Headquarters: Ostrava, Czech Republic
Who we are
In Ben Loop we are developing custom-made mobile and web applications. We focus on long-term cooperation in projects and we collaborate with clients from around the globe. Besides the Czech Republic, they are from Spain, Germany and USA at the moment.
Our clients include advanced start-ups as well as bigger and well-established companies and their internal start-ups.
What will your working day look like
Ben Loop was founded by two freelancers and, perhaps, that’s why we put great emphasis on personal freedom.
You can start when you want in the morning and decide yourself where you’re going to work. We usually work remotely in Ben Loop, but there are certain periods when we gladly go to our office in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
First thing in the morning we have a stand-up via Skype/Hangout. The stand-up time may vary and is always arranged by mutual agreement. Some prefer starting early, others work better later.
We usually discuss the previous day’s issues as well as tasks for the current day at the stand-up.
Everyone then works on their assignments during the day and any other potential communication is carried on via Basecamp/Github. Nobody checks anybody as for when and how they work – only the results are important.
During the day and at the end of it, we commit the work in a standard way to Github where another developer always performs Code Review for you after you complete a task.
We usually work in this way for our clients 4 days a week, the fifth day is dedicated to education, open source or other development activities we don’t have time for during the week.
Who we are looking for
We are looking for developers for long-term cooperation who have experience with Ruby on Rails and enjoy working on backend.
The most important thing for us is the ability to learn new things, open-mindedness, a common touch and the ability to deal with problems independently.
What we can gradually offer to you
Great level of freedom
Remote work and flexible working hours (please read – you work no more than 8 hours, when you decide, not from sun to sun).
Everybody in Ben Loop can take as much paid holiday as they want. We consider rest as an inseparable part of work and therefore we don’t prevent anybody from taking time off when it’s needed.
New hardware on a regular basis
Everyone gets a new MacBook and iPhone or an Android phone (of your choice) every two or three years.
A load of other benefits
Everyone in Ben Loop can choose other benefits which suit them best. The standard ones include sport, massage or education benefits, holiday allowance and more.
To apply: To apply for this position please send a short summarization of your work experience to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t send us a typical CV, nobody will read it. Also any open source activity or open projects are a big plus, so don’t forget to add a link to your Github profile. We accept only the applicants who live in the areas with a reasonable working time overlap with the Central European Time Zone (GMT+1). The overlap should be at least 4 hours a day during standard working hours.
