Senior Javascript Developer

Kaleido is hiring a Senior Javascript Developer to extend and improve, the market-leading solution for automated background removal with Artificial Intelligence.

Your Role

You will develop both frontend and backend code with a strong focus on Javascript.

  • After one week, you will write code that helps thousands of photographers, designers and businesses in their daily work. You will implement features with an immediate positive impact, learn from user feedback and publish improvements for frontend code and documentation.
  • After one month, you will take ownership of 1-2 integrations (like our Vue.js-based editor or our Electron-based desktop app). You will receive customer feedback, prioritize functional and non-functional work and will work with our UX designer on entirely new interfaces and features. You will start working on our backend infrastructure and write code that is executed millions of times each day.
  • After one quarter, you will lead the development of multiple integrations, existing and new ones, as well as parts of the backend infrastructure. You will manage code quality, work on improving performance and compatibility and be involved in feature decisions. You will make data-based decisions from production metrics and work on improving the scalability, reliability and usability of backend and frontend products.

Your Profile

  • You have 5+ years of experience with software development and 3+ years with JavaScript.
  • You have worked extensively with Vue.js or React on multiple projects.
  • You know how to utilize modern language features to write JavaScript code that is readable, maintainable and minimizes the amount of "happy little javascript surprises"
  • As a senior developer you know when and how to set up effective tooling (build, CI, CD) without going down the rabbit hole. You understand when "done is better than perfect" and when investing for the longer term is worth it. You can work independently and know when it's best to get a second opinion or ask for help.
  • Fluent English skills (both written and spoken)
  • Self-motivated, ability to learn quickly and adapt to changes

Hard Facts

  • 38.5 h/week, starting Mid-September or October 2019
  • The salary for this position is EUR 60.000 gross per year or more, depending on your qualifications and experience.
  • You receive company shares of a rapidly & organically growing, bootstrapped company.
