Spiffy | Berlin / Europe | Senior Go / Golang Developer(s) | madebyspiffy.com/jobs | REMOTE | PART-TIME

We're small startup building a whiteboxed dispatch system to sell initially to taxi firms, we are a distributed company and work 100% remotely, 95% of costs are wages, we have no VC funding and pay our own way via revenue. We offer a paid trial month. As for the product we've found "market-fit" and we're now iterating towards a robust scalable finish.

As a developer at spiffy you only work 20 hours a week, all we require is that you're around in the afternoon, there's no hierarchy & no management, we work in small vertical teams and you're expected to decide, design, implement, maintain & support. The wage (for everyone) is €3000 per month + VAT for now but you're employed as a consultant (less tax) and can take on other projects at the same time, not enough to live in London or Zurich but enough to live somewhere with a nice beach or even in Berlin (like me).

As for tooling, we use github, jenkins & slack and we're always constantly improving. There are no skype calls, no meetings of any kind, no standups, no performance reviews, just open and honest communication.

We are only looking for senior developers (3+ years) at this moment who can be around in the afternoons Central European Time

I personally would like to work with someone who employs TDD pragmatically and writes clean maintainable code. Who is widely read, possessing a depth of experience and able to bring ideas to the table. Experience building, operating & testing distributed systems would be a massive plus.

At the moment we've developed a microservice architecture on app engine and we'll be moving to containers in the near future. We don't expect you to have three years of Go experience but you need have something in Go/Golang to show us.

Just write a short cover letter detailing your past projects and what you'll bring but don't forget to indicate that you've read into what the company is about. Multi stage interviews are too resource consuming so if we like your application and you come across well in the interview then we'll invite you for a paid trial month.
