About us

Fotoquirk Ltd, based in Durham, creates innovative visualisation and augmented reality software for mobile devices and the web. We are a small, dynamic and international team aiming to strike the right balance between graphically advanced products and practical solutions which solve actual business problems.

We provide visualisation tools for various leading window decorating businesses in the UK, and are currently expanding internationally.

Job description

We are looking for an enthusiastic software developer to help build the Android version of our next generation visualisation software, initially on project basis but possibly extending to a permanent contract. The Android version will be a custom-built layer on top of our existing multiplatform C++ visualisation core.

This is a remote working job, but you should be prepared to interact on a daily basis with our team in Durham, and most importantly, be responsive. We offer very competitive hourly rates, depending on qualifications.

Requirements

Suitable candidates do not need any formal qualification, and self-taught candidates are explicitly invited to apply, but you should at least have:

  • experience with Android development using the command-line toolset,

  • experience with the Android NDK,

  • experience with Java as well as C++,

  • experience building dynamical user interfaces in code,

  • an interest in 3D graphics.

  • Ability to demonstrate some of the above with e.g. contributions to an open source project is a plus. We are in particular looking for people with a strong desire to learn new technologies 'on the job'.

    We're a multidisciplinary, fully remote team that’s passionate about creating products, like Todoist and Twist, that improve people’s lives. We thrive on innovating new solutions to old productivity challenges and we seek to rethink how productivity tools are made.

    When you become a Doister, you’re not only joining a global, remote-first company, but a team of 60+ people who value:

    > Feeling empowered to achieve their ambitions

    > Inclusivity, open-mindedness, and diversity

    > The wellbeing of their teammates and the people around them

    > Making long-term, high-impact decisions, even if they’re harder

    > We invite you to visit our blog to learn more about us, our values, and how we work.

    Your role:

    As a Front-end Developer, you’ll be joining a small team of developers to work on the web apps of our core products; Todoist and Twist. Both apps are highly interactive and complex, allowing you to leverage modern tools such as React and Redux, to deliver a unique experience to over a million of our active users around the world.


    Like every member of the team, you’ll own the projects from day one and help the team make core architectural decisions. Within this role you’ll also have the opportunity to collaborate in cross-functional teams to drive exciting initiatives like @mentions for Twist or the new dark mode for Todoist. Questioning the status quo, improving processes, sharing, writing and testing code will be on your daily agenda. 


    About you:

    You are a skilled JavaScript developer with a deep understanding of the latest Internet technologies, a keen engineering intuition, and outstanding communication skills. Additionally, to thrive as a front-end developer at Doist you should have:

    > Experience building complex interactive web applications.

    > Solid knowledge of modern JavaScript and React (Bonus: Redux)

    > Experience in writing automated unit, integration or end-to-end tests.

    > The ability to use and customize tools (e.g. Webpack, Gulp) to streamline our development and build processes.

    > Proven ability to work autonomously and stay self-motivated. Previous experience working in remote team is a bonus.

    > Fluency in written and spoken English.

    Benefits

    We’re bootstrapped, profitable, and committed to building a sustainable company that will grow for decades to come. We’ve built a benefits package that invests in our employee’s long-term personal and professional growth and well-being. Here’s a sample of what that includes:

    > Work-Life balance. That means 8 hours of work, 5 days each week (for a total of 40 hours) because the time you spend outside of work is just as important as the time you spend working.

    > Flexible schedule and location. This is a fully remote position, so you can work from wherever you please and on a schedule that works best for you. All you need is a computer and access to a stable internet connection (which we sponsor!).

    > Generous paid vacation. 40 days of paid time off to use however you like (vacation, national holidays, etc.).

    > Paid parental leave. 18 weeks of paid maternity leave and 5 weeks of paid paternity/adoption leave.

    > Education stipend. You’ll have a monthly budget to buy books, courses, and other resources you need to continue learning and developing.

    > Competitive compensation.

    And much more!

    4) We believe only three things matter as we build out our business: building a great product, delivering awesome customer service and a killer instinct for communicating what we do to the market.
