Full Stack Web Developer
We’re a small SaaS startup based in the heart of the Copenhagen startup scene. We take pride in helping more than 300.000 users around the world keep a Mileage Logbook. No one likes to do mileage documentation - so we try to remove this trivial work and make our customers working life simpler while saving them time and money using our mobile app.
We’re bootstrapped, profitable and currently growing our team, so you’ll be an essential part of a small team at a very exciting stage.
Who are you?
You take pride in building software that is easy to use and write code that is easy to understand. You like complex challenges and take your time getting to the bottom of all aspects so you can find simple solutions that ensure the future of the codebase.
Our user base is growing fast, and you will be responsible for building out our backend to handle our growth and for adding new features across our backend, API and web application. The backend is built in Ruby on Rails with PostgreSQL.
You will also be building new business tools and implement new processes to make our customers lives even easier. As we make pragmatic choices on whether to add features to our existing Rails app or build new services and frontend apps, you will be part of deciding the technologies we use going forward.
You should have:
- 3+ years experience with an open source web framework such as Ruby on Rails, Node.js or Django.
- An in-depth experience with the basic web fundamentals and a general interest in creating great web applications.
- Ability to take ownership in the process of building a feature, from concept to release, working closely with the rest of the team to ensure a high-quality implementation
We would love if you:
- Have experience working with large databases (we’re using PostgreSQL) and optimizing load times using indexes, caching etc.
- Have experience testing with Rspec and Capybara
- Have tried building your own Rest API and integrate with other API’s. Experience integrating with Stripe, Google API’s or ERP systems would be a big plus.
- Have some insight into devops. We are currently migrating from our own dedicated servers to Google Cloud.
The platform & our philosophy
The Driversnote platform is based on a mobile app built in React Native and a web app & backend built in Ruby on Rails. The API handles all requests from our mobile app, while the web application allows users to sign up, upgrade to a paid subscription, work with their data and much more.
We’re very product-focused with a profound focus on continuously listening to and learning from our users, and are always trying to create an even better and more seamless experience for our customers - and we expect you to share this focus.
As a small (but growing) startup we tend to be pragmatic in our choices of architecture. The Majestic Monolith has served us well, but as we continue to grow the user base and the team, we also see the need gradually split the backend and web frontend into multiple services and applications to continue to scale. We don’t obsess over Test Driven Development, but do see the value in testing the important stuff. We’re pragmatic, keep it lean and try to focus on pushing small and often.
What do we offer?
We have a relaxed work environment with a flat hierarchy, flexible work hours and we strongly believe that it should be fun to go to work.
You get to join a team of highly experienced entrepreneurs and tech people that help each other develop their skills and grow every day. We set aside dedicated resources for everyone to take courses, read books and go to conferences, staying up-to-date with the newest technologies and trends.
We’re located in the heart of Copenhagen, in Matrikel1, a cool new co-working space, where you can network and party with other startups and plenty of cool people.
