The Role 
As a Fullstack (React) Developer, you will be part of the cross-functional team working in sprints with a flexible process. Our teams have DevOps and Quality Assistance engineers working together with both back-end and front-end developers to own the product from inception all the way to deploying and monitoring in production.  
On the front-end, you can use React or Angular, back-end is mainly C# and we are actively migrating to .NET Standard/Core and AWS. We take testing seriously, and it's the developers who are responsible for producing not only unit and integration tests, but also acceptance tests, end-to-end tests, and smoke tests.
You can build modular services and APIs with your team and as a global organization also have plenty of collaboration with other teams across the globe.  We value RFC (request for comments) to drive change within instead of top-down management.  

Main responsibilities:

  • Architect, design and develop new software products and components 
  • Review the merge requests in order to ensure the quality of the codebase
  • Write high quality, tested and maintainable code while using the best and latest technologies 
  • Maintain and constantly improve documentation 

Required skills:

  • You´re persistent at finding solutions and want to get things done
  • You´re not afraid of speaking up and trying new approaches 
  • You value self-learning and want to learn from others 
  • You feel confident in React and Javascript
  • You have solid CSS knowledge
  • Your experience with AWS, RabbitMQ or Docker is a bonus 
  • You have knowledge of back-end frameworks (eg .NET)
