Full-stack engineer (f/m/x) at a promising PropTech startup
We are currently looking for a full-time Full-stack engineer (f/m/x) that will join an ambitious start-up in Leuven (BE). This client is on a mission to keep buildings and spaces in a good, safe and clean condition by building a SaaS platform that allows to easily report, manage and fix problems within every space or building.
As a mature engineer, you will play an important role in realizing the client’s ambition by producing quality code and preparing the platform for growth. You will join a small team of internal and external engineers, with chances to grow along with the company towards a leading technical role. You can count on a strong co-founding team with solid experience in building successful companies.
Our client is open to remote working but it is a bonus if you could visit the Belgium office from time to time. When you work remotely, there should always be at least half a day overlap with the working hours in Belgium (GMT-4 and GMT+4).
What will you be doing
We are looking for a full-stack engineer, ideally with an extra focus on the front-end to complement the more back-end oriented colleagues.
You design the overall architecture of the web application.
You maintain the code quality and ensure the responsiveness of applications.
You collaborate with the rest of the team to design and launch new features.
You maintain the code integrity and organization.
You convert mockups and designs to visual elements.
You will be co-responsible for implementing security and data protection.
!! Don't hesitate to apply if you don't fulfil 100% of the requirements. Superheroes don't exist, people with passion and talent do.
You like working in a start-up environment and you have some affinity with cloud-based SaaS platforms.
You know where information can be found and actively search for it. You can think for yourself and challenge the information you find. You document everything and in such a way that everybody can understand what is happening and why.
You are a social person that loves to take initiative.
Although you can work independently and efficiently, you like to work in a team environment. Once a group decision is made, you act as a team member by following the architecture, processes and coding standards as agreed upon.
Willingness to learn: we value a continuous learning & growth mindset.
You have experience with PHP (Laravel framework).
You have a solid understanding of HTML5 and CSS3.
You write readable quality code and know how to write meaningful tests.
You are familiar with the SOLID principles and know how to apply design patterns where needed
You know CI/CD
You have worked with AWS in the past.
There is no need to be a polyglot, but English is the working language within the company so we expect a working proficiency. (The co-founders also speak Dutch, French and Spanish fluently so if you want to have fun and mix things up, you're more than welcome!)
If you have the ambition to lead a team in the future, show yourself, and the client would be more than happy to support you in your ambitions.
You can have meaningful discussions and insights about the product and UX/UI.
You have experience with mobile-first designing, Tailwind CSS and/or Vuetify.
