Are you a Senior Full-Stack/Backend Developer with the experience, passion and skills needed to create delightful digital products?
We are looking for people who know their stuff, who are passionate about it and want to learn more - not just a person for a specific position. We want this person to be involved in communicating with the clients and we want them to have a say on how something should look and work. Whether you prefer frontend, backend, or full-stack, doesn’t really matter as long as building usable digital services is your thing. As a Senior, you would be responsible for being a hands on lead developer in projects, you might be coaching others to learn more and you will definitely be constantly learning new technologies yourself.
Does this sound like you? Then read on.
You know what it takes to have your client talk with a back-end over a REST API, and even create one when needed. You set up microservices and backends with e.g. Node.js, scala or python. Web applications, you love to create them, to you a browser is not just a rendering tool, it’s your medium of choice. You know how to build a smooth single-page app from the ground up in e.g. React, Angular, or Vue. You're no stranger to HTML and CSS, or looking up DOM elements and setting breakpoints in Chrome's DevTools. You know how to minify, bundle, and get your code running on e.g. Heroku. You are proficient in German and English.
You like to keep yourself up-to-date on the latest happenings in the web development scene. You've probably come across technologies such as Redux, Elm, TypeScript, RxJS, Cycle.js, Purescript or Clojure. Maybe you've even tried running your app on React Native to see how it compares to the web. You can appreciate high-quality web craftsmanship, good open-source libraries and tools and might have published a Node module or contributed to one.
You don't mind some traveling, especially during the onboarding phase to our Munich office.
Here’s what Futurice boils down to: freedom and responsibility. Those are the two most important things on offer here, as far as your quality of life goes.
