Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: North or South America

Category: Software Dev


 At Bevy Labs we have deep experience building community from the ground up. We are building the best products to help companies manage and scale their user groups and event communities all over the world. We are a distributed company and strive to be as diverse as the people using our products.

Bevy Labs Engineering

On the engineering team you are at the heart of the action, contributing to products that are actively used by world-class communities to create connections and experiences for their people.

We care about solving challenging problems to build products that make a real difference in the lives of our customers and their users. We also care about the craft of software engineering and how we can always become better at what we do, individually as well as collectively.

This means continuous integration, lots of automated test coverage, thorough reviews, good thinking and lots of experiments to discover new ways of improvement.

We are still small and nimble, but we are excited to grow.

This position

All members of the engineering team are expected to participate broadly in development activities, including design discussions and code reviews. This position has a primary focus on analytics. Our goal in this area is to build effective solutions to enable our clients to answer important questions about their communities.

You

You will fit in well with us, if you:

  • Reside in North or South America. Yes, we are a distributed company, but since we are still small, we like to minimize the time zone spread within the team.

  • Are an excellent communicator. In our small team, English is the official language. You need to be able to articulate complex ideas efficiently and effectively. When people do not share an office, it is essential to pay extra attention to communication.

  • Have a solid technical background. You should have at least five years of professional software development experience and be able to point to a track record of caring about software engineering practices and increasingly challenging problems solved.

  • Feel at home with Python/pandas, JavaScript/React.js and the shell command line.

  • Can point to a track record of interesting data science/analytics projects that you can discuss, some of which ideally available in open source repositories for discussion.

  • Like to learn and strive to do so often. As a company we improve to the extent that our team does. It starts with each individual. Humility and an open mind help a lot.

  • Ideally know what it is like to work in distributed development teams, or better yet, thrive in them. It probably means you already know you don’t need a structured office environment with a manager who checks in on you once a day. Likewise, you know that you will do best from your home office.

  • Can teach us about things like distributed web application architectures, implementing large payment systems, secure coding practices, implementing security controls in software architectures or localizing web applications for non-American audiences.

We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our users and the communities we serve.

Principals only please.

  • On being a Team Happiness Engineer at balena

    At balena, we spend a lot of time working to ensure that our team is cared for. As our team grows, we want to make sure that this is the case, which means working on interesting and rewarding challenges!

    One of our priorities in terms of team happiness is to optimise team scheduling. We’re a remote-first company distributed across many continents, and as a result, scheduling meetings and ensuring we always have engineers available to support our users is a difficult challenge.

    We believe it’s important to ensure that every member of the team is able to choose their working hours and maintain a healthy work-life balance, which means taking these parameters into account when scheduling.

    As you may have read on our blog, we achieve this through the use of advanced constraint programming algorithms. This turns a task which would be tedious and inefficient to do by hand into a rewarding mathematical challenge which simultaneously results in a better and more flexible outcome for our team.

    Algorithmic scheduling is of course just one example of pain reduction for the team. We have more ideas on how tools like constraint solvers can be applied to boost team happiness and success, for example the optimisation of team activities and professional development.

    We are looking for a full stack “team happiness” engineer to join us in this venture by innovating and implementing engineering solutions to reduce discomfort and friction across our team. We can’t wait to see what you can come up with!

    Requirements

    • Extremely good problem-solving abilities. You know how to split a complex problem into incremental pieces.
    • The software engineering skills to implement these solutions programmatically.
    • The ability to execute and complete software projects.
    • Good understanding of software engineering practices and how to apply them (e.g. version control, tests, descriptive commit messages).
    • Self-motivation to find the best possible outcome from a myriad of options.
    • Desire to make yourself and others more effective; you’d be bothered by an inefficient process.
    • Excellent written communication skills, and fluency in English.
    • The ability to work remotely, with a remote team around the world.
    • The candour to question the status quo.

    Nice to have:

    • Experience with Linux, TypeScript, JavaScript frameworks, Python, HTML/CSS and databases
    • Experience with Google Sheets, Google Apps Script, and managing projects on the Google Cloud Platform.
    • A good understanding of git and GitHub.
    • An interest in mathematical modelling, optimisation and constraint solvers.
    • A sample of your work (URL or attached sample).
    • Experience in a full stack developer role.
    • Having worked remotely before.

    About working at balena

    We come from 15+ countries, and we embrace a remote culture with flexible hours. To us, this means being highly productive while still maintaining a healthy work-life balance. You need to be able to work remotely, and have a dependable internet access available so you can join video calls.

    We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We value knowledge and initiative more than educational and personal backgrounds, age, or location. We maintain a work environment in which team members are treated with respect at all times and in which thoughts and ideas can be shared openly.

    We communicate proposals, discuss with others in the team and accept feedback if it makes the result better. We value the ability to learn, which is more important to us than knowledge of specific technologies. We know that learning fast means being outside our comfort zone, which is OK — we'd rather learn than let our assumptions get in our way.

    Benefits

    • Work with an extremely talented, diverse team
    • Equipment of your choice
    • Remote-friendly
    • Flexible working hours
    • Generous vacation policy
    • Annual company gathering in an international location
    • We send you hardware for side projects!
