Whitespectre is a technology consultancy that develops high-performing platforms and applications for our client partners.

  • Designing new architectures and justifying your design decisions to other team members.

  • Identifying bottlenecks, using tools to diagnose and refactor code for scale

  • Ensuring the robustness, performance and failure characteristics of the system.

  • Writing well tested (rspec), defect-free code with CI/CD

  • Taking ownership of production applications - managing issues, releases and ensuring quality

What do we offer?

  • 100% Remote team: Work as part of a talented, globally distributed, successful team with over 8 years of remote experience.

  • Interesting challenges: We’ve done everything from scaling high-performance applications, building beautiful (but complex) user interfaces to low-level bluetooth communication with hardware devices.

  • Impact: Our delivery teams are fast-moving, highly collaborative, and own products end to end- your thinking and contribution make a big impact!

  • Great environment: We provide a great working atmosphere where you can share and learn with other smart people.

  • Career progression: We want you to grow with us and provide the opportunities, knowledge sharing and mentorship to do that.

  • The best-in-class toolsets: Slack, CI/CD with Docker etc

  • Work-life balance: love your work, but know that it doesn’t take over your life.

  • Paid Meetups: Come meet with your colleagues in Barcelona or at a local meetup.

  • Competitive rates: This is a contract position with a long-term outlook (12 months+ full-time projects) for the right candidate.
