Intro

In this role, you'll work with a small cross-functional team to build tools that help hundreds of thousands of small businesses thrive. By shipping code, you'll see the impact of your work on merchant's daily lives right away. You'll collaborate with experts in product, design, and operations to deliver mission-critical internal and external features that power the SumUp ecosystem.

We work on a number of different projects that span technologies, systems, and processes. A few of the technologies we're leveraging on the web at SumUp include React, Webpack, Jest, Enzyme, Storybook, Next.js, Gatsby, Emotion, Node, and Docker.

Your tasks

  • Work with a cross-functional team to ship code multiple times per week.
  • Contribute to our React component library and build new features in our merchant-facing single-page application.
  • Collaborate with product and design departments to build maintainable, usable, and beautiful features.
  • Share your knowledge with other developers through pair programming and receive mentorship in return.
  • Take initiative in pushing projects forward, while validating and communicating your ideas with the team.
  • Help us continue to develop our open-source projects and culture.

Main requirements

  • 2+ years prior professional experience
  • Expert knowledge of HTML, CSS, and experience with React
  • Solid understanding of Javascript
  • Experience building a non-trivial Single Page Application (SPA)
  • Linux basics (git, ssh, editing a file on a remote server, etc.)
  • Experience with data / content modeling and thinking in a reusable, component-oriented way
  • Experience implementing accessible and responsive designs according to pixel-precise design specs
  • Ability to communicate fluently about technical topics in English.

Perks

  • Budget for attending conferences and advancing your career. We encourage you to speak at conferences and give talks!
  • Weekly Lunch and Learn session, where the local engineering team exchanges ideas over company-sponsored lunch.
  • Dedicated time every week for side-projects and open source initiatives.
  • Semi-annual off-sites, where the tech teams from Berlin, Sofia, and São Paulo gather together. In the past we've gone to Bulgaria and Greece and a castle in the German countryside.
  • We have a close, welcoming and international community. We get together regularly for brunches, cocktail nights, football, office parties, German classes, and yoga.
  • All the startup swag you expect: kicker table, unlimited coffee, and a shiny MacBook Pro.
