Job description

We're looking for a Software Engineer with a passion for web development and delightful user experiences to join the team at Reincubate. You will be working to improve our websites and backend services to help our users learn about and try out our apps, such as Camo (https://reincubate.com/camo/) and iPhone Backup Extractor (https://reincubate.com/iphone-backup-extractor/).

Our customers include teams at Apple, Google, Meta, Microsoft, and Amazon, the world's top universities, VIPs around the world, and plenty of people who just want to look better online. Our work has been recognised by HM Queen Elizabeth II, the NYT, WSJ, and the BBC.

This role could be right for you if you have a keen interest in web development, an excellent eye for detail, and a feel for what makes a great user experience on the web. You'll be joining a growing team with a clear focus on our websites and related tooling; and, as you settle into the role, we'll be looking to you for new ideas and technologies to continue improving them.

Here's a video of Hlynur, the team lead, talking about the role (https://youtu.be/EqCansOmslw).

You will:

  • Be in charge of maintaining and improving our websites in collaboration with our designers, photographers, and marketing team
  • Build new and delightful experiences for our users as they interact with our apps and websites
  • Make our websites more user-friendly and accessible for all
  • Help modernise our tooling, architecture and development practices

We will:

  • Help you get set up and contribute to a comfortable and productive working environment: delight follows from delight.
  • Give you autonomy in your work. We trust you to solve hard problems well.
  • Help you settle into your role, manage your responsibilities, and grow as a member of the team. We believe progress comes through sustainable growth.
  • Foster a space for you to share your opinions and ideas. Integrity and openness are bedrocks of how we interact with one another and our users.
  • Provide excellent benefits: 25 days' paid vacation, flexible hours, remote work, share options, healthcare, matched 401(k), and equipment, home-office & professional development allowances

You might suit this role if you:

  • Like implementing pixel-perfect designs and creative visual experiences on the web
  • Can pick up existing projects quickly and devise iterative improvements that make an impact on the user experience
  • Enjoy working as part of a small, focused team of individual contributors, and like taking ownership of projects from initial planning to release
  • Relate to our values (https://reincubate.com/about/): creating delight, “it just works”, sustainability, and integrity.
  • Wish there were more websites that felt 'just right'.

We're looking for:

  • Knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JS, with bonus points for experience with Vue.js specifically
  • Experience building websites with an awareness of maintainable design principles, accessibility, performance, and browser compatibility
  • Familiarity with at least one common programming language (Python, Javascript, Ruby, etc.). Bonus points for experience with Python and the Django web framework in particular.
  • An ability and desire to learn, develop, and share new ideas, and implement those individually or as part of a team
  • An awareness of design prototyping tools (Figma being a plus), web development best-practices and trends, and how the internet works

You should include these in your application:

  • A CV that gives us a great idea of who you are and what you're about.
  • An online portfolio or link to your GitHub. We'd love to see what you've built so far.
  • A cover letter if you'd like to tell us more about yourself, or if there is anything you'd like to ask us from the very start.
