Front-End Developer (React, Backbone & Fully Remote)

#React #Backbone #Bootstrap

So far, we’ve built a helpful software product thats used by some of the most advanced Social Media Teams in Germany and Europe. Now we want to move forward and expand our dev team to make our software more scalable and to enrich it with a lot of great features that will help our customers to work better as a team. If you are looking for a job in an growing SaaS startup and you love to build software that’s easy to use, this could be it.

About SocialHub

We’re an internet startup located in Ingolstadt, Germany and our team of 20 has invented a software called SocialHub which companies like the Deutsche Bahn, Rossmann or Media-Saturn use to manage their Facebook and Twitter profiles. Now we’re expanding our team and are looking for people that help us pushing our software to the next level. Read more what our clients are saying.

Remote Work Is Possible

Working together face2face is great, but we discovered that the best way to attract great people to our team is to offer everybody the freedom to work from wherever they want. That's why we hire onsite in our office in Ingolstadt and remotely.

It's your choice.

Pick the place that works best for you as long as you can work within our core hours (10am to 4pm Europe/Berlin).

Things that you find interesting

  • SASS.
  • TDD/BDD.

What we have to offer

One thing is very important to us: that our dev team has fun at work and that they let future clients feel that. In return, our team is completely free and can choose where and when they work (one day on the office, the next from the home office or completely remotely).

We only employ full time staff in the dev team.

Sounds interesting?

Your application can be as short as you like it do be. It doesn’t have to be formal. We like to know what you have done so far, what you love to do and some links to projects you’ve done (e.g. GitHub link or similar).

Looking forward to get to know you!

Your SocialHub Team
