Send your CV to our HR manager Pavla Trávníčková to email@example.com. She will guide you to our React assignment and tiny questionnaire. After that, you’ll have a nerdy talk with our CTO and if everything goes smoothly, you’ll discuss a job offer with our CEO.
What if I do not have all the necessary skills yet?
- This is a senior position so you have to have some experience in the field. But your personal characteristics and the ability to learn are more important for us than knowing specific frameworks.
Do I have time to educate myself?
- Of course! Constant learning is the most important part of our jobs and is always encouraged. You can learn with your colleagues during knowledge-sharing workshops or on your own by attending courses or talks. Most of them can be paid by us.
What does the typical development cycle look like?
- We run in weekly sprints. Along with your colleagues and project manager, you'll estimate the upcoming tasks. After that, you’ll get your tasks assigned to you in Active Collab. You’ll start coding in your branch/fork and once you’re done, you’ll create a MR for one of your colleagues. After a successful code review, your work gets merged, tested, and deployed first to the staging area and then, along with other features, deployed as another version of the application.
How will we communicate?
- For communication, we use Slack, Active Collab, and if necessary WhatsApp or Viber. We also have regular, usually not very serious company meetings on Google Meet.
What if I don’t have any tasks at a time? Will I get paid less?
- No, this is a full-time job. You will always have some term tasks like improving our code standard, refactoring, or writing articles. We’ll discuss what is your passion and how it can be used for our long-term goals.
Won’t I get lost often since the company is fully remote and I can’t ask for help in person?
- Don’t worry, your colleagues will help you set up your working environment and guide you through our development process. We try to keep our internal wiki with tutorials and guidelines updated. Also, you’ll get a “big buddy” assigned to you who will help you with any troubles in your work and if requested, in your personal life as well.
How to apply for this position?
Send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll talk to each other at a meeting. :-)
