Hi there friend!
If you like traditional and boring job ads, written the same way, with no specific details, calling you cheesy things like Rockstar or Genius you can stop reading now.
But… If you need something refreshing, take your career seriously but still have a sense of humor, if you are looking for some employer transparency and a fair salary, maybe what’s written below will have you wanting to know us better.
Who are you?
You are a developer instead of a guru, scientist or ninja. A hands-on person who loves solving problems with clean and beautiful solutions, but who understands when it’s time to let go because it has to be delivered or shipped.
Are you kinda what’s written above? Nice! Maybe this is the right position for you. Go on.
Who are we?
We are a group of folks who love technologies. Some are programmers, others work on customer support. There are also these guys who spend their lives recruiting, and some others do the possible (and the impossible) to assure everyone’s having the time of their lives. We develop products, and we provide services.
What is this Job ad for?
We are currently looking forward to hire a smart and enthusiastic NodeJS Developer, to take our client’s projects to a whole new level. You’ll work in projects for top tech companies all over the world, in the most exciting and innovating projects.
This Job ad is made by our Staffing unit (which is different from Outsourcing, but that’s a huge discussion and we can approach that during the interview), which means that we are looking for talented people to work in our partners’ projects, but will be hired by us. As a matter of fact, that’s the case with more than 75% of the job ads that you’ll find, but no one will tell you this straight away... :)
So, sounds good? Ok! Keep reading.
