Full-Stack Engineer (MEVN)

Experience: 4+ years • Salary: €25–35KLocation: Remote • Type: Full-time

We’re looking for an amazing JavaScript engineer. Amazing as in passionate, with good ideas, open-minded, a bit crazy, and willing to teach us how to be better at what we do—while, of course, helping build our product.

About us

Our founders, Marius and Vlad are serial entrepreneurs. They have worked and taught at MIT, Singularity University, Techstars, and Startup Chile, where they realized that fundraising for startups is broken, and still done the same as 20 years ago. That’s why, in 2019, they started Metabeta, a platform that enables startups and investors to make smarter investments using data, not only gut-feeling.

Today, we’re a 10-people distributed team (Romania, Chile, Turkey, and Pakistan). We have recently raised a seed round to build the leading investment marketplace in Europe—and that’s where you come in!

What we are looking for

We are looking for a builder and REST API fanatic. We have an API-first approach (write, test, and document the API before anything else), we work using a SCRUM Agile process not only for development but also for the business and design sprints.

  • You should be proficient and have experience in building with Node.js, Express, Vue.js, MongoDB on AWS Cloud.
  • Deep knowledge of JavaScript asynchronous design patterns and CPS are required, as well as understanding how to build scalable UI component systems. We are fanatics about structure, modularization, and generally non-dumb approaches (to avoid other fancy names).
  • We like our deployments to be fast and headache-free and we appreciate good CI/CD hands-on knowledge. Everything we do is shipped in containers and thus, you should have experience with Docker.
  • Machine learning and data science would be a really good thing for the future.
  • A good understanding of how the startup ecosystem works (fundraising and investing, mostly) is critical.
  • It goes beyond saying that you should be fluent in English, beyond knowing how to write code.

What we offer

Here’s what we don’t offer: fancy Xbox or Playstation games, team buildings, gym subscriptions, or all sorts of corporate perks.

And here’s the list of what we do:

  • A fair salary and share options. So you don’t have to worry about money and can focus on growing our company and learning.
  • A meaningful thing to work on. It’s a tough mission to change an industry that has not changed much, but we love the impossible.
  • A great team. We are no superheroes, but good people who share their knowledge but are also eager to learn from and with you.
  • Flexibility (schedule, location, approach) and a results-only work environment.
