Here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Visme.

If you share the same feelings and want to take a stable and long-term look at your career long-term, we'd love to hear from you:

Culture and Values at Visme: We treat each other with respect, we give constructive feedback when needed and praise when deserved.

Diversity at Visme: Our team is diverse from over 12 nationalities and various ethnicities.

Visme Family: We treat each other like a Family and have full respect and appreciation for each other.

You want to be a part of Visme because:

You love Code. You love to take raw ideas and build great products with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. You know JavaScript isn't perfect, but you embrace its functionality and have a passion for coding with it. But you also have strengths in back-end technologies (PHP/MySQL) and know your way around Server Side (you're comfortable with SSH and familiar with AWS infrastructure). But most of the time you just want to write simple code and ship new products and features to customers (or improve existing ones).

You love to be challenged. You respect processes but it's also why you don't like corporate structure. You want to be a part of a start-up that is nimble but stable, innovative but not too risky, you want to be able to contribute and not just follow the standards and copy what everyone else is doing.

You love great UX. After all, we are Visme: A visual design tool, so clean and aesthetic design and user experience is imperative to Visme. Although you spend most of your time coding, you also have an eye for great design and a feel for great UX. Beautiful UI helps weave your code into an impeccable experience for the user. In short, you care about more than just the code but the entire product and process.

You want to help others. You want to share your knowledge with the rest of your team, building shared tooling for other engineers, and even directly helping customers when the need arises.

You love learning new things. If you don't know it, you wanna learn it. Part of your R&R time is to research new tech and driving forward your knowledge, always moving to figure things out and improve your experience. Your focus is on frontend JavaScript code, but you also are comfortable with shell scripts, back-end technologies and want to strengthen yourself as Full-Stack.

You can balance lots of concerns. Visme is a SPA, as with any Frontend apps you have to take into account performance (using networks and devices that we can't control), customer demands, UX research, A/B tests, code quality, our rapidly changing ecosystem of modules, etc.. You are able to effectively manage your time. You can balance those demands without getting overwhelmed and keep the needle moving forward. At the end of the day, we also ship products too.
