Job Description

You can work remotely from anywhere within Hungary. Your future Manager (this guy) is working from home entirely since 2014, so you can do the same, but in case you do need some face-to-face quality time with some fellow teammates, we do have offices in Budapest and Szeged, where you are always more than welcome. Check out some photos of the Budapest office here.  

Some projects this team has recently been working on: 

  • We are helping a client to discover how their next-generation mobile phone will break (or not break) if thrown onto a granite slab. 

  • Another one of our clients is actively fighting to eradicate the poliovirus in Afghanistan and Pakistan. We’re helping them track the virus by creating additional features into their dashboards.  

  • We have also helped another client to use their global COVID-19 related dashboards appear politically correctly. Due to some current border disputes, these borders are now appearing differently depending on the country you open the dashboard from (until the dispute gets resolved of course)  

  • Okay, we have less world-changing but still exciting projects as well. We are helping one of our clients (providing CFO services to startups) communicate financial data to their clients in a more live and interactive way (instead of a monthly-once report, building a site with live communication and information sharing)  

What an average day will look like for you: 

  • In the mornings and early afternoons, we mostly work among ourselves. The majority of your time will be spent with coding, either alone or together with close team members in pair-programming. 

  • From time to time (not too often), in the later afternoons (around 3pm – 5 pm), you might get involved in some meetings with clients, mostly you would be working with our US-based clients. 


We’d like to hear from you if: 

  • You have minimum 3+ years (mid level) or 5+ years (senior level) of experience as a Software Developer or Software Engineer using different type of technologies throughout your career: both Frontend and Backend – such as Angular, React, Python, Go, Javascript – not necessarily all, but rather a combination of a few of them (Some of us also love Rust but are still waiting for the chance to use it in production).

  • You get excited if you get to learn a new technology, and you don’t necessarily want to stick to a single one throughout your whole life. Sometimes, when we work on a project for a client, the technology we end up using might differ from what you have experience in. Then, you get to learn and discover it, and at the end of the project, you may say goodbye to it (or you may not). You will be very happy here if you’re a type of person who sees this as an exciting opportunity to widen your knowledge.   

  • You want to understand the context and the background of what you do. We don’t ever just “code HTML for food”  – and we expect the same attitude from you. 

  • You enjoy being involved in the early stages such as architecture planning, design decisions, setting up CI or figuring out the best Jira workflow (actually the simpler the better); and you also like being responsible for not only coding but the quality of your work as well (we don’t have any QA Engineers in the whole company). 

  • You can't stand people who end the conversation with “Well, it worked on my computer”.
