Overview

Visly is creating a visual UI development tool. By making a space where UI can be developed visually, rather than by writing code, we aim to make product development more efficient, fun, and accessible to everyone (and particularly for designers). We hope you’ll join us in that mission!

We’re looking for a front-end developer to join our small and talented team and help build new product features. Reach out to Emil Sjölander (CEO) at careers@visly.app

Why Visly?

As a small team, we work in a highly collaborative environment and support flexible working patterns. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in every part of the business from idea to production and set your own schedule while doing it. If you join us, you’ll be able to:

  • Help shape our engineering practices, team, and company culture;
  • Help define the direction of our product and strategy;
  • Practice your craft in a fast-paced environment;
  • Build tools for developers just like yourself;
  • Work with and learn from very experienced designers and engineers; and
  • Work remotely with a time schedule that suits you.

What you’ll be doing

We’re looking for front-end developers who enjoy working alongside both junior and experienced engineers and designers to build and iterate on UI/UX/features quickly. Your responsibilities would include:

  • Building the core, user-facing product. You’ll work on core parts of the product. Visly is still in its very early days, so you’ll be working on adding new features to the experience.
  • Using modern web tech. You will work with React (functional components, hooks), TypeScript, Electron, and of course, Visly, to build a best-in-class frontend that scales.
  • Develop and fine tune complex interfaces. You’ll be working with the product and design team to implement new designs and product. You’ll build a tool that improves your own day-to-day life and that users love.
  • Improving performance by profiling and optimising rendering. You’ll make every interaction feel snappy, working alongside like-minded engineers who sweat the details to make sure every render runs at 60 FPS.
  • Solving interesting technical problems. Bring your full creativity to solve hard technical and UX problems. Ranging from third-party integrations, state management, theming, animation, and accessibility.

Your qualifications

We expect you to have experience working with some of the technologies we use, mainly React, but don’t have requirements for formal qualifications. We’re looking for people who enjoy picking up challenges, can figure out the best way to solve them quickly, and who will always strive to make the product better for our users. We’d like to hear from you if you are:

  • Highly productive while producing quality code. You enjoy pushing out UI components and features in a pragmatic and maintainable way. You know when to deploy a quick fix, when not to, and when to spend extra time writing tests.
  • Curious and quick learning. We don’t expect you to have experience in every technology we use, but to learn and be productive quickly.
  • Design-minded. While you’ll co-craft the interface with top designers, we expect you to have a sense for great UX, such that you feel if something is off and can flag it, or better yet, polish it.
  • Kind and caring. We pride ourselves in being friendly and inclusive. We expect the same from you.

Compensation & Benefits

We’ll treat you well. If there are any other benefits that are important to you, we’d like to hear.

  • Competitive salary and equity — scalable based on your desire for ownership.
  • Paid time off — 4 weeks’ paid vacation and generous sick & parental leave policies.
  • Fully-distributed culture — live and work where you’d like (EU time zones).
  • Quarterly off-sites — or COVID-safe alternatives.
  • Co-working space — company-paid co-working desk in your local community.
  • Hardware setup — new MacBook Pro, display, and accessories.

Our interview process

Our interview process is remote and normally consists of 3 stages. During the process, you’ll be able to meet multiple members of our team and discuss what their experience working at Visly has been like. Ask anything you’d like – we believe you should have the opportunity to interview us too! The interview process typically progresses in these stages:

  1. A 30 minute intro call with Emil Sjölander (CEO), the goal of which is for both parties to get to know a bit about one another and introduce you to Visly and the role. Expect a few technical questions as well; then
  2. A take-home assignment (should not take more than 8 hours to complete). After sending this to you, we’ll schedule an hour long follow-up call with a member of the team to discuss your solution. Think of this conversation as an extended code/design review; and finally
  3. An hour-long interview with Emil, where we’ll be looking to go into more detail on previous experiences, expectations for the role, career goals, and the like. You can think of this as an extension to the first introduction call, and this is the last step before an offer would be made.
