SENIOR SOFTWARE DEVELOPER - (XP/Ruby/Rails/React)

Salary Competitive
JOIN OUR TEAM IN COPENHAGEN OR ODENSE! Abtion is a creative technology company with over 10 years of history delivering of great products to clients. Abtion builds mobile apps, websites, and hardware projects with a purpose on daily basis. Our team is at the core of everything we do and what ultimately leads to our success in innovating for clients.

ABOUT YOU

We’re looking for engineers who like dynamic client/agency projects, and who write and maintain extensible, well-tested code that can be easily handed off to customers. You are a great fit because you are kind, enjoy dialog, and have spent 5+ years as a developer. You have a strong understanding of some of our technologies, and have prior experience working with legacy code bases. You care about the end user of the product as much as the developer who will work on your code next. You don’t need to have a degree, or to have worked with all of our technologies before. If you’re strong with rails, and not with react, that is ok.


ABOUT THE WORK

As a senior software engineer, you will help us lead projects for clients from Maersk to Lego to Sennheiser. You’ll also be helping to shape our daily process and work: test driving new features, pairing with clients to refactor code, helping our sales team to scope the work that is scheduled, collaborating with designers to produce mocks that are technically informed, mentoring junior engineers, and experimenting with new technologies.


ABOUT THE TECH

Most often, you will see a backend rails api paired with react or react native. We also have some wordpress, php/laravel, python/django, and vue if those strike your fancy. We make extensive use of Ruby/Rails, Javascript, AWS, Heroku, Docker, Postgres, Redis, CircleCI, New Relic, Rspec, and Jest. We also have some growing interest in infrastructure as code.


ABOUT THE INTERVIEW

We like to keep it as short as possible while also getting to know each other. We expect to spend about 16 hours on you, and you to spend 8 hours on us.

  1. Initial Meet - coffee or phone chat to see if there’s mutual interest

  2. Basic skills & Career desires - 1.5 hour pairing session or take home task and conversation about your career

  3. Lunch & Coding - 3 hr morning or afternoon working with a real team

  4. Recap - exchange feedback with us

  • Learn the nuts and bolts of our business and your new project

  • Pair program with many members of the team to complete your first feature

  • Participate in a planning meeting and a retrospective for your project

Within 90 days

  • Participate in an scoping meeting to plan upcoming feature work

  • Test drive the implementation of a feature, guide it through CI and automated deployment

  • Pair with a designer to help guide creation of visual mocks

ABTION

Abtion is a 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.  WE ARE GOOD AT                                                                                 Websites - Advanced web apps - Mobile apps - IOT - Machine Learning - Games We are a creative technology company, a colourful cocktail of thinkers, designers and engineers — shaken with passion and powers to push forward. Our engineers and focus on technology is what sets us apart. We never have to think impossible, we always think possible and encourage improvement. Nothing is too hard. 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. Abtion is not another digital agency. We are not that much into sprinkle and icing - we are more into the cake itself, the plate and the cutlery. We build products and services that roots in the hearts of the businesses we work with. Our products reduce complexity and improves efficiency and our services connect companies with their customers with loyalty and value. We are always on the look out for new talent to join our office in Copenhagen or Odense. Don’t be shy and say hi!
