  • Consistently ship small features and improvements
  • Help maintain code quality, organization and automation
  • Writing and updating technical documentation
  • Improve, extend and refactor existing components in line with the best practices
  • Code Reviews

 Your first month

  • Gain in-depth knowledge of our product and understand our development cycle by:
  • Reviewing our existing codebase and refactoring sub-standard code
  • Investigating and fixing bugs
  • Offer your suggestions on how we can improve the development process, product and codebase
  • Build and deploy at least one new feature

Compensation and Perks:

  • You can work from anywhere and tailor your own work hours
  • Salary range (depending on skills): $50.000 USD - $90.000 USD
  • Coworking allowance
  • Attending company retreats (when it’s safe to travel again)
  • Three weeks paid vacation + all local statutory holidays (paid)
  • Joining the team at industry events and design conferences

About us

Remote-first: We are a remote-first company without an in person office. We trust our employees to work flexibility and autonomously to efficiently meet business goals.

Close team: Although we work remotely, our team is close knit and colleagues are always there to help one another.

Customer feedback: Our customers are small business owners and we are privileged to work closely with them to continue to improve our product.

Bootstrapped: We have never raised external capital. We have no distractions from past or future investors. We're entirely focused helping our customers and we're taking our time to grow sustainably.

We’re a small team and we’re passionate about being a great company to work with and work for.
