Our core values
We’re big on our company culture, and keen on hiring like-minded people. So it’s important you share our values:
- We put the needs of our players and community first
- We act with humility and treat others with respect
- We voice our opinions, but we’re open to new ideas
- We believe in taking ownership of ourselves and our work
- We recognise time is precious and not to be wasted
- We strive for excellence, but we’re not perfectionists
- We value a positive and flexible work life
We are a growing team of highly technical and experienced developers. Right now we are backend heavy with some full stack developers which means you’ll have a huge impact on the frontend decisions and the work being done. We all work remotely, 100% of the time. We’re currently spread out across Europe and the Americas.
As the lead frontend developer you will be responsible for modernizing our frontend stack, migrating parts of our systems to the new stack and help maintain and scale one of the most popular free to play poker sites in the world.
We have a huge array of interesting problems to solve such as planning for and implementing a new frontend strategy to support mobile clients, optimizing our React poker client, migrating our old Backbone site to a new tech stack and working to improve our SEO across the board.
We look for smart and independent people who work best in a team where everyone pulls their weight and collaborates with each other. Proactivity is key so we can improve and expand our systems without micromanagement. You will be given a lot of freedom as long as you can handle the responsibility that comes with it.
We are not afraid of using new technologies when we have to, but know that sometimes boring technology is the best solution. Using the best tools for the job is taken seriously and we expect everyone to be flexible enough to learn and use them. But also courageous enough to challenge old choices and champion change.
