At Transloadit we're passionate about growing a service, and making a huge dent with a small team. We're all engineers and in it for the love of the game. We're more interested in doing things right than cutting corners for quick pay-off.
Hence our code is not done until it's tested & refactored. Our support is not done until the customer is happy. This attitude has allowed us to build a reliable service that's fun to use and work on. It has allowed us to grow a loyal customer base without having done sales or marketing yet. In 2012 we became ramen profitable and since then we've quadrupled in size.
We're now looking to hire someone who can share our vision and would enjoy making Transloadit better with us, day by day, bit by bit.
We have a job opening for an engineer to help us with development, sysadmin, and support tasks. We realize that's many different areas of expertise. It's ok if you still need to learn a few tricks. We like our employees to grow into positions that suit them. We think the diversity that comes with our job is what keeps it fresh and rewarding. It enables us to build a more cohesive product.
Things we are looking for
- Fluent in written English (most of our customers are US based)
- Experience as a developer professionally
- Intrinsic motivation to make customers (also developers) happy
- Open source enthusiast
- Experience with Git(Hub)
