Careers — Arthur Ventures
Full Stack Engineer - Content discovery at DataCamp
Leuven, BE

DataCamp is building the future of data science education. Our students get real hands-on experience by completing self-paced, interactive data science courses from the best instructors in the world, right in the browser. In fact, millions of students around the world have completed over 200 million DataCamp exercises to date. 

As our content library keeps on expanding, we want to ensure that our users can easily find the content that's most relevant to their learning journey. This is where the Content Discoverability squad comes in. Our goal is to make that learning journey as smooth as possible.  Some of our past work includes improving the performance and effectiveness of our search pages, developing our tracks feature, experimenting with course recommendations, and optimizing our navigation.

Currently, we are planning to redesign and optimize our home dashboard, one of the first pages people see when they log in. As part of that project, we will migrate our front-end to React, so that we can use the same design system which is already used by other applications within DataCamp. Therefore, we are looking for someone comfortable working both on the frontend and the backend, but with a strong focus on JavaScript (or TypeScript) development. The backend uses Ruby on Rails, but previous Ruby experience is not a must for this position.

Typically, we work in a data-driven fashion and set our goals according to the metrics we want to impact. As part of the team, you will be able to contribute to which goals we set as well as which projects and experiments we'll take on to reach those goals.

 

Our ideal candidate

  • Is passionate about delivering a great user experience, backed by maintainable code
  • Has experience in React/VueJS/Angular or single page applications in general
  • Can work both on the front-end and the back-end 
  • Has excellent communication and feedback skills
  • Can work well in a team, while also being able to take initiative and self-organize
  • Is result oriented

It's a plus if

  • You are passionate about data science and education
  • You are proactive and show initiative based on desired outcomes
  • You love taking ownership of a product or feature
  • You are experienced in test-driven development
  • You have experience with Docker, AWS, and CircleCI

What we offer

In addition to joining a creative and international start-up, you’ll enjoy:

  • Flexible working hours
