  • Full-time

September 28, 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.

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

Silverfin Experienced Ruby Developer
  • Remote CET +/- 3h
  • Full-time

September 24, 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.

If you’re any good at Ruby, this is probably not the first job ad you’ve seen, so we’ve done our best to stand out while also accurately presenting what we’re all about. If it sounds like you would enjoy working with us, don’t hesitate to apply or drop us a line with questions on engineering-recruitment@silverfin.com.

Ahum. Here it comes.

What’s a Silverfin?

At Silverfin we’re trying to apply the promise of software to the age-old industry of accounting. With our SaaS we’re automating a large chunk of the busy-work that accountants are currently handling manually, and are building new tools so they can provide better services to their customers. We aim to optimize their workflow in such a way that accountants can spend more time on the much more impactful and rewarding work of advising their customers, the business owners.

The good news is we’re succeeding in doing exactly that. Every day more than 15.000 financial service professionals use Silverfin to help and advise more than 200.000 businesses. Our customers adore us! The even better news is there’s still plenty left to work on, and that’s where we hope you come in.

What makes the engineering team at Silverfin special?

We’re a remote-first engineering team of 25 people distributed in 14 different countries. A priority for us is maintaining proper work-life balance. We avoid meetings as much as possible, accept deadlines only when absolutely necessary, and never expect anyone to work longer hours than they’ve signed up for. A day in our working lives is pretty boring in this regard, and we feel that’s exactly how it should be.

Working with us means you can be flexible with your schedule. It’s OK to disappear for a few hours in the middle of the day to run some errands, get a haircut, pick up the kids — whatever reason, you don’t need to explain yourself. You also fully decide when you take time off: our team is sufficiently varied and well organized that there are always enough people around to handle the load, and in the rare cases it’s not, we will decrease the load instead of asking people to move their holiday.

Being remote-first means we favor asynchronous communication. We don’t shy away from chatting in Slack, but the important decisions or discussions are done in Gitlab issues, over email, or in our wiki, so there’s a written, persisted record. We’re mindful of maintaining long chunks of focussed time, which means we avoid @-mentions or PMs on Slack, and other triggers and interrupts. We encourage using Slack’s DnD function, especially when you’re not working!

We’d be really happy to welcome you in our #dev channel, but it’s not just virtual: we make sure we regularly get to see each other in real life too. Twice a year we fly the whole engineering team together to a different location in Europe, and at least once a year we join up with the rest of the company so we can spend some time together with the other departments.

What does working at Silverfin look like?

We work in nimble teams around 5 people in size, with each team taking ownership of a specific set of features of the application. Teams are responsible for a full slice across the stack, so both the backend as well as the frontend of each part is maintained by the same people.

You’ll be supported by our UI designer who develops and maintains HTML and CSS components into a reusable UI-framework, and even builds Vue.js prototypes where necessary, handling compatibility problems with different browsers for you, and making sure everything is responsive as well.

Our ops team ensures things run smoothly, deploys happen correctly, and will work with you when issues should arise. We’re enthusiastic followers of the devops mindset, which means ops and developers work together to solve problems, and empower each-other to be self-sufficient, instead of throwing problems over the wall to the “other side”.

Our stack is Vue.js and vanilla JS with a sprinkling of jQuery on the frontend and an up-to-date Rails monolith on the backend. We use PostgreSQL and Redis for persistence and caching, and everything is running on a Kubernetes cluster in Google Cloud. Our daily tools include GitLab, Quip and Slack, with Zoom as our remote conferencing tool of choice.

No code gets deployed without a code-review by a peer and testing is a must. Our pipeline automates deployment when the suite is green, and deploys happen dozens of times a day. Each team is currently doing Kanban, but they’re free to follow whatever process suits them best. There are regular retros held to work towards continuous improvement.

Software for accountants is not considered to be very exciting, but we have our fair share of technical challenges. To give you a sense of scale: our database exceeds 7TB*, and our largest table recently crossed the 10 billion row mark. We interface with more than 30 different external APIs, and provide third parties an API of our own.

*: Our ops team noted that this actually isn’t that hard to achieve if you’re just indexing everything, but it still sounds impressive, right?

What does your future look like?

Personal growth is key to staying motivated. At Silverfin you don’t need to move to management in order to get promoted. We see the individual contributor track and the management track as two different growth paths which every engineer can follow and switch between. You can be promoted, including pay raises, as a contributor just like as a manager.

Everyone has a €1000 yearly budget to spend on conferences, courses, workshops or other training to improve their skills and level up. This also includes accommodation, travel costs. If the conference is on a workday you’ll get paid like any normal day. Silverfin colleagues regularly visit conferences across the world. Are you going to Euruko this year? Come say hi!

We’re looking to hire a lot of new colleagues, and by the end of the year we’d like to have a couple of more teams. Each new team would also need a new teamlead, and we prefer to promote from within the engineering team. This means if you’d like to step onto the management track, there will be plenty of opportunities to do so in the near future. We pro-actively keep track of who would be interested, and provide feedback and learning opportunities to work towards such a goal.

What are we looking for?

  • You’re experienced in both Ruby and Rails, and also understand where the boundaries lie between them. You can code in Ruby without any of Rails’ training wheels if necessary.
  • You’re up for mentoring coworkers and can give in-depth, productive feedback during code reviews. While you appreciate the small stuff, you recognize bikeshedding and can avoid its pitfalls.
  • You code with reason and can justify the important decisions you made during development.
  • You can communicate clearly in English, both written and verbally.
  • You know and can apply best practices when relevant. That means the usual like version control, testing, and refactoring; but also higher level concepts such as good object oriented design.
  • You're aware of the trade-offs involved in proper engineering and can make balanced business decisions, keeping in mind all the stakeholders of the project.
  • You’ve got opinions on code design and you can discuss them, but you’re professional enough to not let those opinions get in the way of a consensus if necessary.

What can we offer you?

  • Actual, proper work-life balance
  • Choose your own working hours and work 100% remotely
  • Personal growth training and opportunities
  • Join a distributed remote-first engineering team with 25 colleagues in 14 different countries
  • A refreshing work environment with professional, friendly and welcoming colleagues
  • A €1000 yearly budget for conferences, courses, workshops or other expenses that will improve your skills

Requirements

  • You have at least 4 years of experience working with Ruby, or 2 years of experience with Ruby and 4 years in other languages.
  • You get Rails
  • Your work hours have some overlap with EU business hours (we require your local timezone to be within CET +/- 3h)

Nice to have’s

These would be nice but are definitely not necessary. Don’t worry if none of the following applies to you.

  • Experience as a remote worker in a fully remote team
  • Experience with Javascript (ES6) and frontend frameworks
  • Experience working with large datasets and the problems they bring
  • Experience in Fintech
  • Accounting knowledge

The people who work at Nava have a fiduciary duty to our stated mission: to improve access, effectiveness, and simplicity of government services. We see this as an opportunity, but it is also important to highlight the challenges we face in advance.

You will be working within the government ecosystem, which means working dynamically, with other government contractors and civil servants. Working with people outside of your company means you'll likely encounter different working styles and cultural norms. At the same time, working as part of a larger team allows us to deliver on projects of larger scale and complexity.

The government also imposes a level of bureaucracy that is typically not present in a company of our size in the private sector. We operate in a regulated environment, where checks and compliance is built into the process of building software. This can make the path to production slower and some decisions, such as tools and processes, lie outside of our control. However, beyond writing code, finding and recommending ways to improve the way government software is built is one of the highest-leverage ways we help fulfill our mission. While our work is to build new systems with up-to-date technology, we have to do that within an existing ecosystem. Our work is building functional, resilient software for production. We don't build flashy prototypes that don't work for real people.

What you'll do

  • Collaborate with the product team, government stakeholders, and other contractors to build new systems and make improvements to existing systems.
  • Design and spec out major functionality and flows.
  • Drive ideas from concept to production, from sketching and wireframing to implementation and launching to production.
  • Participate in planning and breaking down requirements into tasks.
  • Review code and give feedback on technical specs.
  • Make improvements by proposing new tools and practices.

What we're looking for

  • At least two years of experience working in an agile, multidisciplinary team environment, preferably designing and building medium or large-scale web applications
  • Experience mapping and driving systemic improvements within complex service environments
  • Understanding of web and mobile user interface design best practices
  • Significant experience in JavaScript, CSS, and responsive design
  • Demonstrated ability to design, build, and test semantic, accessible, Section 508 compliant web applications.
  • Understanding of inclusive design methodologies
  • Some experience with a modern JavaScript framework, such as React, Vue.js, Angular or Ember
  • Familiarity with a JavaScript testing framework such as Jest, Jasmine, or Mocha
  • Tenacity to dive into problems and iterate in working code
  • Equal parts systems thinker and advocate for users
  • Highly resourceful, reliable, and detail-oriented
  • Ability to think strategically around trade-offs and short term vs. long term benefits
  • An adaptive, empathetic, collaborative and positive mindset
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, technical and otherwise

Things that are not important to us

  • Whether or not you have a CS or engineering degree.
  • Whether or not you have GitHub contributions. (It's great if you do, but we don't expect it.)
  • Whether or not you have worked at a well-recognized company.

Other requirements:

  • Education: Due to contractual requirements, this role requires a Bachelor's Degree (in any discipline).
  • Residency: Lived in United States at least 3 years out of the last 5 years
