Job description
We’re looking for an experienced full-stack developer to join our growing team and be part of an exciting journey towards a better world. Empower is creating a platform to support the circular economy and we need more great people that can help make that happen.

In particular we are looking for someone with experience in Node.js and/or Go.

You will be a driving force behind our mission and will be given the opportunity to learn, grow and use new technologies. In short: this is a place to work where you will have a purpose, while having fun.

Full-time. Remote is not a problem, but if you live in Oslo we do have an office there.

About our company
We were founded in February 2018 with the idea that by giving plastic value, we could get it removed from nature. A bit like the bottle deposit system, but for all kinds of plastic!

We have gained amazing traction since we started, from being featured in Forbes and The Independent and invited to a panel at the first OECD forum on Blockchain to winning awards and being the only Nordic initiative among the 25 development projects/ SDG solutions selected to be showcased at Expo 2020 Dubai’s Global Best Practice Programme.

We have done cleanups and pilots in more than 15 countries, proving that this really does work! Now we are building a global plastic waste ecosystem to incentivize cleanup and track where the plastic ends – and ultimately bring most of it back to reuse!

Responsibilities and duties

Your day-to-day job might look like this:

  • Develop in Go/Node, Javascript/HTML/CSS (+ Vue, Web Components (Lit))
    • + Writing unit, integration and acceptance tests
  • Be part of technical, architecture and product decisions
  • Mentor other developers to make everyone better

In addition, you can expect to be involved with:

  • Strategic product discussions
  • Customer/user meetings and interviews

Some bragging points about our tech environment:
Modern! Cloud (GCP), CI/CD, feature flags, automated testing, and you get to learn and experiment with new tech all the time.
We have a strong user focus and practice a very lean process with as little overhead and boring meetings as possible.
We measure only on the 4 key metrics (on the team, not the individual) and we focus on continuous improvement.
If you are interested in Blockchain, you can do that as well here.
