    Description

    We’re currently looking to strengthening our Growth Team with a JavaScript Developer - a crossover profile combining an interest and flair of user behavior, UX research, rapid experiments and conversions with a strong and up-to-date knowledge of major frontend languages and frameworks.
    What would be your role?

    Here at Casumo, we have our lovingly crafted and award-winning online casino product and a suite of bespoke tools to support us in being the best we can be. These are all constantly evolving through the combined creativity of everyone here. As part of the team, you will help guide this evolution in collaboration with a full stack team of developers and designers, while working closely with our content producers, marketing gurus, player ambassadors and anyone else who wants to get involved.

    You will join a small team focused on optimizing the user experience in the acquisition funnel, a business critical part of our product, in order to drive more conversions and help Casumo achieve more for less. But that’s not all - you’ll be touching many different areas of the product, with the common goal to drive conversions, engagement, retention and virality in order to grow the business. So put your growth hacker hat on, brainstorm with the team, build experiments, launch A/B tests, integrate new tools and have a relaxing beer at the office terrace on Friday!

    Who are you?

    You are a javascript developer who’s been working closely with multi-disciplined teams focusing on growth, CRO, UX and complex technologies. You love data, both in the shape of hunches and hard metrics. You find it equally interesting to dig into data, study user behavior and conduct user tests, as going into crunch mode and coding the perfect UI treatment to launch as an A/B test. You are an open-minded, honest and driven problem solver, who is not only hungry for more learnings but also able to spread knowledge and enthusiasm to others around you.

    Does this sound like you?

    • Looking forward to working in a small and fast-paced growth team crafting and launching experiments.
    • Cool words like UX, CRO and Growth Hacking don’t sound alien to you. You’re genuinely interested in these areas and maybe you’ve even been working in a team tackling these things before.
    • A curious cat, interested in how users perceive and use online technology and UIs.
    • Up-to-date and fluent in JavaScript.
    • Comfortable working with two-way data binding and single-page JavaScript applications (experience with Knockout is a plus). Eager to keep up to date.
    • Able to write consistent and valid stylesheets and markup which works across different browsers and devices.
    • Enjoy the challenge of finding the optimal compromise between user experience, monetary performance and artistic value.
    • Has a true interest that reaches beyond any course or education.
    • Independent and self-motivated. Idling is not your thing, you are a team-player and a self-starter.
    • Can create positive changes, without losing friends over the existence of semi-colons.
    • A jolly good sentient being.
