Full stack developer - Summer job

Salary Competitive

About us and our vision

Metaito is a Norwegian startup located in Trondheim, Norway. It was founded February 2019 to develop and commercialize Factsplat, an innovative service that allows individuals to organize their digital resources in clear and flexible structures to enhance their browsing experience. For businesses, it is a management, collaboration and productivity tool that provides teams and individuals with a shared overview of resources, tools and workflows, helping them to efficiently execute their work processes.

Factsplat was developed in response to the lack of structure on the internet, and the increasing amount of tools and information. Our goal is to give people the capacity to filter, select, organize and share information flows that are relevant to them and their peers. We want to improve the world by making people more deliberate and aware of their use of tools and services on the internet.

The team now consists of three people. Factsplat has about 60 daily active users and several hot customer leads. We are looking for students who have the potential to become proficient full-stack developers. Learning, well-being and personal development are important focus areas for us. The summer job could be extended to a part-time or full-time position.


About the technology

Factsplat has been developed using modern cutting-edge technologies, which has enabled us to build stable software that is ready for rapid development and continuous improvement. The tech stack consists of the following technologies:

  • Vue.js: Our frontend was developed using Vue.js and the Nuxt.js framework. It is relatively easy to learn, and provides powerful yet simple capabilities. The frontend a separate application and communicates with the backend through a REST API. The application can be used as a PWA (Progressive Web App), opening up possibilities for utilizing native functionality on mobile phones.

  • Elixir: The backend was developed using Elixir and the Phoenix Framework. It has several advantages, such as fast prototyping, happy developers, impeccable fault tolerance, scalability and powerful concurrency. Elixir is used by Discord to power their real-time channels.

  • PostgreSQL: Used as our main database. PostgreSQL is open-source, fast, easy to set up, and supports json columns so we can store documents.

Working at
Metaito

We founded Metaito in February 2019, after more than 4 years at NTNU. The initial idea was sparked in 2014 when we discovered the challenge of organizing our resources as new students. We have since then gone through several iterations of prototypes. Through exploration of the problem, we have developed a vision. We want to give people control over their resources, help them organize information and facilitate sharing with others. We want to reduce distractions and improve focus. "There is an app for everything" is a famous quote. Today we can add "web based" to the statement. But still, there is no single app for everything. We constantly juggle apps that we choose based on goals, preferences and context. We use several apps for similar goals and we often use them in multiple contexts, such as work and personal. To solve these challenges we are creating a platform for organizing and sharing information and tools on the internet. Our plattform will let you organize any app, in other words it will help you juggle. We will let you use apps across contexts, as well as letting you use another one when it better suits your goals. We want to create a distraction free environment where you can organize the internet in a way that makes sense to you, while utilizing the strengths of the community. We want to give you focus and collaboration, without compromise.
