Senior Software Developer

Are you looking for something different? Know your skills would be best used to make the world a better place? Imagine there exists a company that really understands this by respecting your work-life balance, encouraging you to meditate and go on retreats, and knows that caring for others is of utmost importance: a company where not only is your work important, but you are too.

Retreat Guru is all of this!

Is our development team the right place for you? If you have an entrepreneurial mind, love a good laugh and also are happy engineering software, it just might be!

Working with Retreat Guru is a enticing blend of teamwork, personal development and tech. Join us to work with truly awesome people (if we may say so ourselves!). Our team is more diverse and interesting than you might expect for a tech shop in small, remote mountain town. We work out of a unique co-working space with daily mindfulness, yoga sessions, regular sharing circles and lunchtime presentations.

Wishing for a family-friendly work environment? We have you covered! Raising children (or pets!) means you need to be there at odd times and often last minute, and your family should be your priority: flexible working hours and options to work from home are all a part of our culture.

  • Multiple years of hands-on professional experience in software development/engineering developing well-designed object-oriented software
  • Proficiency in multiple development languages
  • In-depth knowledge of the software development life-cycle and concepts of software engineering
  • Good grasp of version control and experience using it (Git/GitHub)

  • Experience in relational databases (SQL or Postgres)
  • Experience in frontend development (HTML/CSS/JS and Vue.js)
  • Experience programming in PHP (especially Laravel or Wordpress)
  • Past UI / UX related development experience
  • Solid grasp of Linux based systems

You love:

  • Helping your team, no matter what the task might be
  • Finding creative, innovative ways to solve problems
  • Making your own choices both at work and in your life
  • Working with a team you can trust
  • Using your skills to bring good to others

You are:
