About our Development team
We are a small team but growing rapidly. We started the year with 9 developers in our team and are looking to reach 20 by the end of the year.
We use Agile methodologies, following the Spotify structure. Our team is divided into crossfuntional squads who are fully responsible for a part of our product. Inside the squad we do short meetings to define our goals, share updates and blockers during the week. After each month we have a retrospective to continue to improve our processes.
We take ownership and hold ourselves to high standards. Developers are involved in the whole software development life cycle. You will write code but also E2E tests, migration scripts or monitor production.
What you’ll be working on as a Senior Software Developer
Depending on your interests and skills, you may do more feature work or more purely technical work, but the boundaries are fluid, and people can switch between teams. Every two weeks, you’ll have a private conversation with your manager where you can discuss these topics and more.
Build new product features. We are currently revamping our project dashboard, allowing users to compare two versions of a file simultaneously and adding the possibility to review live websites.
Track down bugs and fix them fast. Reliability and performance are key to provide the best experience to our customers.
Improve our development process. For example: adding new E2E tests to prevent bugs and reduce manual testing, refactoring concepts to reduce complexity or improving our CI/CD pipeline,
You have three years of experience working as a Software Developer. Now you’re looking for a new and exciting challenge that has a huge (and positive) impact on the way people work.
Here are some of the things we’d like to see from you:
You’re passionate about software development. You hold yourself to a high coding standard and write code that’s reliable, performs well, and is easy to understand.
You turn designs into technical concepts. You can translate complex UI/UX design into technical concepts for new features. You know how to make a solid action plan and execute it with your team.
You’re a problem solver. If that means forking a dependency to fix a bug, that’s what you do. If it means studying how color spaces work to guarantee color accuracy, so be it. If you find a concept that needs refactoring, you don’t ignore it.
You work well with lots of questions and few answers. No problem is too big or too hard. You’re at your most productive when ambitious goals are clearly set and you can choose your own path to reach them.
You’re hungry to learn. You roll your sleeves up to get things done. You strive to continuously improve, iterate and integrate what you learn.
You’re a strong communicator. You have experience collaborating with a distributed team.
Life at Filestage

Here are some of the benefits you can look forward to at Filestage:
Work from where you’re happiest and enjoy a flexible schedule. We’ve been fully remote from the start, giving you the opportunity to meet people all over the world and broaden your horizons.
Meet up in real life. We all travel together at least once a year (in normal times) at our team retreat to have fun and get to know each other.
Enjoy a strong team culture. We’re a group of knowledge seekers, reflective thinkers, clear communicators, goal owners, problem solvers and team players. These are the values we strive for to help us achieve our mission.

Create a workspace that suits you. You’ll get €1.000 to buy whatever you need to do your best work – including a computer, webcam or standing desk.
Get 30 days of holiday. Plenty of time for city breaks, summer escapes and everything in between.

Say goodbye to pointless meetings. We practice what we preach when it comes to productivity, so you can expect flat hierarchies, fast iterations and no bullshit meetings.
