Full-stack Agile Developer

To support our IT & Quality Assurance team we are searching as of now for a

Full-stack Agile Developer

As our new Full-stack Agile Developer you will need to have

• PASSION for tech; it’s something many companies speak about, but at Affinitas, we put those words into action! We were one of the earliest startups in Berlin from the ‘new wave’ of tech startups. In fact, we’re practically startup royalty - successful (and profitable) with fun plans for expansion.
• Affinitas brands are on the ‘serious dating’ side of the spectrum of dating platforms (an antidote to the casual hookup brands flooding the market). Elite Singles, eDarling, and Attractive World are our main brands aimed at professionals looking for love.
• So; want to make a difference in the lives of millions of singles? Are you interested in joining an ambitious and inclusive workplace? The tech teams are continually striving for the highest quality, quick-release solutions. We work in small, focussed, cross-functional teams using bits of Scrum, Kanban, and a smidge of Extreme Programming.
Our teams have Product Management, Devs, and UX all working together every day.

What Type of Developer is Affinitas Looking For?

• You will be an expert in building high availability, scalable applications using RESTful principles.

• We typically look for full stack people who feel comfortable writing tests, adding to a continuous deployment script, doing a little front-end, optimising a query on a database, or adding a new version of a service.

• We are looking for people who are proficient in teaching and leading by example, and mentoring both junior and senior engineers.

• Most of our applications are written in Java or Javascript, but as someone who is passionate about development, you’ll be open to picking up new languages and frameworks when the situation arises. Our developers decide the right tool for the job, so you should be very comfortable doing this too. We have a lot fun discussing the merits of different technology and we want you to join and lead these conversations.

• You care about test-driven, clean code, delightful user experiences and all the lovely stuff that's involved with automatically tested, continuously deployed applications.

• Let us be explicit; you will write your own tests. You also may be an expert on thinking critically about potential flaws, and are able to teach others on this subject. You have depth of experience, but are open to being more broad too. For example, our Java developers learn from the Javascript experts, and vice versa. Having a desire to expand and master something new means you're a good fit for us.

• As our company offers platforms all over the world and has lots of different nationalities, we made English our company language. Your English skills should be sufficient to have day to day conversations and read this job description.

What We Offer:

• Super smart, dynamic, international team members. Highly skilled people striving for results; professional but with a fantastic sense of humour.

• A competitive salary, great benefits and an excellent working environment.

• Berlin startup amenities, such as nice laptops, and great office facilities (fair warning though: don’t be too sad when we beat you at table tennis or kicker in the beginning, as we’ve been training a lot)

• An opportunity to build a platform which is used by millions in many, many countries that help people find their soul mate.
