About us

50 Employees

We are looking for a senior software engineer who can start contributing right away, but even more importantly we would like to find someone who has a mindset and is excited to learn, grow, and adapt over time. You have several years of experience in a role as a software engineer, lead developer, or software architect. 

Your role

We are looking for someone who:

• Is always seeking for the best abstraction and refactoring opportunity

• Knows what domain modelling is and can use it a daily basis to build long-lasting services

• Appreciates writing tests as much as building the feature itself. 

• Can translate the strategic and product vision of GRESB into a long-term software architecture for the team. 

• Has a keen interest in what it takes to nurture an energizing culture and a high performing team.

The Team

The team consists of product owners, software engineers, UX designers, and data scientists coming from various backgrounds. We’re currently with a total of 16 people coming from 12 different nationalities. In 2021 we will significantly grow the team, mainly in terms of software engineering capabilities. We embrace and value agile thinking, open communication and a collaborative spirit. 

The position

You will help us maintain and extend our platform. This involves upgrading and refactoring older components as well as writing new well tested features. We are open to new ideas that will help us deliver more value, more efficiently, and more scalable by redesigning parts of the products and processes. 

GRESB is currently in a transitional phase, which means we are focusing our efforts on streamlining the codebase so that we can innovate and grow rapidly and sustainably over the next few years.

You are a “force multiplier” with excellent communication and mentoring skills, helping other developers to increase their craftsmanship. You:

• have strong professional skills

• are a self-starter 

• thrive on change and creating business impact. 

• have a very pragmatic approach

• can function at your best in a company in a transitional phase

You should also have a proven track record of creating and implementing a technology architecture that supports a business strategy in a start-up/scale up environment.

Our tech stack includes Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, Memcached, StimulusJS and a sprinkling of Grape, Go and React. It's deployed on AWS via a CI/CD pipeline.

Your profile

Our key requirements are:

• Experience with Ruby/Ruby on Rails

• Knowledge of relational databases

• Experience with object-oriented programming

• Experience with Test Driven Development

• Excellent communication and mentoring skills

• Strong architecture skills

Experience with the following will be considered a plus:

• DevOps (AWS, Docker, CI/CD, Kubernetes)

• Experience with Java or any other typed and compiled language

• Experience with NoSql databases

• Bootstrap / SASS

• React / Redux

• Javascript (ES6)
