Office chair at startup with a social impact looking for a software developer’s butt

March 20, 2019

Looking for new opportunities as freelance or employee?

This chair is sad and has been alone for too long... In order to make it happy, we are actively looking for a software developer with the right attitude. In case you’d prefer a standup desk, we’ll gladly thank the chair for its service and move on. You get to decide if it stays or not. Commuty is a young company that is tackling mobility problems of our society. We focus on commuters as they are the main cause of today’s mobility problems. We build mobility tools for the B2B market. In other words, we help companies change their employees commute habits. We have a truckload of ideas that don’t necessarily apply to B2B but we are missing a few more smart people in our team to get it to the next level. Commuty has several large customers in Belgium, including a couple of companies in the BEL20. In the near future, we want to grow our customer base and move forward with new challenges. As a software developer at Commuty, you’ll have the opportunity to work with the following tech:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Angular
  • Kotlin
  • Ionic
  • Docker / Ansible / AWS

This is the stack that we use now, but you will be encouraged to use whatever else you feel like that delivers value to the project! Our system is a set of several micro-services interacting together. Some parts will be open-sourced soon (with your help?). Your role will involve:

  • Helping shape our products based on customer’s feedback
  • Building MVP’s for new product ideas
  • Developing custom services for our customers
  • Implementing new ideas and concepts in existing products
  • Working closely with the folks that are taking good care of our platform at the moment
  • Helping open-source some parts of our system
  • Being as awesome as you can be

Now let’s be honest, we won’t lie, there is no way we can offer you the salary package of a large consultancy company so let’s put it this way:

  • We will pay you a decent salary (yay!)
  • You will work decent and normal hours, we don’t need a cafeinated monkey, we need a well rested, clear headed team member
  • You’ll work with and will be helped by experienced developers
  • Your opinion will be very important, we need a partner, not a code-pisser
  • You’ll be working on a real society problem, not some potential 1M€/month cash cow mumbo jumbo
  • You can negotiate your perks, just talk to us
  • We will trust you

Who should apply?

We’re more looking for attitude than pure skills. If you’re a true smart learner with little experience in product development, talk to us. If you already have experience, then we will gladly welcome you as well. We can offer both employed and/or freelance positions, it’s up to you.
