Tech at October

We think reinventing financing is a massive tech challenge, that’s why we built October as a tech-centered startup. Today, 10 developers are working on building the best financing experience ever made, very closely with the product team. The team is growing fast and should double over the next 12 months.

We love JavaScript at October. That’s why every part of our stack is based on JS: we use Node.js and MongoDB on the back-end, EmberJS on the front-end, and React Native on mobile. The platform runs on Heroku and AWS. You can take a look at our whole stack here: https://stackshare.io/october.

We believe in ownership and mentoring at October. The way we work will deeply involve every developer from day-1.

Day to day

  • Write technical specifications for the features defined by the product team
  • Write clean Node.js code with related tests
  • Help building a scalable infrastructure
  • Review code from other developers

Requirements

  • You’re fluent in JavaScript and have used Node.js before.
  • You have used GitHub, Gitlab or Bitbucket before.
  • You have knowledge of the code quality best practices (tests, continuous deployment, …)
  • You speak English easily.

We follow a 3-steps interview process:

  1. First, a 20-minutes call with our Head of Talent.
  2. Then, a JavaScript take-home exercice.
  3. Finally, an hour long on-site interview with the CTO and a lead developer.

We don’t believe in resumés and motivation letters. Just send us a link to your LinkedIn or GitHub profile.

Life at October

We are a European startup challenging the status quo. We’re trying to reinvent an aging industry by gathering tech-oriented passionate smart people. Besides daily stimulating challenges, we offer the following perks:

  • The hardware of your choice.
  • 7 extra vacation days per year.
  • Fruits and snacks all day long.
  • Lunch coupons, and exceptional health plan.

Our main office is in the center of Paris (Saint-Lazare), but we gather once a year with the 4 other offices for a 2-days offsite.
