What do we offer?
We have 23 standard PTO (Paid Time Off) days, plus up to 2 days from the benefits (to be used on special dates).
We have an office, and we prefer seeing each other often, but we already had a healthy WFH culture before Covid19 came so when it happened, we just switched to every-day WFH. However, we would prefer if you live in or near Madrid so when we open the office again it won’t be a problem for you to enjoy it.
We have a very flexible approach to working hours. You can stop to go to the gym, get your little ones to or from school, meditate or do whatever you need or want. There is a need for a certain amount of overlap with Pacific Coast working hours needed for meetings and collaboration that does not fit into asynchronous communications, however we try to prioritise those, and your main collaborators are based on Spain.A lot of people at Returnly have families, we understand the sometimes unpredictable nature of life and we support every one taking care of their loved ones and themselves, and we trust everyone to take advantage of this flexibility in a responsible way.
We do performance and compensation reviews, and we will try to help you become your better self, be it via mentoring, training, feedback or the possibility to dab on fields where you are not yet an expert.
You will be provided with an apple laptop and whatever you need to do your job comfortably and productively. As we are now unable to enjoy our awesome offices, special provisions to help you set up at home will be addressed.
Additionally, Returnly offers some benefits to all Spain employees, like private medical insurance, extra vacation days, weekly team lunch, etc.
Employees can choose some extra benefits since day one and they will earn more every year they remain at Returnly, benefits include things like gym membership, phone/Internet, transport, meal….
What will you do?
Extend Returnly’s web apps user interface to cover new features.
Create new atoms, molecules and full components within Returnly’s Component Design System, making sure they are easy to use, easy to customise and easy to extend or modify in the future.
Maintain legacy code or port it to our newest stack, when practical, and be able to tell what is the better option each time.
In one month
You will have Returnly’s stack and tools installed on your machine and a general understanding of how everything works together.
You will have read most of Returnly’s documentation that is relevant to you.
You will be able to assume your own tasks even if completing them requires asking questions or collaborating with peers.
You will have deployed some code to production.
In three months
You will be able to work mostly unsupervised, to ask relevant questions about new tasks before starting them so that your workload flows in a mostly predictable manner.
You will have extended or enhanced some of existing documentation with new or more detailed info.
In six months
You will have added some sizable features to Returnly’s interface and will be the go-to person about their implementation, or feasibility of future developments.
You will have authored some new parts of the documentation.
How will you do it?
We use a Material Design inspired Component Design System, and React
/Redux to handle the most interactive parts.
We use a variation of Kanban with weekly check-ups to re-evaluate prioritization and user stories grooming.
Every other week we check OKR alignment with the wider team and sometimes do small focused 3min demos to see what everyone is doing.
You will work with a product owner, one or more webapps developers, one or more services developers, and one QA engineer in a cross-functional autonomous team that we call a Pod.
You will also have the chance to refine best-practices and propose technical work, refactorings and reliability enhancements in periodical work sessions with your stack-peers from every Pod.
We have an incredible office at Calle Larra, Madrid, with shared kitchen, lunch space, bike parking, a sunny terrace, lockers, top notch video conference equipment, and surrounded by nice restaurants and numerous public transportation options. But alas, due to Covid19, we are now unable to use it safely so we are working from home for the time being. (We will review this later)
