Imagine yourself working for a cool online company (+/- 20 great team members) creating new cutting edge products on the web. We share ideas and new programming techniques via Glip (similar to Slack) with constant communication and use Asana and sprints to plan our work. We are easy going but with a great work ethic and (most importantly) get shit done when the pressure is on.
Do you want to grow together and help us move towards our big ambitions? Get attractive bonuses based on your work results? We will, of course, respect your local holidays and you get to decide your hours and decide what (and if J) you were while working.
Sounds good? Then keep reading!

Your average day in KVSocial
First, you’d log into Glip (team chat) and Teamrack (our intranet software), check all messages and provide response where needed. After that, pull Git repo's on the project(s) you are working on. To start programming, you’d open Asana, and check your tasks. If you have any questions about priority or any of the pending tasks, you would ask them on Glip. Then start working, and every task you finish do a Git commit. At the end of your day, you would give a short 'twitter like' update in teamrack on what you have done that day.
We work in weekly or bi-weekly sprints to protect our developers from constantly changing requirements. So when a sprint is planned you know what to do for the next week or 2 weeks, and you get to plan your own time around that.
About us - KVSocial
We have 20 employees (+1?), and our primary business focus is web applications and SaaS products in the Internet Marketing market. However, we are gradually moving away from IM and the one-problem-one-solution software and 'opportunity' products to a real SaaS model.
The company has been around for 3+ years and has been profitable from year 1. We have launched various software apps and websites (like this site Jobrack.eu) and gained tens of thousands of customers in the process.
This is a fully remote, full-time position in a team working on different parts of the world including the Philippines, and Eastern Europe. The team is run by a CEO and CTO, both of them of whom are Digital Nomads working from different spots in the world! It doesn’t matter in which time zone you are currently based in, as long as you make it to our daily meetings that are a must to attend.
We don't have a formal culture -- you can talk to anybody in the team, including the CEO and CTO, in ordinary matter. Furthermore, we don't care if you show up to work in your pajamas, shorts or a suit :). Also if you have digital nomad ambitions, we'll be happy to help out with that!
We look for dedication and professionalism while giving you full creative freedom. We all contribute immensely to the success of our company, and all employees are an integral part of our success. We want people who believe in our product as much as we do. In return, we give you the flexibility to work in your most motivating environment.
We love our multi-cultural company and the fact we have people from all over the world working on creating the best products to give our customers.

The salary is negotiable based on the skill set but in the range of 6-15$ph depending on your experience and skills.
