Founded in 2003, SimpleSite was one of the first tech start-ups in Denmark to do actual growth hacking, and achieved global coverage at rapid speed. Since then SimpleSite's organisation has grown to 60+ people with an annual revenue of around 10 million Euro. Today, SimpleSite has 90,000 premium users worldwide and more than 25 million websites were created. SimpleSite operates in 190+ countries with global customer service. Headquarters are located in Copenhagen, Denmark.

We are a value driven company with the core values:
  • Be proud of the success and accomplishments of our customers
  • Be result-oriented
  • Take responsibility
  • Show respect

About your new role:

You will be located in our headquarter right next to cozy Nyhavn in Copenhagen where you will work with a SaaS product that caters to a massive group of users. The work SimpleSite does affects millions of small businesses and persons around the world. As our QA / Developer you will take on the important task of structuring and automating QA and CI in our team. This has not been implemented in our team so far.

Not all QA is automated though, and you will be expected to take the lead on manual QA to verify that a given solution is according to specifications and works on all supported platforms. A part of the manual QA is to have an eye for the UI design specification and compare it to the actual implementation.

We also expect that you will be a part of our team of developers – preferably as a full-stack developer. We expect a split of 50/50 between QA/CI and development.

You will be working with:
  • Source control in GitHub
  • Deployment in TeamCity
  • Cloud based setup in AWS
  • Frontend developed in Angular 5
  • Backend developed in C#
  • Many services running in AWS / Cloud / 3rd party vendors
You will have a great deal of impact and responsibility and will work with new technologies, every day helping thousands of small entrepreneurs around the world getting the best possible start.

All members of the team, work according to the values and there is a holistic attention in the company to live up to them.

The product development team in Copenhagen consists of four software developers, 1 UI designer, 1 UX expert, 2 copywriters and email experts, and 2 data analysts. We have a great teamspirit and frequently have social gatherings both on the job and outside the job.

The total tech and product team consists of 20 people.

The product development team plan tasks in bi-weekly sprints. We keep the sprint up-2-date with daily stand-ups. Longer term planning is done in an OKR process.

Typically, new features are developed as A/B experiments to evaluate the effect on business and usability. With 15,000 new sign-ups every day, we measure the results of experiments fast and decisions on further development are based on facts.

Learning and failing fast is part of the company’s DNA, so everybody takes responsibility for his or her daily work by testing deliveries before passing them on and evaluate the quality of work at the same time.

SimpleSite has a clear goal not to let customers experience errors in the solution as it affects thousands of users by the minute.

Our solution is served from AWS and we are continuously moving all of our solutions to be handled by AWS services:
  • Core of the backend is developed in C#
  • Core of the frontend is developed in AngularJS and is moved to Angular 5 by end of May 2018
  • Customer data are stored in an SQLServer setup - moving slowly to AWS DynamoDB
  • Business data and tracking information are stored in RedShift
