    • Has an extremely high bar for quality.

    • Is thorough and detail-oriented.

    • Gains deep satisfaction from helping to make products better.

    • Has experience of working in a small business or startup environment.

    • Preferably has experience collaborating with diverse, geographically-dispersed teams.

    Core Responsibilities:
    • Own backend development and contribute to other areas of the product. 

    • Learn, evolve and improve an existing application/system architecture.

    • Review code from other engineers and provide feedback.

    • Help secure the environment.

    • Develop Shorthand app server-side and API functionality to help improve the customer experience. 

    • Contribute to the technical direction of the Shorthand tool.

    • Report bugs.

    • Communicate with the customer support team and customers to suggest solutions to issues.

    • Assist in the creation of product documentation when required.

    • A minimum 10 years of experience in Software Engineering roles.

    • A minimum 3 years of experience in web application development.

    • Thorough knowledge of NodeJS and the web.

    • Experience with AWS.

    • A university qualification in computer science or a closely related field, or equivalent career experience required.

    Personality Attributes: 
    • You are a proactive self-starter, who does not need to be told what to do and will be resourceful in order to find solutions to any challenge.

    • You thrive in a fast-paced and demanding environment, and possess a high level of intellectual curiosity.

    • You are collaborative.

    • You find fulfillment in the job itself, and happiness in a job well done.

    Your responsibility will be building and maintaining Frontastic's API Integrations. Frontastic is unique in connecting multiple headless systems to a single frontend and making this interaction configurable by Frontend Managers.

    • An understanding of the requirements of working in software development (quality assurance, testing, monitoring)

    • You reside and work in Europe

    • The same goes for us as a company, we continuously refactor our rules and guidelines. Overall, we have a very transparent, helpful, warm, familiar employee culture.

    • We're a remote-first company with regular meetings in-person. We use tools like email, Hangouts and Slack to stay in touch during our daily work.
