About You

Are you passionate about solving problems, working in a team, and mentoring others? Does working in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment excite you? If so, we would like to talk to you for the opportunity of a Senior Web Developer on our innovative, fast-growing E-Commerce team.

You have valuable learning's from past experience with commercial-grade web applications, and are eager to share them with the people around you. The opportunity we have is working in a corporate start-up environment and building up a great culture in a growing team, yet, you must be aware of the potential downsides of working in a corporate start-up environment too! When something goes wrong, you don't look to place blame, but try to address the immediate issue collaboratively and then address any underlying issues with great interpersonal skills. You are eager to receive radically honest feedback about both your code and your working style. At the same time keen to give radically honest feedback about your coworkers' code and working styles.

You must have an expert-level knowledge of the web in general (Javascript, HTML, CSS, browsers & networking), of best practices in software development (e.g. Agile, SCRUM, DevOps) and of at least some of the tools that we are using. The role requires you to help us make technical content, like how-to YouTube videos, to help us promote our company and culture. We would like to see your code samples you can share with us in addition to your resume, these you may have contributed to top-tier open source software projects in the past (send us your GitHub profile!).

You are willing to live and work in Dubai, and you are willing to travel as needed to Hyderabad, India, where we have a development partner.
