We’re hiring a full stack web developer to assure that our potential users have a delightful experience on our online store where they get to know us, check out products and manage their subscriptions. On top of that, you’ll solve challenges of our apps with 6 other developers. Either on the frontend (Electron, React, …) or backend (Java, Kotlin, Kubernetes, …) side, whatever fits you more.
Our online store is built with Woocommerce and it’s based on PHP, HTML, CSS, and JS. You should have solid experience and feel comfortable to work with all of those four. This is a crucial requirement for this position.
We at Timeular try to help people to have more time for the important things in their lives. More and more people are realizing that time results = money and therefore working fewer hours per week very focused on the right things is much more efficient than an 80-100 hour workweek with constant distractions. On top, this result focused approach comes with the huge advantage of having plenty of time to enjoy an exciting life outside of work.
As we live what we pray we will not ask you to work a crazy amount of hours. In fact, we try hard to protect your time. In return, we ask you to do your best job every day every 40 hour week. Sounds like a fair deal right?
We are a fully remote team consisting of 17 people working from 5 countries, are between 20 and 40 years old and are ~40% female. You can work from anywhere in the world, as long as you schedule your work day to have 4 hours or more overlap with Vienna time (CEST/UTC+1).
About you and this role
The main purpose of this role is to create a delightful experience on our online store and increase the performance thereof. However, this will not be your only responsibility, as you will be solving challenges with our other developers on our apps (timeular.com/download) as well. Either on the frontend or backend side, whatever fits you best.
Here are some examples of responsibilities you will have:
- Implement fully designed pages or parts in our webshop with minimalistic, reusable CSS and well-structured HTML
- Measure and improve the performance of our webshop to save time for our customers and increase the conversion rates
- Proactively suggest what to improve to improve the UX for our (potential) users
- Support our Growth team to find efficient solutions to run their experiments e.g. pricing tests, A/B testing, landing pages, signup-forms etc. and measure the results thereof
- Debug issues that customers report to our support and solve them in a quick and simple way
- Add new payment systems e.g. Paypal Express or Amazon Pay to our shop
- Work on our backend integrations or API’s or style and tweak the UI of our apps, whatever fits you best
As you can see there is a challenging variety of tasks, but we believe there are many people like us who love and need challenges and if so, combined with a solid knowledge to start from, can solve them all. If you feel you have solid experience with HTML, CSS, PHP, and JS and those examples don’t scare you, then don’t hesitate to apply. We will give you everything else you need during the hands-on onboarding period.
Something that would make you stand out (though it’s not a must-have) is to have already worked in Woocommerce and/or other eCommerce projects. Another thing would be to have good design skills too. If so, please make sure to share something about that in the application.
About you and our culture
As we work remotely, we communicate a lot in written form. To help you demonstrate the strong writing skills you’ll need for this role, we’ve made the first part of this application process a written task.
We believe that the most time efficient communication style, whether it’s client-facing or with your team members, is to be direct but respectful. We’re honest and transparent to each other and we support each other. So should you.
We work very independently and therefore have to be highly self-motivated. This doesn’t mean we don’t achieve things together and never talk to each other but you should be comfortable working remotely most of the time. Loneliness and de-motivation might hit you here and there, but we’re all been through this and have learned a few things.
We respect time because time is the most valuable thing we have: we show up, deliver and communicate in time. We respect everyone’s private time unless there is a real urgency.
We say no to distractions and focus on the important things. We seek a minimal path with the highest possible output. We single task our way along that path. We keep meetings efficient. Basically, we focus on focus.
About the pay and benefits
We’re still at the beginning of our journey and therefore can’t afford to pay huge salaries; however, we manage that with other benefits, which are mostly about helping you to live a healthy life outside of work.
The transparent salary for this role at hiring ranges between $52,000 and $98,000, depending on several factors like the country you’re in (taxes, living costs etc…) and your experience. After one year of working full-time at Timeular you can participate in the employee stock option pool.
The benefits we offer are:
- Work where, when and how you want as long as you have 4 hours overlap with Vienna time (CEST/UTC+1).
- 50 days of paid holidays (including national holidays) because we’ve learned that time off is the best source for great ideas.
- Three paid team retreats per year to spend an incredible time together discovering unique locations and amazing food. All costs covered.
How to apply
We don’t need resumes, we care about who you’re today and where do you want to go.
Our application process is pretty simple: we start with asking you a few questions in written form, you answer them the best you can, we read it and, if we like it, we jump on a call to get to know each other better. If that goes well, we do a test period so we both can verify our expectations and if we both agree, you’re in.
As we value good clear writing skills, take your time to send your application. When you see a question with Why, dig deep to find the real root-why before answering. We value if you answer with facts and numbers.
When we ask for example tasks, write your reply like you would think aloud: imagine you’re doing the task and walk us through your thinking.
Make your time count with us
If you made it this far, then we assume you’re interested and are likely a good fit. If so, please apply here as soon as you have enough time and energy to craft your best answers.
As we always get many applications it might take up to 14 days till we get back to you. In case you have questions you can reach us here.
