RemoteUtrecht, Utrecht, NetherlandsDevelopment team

Job description

We are a fast-growing international scale-up on a mission to have 1 million people take an RV trip at least once in their lives by 2025. To achieve this we need great software engineers like you at both Senior and Medior level.

About the job

Since we are a small team, you will get to work on our complete stack: Rails, JavaScript (Stimulus), CSS (Sass), Tests (Rspec on CircleCI), hosting (Heroku). You will build new features, optimise existing code, improve our test suite and developer tooling and anything else you can bring to the table.

What we offer

  • Freedom is what we stand for. Freedom to develop your own ideas, freedom to show initiative, to take responsibility and to develop yourself.
  • A responsible role in an ambitious team, at the forefront of our rapid growth.
  • Remote working with top-notch tooling.
  • A few camping-working trips with the team per year.
  • A Macbook.
  • A young and international team.
  • We give you a travel credit of € 250, so you can go on a campervan trip yourself, to experience the freedom.
  • We don't count holiday days. We believe in responsibility for your work, your private life and a healthy combination of both. We recommend taking a minimum of 25 days. But you are free to organise your work and free time as you see fit.
  • Plenty of opportunities for personal growth and development.
