Driversnote is a product-centric and profitable tech startup based in central Copenhagen. We help more than 800.000 users in over 50 countries track their mileage conveniently and accurately in a fully automated manner using our mobile app and, optionally, an iBeacon placed in their car. We are 15 people doing design, product management, mobile and web development, marketing, support and customer success in close collaboration.
We use a product development process known as Shape Up, where a few key people take the role as shapers and define projects that can be designed, implemented and released within 6 weeks, known as cycles. For each 6 week cycle, we form new cross-functional teams with designers, developers, marketing and customer support people on them, and we let the teams focus exclusively on finishing their projects within the cycle. Each 6 week cycle is followed by a 2 week cool-down period, where we fix bugs, execute functional projects, evaluate how we did and plan the next cycle.
We like to say that our unfair advantage is that we care more than our competition, and our users and customers tend to agree when they review our app, respond to NPS surveys and rate our support. We also care a lot about our employees, and between each cycle the entire company has a Team Health Check together, where we rate and discuss how we work together and thrive in our roles. We have a generous budget set aside for each employee to develop their skills, and we try to do a lot of fun stuff together.
Our app is built in React Native with a few native components in Java and Swift mixed in. Our website is a fully fledged SaaS offering that does everything the mobile app does (except actual tracking, of course), plus a lot more: Backend with sync API for the mobile app, admin tool, email campaigns, subscription flow with Stripe integration - the list goes on.
The web backend is a modular Ruby on Rails application with a PostgreSQL database, Sidekiq with Redis for background jobs and GraphQL API. We split code into engines and gems to ensure a productive and maintainable code base. We run everything on Google Cloud and we deploy every day. The web frontend is built in modern React and Typescript with stringent use of our design library, a set of components developed and evolved in a collaboration between designers and developers.
As a small team maintaining apps across iOS and Android alongside with a comprehensive web backend and frontend, we value developers that are capable of and enjoy working on any part of the stack. As our new full-stack web developer, you will be faced with everything from how to optimize the database and update our APIs to being part of designing and implementing great and beautiful user experiences throughout our product. You don't have to be a master of the entire stack from day 1, but you must thrive with implementing all aspects of a feature. If you are curious to dip your toes in the mobile app at some point, even better.
It would be great if you have experience with both Ruby on Rails and React, but experience with similar tech such as Django, Angular, etc. and an eager interest to learn can also work. It would be a nice bonus if you have experience with PostgreSQL, Google Cloud, RSpec, Typescript, Bootstrap, Stripe, Node.js or React Native. You are also welcome to apply without much experience if you have a relevant education, but be ready to be challenged and prove your ability to build great stuff no matter your level of experience.
At Driversnote you will be part of a team composed of talented people that are fun to be around. You will have ample opportunity to influence decisions at all levels, and we hope we can both teach you something and learn something new from you. We look forward to returning to our spacious office in the friendly startup community of Matrikel 1 in the heart of Copenhagen, where we enjoy a great freshly cooked lunch every day, and networking and partying with other startups when times allow. Since many of us have spouses and kids that we enjoy spending time with, we can honestly say that we offer a healthy work-life balance along with a competitive salary and all the benefits you would expect.
If you’re interested in this position, get in touch and tell us why you’re the one for us. Share your work and share your thoughts. For further information, please contact CTO Casper Fabricius (+45) 40 50 84 09.
