JavaScript engineer - make your code matter more.

Are you looking for a challenge with purpose & meaning? We are looking too! But for a JavaScript engineer to help us build an emotionally engaging personal growth app that aims to bring people together to help them live meaningful lives.

What we believe At 29k we believe that individuals have the capacity to change the world for the better. If we can help people to live more meaningful lives we strongly believe that in turn they will improve the world through their actions. To achieve this ambitious goal, we're developing an app that combines proven psychology-based exercises with cultivating human connection through live video sharing.

Who we are 29k is a not-for-profit founded by the Norrsken Foundation and Ekskäret Foundation, with research partners at Karolinska and Harvard. We are building a free and open-source platform for personal development. Our 5-year goal is to improve the lives of 5 million people and our long term goal is to reach a threshold where we see systemic change in the world.

We are a small, close-knit team of skilled and motivated people who are convinced that the world can and needs to be changed for the better.

Product development stage After some time spent in the product discovery phase, we are now in the process of scaling up the team to begin building the product whilst also continuing further product discovery. It's for this reason that we need an experienced JavaScript engineer to help us get the product to a soft launch and beyond.

We’ve recently started technical development. We have decided on going all-in on JavaScript with React Native for the front-end and serverless node.js for the back-end. The rest is pretty much for us as a team to decide.

Who are you? We’re looking for a senior engineer that is comfortable in JavaScript and the latest ECMA standards.

You are curious and want to develop yourself as a person and the skills that you possess. You are passionate about bringing digital products to life and you know how to build optimal, user-friendly and data-driven applications. You care about open-source and have hopefully contributed to an existing project or maybe even started one. You have experience in designing and working in JavaScript based stacks. You may be more oriented towards front-end, back-end or both. You care about testing and quality.

We are super excited to hear from you :-)
