Who are you?

We believe that you need to be purpose-driven and have the motivation to focus on technology as a tool to reach our vision. While we believe that tools are important, especially that you have some kind of experience with JavaScript, more than anything we think we can get passed any toolbox issues if you're motivated enough and can prove your problem-solving skills.

We also like you to fit into our company in terms of our core values:

  • Creativity and curiosity. As motivation. 
  • Humility and feedback. For personal growth.

We don't care if your previous experience is through a university degree, open-source projects or as a software developer at any company. We mainly care about your dedication and the level of skill you present. 


Some intro here is needed.

Most of our tech stack is concerning our user-faced web platform. The main language is JavaScript, with React as our standard frontend client and Node for backend. We love GraphQL and everything from the Apollo toolbox. In terms of databases we enjoy Postgres, and we use GCP and Github for infrastructure/CI/CD and versioning. Our product management tool is Asana, which we're all very pleased with and dedicated to. For communication we mainly use Slack, integrating with other relevant tools such as Google's suite of Drive, Mail and Calendar, but also many bots for different purposes.

If you have experience from any of these tools, it's beneficial. If you enjoy working with JavaScript, we think you will enjoy your time at Skira.
