Employment Type

Full time

We’re building out the engineering team of a stealth venture in the direction of social impact; a financial wellbeing platform that aims to give people full control of their retirement income and short and long-term financial stability. Here, the 'initial commit' would belong to you and you'd have the opportunity to shape the engineering culture of the organisation, lead the frontend development of our platform and build the team of engineers around you. To ensure that you feel as much at home with the product as everybody else, we will be offering options in addition to your salary as you will certainly be a part of the end-product! We feel strongly about developing a warm, inclusive and diverse community of engineers that follow shared principles. Naturally, these will be iterated on over time and some of those I'd like to share are:

  • Full-stack mindset. I'd like everybody to be able to jump around the stack and support irrespective of deep backend, infrastructure, web or mobile experience, to drive the team forward and create new learning opportunities for everybody
  • You build it, you run it. Everybody will be responsible from their code, all the way from localhost to production
  • Continuous deployment with an emphasis on trunk-based development
  • Close collaboration with design and product to shape the user-experience
  • Using best practices for maintaining code-quality and testing
  • Mentoring and upskilling fellow engineers
  • Creating a comfortable, safe workspace where everybody will be respected for what makes them, them.
Remote to start, we will be based in central Berlin. Snacks and equipment you'll help us to define. Dogs are allowed (trained for office)! Skills required for Senior React Engineer:
  • You have more than 5 years of software development experience, working in product-focussed, agile environments.
  • Proficiency in React.js and Javascript with a strong focus on quality, testability and best practices
  • You have solid experience with other front-end technologies Webpack, SASS, Jest/Cyprus, PWAs, SSR
  • Experience and/or interest in React-Native or mobile app development would be hugely beneficial
  • You are passionate about UI/UX and modern Web design
Skills required for Senior React Native Engineer:
  • You have more than 5 years of software development experience, working in product-focussed, agile environments.
  • You are an experienced React Native engineer with a track record of shipping high quality applications.
  • You know the foundations and several frameworks from the iOS and/or Android SDKs very well.
  • You are comfortable debugging problems anywhere in the mobile application stack: persistence, networking or user interface.
  • You have plenty of experience with deploying apps to the Google Play and iOS App Stores
General skills for both positions:
  • You are product oriented, pragmatic executor and able to weigh-up the need to validate features and build out an MVP before digging in too deeply. You are calm and focused under pressure, and consider work-life balance essential for long-term happiness and productivity.
  • You have a formal education in computer science? Cool. You don’t? Doesn't matter.
  • Experience with building CI/CD pipelines and with containerising applications with Docker
  • Experience in backend technologies or infrastructure (have worked with AWS tools) is a plus
  • You believe effective and successful work is made possible by clear and honest communication
  • Business fluent in English, with excellent communication skills
If this sounds exciting to you, we look forward to your application!
