✌️ We are Type

Hey, I’m Jan, I do the coding over here at Type.
Have you ever wanted to edit a video via text? No? Well, we did! Rethink the future of how people edit videos! We transcribe your video so you can easily edit it by editing the text as well as add subtitles automatically.

As you can probably assume, coding everything myself has become a bit too much for me to handle on my own, especially when it comes to keeping up with the expansion of the product.
This is where you come in!

🛠 What are we looking for?

We are looking for a JavaScript/TypeScript Developer. Building a new way to edit videos is a big challenge, and there are still many more ideas to be implemented. Therefore we are looking for someone to roll up their sleeves and jump on-board!

We would love to see applications from developers with 3+ years of experience in JavaScript development (If some of that time was spent with a SaaS startup, that would be ideal).

We’re a small team, but we are accomplishing big things! We are looking for someone who is self-driven and passionate about creating a joyful product. We don't necessarily have a master plan, but we are having a great time figuring out how to solve any problems that come our way!

💪 Requirements

We understand not everyone can check off all of the boxes, and we ourselves are constantly learning. However, here are a few things we are looking for:

🤓 Someone who is experienced in Angular and has a strong knowledge of JS fundamentals.
🤝 A team player who likes to get involved when someone is stuck and who likes to give and receive feedback.
🔩 You enjoy building a product from scratch. This means high involvement in the design process and understanding customer wants. It also means that you enjoy making technical decisions.
🔍 Someone who is versatile and who throws himself into different things. Building our video editor isn’t always easy, so you jump between different tasks like improving our cloud architecture, adjusting the rendering API, or fiddle around with DevOps stuff. You don’t need to know it all, but you should be up for a challenge.
👀 You love learning technologies as you go. You always want to find the right tool for the job and don't only follow what you already know.

You will primarily be working on the Angular frontend, and with NodeJS on the serverless backend to help us create more video editing features for our customers. As an early-stage startup, we are not extremely overbuilt and have a lot of open space to explore and test new ideas. In the end it’s all about our users and how to serve them best.

🤩 Benefits

Where? When? How? Come in late? Leave early? Want to bring the dog into the office? Swap a weekday for a weekend?
All of the above is 100% cool with us!

We love the spirit of being together and enjoying our time together. We would love to have you in our core team grinding with us. Whatever your perfect environment looks like, you’ll have the freedom and autonomy you need to make decisions and do your best work.

Our team is young, extremely driven, and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. And we all love what we do.

🤙 Our process

The starting date is as soon as possible. However, we are willing to wait for the right candidate. And will do everything to accommodate your needs.

Get to know each other:

I will tell you a little bit more about what we're working on and who we are and would love to learn more about you. We'll use this chance to see whether both our expectations align.

Technical assessment:

You will spend some time with us at the office and work on some upcoming tasks from our roadmap. We'll use that to have a conversation about which decisions you've taken and why.

Meet the team:

You'll get to meet our other team members (Marvin, Michael, Alex and Erik). We value team fit over everything else. This also gives you the chance to see whether you'd enjoy working with us.
