We’re a fast-growing startup with big ambitions! This is an exciting opportunity for a Senior Software Engineer to join our team.

If you care about software quality but find testing and QA boring, maybe you are curious whether there might be a better way? Do you love building new stuff, learning and working with emerging technologies? Working with a team of skilled engineers with the same passion as yours and a desire to build unique and groundbreaking products? If so, we would love to hear from you!

To help with our mission, we are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our core Product team. If you don’t live in Portugal but still want to apply, we can have a chat with you about working remotely.

Ideally, we’re looking for a wide variety of skills and experience, but don’t be put off if you don’t consider yourself an expert in every single one of these areas. If you see yourself here and share our passions, we’d still love to hear from you!

  • Building REST interfaces, use of Web-sockets
  • Strong JavaScript skills, along with HTML5/CSS3
  • Build systems (e.g., Maven, Gradle, Bazel)
  • Relational & NoSQL DBs (e.g., PostgresSQL, MySQL, MongoDB), and in-memory stores (e.g., Redis, Hazelcast)
  • Testing frameworks (e.g., JUnit, Jest)

Bonus Points

  • Relevant degree (or equivalent) in computer science / software engineering
  • ES6 and Node.js
  • Vue.js or React.js, as well as Flux-based architectures (e.g., VueX or Redux)
  • Building web crawlers, and utilising browser automation interfaces, e.g., Selenium, Chrome Remote Debugging
  • Testing expertise and experience of using advanced testing techniques such as Mocking, Stubbing, etc.
  • Ability to describe the browser’s high level architecture as well the page rendering process within
  • Java frameworks such as Spring, Dropwizard, etc. and/or JAX-RS AP
