We’re searching for a Javascript developer to join our team. We are growing our frontend team to build the next generation of HR delivery services.
Our head office is in Paris, but we are mostly a remote team, and we accept candidates located in France, Germany and the UK.

Your Mission

As a Javascript developer, your role is to give life to this platform backed by our design guidelines and our APIs. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Improving existing applications and building new ones
  • Sharing your knowledge and efforts across projects to build a strong and consistent development platform
  • Learning and teaching with weekly dedicated learning sessions
  • Be a decent human being (that comes first, actually)

Mentoring is also a first-class element at PeopleDoc: depending on the topic and your proficiency, you will be offered to mentor or be mentored.

Skills

Javascript: the more the better

We have grown to become big fans of the Javascript framework Ember.js. If you don’t know it, we’ll teach you. If you do know it, come share your experience with us. Besides Ember, you must at least be curious about the evolution of plain “vanilla” Javascript.

HTML & CSS: decent knowledge

The JS tribe and our UI designers collaborate to improve our UI framework every day. You will need some proficiency in HTML and CSS to contribute.

Language

As a member of an international team in an international company, you are required to be able to express yourself in both written and spoken English.

Experience

This is a Javascript position, the more you know, the better. We are using Ember.js as a main framework, but we’re not expecting you to know it. A strong desire to learn is as welcome as an expertise.

Tooling & Methodology

We are big fans of pair-programming, we dedicate a lot of time to the onboarding of our newest members. Testing is an integral part of our practices and so is peer reviews.

We strive to build a welcoming and inclusive work environment where building exceptional products comes along with learning continuously and sharing knowledge with the rest of your team and company. Among us, you will be : 

  • Working within a friendly, fast-growing, inclusive, progressive company
  • Collaborating with a team of talented designers and developers
  • Learning not only how to code but how to build a product
  • Encouraged to share your knowledge and learn new skills

We are also avid learners: during our weekly learning sessions, we exchange on various topics to learn together. We have a very large budget for our library, and we contribute back to the open source projects we love and use. Plus, there’s a conference budget for you to spend.

  • Taskade is building real-time collaboration for distributed teams, starting with tasks. We are a team of startup veterans obsessed about improving team collaboration, workflow, and productivity. At Taskade, you’ll have the chance to work with a small, closely knit team and make a big impact on our product, business, and engineering efforts.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    • We are looking for skilled front-end engineers with a deep understanding of user interface and design. We’re a small team, and in order for us to thrive we need members who have the drive and ability to work on a wide array of products.

    • From working on our landing pages, templates showcase, to the user on-boaridng experience, you’ll get the chance to experience a wide variety of development scenarios.

    We value “T-shaped” people. That is, people who are both generalists (highly skilled at a broad set of valuable things—the top of the T) and also experts (among the best in their field within a narrow discipline—the vertical leg of the T). An expert who is too narrow has difficulty collaborating. A generalist who doesn’t go deep enough in a single area ends up on the margins, not really contributing as an individual.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • Experience with JavaScript

    • Experience with React, React Native and Redux

    • Deep understanding of cloud architecture and application deployment.

    • Be deeply interested in the long-term view. Yes, we need to deliver value rapidly, but our problem domain will grow dramatically over time. Figure out where we need to be in a year and identify how we'll get there incrementally, while helping us manage and constrain technical debt and other forms of unnecessary complications which will in the long run serve us poorly.

    • To be a quick learner. We’re looking for software engineers who thrive on learning new technologies. As a startup, and we have a lot of problem domains that need to be worked on, and you should have the ability and drive to adapt accordingly.

    • Versatility. You understand how all the pieces fit together (front-end, database, network layer, etc.) and how they impact the performance of your application.

    • Professional experience in engineering SaaS products

    • Experience leading projects with teams

    • An ownership mindset: you should look not only at what you’re asked to do, but ask why you’re doing it and how it impacts on the rest of the product, our customers, and whether it makes sense. We expect you to be responsible for your work and to resolve any bugs you might ship

No ego is the check system to balance no BS and keep it kind. No ad-hominem attacks.

    • 1% better every day: Continuous improvement is what motivates us. We design our product, our organization and our careers to be continually improving. Mistakes are only bad if they are repeated. Experiments are only wasted if they are not learned from.

    At Rainforest QA we believe that diverse teams improve our business. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
