The team you join
With a team of ambitious developers AutoUncle has changed the game of how cars are bought and sold in 10 European countries, competing against some of the Internet's biggest companies. We’re really proud about how we’ve led the development of online transparency in the car market and grateful for the accelerated growth we continue to experience. Our results are a product of a strong team, great culture and a guiding principle of making it hassle-free to buy and sell cars.
Most people know AutoUncle for the consumer service (native apps and web) used by millions of consumers across Europe. But new colleagues tend to get very excited when they see the technological depth there is to AutoUncle’s platform (accurate car valuations, indexing and data processing of millions cars daily, pro dealership tools, automatic marketing platforms, automated billing and so much more).
When you join AutoUncle, you sign up for a journey of building one of Europe’s biggest consumer services. The company is financially strong and operating fast. We have few managers and expect new colleagues to get onboard willing to make a difference and grow themselves as part of the journey.
We believe the best results are produced in environments where people enjoy working. As you get started you’ll quickly appreciate that the company has a clear vision and a healthy, Danish work culture. We optimise for working smart and have a strong commitment to the type of workplace we want at AutoUncle.
In development we follow the Scrum regime as a way to stay agile and focus a lot on learning and feedback. We’ve been operating as a distributed team for years and have a healthy “virtual-first” approach to collaboration. You’ll get to learn people from different cultures, speak a lot of English and get a chance to visit our offices in Denmark (Aarhus), Germany and Romania
Our current stack runs on Ruby on Rails, Coffeescript, SASS, React.js, Bootstrap, PostgreSQL, Redis, Memcached, Sidekiq Enterprise, Dedicated servers + AWS.
We work using: Github, Slack, Gotomeeting, Trello, Honeybadger, Google Analytics, Semaphore(for automated testing) as well as a range of internally built monitoring and management systems.
You’re a talented backend developer with strong Ruby on Rails experience. We’re not picky about academic background, but expect that you have a well-trained analytical mindset and are capable of designing architectures yourself. You should be a fast learner and comfortable working independently with prior experience with remote work.
The position is open for remote work, but we expect you to be in a time zone within one hour of UTC+1. We also really care about spending time face-to-face, so we expect you to join us for company gatherings in Denmark four times every year (travel and accommodation paid by AutoUncle).
Your application should be directed to Co-founder, Jonas Bruun Nielsen and include a few paragraphs where you tell us a bit about yourself and what interests you about the position. Besides that we’re super curious to see what you’ve done before: code examples of work, interfaces you’ve built and perhaps responsibilities you have had in other projects. The more specific the better. If we sense there is a good match we’ll invite you to talk and perhaps visit our office in Aarhus.
