3D technology has evolved massively since its inception just a few decades ago. With the rise of augmented reality and the growing number of features and uses, the future for 3D looks even brighter and more versatile. AR will revolutionize 3D modeling forever and bring a series of new uses.

About this role

Never met a puzzle you couldn’t solve? Do complex problems pique your interest? Are you led by curiosity and the inner need to find more straightforward solutions? Vectary is the first browser-based 3D design platform. From an engineering perspective - this requires the front-end 3D kernel to work flawlessly with robust back-end services. It’s where the front-end stack meets the back-end stack, all while the information travels through cloud infrastructure. Building a platform like this in the cloud can be considered a daunting task. It requires a mix of user experience, performance, and quality, all from within a browser.

That’s why we’re looking for a software engineer with a proven track record of building complex applications.You will be flexible when choosing technologies but rigid in their execution and quality. You’re also driven, motivated, and are comfortable working with a fully remote team. If building a cutting-edge cloud application is your passion, then Vectary is what you’re looking for.

What you’ll do:

  • Participate in all areas of development, from ideation to execution
  • Collaborate with designers, product managers, and other engineers
  • Present ideas, which you will plan and execute
  • Build and maintain; you understand both are equally important and need to be thoroughly documented
  • Take care of the environment your code runs in and understand the underlying infrastructure
  • Be a team player; support your peers by providing constructive feedback and assistance
  • Help grow the company by participating in the recruitment process

What you’ll bring:

  • 3+ years of previous programming experience with JavaScript or TypeScript
  • Experience with Node.js like frameworks (e.g. Express.js) and tooling (e.g. webpack)
  • Experience with virtual environments (e.g. Docker)
  • Understanding of cloud infrastructures (e.g. AWS, GCP, or others)
  • Advanced understanding of SQL and/or NoSQL databases (e.g. PostgreSQL, Mongo, ElasticSearch, or others)
  • You understand the concept of monolithic repositories, multiple repositories, and monorepo
  • We’re a globally distributed team, so fluency in English (written and spoken) is important

We also hope you are interested in one or more of these topics:

  • Web application development
  • Cloud infrastructure design
  • 2D/3D graphics
  • C++ application development for the web (Emscripten/WebAssembly)
  • Native application development and Electron application bundling

Essential attributes

  • Team player spirit
  • Fast learner and do-er
  • Big-picture and forward-thinking
  • Friendly and approachable
  • Focus on quality and continuous improvement
  • Attention to detail
  • Be curious
