Are you the kind of frontend developer who wants to do good with your code? Code that maybe even helps people sleep well at night, contributes to safety and seriousness, reduces stress and brings harmony. If you at the same time like to be part of something small, steady but very much growing - take your chance to do good even at work. Hello karma! And hello Qasa!
Qasa is like an Airbnb for long stay accommodation in the Nordics, and we have over a million visitors every month. In 2019 we were acquired by Blocket as one of the fastest-growing startups in Stockholm. And we still are. We operate as an individual company but handle the housing rental part for Blocket. So we are backed by Blocket, and then our Group Schibsted. That is stable! We recently brought our product to Norway and Finland, and will continue expanding and shipping it to the rest of the world.
What you'll do
As a frontend developer you will improve the experience for our customers in a lot of different domains such as; matching, pricing, discovery, signing, and payment security. This means you’ll dig into a broad variety of areas and tackle a lot of different challenges.
Who are you?
You’re a frontend developer enthusiast with a few years of experience in React. We believe you are comfortable with both design, development, and maintenance. We are a small, but fast-growing company, so thriving in an ever-changing environment with a growth mindset is key. Not to forget, the importance of collaboration. We are a small team - we all need to help each other, no matter what it is.
Hi we are the Qasa tech team!
The best part with Qasa is that we bring a fair and easy product to a market that so many have to face (and sometimes also fear) since it often feels difficult and impossible. In addition, our colleagues are really great in what they do but also great people. The company is still very small so you really get to know your colleagues and learn from each others. In the same time, it feels safe to have the economical backup by Blocket and Schibsted. So even if we are a startup, you do not have to worry about if the company still will excist in twelve months.
Lo as manager is wonderful! It is difficult to find a person who is more empathetic, and he is incredibly sharp in tech. He brings a focus that always is clear, well thought and reasonable. Also, he always looks for improvement opportunities on all levels - both for the individual and the company. You can always ask for help, he will always ask for our opinions and thoughts. He really makes us a team that together moves forward.
Say hello to your manager!
