Careers

Back-end Engineer (Javascript)

We work on cool projects with a small team, in a flexible and relaxed atmosphere. Sounds good? Apply and come work with us!

TL:DR; We’re hiring a Back-end developer with a great understanding of back-end techs such as NodeJS.

You’ll be architecting new features for our customers, adapting existing code to be more scalable, and seeing changes through in a company that nurtures growth and learning.


Ars Futura is a remote-friendly software design and development agency based in Zagreb. At the moment, we have 30-ish laid-back, young, and dedicated people. They are split into multi-disciplinary teams, working on long-term projects of all sizes, for clients based in the United States. Our clients come from various industries and, just to name a few, we’ve worked with MLG, Blizzard, and Harvard.

Our Web team consists of front-end, back-end, and full-stack engineers who are working on various projects built in React, Node.js, and Ruby on Rails.

We’re always proud of what we build and hope you’ll come and build great things with us!

📚 Things you have to know

Before we get into the detail, there are a few things we expect you have:

  • 2+ years of experience with Javascript and Node.js
  • experience with Typescript and Node.js frameworks such as Nest.js and Sails is considered a plus
  • great understanding of data structures
  • familiarity with Git, continuous integration, and deployment
  • experience working with modern infrastructure and tools
  • experience with writing tests
  • excellent knowledge of English.

🐞 Writing & shipping quality code

Of course, we expect you to be able to write server scripts and APIs that will later be used by our front-end developers and designers. This is why we value when our developers write and ship clean and maintained code. Anything you create should be able to scale and adapt.

It would also be great if you knew how to properly use tools to debug your code.

🔎 Code review

You will be responsible for monitoring the quality of your own code but we also expect you to give feedback to others. You’ll be testing and continuously optimizing your back-end code but also going through what your team members developed and leaving comments on what you think they can improve. This helps our projects shine!

🙌 Teamwork

As a Back-end Engineer, you’ll have to work alongside our front-end developers, designers, and other Ars Futura team members as well as keep in touch with our clients. This is why we’re hoping to find someone with good communication and interpersonal skills. A project is always better if you find a way to work well with others.
