We‘re looking for a junior developer to help us change the way people consume video online. We don’t pretend to know what exactly makes a great teammate until we meet you. But anyway, here’s our thinking to help you get a feel if it’s worth your time reaching out.
How we imagine you
You want to work in a team and deliver. You’re in it to win it.
You’re good, not shy about it, and know there’s still a lot to learn. You can look at that list of technologies below and check off many of them as familiar. The ones you haven’t worked with are no biggie; you learn fast.
You want to work with the best. New teammates are a source of learning and you don’t plan to ever stop honing your craft.
Jobs to be done
We’re developing a butter-smooth user experience on practically all the platforms out there: Android, iOS, Web, Smart TV’s, Set-top boxes and Oculus, just to name a few.
We’re using whatever works best for each of them. Currently the apps are written using Swift, React and React Native.
It all needs to be served by a scalable back-end and a command center for content curators. The current stack consists of AWS (Cloudfront, Elasticache, Route 53, S3), PostreSQL, Redis and Node.js (ES6, Sequelize, ExpressJS)
After you reach out
First we’ll invite you for a cup of coffee with one of the developers, so you’ll get to ask about the everyday work that we do. In this meeting you can showcase some of your favourite projects to us! Choose one that you like in particular and present it to us, and then we can discuss what you liked in the project and what you’d like to change. We’d also love to hear about what you value in a workplace, and how you’d like to develop yourself in the future.
Next, we’ll give you a chance to work with one of your possible future teammates. We’ll set up a pair programming exercise, where you and the teammate work on solving a task together for an hour. It’s all about communicating and problem solving in a team - we love to pair program at Neverthink to learn from one another.
After that, hopefully we’re both ready to decide whether to take on this journey together!
