend 10% of our time on novel ideas during the exploration days.
