This role is available either from Zürich, Switzerland or remote within EU.

Are you passionate about building scalable, performant web interfaces and delivering a great customer experience? Are you ready for a new challenge in a leading Swiss PropTech start-up with global growth track-record? Then apply now and become part of our mission!

 

You will be part of an agile and self organizing development team. On a day-to-day basis you will:

 

  • Create features. Improve Locatee Analytics and help our customers to make even better decisions. Work on new features on a modern stack, from discovery to refinement to implementation. You’ll be working with Angular, Java Spring Boot, Github Actions, Docker, Kubernetes and Google Cloud. We keep our stack modern and fun to work with.
  • Be a great team member. Do code reviews and story kickoffs. Pair with other engineers. Help to triage and fix bugs. Learn and share knowledge. 
  • Work on developer experience. Manage technical debt. Improve code maintainability. Simplify processes and tooling. Keep Locatee a great place to work and our product fast and stable.

 

 

WHAT YOU BRING

  • Experience in web development. You have professional experience with developing web applications and understand all the moving parts (Typescript/HTML/CSS/Rest/HTTP/Browser APIs). You have designed, built, and maintained projects or features that have been deployed to production. Bonus 1: you have Angular experience. Bonus 2: you have affinity for product design. No issues with working based on wire frames.
  • You enjoy working across the front- and backend. Our codebase uses Java and Spring, but if you're familiar with C# and .Net, you could still be a good fit with us. You feel comfortable making changes in a Docker file or writing a SQL statement. You welcome the opportunity to venture out of your comfort zone, helping in different areas when needed.
  • Passion about building quality products. You know how to write maintainable code. You care about technical debt. You have written enough unit and integration tests to have a taste of what a good test looks like. You understand the value and cost of abstraction, are versed in current architectural practices, and judiciously apply programming principles.
  • You are a good communicator. We have all our meetings remote first. You value writing and express yourself concisely. You may hold strong opinions, but you are not ideological. You communicate thoughtfully, always assume others speak in good faith, aim to understand opposing perspectives and compromise when needed.
  • You are curious and open minded. You want to learn, get challenged and grow personally and professionally in an ever evolving startup environment. You enjoy working in an English speaking environment.
