Javascript Developer

Salary Competitive

Hey! Yeah, we are happy that we caught your attention. Welcome!


Abtion is a digital agency. We design and build digital products for others. We are 30 employees, roughly 80% of whom are programmers. So, as a developer, you will be surrounded by like-minded and given a unique opportunity to learn and grow.

At Abtion, we focus on delivering value to our clients. Our way of working is heavily inspired by eXtreme Programming. By doing that, our developers get all the necessary context to make the right decisions. We talk daily with our clients and debate solutions in teams.

At Abtion, you will work with different technologies, teams, and clients. It’s OK if you have a preferred technology stack, but you must be ready to expand it.


Here is a list of our expectations for you:

  • You have experience developing web-based applications in Javascript.

  • You have experience with a modern frontend framework such as React, Vue, or Angular.

  • You write automatic tests for your applications and understand the importance of reliable software.

  • You have experience developing in the backend. Or perhaps, you don’t have the experience yet, but you are eager to learn.

  • You enjoy finding the right solution with your team.

  • You understand when to make compromises and what brings value to the product.

  • You use a version control system such as Git.


These are our preferred stack and frames:

  • Our frontend is sometimes a SPA in React, Vue, or a React Native app. Sometimes, it is backend-generated in Rails or .NET with sparks of Javascript.

  • We have backend systems in Nodejs, Ruby on Rails, .Net (C#), and PHP.

  • We strive for 100% test coverage.

  • We practice a lot of pair programming.

  • We host our apps in Heroku, Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud.

  • We use Docker in the development environment.

  • We use Github and Github Actions for the CI.

  • We have green fields projects that we start from our templates, as well as legacy systems that we continuously improve.

  • We work under different constraints on each project. The setup is not always ideal. We always strive to make the best out of every situation.


Abtion as a workplace

In Abtion, we are all employed on regular 37-hour contracts and get paid accordingly—but we only work four days a week, 30 hours in total from Monday to Thursday. On Fridays, it is our “job” to rest and relax (except for five days a year when we meet for “team day”). You can learn more about our 4-day work week here: https://bit.ly/3gpAcMh

We have a “work from anywhere” but we have a strong preference for people showing up at the office as we belive that working synchronously makes us more effective. At the same time, we also recognize that working from home offers a special setting to focus and be productive.

Although we take time off every Friday, we also take holidays, of course. You get six weeks of vacation a year.

We have two offices. One in Copenhagen and one in Odense, and we are roughly the same number of people in each office. You have to decide for yourself where your desk should stand. In both offices, you will get a healthy and delicious lunch, served from the outside, every day.

How to apply for the position

We are not interested in your gender, CPR number, age, and nationality, nor do we need a picture of you. We judge you solely on your competencies and experience.


Here is a list of the conversations you can expect to go through:

  • Informal coffee talk, which primarily aims to ensure that there is good chemistry between us.

  • 2 x “pairing session”, where you, in close collaboration with two developers, solve a task.


We are pretty thorough with our hiring process. It is important to us that we choose our new colleague carefully—just as it is vital for us to ensure that we are the right place for you.


We look forward to receiving your CV.

Working at
Abtion

Abtion is a creative technology company building software and services that make life better, easier and more fun. Zeros and ones are the backbone of our work, and together with a diverse mix of designers, developers and strategists, we create websites, mobile- and web applications with a purpose.  Our approach is human-centered. We don’t just do pretty, we design strategic and business-oriented — and with purpose. Just because something is smart from a technological point of view, it is not necessarily what creates the best experience for the user (and the best business for you). We make decisions based on user insights and data. We are always on the lookout for new talents to join our office in Copenhagen or Odense. So do not be shy and drop us a line!
