We are a fast growing startup, building an awesome product. We are looking for senior front-end developers to help shape and take part in the process.
Conferize is on a mission to enable anyone to gather a community, share knowledge and create change. So we’re building a universal and social event solution to help event makers create the biggest impact. Without fuss or big budgets. Why? Because we need to meet.
How We Work
At Conferize we strive to cultivate a multicultural environment where work, socializing and personal development go hand in hand. We invest in people who are driven and motivated and believe in changing the status quo. We love creative thinkers and self starters, who never wait to be told what to do.
We believe in a flat bottom-up organization of work where culture trumps policy. We have little-to-no 'middle layer', as our team work semi-autonomously and leadership is semi-internalized. We're 100% product-driven, operating with a zero bug policy and exceptional product design; how things look, how they work and how they're built.
Like us you’re ambitious and professional, yet nice to be around. You have excellent standards for how you communicate and collaborate. We'll give you everything you need to do your absolute best, most creative and challenging work – with the least amount of frustration. Oh, and we never outsource development and we don't work with arbitrary deadlines, because we believe both lead to bad solutions.
Our main office is in Copenhagen and we work with flexible hours. Working remotely is an option if you’re in no more than 1 hour from our main time zone (Central European Time).
We believe in fewer great people than many average and invest in people who are self-driven. We have a zero-bug policy and actively try to avoid technical debt.
- Excellent English communication skills.
- Have a team mentality. We help each other thrive in order to help our customers make great events.
- High degree of motivation and engagement.
- Collaborative, upfront, positive attitude.
- Effective, responsible and self-driven team players.
- Pragmatic but with a high attention to detail.
- You see and understand the mechanisms and hidden details which make a digital product unique.
- You’ve been part of a product driven organisation and have hands-on UX and design experience developing professional digital products.
- You are located in Copenhagen or within maximum 1 hour timezone difference.
- All positions are full time (37 hours pr. week).
We’re obviously hunting for someone who understands why creating digital products is the best drug in the world.
Special Requirements for Remote Workers
- You must have high speed Internet and a quality video camera (720p+) and a good microphone for Google Hangouts.
- You must be able to travel to Copenhagen, Denmark (at our expense) team building get-togethers.

- Real participation and team work. You are not getting a list of stuff to do; you are part of the process of both deciding and doing. Your opinion is valued.
- Competitive salary/equity.
