Sounds exaggerated? We are strong advocates of self-interest. What gives you pleasure somehow becomes good!๐Ÿคฉ
  • You are a team player who enjoys working with and helping other developers and QA. We speak openly, and therefore you don’t take well-intentioned critical feedback personally!๐Ÿ™

  • Familiar with JavaScript (vanilla JS, jQuery etc.).

What Youโ€™d Become Part Of

  • Each of us has the chance to develop, grow and contribute their own skills and strengths.

You will be hired as a working student to work up to 20 hours per week, being paid with 16 EUR per hour. The schedule can be flexible, according to your timetable.
