\nChance is the digital coaching path to choose the job that will make you happy. \nChance thesis is simple: “Engagement at work is a necessary condition for performance at work, and performance at work is a necessary condition for social mobility. And engagement is a function of a person’s authentic sense of purpose aligning with rewarding work”.\n\nThe product enables a user to participate in a 3-month program during which they experience self-reflection, exploration through advanced autocoaching, and human coaching through video-coaching, in order to choose the work that aligns with their aspirations, skills and personal context.\n\nPioneer of the “PsyTech”, every step of the Chance program is adapted to each individual, thanks to real-time data and behavioral analysis. It designs an individualized program, driving the participant to make a series of informed decisions leading to a more fulfilling career path.\n\nThrough autocoaching, the talent is guided to reflect more deeply about the way they think: who they are, how to make choices, what has meaning, what does not. The talent will then be recommended different career paths that correspond to her aspirations, leading to a methodical exploration phase to make the final choice. Chance accompanies the talent until she actually reaches her new professional objective. Video-coaching sessions complete each step of the program: a professional coach, one-on-one tailor-made sessions, to help gently break down the psychological barriers that may exist and have been identified during the self-reflection phase.\n\nOur tech orientation\n\nBy the nature of Chance service, we develop a triple-sided marketplace infrastructure to drive the interactions of our Talents (customers), Coaches and internal Customer Success.\n\nThe solution is currently web-based, providing 3 applications and 2 main backends. We plan to start the move to native applications by the end of the year.\n\nDuring the last months, we have been validating our business model and the time to scale it has come. For that reason, we are looking for talented engineers able to come up with powerful abstractions to allow the product to support an increasing number of both features and users. \n\nwww.chance.co\n\nJob description\n\nAs a senior software engineer, your challenges will be broad in scope and will lay the foundations for a system that will provide cutting-edge digital experiences to hundreds of thousands of people all over the world.\n\nWe value ownership and adaptability. Nothing is someone else’s problem, we act as a team. For that, we made TypeScript our main language to ease the context switch. By the end of your onboarding, you will become owner of crucial pieces of the Chance software.\n\nWe value reliability and code quality a lot, we build dead simple and well tested services. This is a core value of our team. We always prefer to be investing a few more hours in reviews and testing rather than chasing bugs on production. We expect you to embrace and contribute to this mindset.\n\n\nAbout the team organization\n\nWe decided to structure our tech department around full-stack and backend profiles. Our FS engineers are frontend major, backend minor. You will be responsible to drive the main architectural decisions to provide the FS developers the best APIs and patterns for them to contribute efficiently.\n\nTo execute our work, we run a 2 weeks homemade framework inspired by SCRUM principles with some adaptations due to the particularity of our business: managing content production and software development.\n\nOn a daily basis, you will be working closely with our Product Managers to understand the business needs; with the Customer Success team to handle issues and provide solutions; with the engineers to ensure coherence and integration with other codebases.\n\n\nOur stack\n\nA multi-sided web platform based of the following technologies:\n\n\n* Frontend: Typescript, ReactJS, GraphQL, Styled-components, Storybook\n\n* Backend: Typescript, NodeJS/Express, PostgreSQL/TypeORM, GraphQL\n\n\n\n\nYour mission\n\nAs a senior software engineer, your challenges will be broad in scope and will lay the foundations for a system that will provide cutting-edge digital experiences to hundreds of thousands of people all over the world.\n\nWe value ownership and adaptability.

Don't get bored by owning small chunks of a codebase.\n\n* You are part of an environment that values weekly releases, code quality, guidelines, CI, testing. We ship aggressively, we test things, we iterate. Code is as important as how you write and ship it.\n\n* You are able to actively participate and challenge product decisions. Everybody is welcome to enrich the product to bring the biggest value to the users.
