We’re hiring a Node.JS Backend Developer!

At Sweet Mustard, we’re keen on working with young and passionate people. Since innovation is part of our DNA, you’ll get the opportunity to continuously improve and evolve your skills as a Node.JS Backend Developer.

As a Node.JS Backend Developer at Sweet Mustard, you’ll get the opportunity to translate user stories into digestible APIs. You’re proud of your code and are eager to share it with the world. You’ll get the opportunity to learn new skills and share your knowledge with our colleagues. You’ll get to deliver a carefully crafted and tested backend. As we work in a constructive environment, you’ll get the chance to review code from your colleagues to provide them with helpful feedback so we can all learn from each other.

What you got vs. what we need

  • You have a good knowledge of the Node.JS ecosystem and follow its release cycles, so you can apply the latest and greatest features of the platform.
  • You know your way around express or similar frameworks.
  • You are fluent in TypeScript and all its features.
  • You have experience in working with databases, both relational and document based DBS’s.
  • You can setup a Node.JS backend project from scratch. You know how to structure your project(s), making it easy to navigate for your colleagues and our customers.
  • You are a master in development tools and the JavaScript toolchain (webpack, npm and/or yarn,...).
  • You have experience in writing tests for your code and have good knowledge of Jest or similar frameworks.
  • You’re able to collaborate with Developers and you have previous experience in working in an Agile environment.
  • You can work in a constructive environment where you review code of your colleagues and provide them with helpful feedback.
  • You have an entrepreneurial, creative mindset and like to take part in a growing talent community.
  • It’s good to have a Bachelor degree in ICT or similar, but the most important is your skillset, ambition and drive.

At Sweet Mustard, we’ll compensate you for your skills, enthusiasm and your contributions to our team!

  • A competitive salary and compensation package: an absolute must for IT professionals.
  • A chance to make an impact by working on challenging and innovative products and services: with our other Sweeties by your side, you’ll be both challenged and supported by our digital experts!
  • A team of passionate people and an inspiring talent community: you’re becoming part of not just any team, but a strong team of ambitious professionals aiming for innovation and continuous improvement. We’re happy to share our knowledge with you and are delighted that you can share yours.
  • An optimal working atmosphere in a trendy office loft at the center of Kortrijk, away from traffic: you’ll come for the view, but stay for the awesome Sweet Mustard colleagues surrounding you at this amazing Kortrijk-based office. And don’t forget the free ‘sandwiches at the office’ at lunchtime. With or without sweet mustard.
