We’re looking for an experienced developer to become a part of our close-knit remote engineering team and help build high quality products and tools. You should have plenty of experience building advanced SPA web applications, having a knack for good UX, be a master in JavaScript and CSS, being able to inspect browser performance bottlenecks, adopt any kind of modern front-end framework, implement responsive visualizations, write tests and occasionally touch back-end code if needed.

If you are a positive-oriented hacker who does not fit the traditional internet company structure, and enjoys working in a connected team of developers who care deeply about writing clean, maintainable, and reasonably tested code, this job might be the right fit for you. We are not looking for someone who regularly switches companies, or who is only here for a huge salary. Our mission is to develop a strong team that shares our values of personal growth, education, compassion and true friendship.

Collectively, we want to bring forward-thinking and innovative solutions to the world. We are a bootstrapped company that believes the future belongs to smaller companies that don’t subscribe to the 9-to-5 corpo way of doing things. We believe that the Silicon Valley era is over, and we are building a business which allows us to enjoy the freedom of working remotely where each of us has the autonomy and flexibility to have a high impact on the world with our work.

Requirements


  • Advanced knowledge of modern JavaScript,
  • Advanced knowledge of CSS - implementing maintainable CSS architectures,
  • Advanced knowledge of layout libraries, such as Bootstrap, Tailwind CSS,...
  • Excellent sense for good UX practices,
  • Solid knowledge of Ember.js or exceptional willingness to learn it,
  • Solid experience with writing front-end tests (unit and integration tests)

Nice to have


  • Experience with charting libraries, e.g. Highcharts,
  • Experience with visualizations on the web, e.g. SVG and D3 library,
  • Experience with D3,
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails.

What is it going to look like


  • Working in a relaxed atmosphere in a small distributed team of highly skilled developers,
  • Flexible working hours - choose your own schedule,
  • Daily communication and updates in Slack,
  • Two weekly conference calls for updates and planning,
  • Performing planned work using Kanban methodology,
  • Being attentive to daily operations, system status, and production incidents.
We're a 100% remote company, so you need to be autonomous, self-driven, and disciplined with your time.

To apply, please provide us with your recent CV and at least with some of the following:

  • Contributions to open source,
  • Cool projects that you created and are proud of that you can walk us through,
  • A decent portfolio of experiments or other visual material that shows a significant level of caring about your craft.
Interested? Tell us about yourself, why you'd like to join, and how your work routine looks like.

The SEO Platform Designed For Experts, Focused On Accelerating Growth

Create a visual language that synthesizes classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science.

Our company was founded in 2014. Rooted in Slovenia and starting small, we’ve steadily been growing ever since and evolved into an international company that creates indispensable digital tools for internet professionals.

We’re a small group of musicians, travellers, surfers, curlers, readers, poets, handymen, gardeners, activists, thought-provokers, mountaineers, crafters, authors, philosophers, cat lovers, explorers, designers, connoisseurs, futurists, and most importantly, mature and hard-working people who get work done.

Great challenges and obstacles are fuel to our motivation. We believe the only way to be able to live a free and content life is by taking responsibility for yourself and your work. Therefore we like to encourage ourselves and each other to grow by creating and (re)evaluating possible solutions, making the right decisions, developing and sharing skills, and looking for the new opportunities where our work can make a difference.

Our company is bootstrapped and break-even since the first year of operation. We don’t spend more than we earn, and we don't waste resources on things that do not matter. We’re in business to stay in business.
