Principal Full Stack Engineer
The software needs of a large group of real estate portals such as ours are various and demanding. The portals themselves, with high requirements on UX, performance and reliability must be based on technologies focused on high availability, high traffic and generally best-in-class. For our B2B products and internal or assistive tooling for SEO, SEM, CMS or CRM we lean towards stacks that are extremely flexible and adaptable for rapid turnaround.
The role of the Principal Engineer is to enable the team to make the right choices in terms of solutions and technology as well as keeping an eye on the implementation. Hard problems like systems integration, data integrity, optimisation and other aspects of software development where experience is vital will primarily fall under this role. Rapid prototyping of ideas also falls under the same role.
As a Principal Engineer you will be given little direction. Instead, we will make sure you have the right context with regard to the business objectives, the available resources and the limitations so you can make the right decisions about how we should approach each project.
Skills & Requirements
Experience and pragmatism
This role is for somebody who has been through many releases of web-related products built from the ground up.
What we expect is:
University Degree in CS, CE or closely related
At least 10 years of experience writing code professionally
A good understanding of all common data structures and ability to write complex algorithms
Ability to design complex software systems with multiple parts across multiple technologies
Excellent skills in optimising systems for speed, memory, storage or operating costs
Some degree of familiarity with modern web technologies and solution patterns including service providers for hosted services such as IAAS, PAAS or more specialised services (e.g. search, storage, db, caching, etc)
While knowing our stack is definitely an advantage, it is not by any means a disqualifying factor:
Other technologies and services: Universal Web Apps, Machine Learning, Celery, RabbitMQ, Redis, Heroku, AWS, Algolia, CDN’s
What is it like to work for us?
Here are some ideas we have that might help you figure that out:
Offering the best and expecting to get the same in return: we chose a location in the heart of the city so you can have access to a bunch of good restaurants, we let you choose your hardware to work on, we buy top-of-the-line chairs and standing desks, and will keep on trying to make the workplace better than our homes.
Autonomy: you will choose the tools you want to use and get to make all the technical decisions as long as they make sense (that's for the Chief Architect to decide)
Mastery: we will encourage and support you to learn as long as it takes so you can feel proud about your work (the nice side effect of this is having awesome products built by you)
