Junior Software Developer

Published on 11.11.2019

Zadaa is the world’s first marketplace that has made selling and buying secondhand fashion as simple as in an online store. Sellers just sell, ship and get paid. Buyers just buy, receive and wear it. The company’s unique technology solves three of the main issues any marketplace confronts: logistics, matching and engagement. Since our launch in 2016 we have grown our network to more than 400.000 users and having over a million items for sale in the app. Zadaa operates in three different markets with 11 employees: Germany, Finland and Denmark, with offices located in Helsinki and Berlin. Zadaa has solid financial backing from top European investors.

We are a fun bunch to work with and passionate about changing the whole industry! We think and execute fast and want to make Zadaa into a truly global company with the next market entries being Austria, Switzerland, France, the Netherlands and Sweden. Read more about Zadaa here.

To support our growth, we are looking for a Junior Software Developer to join our product development team of three experienced developers. In this role, you develop mainly the backend of our product. However, your tasks can be modified according to your background and skills.

We have several new features on the roadmap, which you’ll get to implement, ranging from payment methods to offering users with more advanced search tools. You will also maintain the existing architecture and codebase. In addition, you will get to work with microservice development as we are renewing the architecture of our solution. As the team is small, you have a chance to be involved in all stages of software development and broaden your skillset as you go. Currently, we are working mainly with the following technologies: AWS, Node, TypeScript, Elixir, Ruby on Rails, and PostgreSQL. However, we don’t expect you to master all of them – more important is your willingness to learn! In the beginning, you will be paired with a senior developer and work on projects together. You will get more freedom and responsibilities as your expertise grows.

You are eager to learn new things and quick at putting them into practice. You are an active team player and not afraid of expressing your ideas and thoughts. We don’t require experience in any specific programming language. Instead, we consider as a big plus if you have some understanding of databases, as the app is used by a large number of users daily. Therefore, it’s and advantage if you know how to scale up fast-growing applications as well as if you have basic understand how to build and operate cloud services.

What we offer:

  • Good opportunities for professional growth based on your interests and skills. You are not alone – you will get to work with experienced developers
  • Full ownership of developing new features, meaning your mission is to bring new talent and work together with the team towards common goals
  • Be part of a small, committed and passionate team where everyone’s input and opinions really count
  • An opportunity to experience and build a rapidly growing product for global markets while solving the unseen challenges that come along with constant scaling
  • A nice office in Helsinki city Center
  • A competitive salary and possibilities for options

We are looking for:

  • Work experience in software development (e.g. from summer jobs or internships)
  • Fluency in English

We consider as an advantage (but don’t require):

  • Hobby projects to showcase your programming skills
  • Understanding of AWS (or other cloud platforms), REST application design, server architecture, SQL databases and scaling fast growing applications
  • Shipping web, iOS and/or Android mobile applications
  • Experience with one or more of our current technologies
