The tools we use to build our state-of-the-art solutions

  • React and Redux to provide one of the best foundations to the front end experience

  • SCSS as a preprocessor scripting language to be compiled into CSS
  • Webpack and Node.js scripts for automated and optimized builds
  • Jenkins for continuous integration and deployment
  • Jest and Cypress for unit and functional testing 
  • Automated code standards to avoid subjective code style debates 

Are you the one we’re looking for?

  • You demonstrate a strong technical leadership among your peers and are recognized for driving forward the product/project vision
  • You’re familiar with TypeScript and its advantages and you’re excited to use it more
  • You take initiative and question the status quo to improve existing processes and the product itself
  • You want to contribute to the sharing of knowledge in the team and are ready to help other developers grow through constant feedback
  • You understand the importance of constant communication with internal and external stakeholders, from individual contributors to C-level executives

What you will get yourself into

  • A team of over 600 product development professionals and customer-focused specialists to bounce ideas off 
  • A strong R&D leadership team with a proven history of expanding the capacity of our technical teams who will be important pillars in your growth
  • A culture of collaboration, innovation and feedback 
  • Lots of learning opportunities at every corner and all the support to pursue them 
  • A transparent career development framework and internal mobility possibilities 
  • An open space for making valuable contributions to the product, regardless of the time you have been with us
  • A flexible schedule as well as a work-life balance approach, prioritized by our management teams
