Insights from the top
To be a fit for this position you need to:
You love to be challenged. You respect processes but it’s also why you don’t like corporate structure. You want to be a part of a start-up that is nimble but stable, innovative but not too risky, you want to be able to contribute and not just follow the standards and copy what everyone else is doing.
You love great UX. After all we are Visme: A visual design tool, so clean and aesthetic design and user experience is imperative to Visme. Although you spend most of your time coding, you also have an eye for great design and a feel for great UX. Beautiful UI helps weave your code into an impeccable experience for the user. In short, you care about more than just the code but the entire product and process.
You want to help others. You want to share your knowledge with the rest of your team, building shared tooling for other engineers, and even directly helping customers when the need arises.
You can balance lots of concerns. Visme is a SPA, as with any Frontend apps you have to take into account performance (using networks and devices that we can’t control), customer demands, UX research, A/B tests, code quality, our rapidly changing ecosystem of modules, etc.. You are able to effectively manage your time. You can balance those demands without getting overwhelmed and keep the needle moving forward. At the end of the day, we also ship products too.
