We're looking for a Full Stack Developer

Alex 17 Aug 2021 We're looking for a Full Stack Developer
Update 28-09: This vacancy has been filled up, we hired someone awesome 💚 Still interested in building a vegan and sustainable world with us? We always appreciate open applications via info@slygad.com. Although our team is currently rounded out nicely, we will probably be needing more superstars in the future.

 

Shop Like You Give a Damn is growing fast and we have more plans than we can manage and execute with our two developers Alex and Tim. That's why we are looking for a junior or medior developer to work on our custom website and back-end system with us!

Who are we?

Shop Like You Give a Damn is the largest 100% vegan, fair and sustainable online department store in Europe. Our marketplace offers a collection of ethical clothing, bags, shoes, accessories, homeware, makeup and care products for essentially everyone, from hundreds of ethical brands and sellers.

Shop Like You Give a Damn was founded by Stephan, Kim and Alex: three enthusiasts who with their vegan startup team, great plans and a healthy dose of impatience, are on a mission to turn the shopping world upside down. We say: shop with compassion. As little as possible. But when you do buy something, make it a vegan, fair and sustainable purchase. That is kind to all beings on earth. Kind to our fellow animals, to our fellow people, to all future generations.

Our mission is to make compassion and sustainability the new normal, by making ethical and mindful shopping really easy for everyone. That’s why we founded the largest online vegan department store for fair and sustainable products in Europe. For those who give a damn.

What are you going to do?

We are looking for a junior/medior developer to work on our custom website and back-end system. Here's the knowledge and experience you'll need to have:

Required knowledge

You need to have proven skills in web development:

  • HTML/CSS
  • Javascript
  • C# or related server side technologies (like PHP or Java)
  • Some database experience (Sql and/or NoSql)
  • Responsive websites

Preferred knowledge / experience

You will use these technologies, but they can easily be learned on the job:

  • Svelte / Svelte kit (or react) 
  • Fetch Api
  • TailwindCss (or Bootstrap)
  • Service workers / PWA
  • IndexedDb / DexieJs
  • Version control / git  (working with Pull Requests)
  • 'Serverless' platforms (Netflify/Vercel/Begin/Cloudflare)
  • Javascript tooling developing plugins for / Vite / Rollup 
  • Knowledge of building simple compilers
  • Web payments (Mollie/Adyen/Stripe etc.)

Nice to have

Our backend team works with these:

  • SqlServer

You probably won't work with the following technologies, but knowledge of them can be beneficial:

  • Firestore / Firebase
  • MongoDB / CouchDB 
  • Elastic search

And who are you?

We think that the following set of traits, interests and experience will be the best match:

  • You share our mission of making compassion and sustainability the new normal. You are (on your way to becoming) a vegan and have a passion for a vegan, fair & sustainable lifestyle.
  • You are pragmatic, creative and open-minded.
  • You have an academic mind.

  • You live in or nearby Amsterdam or are okay with remote working from somewhere else in the world.
  • You cannot wait to roll up your sleeves and deploy your epic programming skills!

What do we offer?

  • Be responsible for the tech behind a global marketplace that has an ethical compass and sails a commercial course.
  • The opportunity to make a real impact WITH and IN our startup and determine its future course with us.
  • Collaborate with an enthusiastic and incredible team of mission-aligned people.
  • Working in our Amsterdam West office right across from Westergasfabriekterrein (and awefully close to vegan hotspot Koffie ende Koeck), but also flexible working wherever and whenever you want.
  • A wonderfully relaxed and fun startup culture where you won't be afraid to ask and discuss anything.
  • Vegan treats whenever we have (some/no)thing to celebrate.
  • Table tennis battles with your teammates.
  • A suitable startup salary with Stock Appreciation Rights (SARs).
