Digital Care & Support Web Developer - Senior
There are 3 unusual facts about Support in Scandiweb:
1ST - there is very little bug fixing,
2ND - there is no "manager", there is nobody between you and the customer,
3RD - there is no "other guy", you are 100% trusted to do live deployments for Fortune 500 companies.
Let me explain each of them.
Firstly, we mostly work on new features, change requests, security enhancements, upgrades and conversion rate improvements. There are blockers and fixes, but they constitute less than a quarter of our work.
Secondly, there is no overbearing Project Manager. We believe that all Support Developers can develop communication talent to figure out what customers want, why they want it, suggest the optimal solution, implement it, test it, deploy it and celebrate! One man army!
Thirdly, it is THE THRILL of being the one taking the whole story from A to Z and eventually deploying your changes to the LIVE environment of a multi-million dollar business.
We work in small teams of 5-7 people guarding customers' businesses, figuring out solutions together, learning, sharing knowledge and just having crazy parties after a stressful week. Each team carries a superhero name - ready to kick-start Team Lacplesis?
There is a lot of freedom, for example, we set a goal to get 200 THANK YOUs from clients and go to a company-sponsored 2-week trip to Valencia. We received more than 300 THANK YOUs in one month, went to Valencia and what an adventure it was!
Solving hard problems brings people closer together, so there is a true family feeling in Scandiweb Support with its own culture, memes, celebrations, and superheroes on our t-shirts.
Drop us a line, let's arrange a short intro - come and meet the legendary team making Latvian developers the number one choice for brands like Jaguar, New York Times, Peugeot, Durex, Walmart, HappySocks and so many more!
We welcome Senior Support Developers, who are expected to:
- be ready to re-start - our team will shake you up, shake off the dust and open up new horizons in your career
- even if you know a LOT of stuff, we expect everybody to share their solutions, as it helps others learn from you and improve even the best delivery
- be prepared to engage in direct communication with the final customer - they know their business very very well, but they do not know the tech. It takes an extra layer of experience to get their THANK YOU.
