Whitespectre is a technology consultancy that develops high-performing platforms and applications for our client partners.  We work with both high-growth start-ups and large established companies looking to launch new products. Founded in 2015, we’re a team of 70 smart and diverse architects, engineers, product managers, and designers from across the globe, working together remotely- and we’re growing!

You'll be:

  • Solving hard business logic with elegant software design to make code modular and maintainable for the future.
  • Designing new architectures and justifying your design decisions to other team members.
  • Understanding how code translates to DB queries and know how to optimize
  • Identifying bottlenecks, using tools to diagnose and refactor code for scale
  • Ensuring the robustness, performance and failure characteristics of the system.
  • Writing well tested (rspec), defect-free code with CI/CD
  • Taking ownership of production applications - managing issues, releases and ensuring quality

You must have...

  • Have worked in teams where you contributed towards technical decision making
  • A minimum of 5 years of experience in software development
  • Proven experience using Agile Methodologies in a remote team
  • Availability to work full-time within a fast-moving cross-functional team, working 11 am - 8 pm Central European Team

What do we offer?

  • 100% Remote team: Work as part of a talented, globally distributed, successful team with over 8 years of remote experience.  
  • Interesting challenges: We’ve done everything from scaling high-performance applications, building beautiful (but complex) user interfaces to low-level bluetooth communication with hardware devices.
  • Impact: Our delivery teams are fast-moving, highly collaborative, and own products end to end- your thinking and contribution make a big impact!
  • Great environment: We provide a great working atmosphere where you can share and learn with other smart people. 
  • Career progression: We want you to grow with us and provide the opportunities, knowledge sharing and mentorship to do that. 
  • The best-in-class toolsets: Slack, CI/CD with Docker etc
  • Work-life balance: love your work, but know that it doesn’t take over your life.
  • Paid Meetups: Come meet with your colleagues in Barcelona or at a local meetup. 
  • Competitive rates: This is a contract position with a long-term outlook (12 months+ full-time projects) for the right candidate.

The candidate must live outside of the US. Please no recruitment agencies.

Why is it good to work with us?

Because we work on great projects. Sure, we can list the latest set of technologies that we use, but that is a given. Everyone does that right? What's more interesting is how they are used - the design, the architecture, the approach to solving business problems, and helping businesses to grow. And we do that across multiple clients - each and everyone we're excited to work with.

Because we believe in constant learning and exploring - whether that’s a new skill, a new role, or a new way of seeing.  And because we've found that we learn the most when we take on new challenges as a team. We’re proud that people love working with us (and still have lives outside of work). Want to know more? Check out www.whitespectre.com and we're proud of what people are saying about us on Glassdoor
