Deluge On a Luge is an Australian based SaaS company that runs a business SMS and telephony app. Our app makes it easy for businesses to communicate with their customers via SMS/Whatsapp as well as making phone calls. Our customers are mainly located in the US.
About the role
Jeremy, the founder, is based in Australia and is struggling to keep up with demand in the US. He’s looking for someone to build new features, fix bugs and occasionally troubleshoot issues with customers when the level 1 tech support rep can’t solve it.
The key skills you’ll need are:
Nice to have skills
It would also be nice if you had experience with the following technologies (though it’s fine if you haven’t worked with them before - you’ll learn soon enough):
Customer support requirements
You’ll need to be available at least 4 hours per day in EST business hours (9am to 5pm EST). This is so that if there is a major outage/issue, you’ll be able to troubleshoot. Our goal is obviously to minimise the number of times this happens so you can focus on developing new features. Our team has been heavily focused on writing unit tests and webdriver.io tests to make sure new changes don’t cause regressions. Currently tech support takes up ~4hrs per week.
We will provide a salary of $3000 USD per month paid weekly.
The contract will initially be for 6 months.
You will work 40 hours per week though you are welcome to arrange your schedule as you see fit as long as you are available for 4hrs per day in EST as mentioned above.
We’re also open to part time. (Salary will be adjusted pro-rata)
This is a remote role.
About the team
There are currently three key team members:
We also employ several contract developers
As a small team, we have basically zero hierarchy. Anyone can talk to anyone. New ideas are encouraged. Jeremy loves it when people disagree with him. We’re big on learning. If there are courses you want to do, we’ll pay for it.
