When presented with the task of writing a job ad for a full stack developer, we immediately started looking for musical references, of course, that could symbolise a “full stacker”. The first person who came to mind was Sting. A musical genius that knows how to play any instrument. Perfect symbol, right? But then we thought of the famous quote by Ozzy in regards to how bad things can get just being Ozzy.
“It could be worse, I could be Sting”.
Working at Skymill as a full stack developer, should of course not be considered being as bad as it gets. So we settled for Bob Log III instead. A one man band, in full control of every instrument that he uses and an all out awesome artist.
So if you feel that you are in control of every instrument, technology or language that you use, then you might just be the Bob Log III of Skymill. We are definitely not looking for any super humans! You don’t have to know every little detail of every single language out there, the most important thing is that you know your way around a few backend and a few frontend techniques, frameworks and languages.
What you will be doing:
Playing for Skymill as a genuine "full stacker" means that you will be working with both inhouse projects and with external clients projects. We expect you to be able to take lead on most of the projects that you are involved in and be able to read up on, fully understand and transform technical requirements into beautiful implementations using whatever tech stack you feel most comfortable with. Equally important is how and when you communicate with the people around you. You have to be an excellent communicator when walking your team and your clients through the entire development cycle, able to support them in whatever way they need. Most of all you have to let the passion you have for producing quality software shine through in your everyday work. You will be working alongside some of the most brilliant developers on the scene at the moment, so you have to be able to let them shine as brightly as you do.
As mentioned before, we assume that you know your way around at least one full tech stack, including frontend, backend and database-technology, and that you have:
Experience from working with software architecture
Experience from handling end to end software development cycles
Experience from working with automated testing
Experience from working with at least one of the bigger cloud service providers
An interest in working in a growing company
An interest in working in the start up sector
Excellent communications skills
Good to have
