Remote Low-Code Developer, Client Solutions
Rarely Decaf (Remote) 🇺🇦
As a Low-Code Developer at Rarely Decaf, you'll play a pivotal role in transforming clients' business requirements into tailored web applications using state-of-the-art no-code and low-code development platforms.
You'll work closely with our founder (👋 Hi! You can learn more about me here), Product Manager, clients, UX/UI designer, and fellow developers to manage the process of turning businesses processes into bespoke web applications, making a tangible impact on our clients’ businesses.
As one of Rarely Decaf's pioneering Low-Code Developers, you'll contribute to shaping our development processes and culture, enjoying the autonomy to chart your own career trajectory within our growing company. Possible future directions include exploring opportunities such as Technical Lead or Technical Product Manager.
We understand that our tech stack represents a new approach to development. Nonetheless, we expect all great candidates to have explored these tools, showcasing initiative, curiosity, and resourcefulness. Recognizing that great candidates might have limited experience with these tools, we offer a paid, part-time "apprenticeship" experience for this role that lasts 4 to 6 weeks, focusing on learning these platforms. The expectation is that you learn while working on client projects. We've found experienced full-stack developers typically need only 4 to 6 weeks of part-time commitment to use Xano and WeWeb proficiently.
As a Low-Code Developer at Rarely Decaf, your primary role will be to collaborate with our Product Team, which includes Product Managers, Senior Developers, and UX/UI Designers, to transform business requirements into visually appealing, highly functional, and easily scalable web applications using state-of-the-art no-code and low-code tools.
The specific responsibilities of this role include:
- Reviewing and interpreting product requirements, UI designs, and business logic diagrams to develop web applications using visual development interfaces.
- Engaging in proactive communication with the team to clarify business logic, data structures, and workflows as needed.
- Drafting API endpoints, business logic, database architecture, and front-end logical blueprints.
- Testing, debugging, and ensuring the smooth operation of developed applications.
- Investigating and resolving any application bugs or issues that arise.
In your day-to-day work, you will use tools like Whimsical, Figma, Xano, WeWeb, and ClickUp to manage sprints, development tasks, communication, and product requirements.
We welcome applicants from the Americas, Europe, and Africa to reflect our dedication to a diverse and geographically dispersed team while still having at least a few hours of overlap when needed.
