Job Description

We’re looking for a true tech junkie to help us build the foundation of our tech team in Ho Chi Minh City / Saigon. You will be at the center of the action and will need to contribute to all areas of the business, all while building, nurturing and caring for a world class team of developers. This probably calls for a bullet list. This is what we need you to do:

  • Recruit and onboard a world class tech team. 
  • Contribute to our strategy and goals. 
  • Lead daily standups, prio sessions and retrospectives. 
  • Put your crunch hat on and write beautiful code. 
  • Contribute to the tech evolution and implementation. 
  • Work on process improvements. 
  • Suggest new features and improvements. 
  • Lead the bug hunt. 
  • Keep your team on track, on toes and happy. 
  • And last but not least, be part of building the best football game on the freaking planet!

Qualifications

Your skills

You're a developer at heart, but we also care a lot about your personality, entrepreneurial spirit and team leading skills. We’re developing in Swift and Kotlin. Our backend is built in Java with MongoDB and MySQL as best buddies, so you need to be familiar with all of these, and an expert in one or two.

  • So, in dev terms, you need to be an expert in: Kotlin OR Swift AND Java.
  • You need to be experienced in Prioritization AND Estimation AND Kanban AND Scrum.
  • You need to be experienced in the Recruitment of native developers
  • You need to speak and write fluent Vietnamese AND good English.

Your personality

You’re that person that everyone else knows will just solve it. You’ve probably been misused a lot because of this. Maybe you’re tired of working in an organization that doesn’t seem to want to improve. Which is also something that drives you crazy. Well, here’s your chance to prove that you can do it better. You firmly believe in doing the right thing. You’re a systems thinker that can zoom out to see the big picture, as well as zoom in to find problems and track down root causes. You’re a firm believer in causality and while others seem to struggle with it; being pragmatic, efficient, strategic and analytical just comes natural to you.

You hate bullshit, you treat the latest fads with caution and need more data and insights before jumping on one. You’re able to be direct when needed, to give both praise and constructive criticism. Oh and you love a good laugh. Being a pragmatic analyst, you’re probably undecided whether Scrum or Agile is all that good. Maybe you prefer copying what makes sense and leave the rituals to the fanatics.

You’ve been managing teams before. Teams that today also speak well about you. You believe that a healthy culture and happy teams are essential for building a good product. You take a keen interest in user experience as well as the business side of the technology you craft. Are we looking for a unicorn? Maybe. We view it like our next big recruitment and the hunt to find a fellow entrepreneur that wants to build this company and product with us. To do so, you have to be pretty darn good.
