That's why we believe in applying creative tech solutions as a means to interact with the user in a flawless manner. At WeTransfer, we work together making the user experience for millions of creative people, fast, reliable and efficient.

What you’ll be doing

You'll be responsible for the happiness of millions of users by implementing new features with your project team as well as ensuring our codebase stays nice and shiny. You will do this in a multidisciplinary team with passionate engineers and designers to deploy features to our users and the open source community.

impact the experience of millions of users around the world.

Who we are looking for?

Above all else we value open communication and good teamwork to achieve a shared vision. We are looking for someone who has a passion for making beautiful web experiences, it's highly skilled with HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and it's not afraid of tools and cool frameworks.

Even though we are heavy users of React and Redux libraries, we prefer to work with smart people that understand that tools are just tools, not the main goal, and can find the most suitable solution for any given problem. We also think that quality is a must, and we set the bar pretty high, but a pragmatic approach is desired to an over-engineered solution. Making our users happy is our best quality metric.

Some Ruby experience is desired as well. We don't build a wall around our APIs, so we expect that you dig into our backend systems and make the necessary changes to solve your problem. If you already have experience on other languages, but not Ruby, we will help you to learn. Because we all love Ruby.

Last but not least, with more than 40 million unique users a month, data drives our decisions. If you have experience with analytical tools, data collection, A/B tests, etc... you are more than welcome to share it with us.
