Dakai (dakai.io) is a software development consultancy with a focus on distributed ledger technology (DLT). We have a fast-growing remote team in Europe, with clients from Budapest through Munich to the Bay Area. If you want to work on cutting edge projects using the latest technologies in a team where the best ideas win, you've come to the right place.


The Role

We are looking for a remote mid/senior level engineer to join our small team. We mainly do client work, with some internal and hobby projects in the mix. Our stack is made up of React/React Native, Ruby/Rails and Go. We use Heroku for deployment and as systems grow, we move performance-critical components over to AWS.

We prefer full-stack candidates with a deep understanding of the entire scope of an application. Professional experience with JavaScript/React and a high-level backend language is a must and the more you know of the other technologies, the better. While everyone has a main area of focus, we encourage working on different parts of codebases/stacks to be a more well-rounded engineer.


Working at Dakai

We're a small team of engineers who enjoy building products. Everyone is a polyglot, but we have a long love affair with Ruby and also code a lot in JavaScript (both V8 and Node-based technologies). As a distributed team, we work asynchronously from all over Europe. To support this, we communicate frequently and proactively. We have multiple team calls a week to update and align everyone and additional calls whenever it's needed.

The optimal iteration for us is five-week cycles followed by one-week of optimization and planning. This allows us to focus on real objectives, avoid ever-revolving priorities and stay calm even in challenging situations.

We work hard to create a climate where people think from first principles and challenge the status quo. All ideas are considered equal, as long as they're backed up by evidence, no matter people's role within the team.


Who you are

- You write understandable, well-tested and maintainable code
- You embrace working independently without a lot of hand holding
- You have at least 2+ years of production experience with React and a high-level backend language
- You have remote working experience
- You are comfortable working with multiple levels of the stack
- You want to be part of a small, growth-minded startup team
- You care about improving as a developer and strive to be better tomorrow than today


Bonus points for experience with:

- [Huge plus] backend development in Ruby/Rails or Go
- maximizing tested scope with minimal no. of tests; knowing when perfect coverage is desirable vs unnecessary
- Postgres
- Redis
- Fish/Bash and POSIX systems
