Our recruitment idea

We have projects from different sectors, using a variety of technology stacks, startup or enterprise environments, and in different phases of the product life cycle which require different skills and levels of experience from candidates. You can switch teams, but by mutual agreement between you and your leaders - it's all about discussion. This means that you won't be thrown into "projects” for a week and switch between them weekly, which sometimes happens in traditional software houses. Instead, you can plan your career path with us, since when you want to switch your technology, sector, team, or position, we will support you. Moreover, even after you switch, we can still support your career growth because we will know your story, needs, and expectations

You can apply for a position that seems interesting to you and in which you meet the requirements, then we will help you find the best fit during the recruitment process.

We will help you decide on an open position which matches your background and experience during the walkthrough.

See you @ social e-commerce team

We are a team of 10 people working on a social commerce product.

Our team is based on trust, Extreme Ownership, and constant improvement. We work hard to make the product great, but we also care about each other. We think long-term. We believe that great work requires well-rested people, peer support, a healthy environment, and plenty of time for learning.

What do we do?

We are building e-commerce that is part of a bigger social platform. The Platform consists of Web and native mobile apps. We recently launched a new version of the web store. In the coming months, we will focus on improving conversion rates and building the best possible UX.

What does a typical week look like?

We kick off with Tuesday's Planning session. The entire team meets to discuss what the goal for the week is. During planning, we expect everyone to be proactive. We don't wait for someone to assign tasks - we decide what to work on together.

After planning we kickoff the work.

Each day we have a standup at 9:30 am. We try to keep this meeting as short as possible (5-10 minutes), so we discuss the only dependencies we have between each other. We try to understand where any blocks are and how we can remove them. It's also a time to socialize a bit - we know that remote work can be lonely!

On Thursday we run a refinement session to make sure we can have good planning for the next sprint.

Every Tuesday we run a demo session with a bigger team, to share our progress and discuss the results. After the demo, we do a quick retro session to celebrate small wins and find places for improvement.

During the week, you will be participating in meetings strictly related to the Product or development. We are convinced that you should join only those meetings that you can make an impact on.

We prefer to keep our communication asynchronous so we use Slack a lot.

On Fridays, we force ourselves to slow down a bit. We don't take actions that put us at risk of having the weekend interrupted by work. There's no pressure to do any last-minute deploys or releases on Friday. Take your time and think about next week's goals. Prepare yourself for Monday's planning so we can run it smoothly. Ask questions if you have doubts about next week's goals. See you on Monday!

You would be the ideal fit for our team if you:

  • have lead engineering team,

  • have worked closely with the product & business,

  • understand and value the Agile approach,

  • have a sufficiently deep background in backend or frontend development to help the team to define actions,

  • can ask the right questions to find obstacles and prioritize work for the engineering team,

  • empower the team to solve problems instead of micromanaging them,

  • be good at communicating technical information to non-technical stakeholders,

  • have experience in hiring engineers,

  • be a supportive and challenging person - you let people do their best work,

  • value empathetic and direct communication,

  • be a strategic thinker - you focus on the long term rather than the short term.

If you…

  • have expertise in at least one frontend or backend technology,

  • have experience in e-commerce,

  • have scaled startups or supported businesses in their rapid growth,

  • are able to simplify work on the design phase,

  • have worked with a product that has a significant number of active users.

…it will also be great!
