  •, a fast-growing browser games platform, is looking for a remote Full-stack Typescript Software Engineer. 

    You will be the main full-stack developer working on a complex responsive server-side rendered React application. The application has built-in internationalisation and high performance requirements. It is made with Typescript, Node.js, Next.js, and GraphQL. You will be working with our tech lead and front-end engineer on code used by up to 1 million people every day. 

    In a typical day you might:

    • Improve our performance by running testing tools, experimenting, and diving into browser rendering specifics.

    • Build a complete new feature based on a 1 page specification (all the way from the database migration to the react component).

    • Propose and implement improvements to our build system and testing framework.

    Key outcomes for the role:

    • Within 2 weeks you pick up and close your first issues independently.

    • Within 1 month, you can fully understand and give valuable feedback on complex Pull Requests.

    • Within 2 months, you achieve a development speed similar to the rest of our team.

    • Within 3 months, you execute an investigation task and have made a 1 page proposal on how to solve a complex technical problem.

    • Within 4 months you fully understand the codebase of the main project that you will be working on (a server-sider rendered Typescript React app with built-in internationalisation, high performance requirements, a GraphQL + REST backend, Express.js server, and AWS infrastructure specified with Terraform). 

    • Within 6 months, you fully understand the codebase of a secondary project.

    • Within 12 months, you re-organize and improve critical pieces of code.

    What we offer:

    • 5 talented, skilled, and motivated colleagues

    • A modern tech stack: Node.js, React, TypeScript, GraphQL. Terraform infrastructure on AWS.

    • A lot of responsibility and freedom. We hire only experts and trust them to deliver excellent results.

    • Flexible working hours and location. The results are what count!

    • Visits to Leuven: you will visit our office in Leuven (the world’s capital of beer) a few times per year. We pay for flights and accommodation so you can have fun with the team.

    • The opportunity to play games and claim it's work.


    Reach out if:

    • You are intelligent, efficient, and organized. You have an attention to detail.

    • You like open, efficient, and to-the-point communication and you have experience in working remotely.

    • You have a strong understanding of a wide range of technical topics (ranging from databases and UNIX to software engineering patterns and browser rendering).

    • You have experience with server-side rendered React applications and with Typescript.

    • You like diving into new things, open-source libraries, browser APIs, and more.

  • We are looking for an exceptional engineer to join our team to lead development on our front-end, which is an SPA built using Typescript + React + Blueprint.js.

    Ideally, you should have over a year's experience using Typescript, in addition a modern framework such as React/Angular/Vue.js, and be excited by the prospect of building web apps that present complex ideas to users in a simple and intuitive manner. This is an ambitious project which includes interesting technical challenges, such as working with large multi-million row datasets in the browser, and parsing arrow files in the browser.

    This will primarily involve work on the frontend, but -- depending on your experience -- this could also could include some backend Python/Django work including interfacing and developing our REST endpoints to make them compatible with front-end requirements.

    You should like the idea of releasing to real customers regularly, and prioritise getting a great product into users’ hands for feedback and iteration. You will be working with a talented team of domain experts, data scientists, and backend engineers, and will have extensive scope to build and architect the front-end yourself, and grow the team in the future.

    Please note, the role is fully remote - we subscribe to the GitLab global salary calculator - . However we're looking for candidates located within Europe only at the moment.
