The mission of 55 Degrees is to “unleash the potential of all teams at all levels through software and services that help make work life easier.” We are a boot-strapped software development and consulting startup - no VC funding here and we plan to keep it that way!

Join our team!

Our software products are used by companies across the world, large and small. We need to expand beyond the capabilities and capacity of our founders and our development team is where we are going to start. This Front-End / Javascript Developer position is special as it represents our first non-founder employee - employee #3! 

About employee #3

You likely hold a bachelor degree in Computer Science or related field (though not required) and you have at least a couple of years experience in front-end development using Javascript and APIs.

You enjoy working in a team and you take pride in doing things well. You are energized by challenges and you are eager to learn and improve daily. You have a positive attitude, even when sharing differing opinions, and you exhibit willingness to help others when needed.

Finally, you are living within commuting distance of our office in Svedala (or plan to) and you have the ability to work in Sweden without sponsorship from an employer.

Your primary job duties:

  • Front-end development for our product lines, including our flagship product line: ActionableAgile. 
  • Implementing automated testing for our product lines where needed and help with manual testing of the rest. (you can learn this on the job if needed)
  • Assisting with customer's support issues related to the product lines you work on.

Our expectations of you:

  • Ability to code using Javascript and TypeScript
  • Experience using REST APIs.
  • Professional-level fluency in written and spoken English.
  • Consideration and advocacy for end-users in the app and in our work processes.
  • A willingness to help out in other areas as required - this is key for any startup!

What you should expect from us:

All of the normal perks and benefits of jobs in Sweden plus:

  • Competitive salary commensurate with your experience level
  • 1 extra week of paid vacation time
  • Realistic expectations around deadlines and capabilities
  • Ability to work from home multiple days a week, if desired.
  • Volunteer time to spend improving your community
  • Opportunity to travel within Europe and to the US for conferences and other events we sponsor.

In addition, there are other less tangible things we want you to experience as an employee of 55 Degrees like feeling valued because of your uniqueness rather than in spite of it. We want you to have the opportunity to influence both your role and the decisions of our growing company. 

As employee #3 you'll be a huge part of forming our future.
