Upcoming (www.upcoming.nl) - Amsterdam, The Netherlands (No remote, but we'll relocate you) - Full Stack Software Engineer

===== About us =====

Upcoming is a Dutch 'listicle' website (a listicle is an article consisting of a list of funny/informational/sentimental/whatever stuff). We've been growing continuously since we launched in 2013, already reaching 15% of the Dutch population with zero € spent on marketing. We're (an independent) part of Telegraaf Media Groep, one of the biggest publishers of The Netherlands.

===== Abour our tech stack =====

We use python in the backend (Flask, Celery+RabbitMQ), and manage the frontend with Jinja2, jQuery, LESS and Grunt; persistence is done with MySQL and Redis. The deployments are automated, in a Continuous Integration environment. Our backend is developed in-house, with state-of-the-art publishing related features such as:

- Monitoring of 1000's of rss feeds from news websites, in order to detect trending articles all around the globe.

- Advanced analysis of our own articles' metrics, for automatically promoting them among our publication channels (this is aimed at maximizing virality).

- (Bayesian) Headline and thumbnail A/B testing

- Highly scalable click-through-rate optimizer, presented in a workshop of the ACM Recommender Systems conference in Hong Kong in 2013.

Since we're part of a big media group, some of these tools are now being used by other teams, reaching tens of millions of users every day.

===== What we're looking for =====

We'd love to bring on board a pragmatic developer. A CS degree helps, but relevant web experience is more important for us. We'd love it if you have spent some time across the whole stack, but if you consider yourself "just" a frontend or backend developer, we're willing to hear you out as well.

===== What we offer =====

- A perfect balance between working on innovation projects and “regular” web development, both with short and iterative development cycles.

- The flexibility and dynamism of working in a startup, with the strong stability of being part of a big company.

- An international environment, with people from all over the world (UK, Italy, Romania, Argentina, Brazil, Iran, and more)

- Thorough relocation assistance, regardless of where you’re coming from

- A competitive salary

- 25 vacation days

- Amsterdam! You’ll be living in one of the most beautiful and cosmopolitan cities in the world.
