  • Communicate your ideas, engage with different teams, and encourage collaboration
  • Ensure all tasks are completed to the required quality standards
  • Take ownership of your commitments and do what it takes to fulfil them
  • Be fluent in English (official language in the office) and Spanish.

Last but not least, company culture, and development culture, in particular, are extremely important to us, so your ability to fit well into them will be taken into account when assessing your candidacy.

Note: If you are interested in what we offer, you are passionate about software development and you are certain that you can contribute to the team, please do not hesitate to apply to this job even when you don’t tick all the boxes listed above.

Great, I believe I am the right individual and I would like to know more about Sweetspot.

Sweetspot Data Solutions is an Asturian start-up which develops its own software product. Our platform was created with the aim of supporting large organisations to automate information delivery through high-level automated dashboards and facilitate decision-making based on data.

Our offices are in the very center of Gijón (Plaza del Instituto), and we have collaboration and partnership agreements with multiple digital agencies in more than 15 different countries. From Sweetspot we serve Fortune500 clients such as Bosch, Green Bay Packers and BBVA, to name a few.

We enjoy working from our office but working remotely is a feasible option. We are glad to offer a flexible schedule so that everyone can take advantage of their moments of maximum personal productivity. Vacations can be booked when desired and days-off from bank holidays can be also used as per your preference.

Last March Sweetspot was acquired by ClickDimensions and, thanks to this successful event, our intention to consolidate our company as a cutting-edge center of excellence and development has been widely reinforced. With this acquisition, our offices in Gijón are added to the ones ClickDimensions already has in the United States, The Netherlands, Tel Aviv and New Zealand.

We have proudly built a growing and sustainable business from Asturias and our firm commitment is to continue doing the same in the future.

Sounds very appealing, what will I find if I decide to join your team?

These are the 7 company principles we care about:

  • Environment: We promote an environment where we can give the best of each of us. If something is not working for you, we are eager to receive your feedback and work to address it, aiming at a comfortable work setting for you.
  • Transparency: We have nothing to hide so we talk about anything publicly and when important decisions that affect the whole company are taken, everybody’s feedback is appreciated.
  • Collaboration: We are open and collaborative, we help each other and we listen and respect all opinions. This is an important part of the game and necessary to grow as a good and strong team.
  • Trust: We treat all staff as adults. This means that we trust that each person will work hard whenever and wherever they want in the same way that the team as a whole does it.
  • Inclusive culture: In a global working environment, a diverse team represents the working ethos of the company and holds the key for its successful growth. That’s why we firmly believe in equal opportunities and continuously promote a workplace that is safe and inclusive for everybody. An inclusive culture focus on empowering values to promote healthy discussions, open-mindedness, non-judgmental attitudes and appreciation of new perspectives to bring a heightened level of work satisfaction.
  • Work: We do not work with impossible deadlines, what's more, we define the deadlines ourselves based on the estimates made within the team. We want all our employees to be happy and comfortable with the work they do.
  • Life: All of us have a life outside of work, and using our time in an efficient manner is the secret recipe to enjoy a good balance between work and personal life. We do not value long working hours, nor do we want anyone working more than what is stipulated.

Ok, very good, but what is expected of me?

Sweetspot is a SaaS platform which has web and mobile app versions. You will be working on new web and mobile features, new 3rd party data source APIs integrations, or fixing bugs. Other tasks could be related to UX, performance, scalability or security.

We code mostly in Ruby and Javascript. We use Git as our version control system and we expect you to be familiar with Capistrano, Docker and the Amazon Web Services platform. In the front-end we use Backbone.js, but knowledge of other JS frameworks will be also taken into account. In the persistence layer we use MySQL, PostgreSQL and BigQuery.

We use agile methodologies (Scrum) and we do 1-week sprints, with its corresponding retrospective, sprint planning and sprint review. We care about good software development practices so code quality is a must for us and it’s ensured via Code Reviews. On Thursdays, we have a Book Club where we gather around and talk about programming books.
