Let’s talk about Solutions Engineering ⭐️

The Solutions Engineering team’s vision is to be the engineering team that adds the most business value in the shortest amount of time. We develop impactful applications, products, tools, and utilities to ensure our clients have the best possible service. You put the name and we provide what we call Solutions. We are the ones that close the gap between Engineering and Business to resolve the needs that Stuart users have that are not addressed directly by the platform 🚀

This role will have a huge impact in a newly forming department where there are still many things yet to be defined. In a sense, it will be like joining a Startup inside a Startup 🙌

This position is available to work remotely anywhere in Portugal 🇵🇹

What will I be doing? 🤔

  • Developing and maintaining innovative Solutions for our local business team’s needs.
  • Developing new Services to integrate the Stuart platform with other services.
  • Developing new web applications for new local Stuart products.
  • Developing new mobile applications for Hub optimization/management.
  • Developing and maintain integrations for the clients of our local business teams.
  • Contributing to defining along with the rest of the Engineering team our next APIs (as a key consumer of it).

What do we need from you? 😎

  • You will have a solutions orientated mindset – you’re a creative problem solver even when sometimes the tools are limited. 🧠
  • 3 years of experience as a software engineer are desirable, but if you’re a talented individual, it’s not a must.
  • You’ve worked with NodeJS as the role is about 70% server-side coding. 💻
  • In the past you independently developed applications starting with UI and ending on server-side and database implementation (not necessarily in this order). 📚
  • You’ve got a Computer Science degree, Vocational Education or similar related to computer science. 🎓
  • High quality and testable code is your domain, but you’re occasionally happy to prototype hackathon-style (and clean-up afterwards 😉).✨
  • Working with 3rd party systems, building integrations and plugins is something you’re familiar with. 🛸
  • We (sometimes 😉) deploy a few times a day, which means, you should know what CI stands for (and you’ve used it before).
  • You can gather requirements, plan your own work and propose software solutions to real-life problems. 🗺
  • You value communication and collaboration. 💬
  • You’re fluent in English.

The stuff you wanna know 😉

  • Family-friendly work-life balance – work from home and flexible hours
  • Option to work remotely anywhere in Portugal 🇵🇹
  • Ticket Restaurant by Edenred( €7 daily) 🥗
  • Unlimited access to Udemy for all your learning and development needs
  • Stuart Academy with regular workshops, Stu-Classes, and Stu-Talks
  • Stuart is putting Mental Health Awareness first! Wellness Allowance (€40 monthly) to use in any gym or sport class 🧘
  • Private healthcare 🧑‍⚕️
  • Work in an international, dynamic and passionate environment with a company culture focused on learning and development
