What we offer

  • Work the hours that best fit your schedule.
  • Work from the comfort of your own home.
  • We engage the clients and win the projects so that you can focus on your passion: creating amazing code.
  • Start with an hourly rate $25 USD / hour and work your way up to 35 USD / hour. (Most of our projects are hourly based, some have fixed budget.)

Note: Our job ads are aimed on developers from Central Europe. Consider whether you apply if you don't have a reasonable time overlap with CET or live in an area with high living costs.

General skills

  • You are able to deliver projects on time and at a high-quality level
  • You have a passion for development and continuous self-education in your area of expertise
  • You have code examples showing all your relevant skills. Each code example should be a non-trivial example showing your best skills and knowledge

Bonus if you have:

  • Basic knowledge of Linux system administration and project deployment
  • Familiarity with AWS and/or Heroku 

Recruitment process

This is how our recruitment process works:

  • We will check your application and code examples to see if you would be a good fit to our team.
  • If you pass the initial screening, we will invite you to do our Ruby on Rails test project.
  • If you pass the test, we will invite you to a call or on-site interview focused on soft-skills.
  • If you pass the 1st interview, we will invite you to the 2nd interview focused on technical skills and knowledge.
