Who we are
We’re a growing international company from Helsinki (Finland) that helps online stores by automating the discovery and embedding of product videos. Our team is spread out across 6 countries around the world.
We’re artists, creators, designers, travelers, cyclists, programmers, dancers, photographers, writers, pet lovers, gamers, campers, runners, parents, sailors, entrepreneurs.
We all are so different, but we’re united by common values and goals: do exceptional work, have fun, build the best product in the business, experiment, treat people right, tell the truth, have a positive impact on the world around us, and keep learning.
Here’s what you will be doing
One of our systems has been written with Angular 1 and has a pretty simple UI made with Bootstrap. We'd like to rewrite it to a newer stack (most likely it will be Ember, as we're using it for two other of our apps). You'll be re-thinking, refactoring and rewriting some of the old app functionality to a newer stack, section by section, but also developing new features for this new app.
The app itself is a part of our internal system processes used by the internal team, a sort of Admin UI for controlling the customers' accounts.
Who you are
If you consider yourself an eager learner, a conscientious worker, and a thoughtful, kind, supportive human, we’re happy to accept you. You like to communicate proactively all the challenges ahead, making sure that all the expectations around are aligned properly. And of course, you like coding.

- A great team player who is able to share their work with their teammates and solve big problems in cooperation.
- Good analytical skills, ability to make truthful conclusions on problems and their causes
It's also natural for you to ask questions and say if there's something you're not that familiar with yet. There is always room to grow and learn, and you don't need to be perfect, no one is. This is how we see honesty and humanity.
