Your personality and drive is what we are looking for  

For us, personality and passion come before education. We are looking for a developer to join our team and be part of building the world's most advanced career platform for impact organizations. We are a small but growing team making this a fantastic opportunity for you to be part of this journey while also growing in your role as a developer. Being part of Impactpool means that you are a key person contributing to the company's growth and the value we bring to our talents and impact organizations. 

Who we are

Impactpool is a SaaS-based career platform for organizations that works towards making a positive impact and contribute to sustainable development. For our B2B clients, we offer automated talent matching via AI and a recruitment system/ATS developed specifically for international recruitment. We also provide services for the talents working in this sector, enabling them to make the most out of their careers. We have a large and truly global user base with users from every country on the globe. The organizations we work with are Impact Startups, NGOs, UN organizations, and everything in between.

We have offices in Stockholm and Umeå. For this position, we would be happy to recruit to Umeå, but Stockholm or remote work, in European timezones, are also options for the right candidate. We are a diverse team both in terms of gender and nationalities. This is something we value and aim to continue being. Because of this, English is the official office language, so fluency in English is a must.

About the role

In this position, your working day will consist of working on new features, improve existing, hunting down and fixing bugs, and assisting the customer success team in finding answers to technical support inquiries. In this role, it's important to feel comfortable working in any of the parts of the stack, frontend as well as backend, writing database queries, doing server administration, or improving build configurations. While having efficiency, security and usability at the top of mind. For the right candidate, this will be an excellent opportunity to grow as a developer, both in terms of skills and continuously increased responsibilities.

Our focus is on building a fantastic product that brings value to our users and supports our business. We see that this is best accomplished by using proven technologies and reduced unnecessary complexity. The strategy we use to accomplish this is to build on classical web technologies, such as serving Html and CSS over the wire from a monolith application. This lets us focus on core business functionality instead of building and maintaining complex distributed infrastructure solutions. This, however, does not mean that we don't do cutting-edge things. Instead, we use existing and proven solutions to problems where they exist so that we can focus our creativity and sector expertise on building the innovative cutting edge solutions that our clients love and that sets us apart from others.

About you

We're looking for a candidate with a proven track record of working with full-stack web development. A candidate who is a generalist rather than a specialist with an analytical mindset. Someone that can take responsibility and ownership and manage herself by understanding what actions need to be taken to reach the goal. Someone who knows when to overachieve and when good enough is good enough, and who understands that the customers are crucial for the company's existence. Having an entrepreneurial spirit, you can say.

You are fluent in at least most of the technologies we use, such as Ruby/Ruby on Rails, HTML/Haml, CSS/Sass, Javascript, SQL, HTTP, Git, Rspec/Minitest, and Linux Administration.

Having a Computer Science degree is something we value but not something that we require. What's important is that you have the skills needed to do the job rather than how you got them. And that you want to continue learning.

Being a somewhat distributed team, it's important that you are able to communicate well in writing as well as in speaking. And to express yourself clearly and succinctly in English.
