Full-Stack Engineer at CitizenLab
As a Full-Stack Engineer in the Engagement squad, you contribute to our core product, which allows local governments to engage their citizens through a wide range of digital participation methods. You’re part of a cross-functional squad. While you can contribute to both our Ruby back-end and our React front-end, you specialize in one. You help your colleagues to bridge knowledge gaps.
At CitizenLab, we work in small teams where members collectively take ownership of the outcome of the features they build. We work in short iterations, test rigorously and release continuously. We’re strong believers in user testing and understanding live product usage.
You actively contribute to the specifications of new features, uncovering technical constraints and breaking down the work in iterations and tasks.
You take ownership over your tasks and implement them in close contact with your colleagues.
You take into account all aspects, from data models to testing, to performance, delivering well-engineered scalable solutions.
You bridge the back-end/front-end knowledge gaps for your colleagues, seeing the full picture.
You deliver your work in small iterations, often soliciting feedback from colleagues, spontaneously and through code reviews.
#### What do we expect from you?
As our Full-Stack Engineer with a front or back-end focus:
You have multiple years of experience developing in Ruby on Rails or React and have at least played around with the other, or very similar. Experience with Elixir is a plus.
You know how to implement a modern user interface.
You know how to implement a sound API.
You’re a firm believer in well-tested and peer-reviewed code.
You take initiative and like to be challenged.
The ability to relocate to Brussels is a plus, but not a requirement.
Eagerness to learn, talent, and enthusiasm are more important than ticking the boxes. Even if not all desired requirements are met, but you're very excited about the role, we want to hear from you.
#### What can you expect from us?
Unlock your full potential and have a social impact at scale. We're daily working with +230 governments to connect them to their citizens.
Become a key factor in our rapid transition from startup to a scaleup (50 employees).
Work in a fast-paced, collaborative and supportive environment. We share a participatory culture of autonomy and ownership by everyone, not only by the leadership.
Be part of our dynamic, international team. We organize many team activities and afterworks (when possible). We are as serious about our work in digital democracy, as about having fun on our journey together.
Informal work vibe with open communication and full transparency on results.
Participate in inspiring team lunches, our company book club, bi-quarterly strategic town halls, bi-yearly off-site team retreats.
Work 10% of your time on personal projects and self-development for the long run. We’re growing fast together, both collectively and individually.
Receive a competitive salary package, incl. perks such as 26 paid holidays, training budget, well-being budget, collective bonus plan, your own laptop, full flexibility on working from home, and much more.
CitizenLab is committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace. We encourage applicants of different backgrounds, cultures, genders, experiences, abilities and perspectives to apply.
