Bengler needs Developers

Bengler needs developers

Are you a skilled developer and somewhat compulsive about internet technologies? Bengler builds user facing social web services for the masses. Services that work under load and look good no matter which quirky devices they are viewed on. Services that are better because you use them with other people.

We have a lot to do these days and open positions for sharp and deft developers who can meet the challenge.

The technical

We used to make our web applications in Ruby on Rails, but new projects usually have JS on both the front and back ends. Instead of writing new business logic for each application, we’ve made a lightweight set of reusable services to take care of that - Pebblestack. We usually work with open source software and publish the reusable core of our projects. You can read through our code on Github.

Some semi-random keyworks on technology might be: Node.js, REST, JavaScript, Ruby, Sinatra, PostgreSQL and SASS/LESS. But we’re not particular about the technologies you are experienced with; smart people can learn anything. Being a small group of developers, we climb up and down the stack all day, so be prepared to learn many new things. Work experience is a plus, but we would like to see past projects you’ve built as well. We especially love preposterous side projects.

The rest

We are currently 11 people who enjoy coming to work. Everyone has a say in how and what the company should be. Our newly renovated office is an old warehouse for horse tram carriages on Thorvald Meyer's gate in the Grünerløkka district. It's not all about software. We’re building a machine shop, an automated microbrewery and we sport a healthy density of beards and hoodies.

We’ve been around since 1995, had a turnover in 2013 of 10 million NOK and offer competitive terms and benefits.
