MORE ABOUT US

We’re currently a team of 10 people -- you will be #11.



We are profitable and self-funded (no VCs or investors). We did this because we want to do what’s best for our team and customers (not investors).



We have sane working hours; we don’t work weekends, take ample time off, and work ~8 hours a day.



ABOUT YOU



You enjoy writing beautiful code. You care not just about whether the code works, but you think deeply about how well it performs, and how it will be understood by future developers.



You like shipping things. Whether it is bug fixes or features, you realize that every line of code is an opportunity to make a user’s experience better.



You ship often. You realize that the most efficient way to build a robust large application is by building it in smaller chunks and iterating upon user feedback.



You like getting feedback. Whether it is talking to real users or adding custom application metrics, you believe that getting real user data is a smart way to make decisions.



You are organized and autonomous. You don’t need someone to keep tabs on you all the time. You are able to take a goal, break it up into small tasks, and self-organize them in the best sequence to get the tasks achieved.



You are an excellent communicator. You try to make the best use of the tools available to use. You commit your code in small chunks and commit often.



OUR ENGINEERING TEAM RIGHT NOW



We are currently 6 developers. Our roles are divided based on the projects we work on.



Some of us are full stack and tend to jump between projects whereas some of us specialize in certain parts of the stack. Our stack currently looks like:


Backend: Java 8 (REST API)

Cloud: A blend of AWS and Google Cloud

Database: PostgreSQL

Frontend: ES6, TypeScript, React, and Redux

Internal: GitLab for CI/CD and issue tracking


WHAT YOU WILL DO



You will be working on our backend which is a REST API written using modern Java practices and frameworks.



This is a high impact role. We’re looking for someone to take real ownership of one or two core features within the first year. You'll own some extremely important portions of our application that serve thousands of users.



We prioritize our internal projects based on what features our customers are requesting the most. Some things that you will work on include:


Real-time data discovery – enhance and extend our real-time data discovery engine

Performance – we’d like every API call to complete within 500ms

Architecture – all core functionality should be designed in a way that it can be consumed as a standalone library

DevOps – deploy internal applications in a scalable and fault-tolerant manner

APIs – improve the depth of our integrations with 3rd party services, such as Salesforce


MUST HAVES


3+ years programming experience and 2+ years Java experience

You know how to use Java in a modern way without enterprise bloat

Excellent written and verbal communication skills

We don’t require a degree but you should have demonstrated the ability to learn new things quickly (either self-learned, from a bootcamp, or from school)


BONUS NICE-TO-HAVES


Worked at a startup or a small company before

Experience with modern DevOps practices with AWS, GCP, Docker, and such

A knack for taking a metrics-driven approach using Grafana or similar

Experience with GitLab, Google Drive API, or Salesforce.com


COMPENSATION AND PERKS


Salary: $70,000 - $90,000/year Canadian Dollars

Work remotely or from our office in Kitchener-Waterloo, or a blend of both

Four weeks paid time off

Travel spending allowance (money to spend during your vacation)

Catered lunches every day and snacks at the office

Laptop of your choice

  • At Doist, our mission is to inspire the workplace of the future by creating simple yet powerful productivity tools that promote a more fulfilling way to work and live.

    We're a multidisciplinary, fully remote team that’s passionate about creating products, like Todoist and Twist, that improve people’s lives. We thrive on innovating new solutions to old productivity challenges and we seek to rethink how productivity tools are made.

    When you become a Doister, you’re not only joining a global, remote-first company, but a team of 70+ people who value:

    • Independence. Others can trust that you’ll deliver on time and your teammates don’t need to worry about you keeping your word.

    • Mastery. You love what you do and care deeply about the quality of your work, down to the smallest details. You’re continuously learning and pushing yourself to the limits of your ability. You're never satisfied with the status-quo.

    • Communication. Your communication is clear, concise, and engaging whether you're explaining a complex idea or providing feedback to a teammate.

    • Balance. You're mindful about cultivating a healthy work-life balance. You care about the well-being of yourself, your team and the people around you.

    • Impact. You're able to take a bird's eye view to pinpoint and then solve issues that have a high impact on our customers, our team, and our company. You're committed to the health and success of both your teammates and Doist as a company.

    We invite you to visit our blog to learn more about us, our values, and how we work.

    The Frontend team at Doist is looking for a new developer to join their ranks to build the best possible user experience for millions of user across multiple products.

    How we work:

    The Frontend team is responsible for all code that runs in a browser. Be it the web apps of Twist and Todoist, browser extensions, electron apps or our landing pages.

    Our main product work happens inside cross-disciplinary teams, that we call squads. You can read more about this in our blog. We have a rotating Hero role whose main responsibility is to tackle support issues, fix bugs and work on smaller improvements. On top of that everybody on the team gets a day per week to spend on Housekeeping; during this time we pay back technical debt, fix bugs and in general improve the health of our code base.

    We believe in picking the most effective tools to do our best work. At the moment this means most of our communication happens asynchronously in Twist. Code and bugs are managed and reviewed in GitHub. Team meetings are done in Zoom.

    We don't have a lot of scheduled meetings. Once a week the team meets to discuss the previous week and plan the next one. Once a month the whole team comes together for a retrospective to share candid feedback and take a look at the coming month.

    Day-to-day work:

    What your work will look like on a day-to-day basis:

    • Implement features. From proposal, through specification and implementation, to maintenance. You're encouraged and expected to propose things that you think can be a good addition to the product.

    • Provide feedback. When planning a feature you're expected to provide feedback on expected challenges and unknowns as early as possible.

    • Improve the code quality. With time, our code accumulated some technical debt, which we pay off. Often we do it while we make features, but we also dedicate time to housekeeping each week.

    • Be a responsible & exemplary team member. We do code reviews, refactor code, learn new things and share our knowledge. You might also be appointed mentor of a new comer

    • Lead a squad. From time to time you might be a squad leader which bears the responsibility for the success of the project. In practical terms, you plan the squad work and orchestrate its execution. You balance this activity with hands-on work within the same squad.

    • Be a Hero. During this time you'll be working closely with the support team to triage and fix bugs from users. Also, you help speed up code reviews and support other teams in their projects.
