  • HappyPorch (European timezones)
    2 days ago

    Passionate about web development? Looking for a flexible, remote role where you are working on an enthusiastic and committed team?  This is a brilliant opportunity to develop your technical skills within a forward-thinking and supportive team.

    Initial 6 months, full time with potential for permanent.

    Anywhere within 2 hours of the UK timezone.


    The Role

    You will be helping to care for a number of Umbraco websites, including maintenance & support, bug fixing and adding new features. You will also be involved, with the rest of the development team, in the planning and development of new Umbraco sites, redesigns and overhauls of existing sites.

    You will be working remotely as part of a small team of 10 spread across the UK, Europe and beyond. You will also be communicating with clients directly. This requires excellent written and verbal English communication skills and the ability to communicate professionally with both technical and non-technical people.

    You

    • enjoy solving problems and are constantly looking to learn and improve
    • are outstanding at communicating both verbally and in written English (and more than tech-speak!)
    • are detail oriented and meticulous about quality
    • understand how important good, disciplined process is; in software development as well as communication and project management

    The ideal person will bring the correct mindset, ability to learn and adapt along with as wide a range of technical experience as possible, we therefore encourage applications from the right candidates regardless of age, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, belief or race.

    The mix of remote working and the challenge of improving your technical skills while communicating directly with the client means that this role requires very strong English communication skills and a good level of self-confidence.  Thus we encourage applications from candidates with a range of experiences, including career changers and those returning to work.

    Also check out this video some of the team made to help you understand HappyPorch a little better.

     

    Technology

    We are more interested in your interest in web development & your ability to learn, solve problems and your professional approach to coding. However, you do need to have a good working knowledge in C#, ASP.NET MVC, HTML/CSS and Javascript. Experience of Umbraco (or other CMS)  is an advantage, although is not required.


    What’s in it for you?

    Impact

    You will bring your experience, ideas and energy to the role. As part of a small, fun team you will be much more than just another cog in the wheel. There is a huge opportunity to further develop your technical & other skills. 

    Purpose

    A key part of our purpose is to contribute in a positive way to the world around us. Thus we dedicate a portion of their “on the job” time working on ‘pro-bono’ projects that have societal value. This might include open source development, charity projects or training and assisting other organisations.   

    Transparency 

    We run on self management principles.  This does not mean a completely flat hierarchy, any group of humans will have leaders. It does mean that we all input into how the company is run and everyone is invited to get involved and take on the level of responsibility that suits each of us. It also means that leadership is much more fluid than in a traditional company hierarchy. 

    We provide a lot of support and coaching to help you thrive in this environment and thus to do great work. Although it can be challenging, it is incredibly rewarding to be part of. 

      

    Location & Hours

    This role is remote, much of the time you can work from anywhere – well almost – anywhere within 2 hours of the UK timezone. We are more interested in results than micromanaging which means we are very happy to talk about flexibility in your working hours. Some of our team enjoy a very structured day, others flex their work around family commitments.

    Twice each year we meet-up for about a week to work together. Recent locations have included Morocco, Madeira, Bulgaria and Scotland. As well as being really useful it is a lot of fun, so we do all we can to help everyone join where it is possible.

    About Us
    Help Scout is made by roughly 110 people in 80+ cities around the world, all with a passion for helping others. We come from diverse backgrounds and are united by an enthusiasm for great products and delightful customer experiences. Help Scout launched in 2011 and today we have more than 10,000 paying customers in 140+ countries.

    Why Help Scout?
    We're remote. It doesn’t matter if you’ve worked remotely before — we’ve been doing it for nearly a decade and are helping to write the playbook — we’re happy to show you the ropes. Most folks that get a taste of working in a "remote first" company have a hard time going back to the old way of doing things.

    We’re passionate about diversity and inclusion. The data is abundantly clear about diverse teams being more successful, and we're dedicated to setting the team up for success. Today our leadership team is 62% women, and that's just the start. Here’s our 2019 report. 

    We're committed to SMBs for the long term. Help Scout is focused entirely on serving small and midsize businesses, typically up to 500 employees, because those companies view customer service differently. It's not a cost to be optimized, it's their most effective marketing tool and a key differentiator from the competition. We built Help Scout for companies that truly value being customer-centric (like us) and want a product that shares their values.

    We're leaving the world better than we found it. Did you know Help Scout is a certified B Corporation, with a mission to give away at least 1% of our product through Help Scout for Good? Our company exists not just to help ourselves, but to invest in our team, our customers, our community, and our environment.

    Our commitment to you
    We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to building a company that embraces and celebrates diversity and inclusion. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We have read the studies and understand that diverse teams build better products, bring more perspective to the table, contribute to a company’s financial success and help foster a more inclusive environment for all employees, but the bottom line is that it's the right thing to do.
