Imagine yourself working for a cool online company (+/- 20 great team members) creating new cutting edge products on the web. We share ideas and new programming techniques via Glip (similar to Slack) with constant communication and use Asana and sprints to plan our work. We are easy going but with a great work ethic and (most importantly) get shit done when the pressure is on.
Do you want to grow together and help us move towards our big ambitions? Get attractive bonuses based on your work results? We will, of course, respect your local holidays and you get to decide your own hours and when/if you were working.
Sounds good? Then keep reading!
These are the skills we are looking for:
Any of these skills make you rocket to the top of the list:
Your average day in KVSocial:
First, you’d log into Glip (team chat) and Teamrack (our intranet software), check all messages, and provide response where needed. After that, pull Git repo’s on the project(s) you are working on. To start programming, you’d open Asana, and check your tasks. If you have any questions about priority or any of the pending tasks, you would ask them on Glip. Then start working, and every task you finish do a Git commit. At the end of your day, you would give a short ‘twitter like’ update in teamrack on what you have done that day.
We work in weekly or bi-weekly sprints to protect our developers from constantly changing requirements. So when a sprint is planned you know what to do for the next week or 2 weeks and you get to plan your own time around that.
We look for dedication and professionalism while giving you full creative freedom. We all contribute immensely to the success of our company, and all employees are an integral part of our success. We want people who believe in our product as much as we do. In return, we give you the flexibility to work in your most motivating environment.
We love our multi-cultural company and the fact we have people from all over the world working on creating the best products to give our customers.
How to apply?
Please rate yourself from 0 to 10 (where 10 is super duper awesome, 0 is I have no idea, 1 is no experience) as to the following skills/platforms:
Advanced JS (closures, postmessage, callback, module patterns, cascading, inheritance):
Also be sure to mention any extra skill & experience you might have that you think are relevant. Bonus skills are highly appreciated!
Together with your message, please include the answer to the following question:
“An apple costs 40 cents; a banana costs 60 cents and a grapefruit costs 80 cents. How much does a pear cost?” And also tell me – how you came up with that?
Your typical work week would be between 30 – 40 hours.
We have a bonus and salary increase plan based on your responsibility in individual projects and the success of those projects. They are both also based on the results of the company – KVSocial’s success is your success as well!
We love ambition so if you want to improve your skills we offer you the room to do so and grow in the company.
