Key Responsibilities and Tasks:
• As a member of our growing development team, your primary task will be to help the team make the best design and architectural decisions during the development of our strategic product, memoQ, and our new, cloud-based offering, memoQ Zen.
• While we add new features to our products, we started a multi-year project to refactor the underlying tech stack into a microservice architecture, which can serve our customers’ increasing need for scalability, performance and high-availability. This means that you’ll spend most of your time discussing design and architectural questions with the developers. This doesn’t rule out that you also participate in the implementation of some of them.
• You’ll also regularly discuss feature development with our product owners and help them translate vaguely defined problems into well-defined ones, then break them down into actual tasks, so that development can start.
• We also have an innovation lab, where we try out new ideas as well as new technology. We expect you to proactively look for interesting technology and make suggestions about those that are worth to experiment with.
• In our growing development team we are dedicated to give juniors opportunities to prove their talent. We expect seniors to take responsibility in their development and guide them through their first steps.
• Several years of experience in .NET.
• Several years of experience with microservices, scalable and HA systems, software security.
• Solid understanding of the theoretical minimum of computer sciences (data structures, algorithms, complexity, etc.).
• Experience in the translation industry is also an advantage.
• We’re looking for excellence. One of our values is to pursue excellence by continuous learning, and we also find it important to share what we learnt with each other. We also believe that one of the best sources of learning is our own mistakes, and we encourage our developers to consider them as such rather than blaming each other.
• In our approach to software development you’ll almost always have more questions than answers. We assume that you find this uncertainty inspiring rather than inhibiting, and it will even more motivate you to work out a working solution via a healthy mixture of individual work and collaboration, experiments and hard work, meanwhile you find this as exciting as we do.
• However, we also believe that the ultimate measure and goal of software development is working software created for real customers, and everybody must take their fair share of every aspect of the development lifecycle, many steps of which are sometimes inevitably boring or dirty work, until 100% completion. Presumably you also accept that this often involves dropping your favorite piece of code, idea, technology, etc. either for simplicity, or in favor of other solutions from other people. We assume that the satisfaction that in most cases collaboration produces better software outweighs personal proudness.
