React/Ruby on Rails developer
Who we are
In Ben Loop we are developing custom-made mobile and web applications. We focus on long-term cooperation in projects and we collaborate with clients from around the globe. Besides the Czech Republic, they are from Spain, Germany, and USA at the moment.
Our clients include advanced start-ups as well as bigger and well-established companies and their internal start-ups.
What will your working day look like
Ben Loop was founded by two freelancers and, perhaps, that’s why we put great emphasis on personal freedom.
You can start when you want in the morning and decide yourself where you’re going to work. We usually work remotely in Ben Loop, but there are certain periods when we gladly go to our office in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
First thing in the morning we have an asynchronous stand-up via Slack when we summarize the previous day’s issues as well as tasks for the current day.
Everyone then works on their assignments during the day and any other potential communication is carried on via Basecamp/Github/Slack. Nobody checks anybody as for when and how they work – only the results are important.
During the day and at the end of it, we commit the work to Github where another developer always performs Code Review for you after you complete a task.
Who we are looking for
It’s nice if you have contributions to another project or you have your own open projects and apps, as visible activity on Github, for at least several past months, is important for us.
Another important thing for us is the ability to learn new things, open-mindedness, a common touch and the ability to deal with problems independently.
What we can gradually offer to you
Not just any degree of freedom
Remote work and flexible working hours (please read – you work no more than 8 hours, when you decide, not from sun to sun).
Everybody in Ben Loop can take as much paid holiday as they want. We consider rest as an inseparable part of work and therefore we don’t prevent anybody from taking time off when it’s needed.
New hardware on a regular basis
Everyone gets a new MacBook and iPhone or an Android phone (of your choice) every two or three years.
How to apply?
To apply for this position please send a short summarization of your work experience to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t send us a typical CV, nobody will read it. Also, open source activity or open projects are required for this positions, so don’t forget to add a link to your Github profile. We accept only the applicants who live in the Europe or Brazil. Please add “55” at the end of the subject of your email - we will ignore all emails without it.
