Overview




Soflyy is seeking an experienced full-stack engineer to help us build the next iteration of our state-of-the-art drag & drop website builder for WordPress.

As a fully remote team, we don’t care what time zone you’re in or at what times you’re working. We only care about the quality of your work. We keep meetings and chat to the absolute minimum to foster focus time.

You’ll spend a lot of time in Vue (with TypeScript and Vuex), but you’re also expected to work with WordPress APIs and PHP. We do E2E testing with Cypress, and integration and unit tests with Jest.

Knowledge of Vue is a plus, but if you’re experienced with React jumping ship is easy enough – we’ve done it, and our codebase follows best practices to make it easy to understand everything.

You’re expected to be self-driven, solve problems and make decisions on your own. We trust you to create the best product you can (you can always ask for help though!).

We consider good communication skills very important because of the above.

 

Our stack

  • Vue (w/ Vuetify and Vuex)
  • PHP
  • WordPress
  • TypeScript (strict mode, 100% coverage)
  • Psalm (static analysis for PHP, similar to TypeScript)
  • Cypress / Jest
  • GitHub

 

Requirements

Must-haves

  • Vue experience (or React/Angular, and a desire to learn Vue)
  • PHP experience
  • All the other usual stuff (knowledge of Git & CSS, common sense, etc.)

 

Nice to have

  • An eye for design
  • TypeScript experience is a plus
  • WordPress experience is a plus
  • Knowledge of testing modern apps is a plus

 

How We Work

You’ll be working closely with the founder (me, Louis) and two other senior engineers.

Everything is async. We avoid meetings and interruptions.

We use GitHub and Basecamp to track tasks and monitor progress. Instead of a daily standup, everyone posts progress updates in Basecamp. A list of GitHub issues will be assigned to you, and you’ll implement the fixes and features in them and then submit a PR, which will be reviewed by one of the other engineers or the founder.

Very occasionally we’ll do a Zoom call to go over something, but that’s rare (think 1 or 2 per month).

In the beginning, we’re happy to do as many Zoom calls as you want to get you onboarded and up to speed.

It’s very easy to get started and you’ll be shipping features in no time. The last engineer we hired did less than one day of onboarding on Zoom and was shipping significant features at the end of the first week.

Our code base is high quality and very well-architected. We have CI, automated testing, TypeScript on strict mode, types on our PHP, etc.

 

What We Offer

  • $120,000k/year
  • Fully remote
  • No scheduling requirements – you can work whenever you want
  • A work environment free from politics / meetings / interruptions / bs
  • No overtime / crunch time / rushing / stress. We are a calm company: https://basecamp.com/books/calm
  • $2k/year learning materials budget

 

Interview Process

Email Louis (the founder): louis+job@soflyy.com.

If you sound like a good fit, we’ll schedule a short interview (~1 hour on Zoom) where we’ll have a conversation and ask some questions to get a sense of your software engineering abilities and experience. And of course, we’re happy to answer any questions you have about us.

You will be asked a few coding questions. If you are proficient in JavaScript and PHP, you’ll know the answers. There are no algorithms/ leetcode questions. The questions touch on practical and common tasks, such as working with arrays.

We are expecting to make a hiring decision in the next ~3 weeks. We are flexible and are happy to give you some time to wind things down at your current position if necessary.

 

Salary and compensation

$120,000 — $120,000/year
