Hello from Vestberry! We are looking for experienced developers to fulfill our ambitious, yet realistic plans who enjoy writing code that's reusable, testable, and easy to scale. You can help us create and maintain the backend and database models, improving our system architecture and API programming with our CTO and four other backend developers.
More details about the role:
We want to keep with current technologies wherever we see it could be beneficial to our product in the long run. Our code is not supposed to make you reconsider your career choices. We are ready to hear your ideas regarding our API, database, libraries or general approach to code structure and backend development. Our stack and workflow is a matter of team discussion.
Our backend works in Node js and GraphQL. The rest of our stack includes React, TypeScript, Apollo, and Postgres+Sequelize. The app runs in AWS and we are working on dockerization as we speak.
We are a responsible bunch with a lot of freedom. It's up to you how you manage your time if you get the shit done :) (but we'd like you to join our daily morning standup at 9:30). We are looking for people with strong ownership that will bring their expertise, opinion, and suggestions so that we continuously move forward.
We think you get it from the job description, but just to be sure. We'll be looking for:
experience with web app backend development
independence, good analytical thinking, and attention to detail
solid overview of web technologies, so that you help us push our stack forward
What we offer:
We believe Vestberry is an opportunity to work on a successful local project in the fintech sector with clients worldwide. It's still “just work,” and we try not to take ourselves too seriously, but we place importance on creating an environment where we can enjoy ourselves most of the time.
Vestberry isn't our first rodeo. While our average age is 30, we've already been through stuff, know where our boundaries are and have a culture where it's OK to admit we don't know something. That's why we love people who know more than us and frequently engage them as consultants or hire them full-time. Also, we have an atmosphere of mutual trust and growth. We share “typically hidden” details during our all-hands, answer all questions, and often have team-generated sessions where we learn from each other.
Vacation days & sick days: Take the time you need to recharge and come back full of new ideas and energy. Everyone is guaranteed a minimum of 20 - 25 vacation days.
Flexible hours & work from home: We let you structure your work schedule around your needs and it is up to you where you work. We welcome you to join us in the office from time to time.
MultiSport card: Everyone gets a fully paid MultiSport card to enjoy various sports and wellness facilities.
Quality time with the founders: Get 1on1 time with a founder to talk about anything. Share your ideas, ask for advice or just bond. Book one of the "Talk to me about anything” slots in their calendar.
Company offsites: Twice per year, we get away from the office for a few days, reflect, and have meaningful discussions about strategy, and the future of the organization.
Team breakfast: Twice a month, we take a long morning and catch up with colleagues from other teams on both work & fun topics over a delicious breakfast.
Great office location: We’ve got a private office within Campus Cowork in Bratislava's city center, overlooking the Presidential Palace (say hello to Madam President). There is a rooftop terrace on the 7th floor as well.
Pet-friendly colleagues: Most of our colleagues have a dog or other pets. We even have a #cutenessoverload channel on Slack where you share your cute pet moments. Anyhow, your furry friend is welcome to join you at the office.
Plants all around: Forget about the concrete jungle and unwelcoming office buildings. In the Vestberry office, there are more plants than people. Welcome to our jungle.
On-site coffee shop: Need a coffee break? Campus Cowork has an on-site coffee shop with great coffee and various snacks. Order a cup of coffee and head to the 7th-floor rooftop terrace to enjoy it.
