Full Stack Developer (m/f)
- Mit Berufserfahrung
Factory’s IT Department is looking for a full stack developer with a focus on Elixir to help identify, plan, implement, and deploy systems to support our mission of creating the best possible startup community and connecting the right people. The opening is for our Berlin HQ. The successful candidate is one who can embrace our core values, is a good team player and an avid problem solver.
By joining our team, you get the chance to work for Germany's largest startup campus with a network that includes Google, DigitalOcean or Techstars among others. You will see the impact of your job directly in our community. We always try to use the best tool for the job and are open to your suggestions. You will have the luxury of working for a company that is not afraid of using cutting edge technology. Moving fast is key for us.
Note: We are aware that Elixir is a quite young language and that there aren’t that many developers out there. If you are an experienced developer in a language like Ruby, understand functional programming and can convince us that you are a talented problem solver and quick learner you might just be right for the job.
The candidate will work on member management, application process, customer relationship management, data collection, payment and match-making solutions. At times this involves evolving our existing solutions to meet new requirements; on other occasions, this requires building out new tools or rebuilding existing tools as needed. The candidate will work alongside other developers, designers, project managers, and business stakeholders to make decisions and ensure priorities are met. The next main project will include applying machine-learning techniques to understand our community better and create valuable matches.
