Senior React Developer

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated
Yepstr is built on the vision of giving all youths a chance. In our app teenagers can find their first jobs in their neighborhood (babysitting, dog-minding etc.). As our Yeps (Young Entrepreneurs) level up they can charge higher hourly rates and eventually accept jobs for companies. We make sure the process is fun and safe. Now there’s a chance to join the core team in Stockholm as a React Native developer!

As a React developer at Yepstr you are at the very front of the line. Being part of a tight dev team you are entirely responsible for your own code and your own work. But with great responsibility comes great power. 

You are a highly technical person who is always curious about learning new things. At Yepstr you will have the opportunity to try out every aspect of working in a small fast-paced team. You don’t shy away from expressing leadership - whether it be technical leadership, building a great culture or setting the bar high.

You have 3+ years of professional React experience and you know the ins and outs of the framework. You know how to make a "beautiful" solution, but can also pull together a quick-n-dirty version when that's required.

It is a big plus if you have a bachelor's or master's degree in computer science or a similar field. 


Location

Yepstr HQ is located in Stockholm, but you don't necessarily have to. We have a well developed remote culture and we value skills, drive and thirst for knowledge over proximity to the office. The only thing we do require is that you live in a neighbouring timezone. If you are reading this and do live in Sweden, we have a beautiful office in Gamla Stan that we'd love for you to come visit. If you don't live in Sweden and decide to join Yepstr we will fly you to the office a couple times a year to make sure you are a part of our awesome team. We even offer a nice relocation package (complete with accomodations the first few months) for developers looking to join us here in Stockholm.


Base qualifications:

  • 3+ years of React experience

  • TypeScript (we do full stack TypeScript)

  • Keen on creating a superb end user experience and writing beautiful code

"Nice-to-have" skills:

  • node.js

  • React Native experience

  • Startup experience 

Your future team

The team that's out to change the world - and give all youths a chance in the labor market - is currently 8 strong full-time people. The product team that you'll be spending the majority of your time consists of battle scarred programmers with years of experiences as well as self taught junior developers with a crazy passion for coding. 

What we offer you

Joining at this early stage means that you are offered a very attractive options program. We offer a competitive salary based on your previous experience and merits. When Yepstr reaches its full potential your options will make sure that your salary is more of a "bonus" ;) 

You are, and will be treated as, an owner of Yepstr from Day 1. Complete freedom - work whenever and wherever you are the most productive. We honestly don’t care. As long as you take care of our company as well as we do.

We offer a modern office in central Stockholm (Gamla Stan) right next to the water. The office is ours (not a typical shared office space), meaning that we have full control over what we want it to be like.

Furthermore, we can guarantee that you will work with some of the smartest, most ambitious people in the startup sector in Sweden. We are all focused on the same goal – making Yepstr the best thing that’s come out of Sweden since flatpacked furniture and fish roe in a tube (Kaviar).

Working at
Yepstr

Yepstr's vision is to automate the process of finding ambitious young people their first jobs in their neighborhood - and when they are ready - to interviews and real jobs for companies. We've succeeded when all high-school students graduate with a Yepstr-resume filled with references and multiple job-interviews waiting for them... if they want them. We are a pretty cool group of people who've bonded together over the fact that we're all ambitious and want to make the world a bit better.
