Fullstack Developer (Typescript, NodeJS)

 

mid/senior level  •  m/f/d  •  Berlin

 

Jolocom is looking for an experienced full-time Software Developer with strong programming skills, backed by a passion for application development, to build truly cutting-edge technology.

At Jolocom we are on a mission to put people, organizations, and machines in control of their data using decentralized identity management technology. We create software systems that resolve significant challenges in digital identity & access management while delivering person-first user experience. We maintain a calculated balance between pragmatism (shipping code), deeply informed protocol design, and strict application of robust engineering principles.

Crucially, we believe in a collaborative approach to creation: at Jolocom we share a definitive appreciation for the transformative power of open source. We’re an interdisciplinary team including colleagues with specialties in engineering, design, product, business and community engagement. All of this happens in the heart of Berlin, however we embrace remote.

If you already have a smile on your face, it may be time to pursue your passion at Jolocom.

 

At Jolocom you will:

  • lead application design efforts on top of the Jolocom-SDK and document your recommendations in a developer-friendly manner

  • contribute to the design and architecture of our products
  • actively take part in improving software quality and the SW release pipeline
  • you will get the chance to work across a number of Typescript repositories / projects:
    1. primarily applications on top of the Jolocom-SDK, where you will be involved in developing new features, as well as iterating on / improving existing ones, or building entirely from scratch
    2. additional repositories integrated with the Jolocom-SDK

  • build new (product) features from start to finish (from conception all the way through research, maintenance, and refinements)

  • care for the user experience (consumer[s] of our applications)

  • maintain documentation and test

  • engage in open source community collaboration

You may be a fit for this role if…

  • passion for decentralization and innovative technology

  • your portfolio includes relevant projects or related activities

  • you place high value in documentation and dissemination of information and are able to communicate effectively with third parties

  • you are familiar with application design/architecture (don’t be afraid 😉 we are reasonable)

  • you are familiar with larger Web3 stack

  • you are passionate and interested in software architecture and interoperability

  • you gravitate toward idiomatic, well-structured, readable, and testable code

  • you have persistent drive to make improvements and innovate, desire to have an impact by effectively managing conflicts and priorities, and by thinking creatively and solution-oriented

  • you are able to pick up Typescript if needed

  • you are fluent in English (German is a plus).

Extra points for:

  • familiarity with Self-Sovereign Identity concepts

What to expect from us:

  • a flat (horizontal) organization — we avoid top-down management

  • supportive, collaborative and friendly atmosphere

  • multi-product environment

  • realistic project estimation times

  • opportunities to come up with your own solutions for technical challenges around data flow, reactiveness and performance

  • an exciting cryptography-based product with incredible potential.
