Back-End Developer

Do you work well with PHP based frameworks, OOP, PHP 5 & 7? Then your B/E skills belong with Grapefruit. Let’s meet!

What technologies we use

We continuously change our development process based on input from our team members and good case practices. We listen to our colleagues. At present we use React for our projects but we don’t shy away from Vue.js or learning new frameworks. 

Next.js is our preferred React framework but we want to get some projects to explore Gatsby. Our UX/UI Designers work with Adobe XD so extracting assets is a charm. 

We prefer Babel, Webpack, NPM and everybody needs to know git and git flow so we can work happily together. There’s still an internal debate between NPM and Yarn. Maybe you will settle it. Also, Atlassian is our friend with Jira, Bitbucket, and Confluence integration. 

We use Slack to communicate with the team and the rest of the company. On the Back-End we plan to migrate from PHP to Node.js. We are also discussing using GraphQL so Front-End Developers can be happier. At the same time, Back-end Developers are already doing a great job of making it easy to understand APIs.

Projects and Clients

Our projects range in size from weeks to years. Because of this reason, chances are you will never be bored of your projects and you will have chances to explore new technologies often. Usually people work on a single project but sometimes there will be some small requests on other projects.

In the last year, our front-end team has worked on projects such as: 

We work with big clients such as: Dacia, Renault, Nissan, BCR, Philip Morris, E.ON, Nestlé, Alpha Bank, and more. 

Company Culture

Professional and Personal Growth

We continuously invest in the professional growth of our team. Our wish is that each team member gets visibility when it comes to their expertise and constantly grows. We encourage people to take courses and we pay for them if they are useful for present or future projects.

Leadership Opportunities & Domain Experts

The majority of our team leaders come from within the organization. We encourage colleagues to develop their leadership potential. To do this we have shadowing programs for people that want to learn how to become a team leader. 

We encourage people to learn so they become domain experts on the technologies they like. This way they become the go to person when it comes to that specific technology and can practice leadership skills.

Remote work, Flexible schedule & we don’t encourage overtime

You can work remotely, or from the office (because of Covid, at the moment we all work remotely). We usually work from 9:00 to 18:00 with one hour of break. If you need, you can take time off during the day and either catch-up later or take it from your vacation days. If you need a different schedule we can also accommodate this. Just mention it at the interview and we will find a solution that suits everyone.

We don’t like overtime and we don’t encourage it. If the needs appear though, you are always asked if you want to do it and it is always paid. If you don’t want to do overtime, there are no hard feelings. 

Company and team size

We have two offices in Iasi & Bucharest but we accept remote people from everywhere in Romania. At this moment we are 50+ people in the company, with a development team of 15+ colleagues, split in Front-End, Back-End, and QA.

We have cross-specialty teams. This means you will work together with project managers, designers, marketing specialists & other developers. The team sizes range from 3 to 9 colleagues. 

Compensation

We believe in fairness so all our salaries are set to seniority levels. We check seniority levels twice a year. You get support from your team leader to advance to the next seniority levels. If you advance to the next seniority level, you automatically get a raise.

If you have the same seniority level as a colleague, you both have the same salary, so there are no hard feelings. We also research and participate in salary studies to remain competitive in the market.
