JavaScript Job Details

Are you ready to roll your sleeves up and join our team in Berlin? You are a backend application developer with experience with JavaScript Frameworks.

You have an interest in DevOps, load testing, unit tests and automated testing and hopefully have experience with AWS and Docker. You might even have used React on the front end. If that sounds like you, then you've come to the right place!

  • Have Ops responsibility for applications and databases
  • (Potentially) some basic maintenance of the JS front-ends of some internal web apps
  • Use the right technology to get-the-job-done, and relish using technologies that you haven't tried before
  • Enjoy making quick prototypes and be equally happy to throw them away if the concept doesn't work
  • Use all the techniques available to you to ensure that your production code is of the highest quality
