What will you do?

When on a project with us, you’ll integrate an agile environment, and be responsible for developing end-to-end solutions with our clients. You’re expected to contribute not only with your technical skills but also to share knowledge within the team. You will be involved in different types of projects (one at a time), working on a full-stack perspective, doing front-end and/or back-end according to the needs. 

This is a fully remote position, so you can work from wherever you’d like, as long as you are based in Europe and are able to work in a similar time zone (GMT +/- 2 hours). This is a contract/freelance position, if you’re only interested in a permanent role please apply here.

Please note, if you are based in the UK please contact our teams in London or Manchester

Depending on the needs of the project, you might be asked to attend some onsite client meetings or workshops, so you need to be able to travel abroad (all expenses will be covered). We also get together from time to time and you will also be invited for all social EE events.
