What Is Employee Growth Rate & Why Is It Important?

Whitespectre is a product-centric, Rails-led technology consultancy for both VC funded start-ups and large, established companies across the US and Europe. We’re also a product incubator with our own applications and B2B SaaS platform. As long-term partners to our clients, we’ve played a critical role in their growth – both through the products we co-create and the expertise and processes we bring. Proudly remote first since 2013, we’re a close-knit team of 75, working in fast-moving, cross-functional agile pods to solve interesting technical challenges and drive real business impact.

What’s it like to be a Frontend Engineer at Whitespectre?
  • Our front-end developers have the ability to make beautiful user experiences come to life. They can partner with UI/UX and are able to think like product owners- being able to advocate for code quality as a long term strategic investment while knowing when to adapt a more start-up mentality to deliver rapid business value. They can go full-stack when needed to make the frontend functional, but their passion is to stay up to date with the latest visual and Javascript techniques / trends. And, of course, share with and learn from the collective Whitespectre rails brain trust.
  • Whitespectre operates on a fully-modern tech stack- toolset includes ReactJS, Typescript, Webpack, REST/GraphQL, Rails, Postgres, Elastic, CI/CD with Docker, Heroku/AWS, etc. Working smartly is important to us; automation, dynamic environments spin up with new feature branches and slack bot integrations control our production releases.
  • The majority of our projects involve building greenfield applications and our delivery teams typically own products end to end – your thinking and contribution make a big impact!
  • You can read more about life in our engineering team in this blog post by our Senior Engineer, Eneko.

This is the right position for you if want-
  • To have a “product” mindset – that you’ll enjoy the challenge of collaborating with UI/UX Designers and Product Managers to advocate for technology solutions while bearing in mind the tradeoffs for business results
  • The responsibility of designing new solutions and being confident to justify your technology decisions. (Plus debating and recognizing when a colleague has an even better idea!)
  • To be able to go full-stack (on a modern Rails7 project)
  • To solve problems that can’t be addressed by just searching Stack Overflow
  • The opportunity to go outside your core expertise and strong skills with other technologies and learn more.
  • An environment where excellent communication skills (both verbal and written) are valued and honed.
A culture where people from different backgrounds interact, collaborate and reach a shared goal

The “check the box” Requirements
  • 3+ years of experience in software development, 2+ years of HTML/CSS/animation/ Javascript experience. Ideally, you’ll have worked on Rails projects before and hopefully used React.
  • Experience contributing to technical decision making within a team
  • Can work full-time with a significant crossover with the core hours: 11am – 6pm Central European Time
  • Live outside of the US. Please, no recruitment agencies.
