Open Positions

Do you love coding on the front-end, and have had some exposure to traditional back-end frameworks as well? Then here's your chance to use AngularJS on a large scale project in a friendly and fast-paced environment.

We're moving our entire product from "classic" web-based to REST, and re-imagining the entire front-end. We've hired two AngularJS developers already, and we're looking for an experienced AngularJS (m/f) developer to move even faster.

Do you love coding (Java, jQuery, Ruby, Python, Scala or the like) and did you work at least five years full-time on challenging projects? We need to talk! :) At Small Improvements you'll develop complex features in a friendly and fast-paced environment, you'll oversee our architecture, you'll mentor our more junior developers, and you'll gather feedback directly from some of our amazing clients too.

Have you just graduated in computer science, or do you have comparable skills? Do you love coding (Java, jQuery, Ruby, Python or the like), have you written your own pet projects since back at school, and have you worked for one or two companies part-time already? Then we have plenty of very challenging work lined up for you. Develop quality code in a friendly and fast-paced environment, and make our customers happy by creating usable and pretty features!

In addition to interesting uni projects (which we'll want to see) we expect you to have a long history in web development, and getting projects off the ground. Your own little portfolio website (or github account) to show off your coding skills is a must as well.

We're expanding our team of awesome customer success agents, and this is your chance to join a efficient yet fun and friendly team of distributed customer success agents. You'll help our customers when they have questions, you'll demo our product to evaluators online, you'll provide feedback to our development team — and you can work in your pyjamas if you like to, at least part of the time! :)

While distributed work comes with its own set of challenges, lack of team-work is not one of them. We communicate a lot through our intranet wiki, you'll join our weekly international team calls, and we often conduct customer demos and webinars in pairs of two so we can complement each other.

The work is fun and engaging, but you need to be somewhat organized to avoid getting derailed all the time. It's fine to work part time if you like, so this is perfect for anyone who has worked in a demanding full-time role before, and now needs to tone things down for a while.

Read the entire job description

Are you studying computer science or something similar, do you have a passion to develop great code (preferrably Java and jQuery, but Ruby or Python is fine as well), do you have the product gene, and have you basically been coding stuff since you were in junior high? We can help you put your coding skills to practice.

No previous "official job experience" required, and we don't expect a polished CV either. But we do expect you to have an online portfolio of all the things you've developed by yourself, as a hobby and for uni.

If you have no website yet, now is the time to create it, so you can show off your CSS and HTML skills too.

More about the student developer position

Programmierst Du seit mehreren Jahren als Hobby und kannst ein paar eigene Projekte vorweisen? Wir bieten fähigen Schülern/Schülerinnen Herausforderungen, die weit über den Informatik-Unterricht hinausgehen. Wir laden Dich ein bei uns ein Praktikum zu machen (1-3 Wochen), und wenn alles klappt kannst Du darüber hinaus in den Ferien oder als Nebenjob bei uns mitarbeiten.

Du arbeitest vom ersten Tag an "echten" Features mit, hilfst uns bei der Recherche, und entwickelst Prototypen für neue Tools die wir eventuell einsetzen wollen. Wir suchen Leute die sehr motiviert sind, daher ist uns wichtig dass Du eigene Projekte in einer OOP Sprache (Java, Ruby, Python, Go, etc) vorweisen kannst.

We offer between 1500€ and 2000€ referral commission for successful candidates, so do tell your friends! But, dear recruiters, we don't pay more than that, so please don't call us. We have never worked with outside recruiters, and probably never will. Thanks :)

Life at Small Improvements

We love what we do, and we also love to travel and learn new things. As an example, the entire company met in New York in October 2013 to celebrate success and brainstorm our new roadmap. But we also love the small things, meeting customers, decorating the office and attending local conferences and events. Check our video and slideshows for some impressions.

We work with some of the world's top companies. Here's a small selection of our clients: We work with their representatives on a daily basis, get feedback from their UI experts, and discuss technical details with their IT team. We demo our new features to their HR staff, and help them if they have any questions. Learn what they say about Small Improvements on our Customer testimonials page.
