Agrando Lead Frontend Engineer
  • München, Germany
  • Full-time

29 days ago

We're looking for a Lead Front End Engineer that has a passion for hacking, building and owning a great product with high-end customer facing features, internal tools and experiences that help us and our customers become smarter.

Why you should work with us

Agrando is a project absolutely dear to our hearts. We love to contribute to the progress of agriculture. Our main cause is to support the farmer because in the end, it's all about mutual care and cooperation. Agriculture is our home and our origin and we speak from our own experience and know about the specific needs, which makes us the perfect partner for the agricultural trading of the next century. We want to push agriculture forward using state of the art technologies and we constantly stay in motion by taking one step at a time, being excited about everything that comes along. Working with us means to make a difference and to help us developing a meaningful product that in the end has an impact on the future of sustainable agriculture and thus the food you eat everyday.

What you should bring

  • Great communication skills, ability to work in an agile team and workflow experience (git-flow, scrum, etc.)
  • 4+ years proven JS work experience in a professional or institutional environment (including usage of node/npm/yarn)
  • Demonstrable experiences with Vue.js (or at least one out of the following: Backbone/Ember/Angular/React)
  • Demonstrated facility in a HTML/CSS/SASS/LESS environment
  • General understanding of core computer programming, distributed systems, logic & cloud infrastructure as well as concepts like REST or GraphQL
  • Open-mindedness and an attitude that encourages nurturing your skills, learning new ones while at the same time passing on knowledge in areas you excel
  • Passion for writing quality, high-performance and maintainable code following best practices by heart
  • Farming experience (just joking but having played Farming Simulator does count)

What to expect

As a Lead Front End Engineer at Agrando you will lead our team of frontend engineers in the creation of our main SPA frontend for the stakeholders on our trading platform (farmers, retailers, producers) as well as other products. You will make technologies or frameworks like Jest or TailwindCSS work for you. Most importantly, you will be responsible for our Front End architecture which is based on the latest JavaScript frameworks like Vue.js, Nuxt.js, Vuex, Axios as well as REST APIs and GraphQL. You will improve the UX and UI together with our Designers and guide them in their implementation efforts to align the product to their design philosophies. On the other hand, you will directly influence decisions supporting our DevOps, Analytics, Design and Product Department while keeping yourself in sync with the Sales & Marketing team.

Since future logic is also driven by our data intensive infrastructure it is a plus if you want to get in touch with other parts of our product like our BI & Big Data Pipeline (GCP) and Machine Learning strategies. We constantly explore latest technologies to find the best solutions to our next-gen problems - thus hacking around and bringing in your own ideas is something we highly encourage.

Perks

  • Flexible: We have a non-clock-watching culture and while the job is at our Munich Office we are very flexible when you want to work from home on occasion.
  • Events Around the Globe: Not only do we host internal Team Events, but since we are an aspiring AgTech Startup you can join us on various Trips, Conventions, Conferences (We are regular visitors at Vue.js Amsterdam and it always has been a total blast), Tech Fairs, Trade Shows and other Events around the World, related to our business or the technologies involved.
  • Make a Difference: In the end we try to save our farmers money by purchasing agricultural inputs more cost-efficiently, which in turn can save farms with less revenues than production costs from bankruptcy (e.g. coming from low milk prices), while at the same time enabling private suppliers to compete and advance in the digitized agricultural trade of the future.
  • Advanced Training: At Agrando we believe in nurturing our skills through proper knowledge management and personal development. We encourage our employees to learn, teach and improve also through advanced trainings, workshops, (hosted) meetups or other external activities and provide them with the best resources (Books, Coachings & Trainings, Udemy for Business, Nanodegrees from Udacity) for free.
  • Additional Benefits: Weapons of choice (MBP etc.), Qualitrain (subsidized sports), Coffee & Beer, Organic Fruits & YumYum Soups, Switch & XBOX360 Gaming

How to apply

If you are more motivated than others and you want to develop yourself further in an aspiring workplace environment, we are looking forward to receiving your application. Shoot us your résumé, earliest start date and salary expectations via mail to devjobs@agrando.de.

We can't wait to meet you!

G2i Inc Node Engineer
  • Remote Anywhere
  • Full-time

39 days ago

This job post is over 30 days old. It's very likely the position is already filled.
Try applying to a more recent job post instead.

What is G2i?

G2i is a hiring platform for engineers ran by engineers. We are an international collective of industry leaders, conference speakers, and subject matter experts within React, React Native and Node that are passionate about working remotely and doing good in the world.

We match technically vetted engineers to pre-vetted clients. Say goodbye to hunting business, drawing up contracts, and working on dying tech. With one production focused, to the point code challenge (no whiteboarding or algorithms + on your own time) vetted by our engineering team, you'll have the opportunity to receive curated contract opportunities as well as become a part of an international collective of experts. If that sounds up your alley or you would like to find out more, please feel free to reach out to dylan@g2i.co

G2i is short for "Good News to the Internet." We are convinced that our primary vision & mission are good news to companies that need to hire engineers. While we are going about fulfilling that primary vision & mission, we will also be good news to those in need. We are on a mission to help hundreds of street kids in Nairobi, Kenya obtain education, a safe home, parental care, and the love they need. We are also committed to supporting the open-source community by finding ways to financially support those who build the OSS we rely on.

Your background

In simple terms we want to hire an engineer that is excited about building applications in Node, is comfortable working in dynamic engineering environments and has strong communication and documentation skills. Here is what this actually means to us:

  • You have 3+ years of professional development experience and have at least 1 year of Node production experience.
  • You are willing to complete a code challenge that often takes 6-8 hours to complete (there are no due dates or timers however).
  • You live in North America or South America.
  • You are fluent in both verbal and written English and are comfortable communicating directly with technical and non-technical clients.
  • You are available 30-40 hours per week.
  • You might have full-stack experience with either Rails, React, React Native, Apollo Client/GraphQL, native Android (Java, Kotlin) or iOS (Objective C, Swift). But if you don't, that's OK too!
  • You have prior experience as a freelancer or are someone that enjoys having the freedom to choose the types of projects that best align with your interests.
  • You have prior experience working remotely or are excited about doing so.
  • You are flexible and can adjust to the working styles of different teams. Some teams may want to pair-program and have daily interaction others may want engineers to work independently and only interact a few hours per week.

Vetting - Developers and Clients

We match technically vetted engineers to pre-vetted clients who place a high value on engineering and focus on running healthy projects. We take care of contracts, billing, payments and all of the other work that goes into freelancing so that engineers can focus on code and clients on building their product. Our vision is for the hiring process to be simple, trustworthy and enjoyable for both companies and engineers.

When we vet clients we make sure they:

  • Prioritize communication
  • Plan appropriately and have realistic timelines
  • Understand the cost of healthy development and have a budget to pay for it

When we vet engineers we make sure:

  • Engineers vet other engineers
  • Our code challenges are to the point and based on production-level code, no whiteboarding
  • Our process is objective, repeatable and quantitively scored
  • Our process is completely transparent

Who you will work with

We only work with companies that value engineers and run healthy engineering teams. We regularly partner with Y Combinator funded product companies that place a high value on engineering. Some of the companies we have worked with are: Lattice, Major League Soccer, ZeeMee, Software Engineering Daily, and Truebill with new clients coming in weekly.

Diversity

G2i is an equal opportunity employer. We’re dedicated to building a team where diversity in both ideas and identities is not only welcomed, but encouraged. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, national origin, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by law.

Basecamp Rails Programmer
  • Remote Anywhere
  • Full-time

August 7, 2020

This job post is over 30 days old. It's very likely the position is already filled.
Try applying to a more recent job post instead.

Description

We have two rare openings on our Core Product team for Rails programmers. We’ll be accepting applications for the next two weeks, aiming for a flexible start date in October.

We strongly encourage candidates of all different backgrounds and identities to apply. This is an opportunity for us to bring in a different perspective and we’re eager to further diversify our company. Basecamp is committed to building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do the best work of your career. We aren’t looking for ideological clones, but for people who share our beliefs about writing software well.

About the Job
As a programmer on the Core team, you’ll work on shaped projects, big & small, over six-week cycles, typically in tandem with a designer. We’re a small team (just three programmers and three designers) and we work quickly but calmly. You’ll join us, and be responsible for driving projects from concept to completion in an environment of autonomy and creativity.

As a team our focus is firmly on the web: the core technology that powers our applications on all platforms. Ours are majestic monoliths, built using Ruby on Rails. We embrace a classic “HTML over the wire” architecture, of server-rendered HTML, progressively enhanced with JavaScript and CSS. If you think this sounds a lot like the Golden Age of Web Development, well, we couldn’t agree more.

This is an extremely exciting time to join the team. We’re currently all-in on HEY, our brand-new email service, and there’s a ton of fresh work to be done, bugs to fix, and features to polish. That’s where you’ll spend the bulk of your time to start. But we also have our fair share of work supporting Basecamp versions past, present, and future, as well as a back catalogue of applications that we’re committed to maintaining Until The End of the Internet.

Here are some things we’ve worked on recently to give you a sense of what you’ll be doing day-to-day:

  • Building out a subscription system to allow for free trials, upgrades, credit card payments, cancellations, and everything else needed to launch a new product
  • Creating an email export system using the MBOX format, ensuring that even large mailboxes can be exported efficiently
  • Designing a global document browser for convenient access to every mail attachment from every sender, filterable and ordered by recency
  • Revising our billing system to charge EU VAT where applicable, from payment flows and invoices to internal APIs and support tooling
  • Blocking activity trackers and spy-pixels in incoming mail using a variety of techniques, including image and asset proxying for broad protection
  • Collaborating with the Android and iOS teams on cross-cutting and platform-specific features
  • Investigating and fixing a race condition when processing incoming email that’s resulting in random duplicate entries

About You
We’re looking for candidates with strong track records of putting Rails to work and bringing products to life. You should be experienced in the framework, in Ruby, and with the staples of full-stack web development: HTTP, HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. But just because you're experienced doesn't mean we expect you to hit the ground running. You'll have a gentle, intentional on-boarding experience and time to learn & grow comfortable with our systems, processes, and people.

You might have a Computer Science degree or you might not. That’s not what we’re looking for. We care about what you can do and how you do it, not about how you got here. A history of conscientious, thoughtful work speaks volumes.

You’re a Manager of One. A committed generalist, eager learner, and curator of the essential. You take ownership and you see things through. You can take a stand yet commit even when you disagree. This is a challenging position for a senior-level programmer, but imposters take heart; we are too.

You're a clear writer. The bulk of our work is written, from the code and interfaces we design, to the pull request discussions and long-form proposals we make. Effective, concise writing leads to effective, concise code.

Basecamp is a remote-first company, and this is a remote job. We're hiring from anywhere that can maintain 3-4 hours overlap with the US-Central Time zone during a normal working day. This might been a 11:00-19:00 schedule from Europe, but we're not hiring from locations that require a graveyard shift to make the overlap happen.

Applicants from outside of the US will be offered a contractor role on comparable terms and equal pay with our domestic employees.

Benefits & Compensation
Basecamp pays in the top 10% of the industry based on San Francisco rates. Same position, same pay, no matter where you live. The salary for this position is $186,850 (Senior Programmer).

Benefits at Basecamp are all about helping you lead a healthy life outside of work. We won’t treat your life as dead code to be optimized away with shallow perks. You won’t find lures to keep you coding ever longer. We believe quality time to focus on work starts with quality time to think, exercise, prepare a meal, be with family & friends, and of course, time to yourself.

We offer fully paid parental leave. We work 4-day weeks in the summer (Northern Hemisphere), and offer a month-long sabbatical every 3 years. We subsidize your home office, wellness and fitness interests, and continuing education. We offer a generous annual charitable contribution match. All on top of top-tier health insurance and a retirement plan with company match. See our full list.

How to Apply
Please submit an application that speaks directly to this position. Tell us about yourself, about what you can bring to Basecamp, and about Basecamp’s role in your future. Tell us about something you’ve done, something that’s relevant to the kind of work we do, something that excites you. Be descriptive, but don’t feel the need to write a novel -- 500 words or so should be plenty.

We’re accepting applications until August 19, 2020, at 7PM US-Central time. There’s no benefit to filing early, so take your time.

We expect to take a few weeks to review all applications. You’ll hear from us by September 4, about advancement to a take-home technical exercise. The exercise is representative of the kind of day-to-day work we do. We invite fewer than 20 candidates to this stage, and those candidates should expect to spend upwards of a full day (but no more!) completing this test. Please consider whether you'd be willing to dedicate that time before applying.

After the written test, the top candidates will proceed to the interview stages. Expect 2-3 interviews, all one hour, all remote, with your future colleagues, on your schedule. We'll talk through your background, your approach to work, and dive into your technical knowledge. No gotchas, brainteasers, or whiteboards.

We aim to make an offer by early October with a start date later that month.

Please note that we’re unable to offer individual feedback during the screening process. We usually see 1,000+ applications for developer roles, and our hiring team simply doesn’t have the bandwidth to offer personalized feedback before the code-review round.

This is a demanding application process and significant career move to consider. We appreciate you giving us that consideration, and we promise to give you our full attention in return. We look forward to hearing from you!
