About the job:

Fullstack Development here at Moonshiner comes in many roles. Currently there are 14 frontend developer employed that work on projects with various levels of complexity. There are smaller projects developed by a single person and there are projects where 50+ developers work with well defined processes on big systems. We actually have quite a lot of developers that have a strong full stack drive – mainly because our project differ in stacks, sizes and requirements. As an allrounder you will participate in projects that require know how and flexibility when it comes to technology. You will work with juniors, seniors and consultants on technical challenges, you will be responsible for the smooth development in existing teams and being the person that is also able to find out what can be done to improve.

Teams usually follow a lifecycle:

  • In the beginning of the project the team is already participating in requirements engineering and concept.
  • You work closely with UX/UI because the best designs are made when designers and developers work closely together. The efforts are estimated together with business development and tasks that need to be done and defined.
  • Estimations about the roadmap and structure are added to the tasks and depending on complexity distributed within the team.
  • The execution and mode of operation can differ per team because we give freedom in the structure. Daily standups, do jira based tracking, intense work sessions, communication frequency – the team decides how it wants to operate. We give each team the tools, best practices and know how to execute with quality.
  • The project is finished and the improvement possibilities are shared with everybody.

The Technology you will be working with:

  • You will work most likely with Javascript, PHP, maybe Java – we will take a look on your record and see which projects fit you best. We assume you are experienced in the whole ecosystem and know what you are doing.
  • You think about processes, architectures and what we can do to deliver high end software. You think beyond technologies only and figure out how tom solve the problem.

During the projects you will be faced with challenges, so it is important that you ask for help when needed, communicate your opinions and fears actively and be fair to your colleagues. We don’t expect you to understand everything we do right away, nobody hits the ground running.

You will work on bugs caused by other people. You will find simple solutions for complex problems. You will go deep. You will learn from us and we will learn from you.

Here are some things we’ve worked on recently that might give you a better sense of what you’ll be doing day to day:

  • The client wants a frontend for a MongoDB Database, that stores user interaction. We have worked with MongoDB, but are eager to learn how to handle it like a champ on the way.
  • A customer has a rough idea for a product. We join the customer in his thought process and see, how we can put the requirements into a simple and meaningful prototype.
  • There is commitment on project delivery milestones and dates. We run into issues because there was a misunderstanding in the scope, you help to figure out how we can put a temporary solution in place so we don’t have to reiterate a full sprint.

About you

You already have web programming skills and worked on given designs. You know about component driven architecture and how to structure requirements into code.

  • Quality code is important to you. You know that people will work with your code and you will be working with other people’s code. You should know how to balance your own high standards of code quality with the problems you are solving and external constraints like how time-sensitive it is or the impact it will have.
  • Solving problems is exciting to you. You are happy working through difficult technical problems and solving them in straight-forward ways. If you don’t know the answer immediately, you will be comfortable digging into the problem until you figure it out and know when it’s time to ask for assistance.

The development process is important. You have worked with Git before and did a commit already. You know how to tackle critiquing others code in a positive and productive way and receiving the same sort of feedback.

Communication is important to us and so it should be to you. You should value empathy and kindness and be able to articulate your ideas and feelings when writing or speaking.

Moonshiner is an equal opportunity employer. We extend equal opportunities to all individuals without regard to race, religion, colour, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation and gender identity), national origin, disability, or age.
