  • Front-end Developer for Bootstrapping Start-up

    Open or Close
    Position: Full-time
    Working hours: 40 hours /week
    Location: Budapest downtown, but with flexibility to work from home
    Salary: Negotiable, based on experience
    Contact info: work@pulilab.com

    Pulilab is a start-up company with HQ in the center of Budapest.

    Our partner is a London based bootstrapping start-up, working on a photo application that will challenge the photo sharing apps currently on the market. Thinking differently from the usual names, they want to offer a different approach to users, and to do this, they need a Front-end Developer to join and help shaping the app and growing the project.

    About you:

    • You want to change things, you are not afraid of taking risks and playing with cutting edge technologies to make the web a more enjoyable place.
    • You breathe photographs, eat jpgs and the only sprite you know is not something you drink.
    • You live to create the next best user experience.
    • You are an exceptional, result driven person who is not afraid of saying “I made a mistake” and does not shield behind excuses.
    • Experience is important, but attitude is key.
    • You are a doer, for you “impossible is nothing” and you are a quick learner.
    • Having at least a couple of years experience will open the doors to your CV.
    • Last, but not least, you think code is poetry, and shortcuts are for those who do not understand that poetry.

    Your tasks would be:

    Our project is form and substance. We are working hard to provide the system a reliable substance, and our designer is dreaming the next version UI. You will have to bring the two worlds together, realising in HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript what we see. You will have to play on both the desktop and the mobile world.

    You will work on a set of clearly written specifications, and the time spent on documentation will be minimal.

    We are a diverse team, spread around the world, working in a very agile way. Every morning we wake up and set the tasks that will allow us to make meaning.

    If you prefer the simple, straight to the point task list, here you go:

    • Check tasks and read a simple documentation
    • Transform a design vision into a sexy layout
    • Communicate in simple, bitesize messages
    • Online and face to face meeting when needed

    Management Chain:

    You will report directly to the company CTO, and work in direct contact with the company designer and the senior developer of the team. The managerial style is very relaxed and target driven: we want to see good quality software, and we are not interested in micromanaging how you do things.

    The CTO has almost two decades of experience in development and has a passion for photography and how images can drive changes and tell stories.

    Skills you should bring to us:

    • Advanced in HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript
    • ReactJS or AngularJS know-how is a plus
    • Experience with PHP5, and Laravel is an advantage
    • Knowledge of responsive design, beyond the framework understanding
    • GIT
    • Knowledge of agile, especially scrum
    • Work experience with TDD is a plus
    • Asana GTD environment experience is a plus
    • Preferebly having ninja organisational skills

    PS: if any any of the acronyms in this job description are obscure to you, or if you did not get few of the jokes (or even if you did not find them funny) maybe this job is not going to suit your style.

    How to apply: 

    Please send your application material (CV with a photo + net salary expectation) in English to work@pulilab.com.
