Software Engineer - Full stack - Inhouse or remote

Salary Competitive

Join us in building the tools we need, to create the world we want 🌍

If we are going to solve some of the most pressing challenges of our time, such as the climate and biodiversity crisis or global inequality, we need to become much better at organising ourselves.

Acter is a non-profit organisation, building an open source tool to support communities, activists and movements across the world, enabling them to better organise, mobilise and coordinate action.


From pilot to full functional and scalable platform

During the last three years we have managed to build a pilot with our users.

We have  established partnerships with global organisations, built a community of users and expanded our contributor community, consisting of developers, designers and ambassadors.

We are now looking to take Acer from a pilot, to a fully functional and scalable platform. This includes maturing the current web app, with development of core features, responsive design, improved speed and initiating the build of a native mobile version.

To do this, we are looking for the right person who is bold, crazy, visionary and skilled enough, to lead the build of what will become the go to platform for coordinating action on global challenges.


🧙‍♀️ About you

  • As a human, you are kind and passionate. As a team member you are supportive and curious and not afraid to ask questions. 

  • You want to use your skills as a developer  to change the status quo and believe that technology (if used right) holds the potential to push for the transformative change that is needed.

  • You love to code and are eager to learn and seek new knowledge. 

  • You are comfortable with high uncertainty and see opportunities instead of barriers or limitations.


📝 What you will do

  • Lead the implementation of end-to-end features from specifications and designs

  • Problem solve permutations and edge cases

  • Maintain quality and platform reliability

  • Participate in scrum meetings to plan development sprints

  • When needed, participate in partnership meetings to understand needs and together with our team identify, develop and deploy features.

  • Support our open source community of developers (review pull requests, answering technical questions, help build an effective structure)


🤹‍♀️ Your professional qualifications

  • You should be comfortable developing both web and native app systems and preferably have a few examples to show

  • Experience min. 4-5 years

  • Full stack experience

  • Able to communicate with team members, co-developers and stakeholders

  • Experience with agile methodology, incl. sprint planning 

  • You have good time management skills, including prioritising and scheduling. 


1️⃣Required skills

  • React

  • Typescript

  • GraphQL

  • Next.js

  • Understanding of visual and UX design principles. 


2️⃣Its an advantage to have know-how within:

  • Material-UI

  • Storybook

  • Heroku

  • Open Source projects


🎉What we can offer in return 

  • A 4 day work week

  • High autonomy and freedom with responsibility 

  • Working with a small but kick ass team that values trust, psychological safety and mental wellbeing.

  • Working closely together with awesome social right movements, environmental groups and networks around the world.


🔮Expectation

  • We are securing funding to pay salary (start-up range)

  • Acter is self-owning and as such we can't offer direct equity. Instead we offer a position in the core team that manages and leads the development.

  • Currently, we have an office in Aarhus but also work remotely (Maximum plus, minus 4 hours of CET)

  • We are looking for someone who feel strongly connected to Acter’s mission and who intends to commit for a longer period, despite the ups and downs and uncertainty that is given in a not-for-profit, open source project like Acter.

⭕️ Important:

In the short message in the application, please describe:

1. Why you want to become part of the Acter team.

2. What drives you?

3. If you could have dinner with any person (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
