Why will you enjoy this new opportunity?

Do you hate those dummy chatbots that never understand you? We all do. If you want to join a team that is determined to resolve this, you have come to the right place.

As part of the NativeChat team you’ll be working on a highly available cloud-native product hosted in AWS relying on various natural language processing technologies and delivered in a fully automated way.

We are a small, self-sufficient engineering team. We are enabled to make decisions autonomously and execute them quickly. We love exploring bleeding-edge technologies and consistently incorporate learning opportunities into our planning. We highly value spending time physically together as a team, while at the same time embracing the convenience of working remotely.

In the team all developers have the opportunity to learn both front-end and back-end development. If you have proven experience with front-end development but want to venture into the cloud orchestration world and at the same time improve your communication skills in solving customer challenges as part of customer meetings, this role is the perfect fit for you.

But apart from technologies, the best asset of NativeChat is the team itself. If you believe in "No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it.", then you’re the person we’re looking for.

In this highly technical role, you will be responsible for building the user interface of NativeChat that allows customers to develop chatbots for automating workflows or answering frequently asked questions, fixing UI bugs, improving UI performance, building chatbots for clients and prospects and fixing issues on NativeChat’s cloud-based server logic.

  • Experience building large-scale, rich, interactive, web interfaces

  • Good written and verbal English skills

Extra awesome:

  • Experience building chatbots
  • Experience with React
  • Experience with natural language processing
  • REST API design, implementation, and usage

What we offer in return is the opportunity to join a talented team of bright and nice people and to also enjoy:

Compensation:

  • Generous remuneration package
  • Employee Stock Purchase Plan Enrollment

Vacation, Family and Health:

  • 30 days paid annual vacation
