Job type: Contract

Hiring from: US only

Company Description

As a digitally-focused management consultancy, we do more than strategy. From strategy and design to architecture and development, we deploy senior, cross-functional teams to work hip-to-hip in the trenches with client teams. 

Founded in 2003, Intevity (previously Twin Technologies) is a full service, digitally-focused management consultancy based in Boston, MA with remote offices and employees throughout the eastern and central US (Baltimore, Chicago, D.C., New York). Intevity focuses on both Commercial and Public Sector clients, with deep expertise in retail, software, and government. Intevity has key vendor partnerships with Adobe, AWS, and Salesforce. 

We work on all phases of projects, from early discovery and design to strategy to execution. We are known for our vulnerability-based culture, high levels of craftsmanship, innovation, and trust; being able to truly connect with the needs and spot the real reasons why an organization is being held back from achieving their goals. 

We specialize in digital transformation in retail, software, and government. We align audiences, optimize processes and build custom, cutting-edge experiences on leading platforms—all while helping businesses increase velocity while reducing organizational risk. 

As an agile company, Intevity is committed to continually growing and evolving with the market to provide an environment where creativity, leadership, mentoring, planning, and resources are in place to achieve our shared goals.

Job Description

The Full-stack Developer will serve as part of a development team supporting both established projects and creating from the ground up. The ideal candidate is an experienced leader and team player who is adept at both frontend and backend web development. They are passionate about technology and committed to lifelong learning, possessing the ability to apply their technical knowledge, skills and experience to solve complex/real-world problems.

Qualifications

• 1+ years software engineering experience

• Must have experience designing complex software solutions

• Exposure to all aspects of modern web application architectures, visual design, and mobile web development

• Versatility developing with multiple front-end and back-end technologies (Example: ES.Next, TypeScript, Go, React, GraphQL, SCSS/LESS, Python/Bash scripting)

• Experience with a variety of data systems such as SQL, NoSQL, Stream Processing and Distributed Key-Value Stores

• Familiar with REST API schema formats, such as: OpenAPI/Swagger, GraphQL and ProtoBuf

• Experience with running and defining Docker containers

• Familiar with Kubernetes resource APIs and related CLI tools

• Comfortable using and configuring software on Linux based operating systems

• BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience

• Has experience working from home on distributed teams in a remote model

• Willingness and ability to travel to our client sites when necessary (rare)

• Contract position to start which could lead to a full-time role

Expectations: 

Being remote allows our employees to live where they want to.  It means being able to have the lifestyle that you choose. Working remotely is not for everyone but it allows us to spend less time commuting and more time on the things that really matter.  We believe this is essential to supporting a workforce that can achieve a healthy work-life balance. 

What does this mean for you?  You get to work from where you need or want to work. Each team member is provided the tools, infrastructure, and support to create a productive, professional work from home office environment. We observe and operate standard East Coast working hours to support the majority of our clients and our teammates. We also provide some flexibility for daily schedules to accommodate one’s personal obligations to home and family life.

We recognize that working remotely isn’t always easy; the remote work model encourages independent thinking but requires increased professional accountability and self-discipline.  We are an outcome-focused team and work to get the job done. We champion a culture of transparency and openness.  

While travel is part of the job requirement to service clients and team build, we ensure it is asked for and planned as thoughtfully as possible.  Travel amounts do vary by engagement, but in this role/project, a full-stack developer can expect the travel to be very light.  MAYBE once per quarter, if that.

    Central Copenhagen, Denmark, or remote with some travel to Copenhagen

    Hafnium Labs, a startup working to create a brighter future by making chemical R&D faster and smarter, just created a seat at the table for a remarkable lead developer.

    A bit about us

    3 minute intro from our pitch at Web Summit 2018: https://youtu.be/B75nez6gvvU?t=28220

    Advances in chemistry change the world: From the drugs that save our lives, to the crops and energy solutions that will save our tomorrow. The world spends $350 billion annually on chemical R&D and new process plants to create a brighter future.

    But progress is limited by slow and expensive trial-and-error experimentation and legacy enterprise software, incapable of incorporating state-of-the-art research and compute power.

    We want to change that. Using technologies such as quantum chemistry and probabilistic machine learning, we have developed a set of breakthrough digital tools that help energy, chemicals and pharma companies develop greener products and more sustainable processes.

    To succeed, we are a team of exceptional scientists with strong software development skills and industry experts that know our customers’ needs. But building the world’s most powerful platform for predicting chemistry is only half the equation.

    Intuitive interfaces, robust products, and best practice test and release cycles are equally important. To create tools that our customers will love. And create a brighter future.

    That’s why we want to offer you the chance to join us in creating something truly groundbreaking

    You will join our leadership team, owning the development of our tools from an interface and software engineering perspective, playing a key role in bringing our game-changing technology to market.

    Your charter has a number of components:

    • Own our interface design

    • Sign off on fully-featured products for shipping to multi-billion corporate customers, together with our CTO

    • Understand best practices for security and data protection and make necessary adjustments to accommodate the needs of our customers

    • Help shape and future-proof our tech stack, especially our front-end technologies

    • Lead by example to implement a culture of best practice QA and testing

    • Take active role in making high-level technical and architectural design decisions

    • Work closely with the team to implement new features and designs

    • Ensure integrity and organization of our code and database

    We do not have a checklist of requirements that you need to fulfill. But you are expected to have a strong track record in software engineering and DevOps. Our tech stack includes databases (SQL), scripting and software development (C++, C#, Python, Julia), cloud computing (customer-relevant platforms / Big 4), as well as front-end (Typescript, React.js, Electron, Jupyter Notebooks for prototyping).

    What we do require, is that you are passionately curious, learn fast, proactively take ownership, and that you love people and can see yourself as a leader. Whether you have previously led a development or desire the opportunity to take that step, we’d love to hear from you.

    We expect you to be passionate about implementing a culture of high-quality and adaptable software and systems development using code reviews and testing.

    This includes having a deep understanding of how to navigate the immediate benefit of a feature and the technical debt incurred by its implementation. We care deeply about our customers: Balancing how we serve them fast while maintaining the integrity and agility of our software is key to the success of our company and a responsibility you should feel comfortable with.

    We have no expectations on scientific knowledge – but we do expect you to be passionate about learning more. You will work with our scientists and learn how we apply cutting-edge science and technologies to digitalize process and product design in pharma, energy and chemicals.

    We offer a dynamic and flexible work environment and competitive salary.

    Our immediate plan is to hire one additional dedicated software developer to help deliver on the charter above. We would expect you to contribute to defining the profile of that position.

    Who you will be teaming up with

    Hafnium Labs was founded in 2016 but our passion for developing digital tools to advance chemical research goes back 15 years, where our two co-founders started their chemical engineering studies together. Since then, Bjørn combined his software developer background with award-winning academic performance, to develop the technology we are now bringing to market. Jon spent 6 years with BCG helping corporates reach their top strategic goals – most recently as a manager in their AI-division.

    You will be working in an international 10-person team of mostly PhDs in chemistry and physics on a mission to bring cutting-edge digital tools to industrial use. We are located in Copenhagen (Latin: Hafnia), from where the element Hafnium has its name.

    Our DNA is passionately curious. We welcome all people and backgrounds, as long as they are driven by always wanting to learn more, build new solutions and improve what exists. This allows us to help our customers solve some of the hardest problems in the world – and create a brighter future.

    Let’s talk!

    Contact us at [email protected] if this invitation has caught your attention and you want to learn more. You are welcome to include your resume and short cover letter explaining why you feel you would be a strong fit, but we are also happy to start the conversation without this.
