Do you want your work seen by over 2 million daily unique users worldwide?

Now you can become an essential part of a company at the forefront of its field!

We are currently looking for a new Senior Backend Developer to join our 30+ team of developers, designers, journalists, and astrophysicists, who make the magic happen at our Time and Date HQ in Stavanger, Norway.

With over 11 nationalities represented, we are proud to have a talented team where everyone is included and welcome in our social work environment.

For us, some of the most important aspects of the right candidate are motivation, attitude, and communication in both your field of expertise and to our mission of simplifying life in a globalized world.

Our daily work-life is encapsulated by our values of Collaboration, Trust, Respect, Evolution, and Enjoyment.

We work smart and have fun while getting the job done.

As a Senior Backend Developer with us, your day-to-day tasks will include:

  • Ensuring our ever-expanding code base adheres to our standards of quality.
  • Creating software architecture for new applications/components and contributing to refactoring strategies as we migrate from C to Rust.
  • Having an eye (or two) for detail when supplying the team with code reviews and feedback.
  • Sharing your technical insights and being open to new learning experiences.
  • Collaborating and developing highly optimized and advanced algorithms and working on big data sets.
  • Letting out your organizational side in our core libraries and repositories.
  • Continuously contributing and implementing code standards.

As a Time and Date team member, you will have a free choice of preferred equipment. Your onboarding process is designed to ease you into the company over time.

Our wish list for a dream candidate looks a bit like this:

Your desk can be (a bit) messy, but your code should be of high quality, clean, standards-compliant, and accessible to ensure we keep our SEO score golden.

Be sure to let us know in your application if you are also familiar with developing or consuming web API services, software testing (Unit testing++), and containers and Kubernetes, as this will be a plus!

We are open to candidates with a niche skillset in our field or the services we provide but would love it if you also have a Computer Science degree - however, this is not necessarily a dealbreaker.

The only requirement written in stone is that you have a genuine love for Backend, a curious nature, and that you are comfortable with our corporate language being English.

Our offer:

We do not adhere to the commercial grind of consultancy work. With us, you can pour your heart into a project and follow it through its whole lifecycle.

What you do here daily has a significant impact, and you will get a respected and renowned stage to display your skills.

You can make changes and improvements as projects mature, working towards our long-term vision.

You will have five weeks of holiday, in addition to Christmas, New Year's, and the Wednesday before Easter.

The position is local, with a choice to work partially from home, but for very strong candidates, we are open to remote work options.

Our HQ is modern and on brand for us, both in design and layout.

We have a social style of working with jogging groups during the workday, along with sauna- gaming- hiking- climbing- and quiz- groups.

We offer HjemJobbHjem memberships for all employees and free parking on the premises.

We go on yearly company trips to exciting places abroad and excursions to capture live footage of the eclipses happening around the world.

We offer a competitive salary, with pension options and insurance to attract and keep the best candidates.

Think it would be a good fit?

We look forward to getting to know you, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out.
