  • Work on dev-ops, CI/CD, environments, configuring services over cloud etc

  • Unit Testing and Test-Driven Development.


Currently, we use the following technologies/frameworks:

  • ReactJS

  • NodeJS

  • NestJS

  • PostgreSQL

  • TypeORM


Essential skills:

  • Strong proficiency with NodeJS, TypeScript, JavaScript, web stacks, libraries, and frameworks.

  • Experience in building backend applications using NodeJS frameworks such as Express, StrongLoop, NestJS etc.

  • Experience with design and development of Rest APIs (Swagger)

  • Understanding the nature of asynchronous programming and its quirks and workarounds.

  • Design and implementation of low-latency, high-availability, and performant applications

  • Experience working with database systems as well as data modelling for SQL databases such as PostgresSQL.

  • Experience working with AWS services like S3, Lambda, API Gateway, SES, SNS etc

  • Experience with AWS CI/CD tools like AWS Code Commit, Code Deploy etc

  • Experience working with Docker and Container architecture and exposure to Kubernetes.

  • Experience in creating a reliable microservices based architecture.

  • Understanding differences between multiple delivery platforms, such as mobile vs. desktop, and optimizing output to match the specific platform


You will like this role, if you:

  • Enjoy building challenging features.

  • Want to join an early stage company with all the excitement that comes with it.

  • Are comfortable in a dynamic and flexible remote work environment allowing everyone to be themselves.


Salary

We pay fair salaries according to your experience and location.


Diversity

We are excited to receive applications from all genders and backgrounds and we particularly encourage applications from non-typical developer candidates. Don’t be afraid to reach out to us to discuss the position.


About Freyja

Freyja is fighting sexual abuse and violence by building a safe and sustainable adult social media. Think instagram meets Tiktok meets OnlyFans.

Freyja's mission is to reduce sexual harassment and abuse, which stems from the consumption of unregulated and unmoderated harmful content on existing adult entertainment platforms. As sex-educators, charities, brands, and performers are often blocked from using mainstream social media, users are left with the content on harmful platforms which they often (unintentionally) copy. By offering creators a safe space to interact with their audience and users a place to find what they are looking for, Freyja improves sexual education and prevents sexual harassment and abuse.

We are building a remote first team with founders being located in London (UK) and Helsinki (Finland).

Working at
Freyja XO Oy

Freyja is initiating a new era for social media platforms, moderation practices, and user protection. Its sophisticated moderation and safety system is ground-breaking and allows it to offer a voice to a marginalized group of creators. Educators, charities, and brands, who offer important sex-education and awareness, don’t have a platform to promote their cause. Mainstream social media censors any mention of sensitive topics, such as sex, and ban creators without warning. As a result, the human right of sexual education is being denied, which is particularly problematic when women’s sexual rights are being stripped away repeatedly. Charities that focus on reducing revenge porn and image based sexual abuse find themselves censored, or banned for talking about their work. Companies focused on sexual health testing, period products, sex therapy and contraception also find themselves banned or censored Educators try to improve education and find themselves censored for naming a body part. Sex workers face the worst discrimination as they are instantly deleted, even when they haven’t posted anything more explict than a bikini photos, whereas a celebrity might post something actually pornographic or link directly to an adult site and not face the same censorship or bans. Freyja acknowledges this overlap of education and adult entertainment and addresses this by offering a safe environment, where people can find what they are looking for: education or entertainment. Freyja is a social media platform, which does not censor or discriminate. It’s a platform, where individuals, charities, and brands can post about sex-education, their products, and their charity work. Creators can monetize their content with a range of payment options or post content for free, like on any other social media platform.
