**About GitDuck**\n\nGitDuck is a code and screen sharing tool for developers. We allow them to create videos linked to their codebase so they can easily explain their code to their teammates.\n\nWe started building GitDuck after working some months remotely and struggled to keep learning from each other as when we were side-by-side in the same office. We are solving that. We are building GitDuck to help developers and teams to easily exchange what they know so they can better learn from each other.\n\n**The Role**\nWe're looking for independent engineers who enjoy building things and are comfortable with significant responsibilities. You'll work on a variety of projects and problems and own large parts of the codebase.\n\nAs one of the first hires, you'll be crucial for scaling the company including its architecture, testing, monitoring, codebase, best practices, culture, etc.\n\nGitDuck is mainly built with JavaScript and some TypeScript. Node on the backend and Next.js+React on the frontend. Our systems are hosted in Google Cloud using Kubernetes.\n\n# Responsibilities\n - You will build and maintain user-facing features.\n- You will develop real-time collaboration features.\n- You will contribute and maintain our open-source IDE extensions.\n- You will design, develop and maintain our infrastructure.\n- Troubleshoot and debug applications.\n- Write unit and integration tests for your code.\n- You will interview and coach other talented engineers. \n\n# Requirements\n- Strong experience as a Software Engineer, writing clean, testable and maintainable code.\n- Experience designing and developing REST APIs.\n- Good knowledge of JavaScript.\n- Experience with GCP/AWS, Kubernetes or cloud-native environments.\n- Willingness to solve challenging problems.\n- Ability to readily learn most technologies on-the-go.\n- Ability to thrive in an ambiguous environment with a high degree of autonomy.\n- Verbal and written English fluency.\n\n**Bonus points:**\n- Experience with video related products or video streaming infrastructure.\n- Experience with React.\n- Experience using MongoDB.\n- Experience using WebRTC.\n- WebSockets/Socket.io or real-time systems experience.\n- Experience with FFmpeg.\n- Experience with distributed systems.\n- Published blog posts and/or tech talks about your work. \n\n#Salary\n$50,000\n \n\n#Location\n- 🇪🇺EU-only

Live video call: 75 minutes technical interview composed of 3 phases:\n - 15mins of short technical discussion to evaluate your knowledge in a wide range of technical topics like data structures, web systems, security, systems, etc. We do not expect anyone to be strong in all the areas. We're looking for which topics you know the most about, and your ability to communicate with another engineer in technical discussions.\n - 30 mins of fixing or extending an existing codebase. We'll give you a medium-sized codebase with a few bugs or failing test cases. We're looking for your ability to read and understand someone else's code, your troubleshooting, intuition and debugging skills.\n - 30 mins of system design interview. We'll describe a hypothetical product or service, we'll ask you to describe how you'd break that down into a system that you could actually build. We're looking for your ability to talk about the architecture of a project, understand how all the pieces fit together and your decisions and trade-off discussions.\n6. Final live video interview: 20 minutes for any pending questions you or us might have.\n\nWe're quite fast on our process, so you should be able to go through all phases in less than 2 weeks.

When applying for jobs, you should NEVER have to pay to apply. That is a scam! Posts that link to pages with "how to work online" are also scams. Don't use them or pay for them. Also always verify you're actually talking to the company in the job post and not an imposter. Scams in remote work are rampant, be careful! When clicking on the button to apply above, you will leave Remote OK and go to the job application page for that company outside this site.
