  • Within 6 months, you fully understand the codebase of a secondary project.

  • Within 12 months, you re-organize and improve critical pieces of code.

What we offer:

  • 5 talented, skilled, and motivated colleagues

  • A modern tech stack: Node.js, React, TypeScript, GraphQL. Terraform infrastructure on AWS.

  • A lot of responsibility and freedom. We hire only experts and trust them to deliver excellent results.

  • Flexible working hours and location. The results are what count!

  • Visits to Leuven: you will visit our office in Leuven (the world’s capital of beer) a few times per year. We pay for flights and accommodation so you can have fun with the team.

  • The opportunity to play games and claim it's work.

Reach out if:

  • You are intelligent, efficient, and organized. You have an attention to detail.

  • You like open, efficient, and to-the-point communication and you have experience in working remotely.

  • You have a strong understanding of a wide range of technical topics (ranging from databases and UNIX to software engineering patterns and browser rendering).

  • You have experience with server-side rendered React applications and with Typescript.

  • You like diving into new things, open-source libraries, browser APIs, and more.
