We are looking for a web developer

Come join our team to work on big, exciting projects!

We are Marzee Labs and we make big, challenging projects thrive. Our area of focus is the web, or anything that lives online. We started off in 2012, and are now operating in Porto and Setúbal (both in Portugal) and London (United Kingdom), too.

We are proud to bring top notch technical skills to big, international projects, as well as to Open Source technologies, contributing, participating, and getting involved first-hand with the community. Our flows have been welcomed in big companies in countries such as France, Germany, UK, US, Spain, Portugal and Belgium. Our clients range from CRG (European research center in Barcelona), ARTE (franco-german television) to BEN (product placement giant), not forgetting online whisky shops and conference websites. We also collaborate with local entities, such as Universidade Católica, and happily participate in smaller scale projects.

Our vision is to embrace any challenging work that breathes Web. We do not snob any project, but we always seek to get involved in projects that are impactful for our clients and interesting for us. We fully commit to make things work, always with the highest tech standards and top quality services. In parallel, we run our own little "Labs" (as our name says) where we learn new tech, share interesting intel with the team, test concepts and create new products, all of it bringing value to the company, but also - and especially - all the people that are part of us, as individuals.

As we expand, we need more talented, exciting people to join us.

We are looking for a full time, web developer to join our distributed team [in Porto or Setúbal] to work and grow with us, by working on large-scale technical projects as well as periodic releases and other technical matters with talented folks.

What you will be doing:

  • Working closely with external development teams and management to help steer the technical direction of the projects Marzee Labs are involved in.
  • Taking part in cool, big, international and technically interesting projects.
  • Developing mainly using JavaScript, but also other cool open-source technologies.
  • Learning how to be a better developer, way beyond the code you produce.
  • Exploring exciting new web technologies, outside of the scope of client work, and bringing back value to the team.
