We're reimagining how our technology can remain resilient and innovative. At Refined, we champion the quality of our work as much as the innovation it brings. We believe in setting realistic goals, valuing the craftsmanship of our software, and releasing features when they meet our high standards, not rushing them out the door.

In our technology landscape, we leverage the full potential of JavaScript, with Vue.js powering our front-end experiences and Node.js underpinning our back-end services. Our architecture includes REST API endpoints for seamless integration and communication, all supported by a robust Postgres database.

A word about our ways of working in the development teams


“Our streamlined and agile operations create a stable, stress-free product environment, fostering a truly distinctive work culture”, as described by the Engineering Manager, and your future team lead Ziad.

We stick to agile practices to support a team-focused way of working. Having a dedicated Test Automation Engineer means we can always count on our work being high-quality and smoothly integrated from start to finish.

Our release cycle is all about being agile. It's not something out of the ordinary, but it's what many aim for – and we've made it work really well. We like to get things out fast, releasing almost every day, so that anything that's ready goes live right away. But, we don't rush things at the cost of quality. Instead, we take extra time to make sure everything is just right.

Our name "Refined" really shows what we're all about. We put quality first, making sure every release is up to our high standards, without rushing – making our environment stress-free.

First, let's explore if you're the perfect fit for the role:

  1. Senior-level experience (5+ years): You must have relevant experience as a full-stack developer, adept in both frontend and backend aspects of development. This expertise not only ensures a comprehensive understanding of the entire development process but also includes a focus on meeting Non-Functional Requirements (NFRs) as part of the delivery.

  2. Curiosity and perspective: Beyond just filling knowledge gaps, you possess a natural curiosity that drives you to ask questions and challenge existing methods. Your ability to bring different perspectives, based on your experiences, contributes to innovative problem-solving and exploratory thinking, especially when addressing customer queries or urgent issues.

  3. Leadership and communication: You demonstrate basic leadership skills, capable of leading a team and having a significant influence on the product's direction. Strong communication skills are essential, enabling you to articulate ideas clearly, mentor others, and contribute positively to team dynamics.

  4. Team player with soft skills: Humility, adaptability, and a team-oriented mindset are key. You excel in structured thinking and showcase strong problem-solving abilities, which are critical in navigating complex challenges collaboratively.

  5. Technical proficiency: Your technical skill set includes proficiency in JavaScript-based front-end frameworks (React, Vue.js), Node.js, relational databases (particularly PostgreSQL), and working with REST APIs. A commitment to code quality, security, and performance aligns with our standards.
