DEV CARE (aka BOOST) EXPERIENCE AT HEETCH
The top priority of our developer-driven team is to improve the productivity of other developers in the company by spotting generic needs across teams and addressing them in the most impactful way. Whether this is done by introducing a new technology or designing a creative solution to a problem shared by multiple teams, it's done through carefully collected feedbacks, analysis and is delivered iteratively, following closely open-source methodologies. From the inside, we're a caring team of engineers who share the same set of values:
- Transparency: We discuss everything openly.
- Team Unity : No one is left behind.
- Move Fast : No need to demonstrate for days, just do it.
- Knowledge Sharing : Whether it's organizational, cultural or technical, we're eager to learn!
- It's OK to fail : Succeed together, learn together.
With the very broad spectrum of challenges we're facing every week, our team is seeking an experienced and pragmatic developer to build solutions that will help Heetch to scale to its next level. Our ideal candidate is someone who loves building software for other developers (shiny documentation included!), have strong problem-solving skills and having great empathy for others.
