Scrivito was created in Berlin under the umbrella of Infopark AG, which was founded in 1994 as a software company providing CMS solutions. We fell in love with Rails in about 2007 – and since then we acquired extensive experience with developing Rails-based website infrastructure technologies. Infopark has customers and partners all around the world, employs about 70 people and is a privately held company. All of the founders are still working at Infopark.
We’re offering a modern working environment with flat hierarchies, lean structures and no fixed office hours. We're allowing remote work from everywhere using tools like Slack and Trello – your workplace is where your MacBook is.
We are not a chaotic startup with long hours of overtime, but rather prefer teamwork, clear structures and responsibilities – yes, we’re German :-). By the way, our external and internal communication is in English.
Usually, people stay with us for many years. We believe in a friendly, collaborative and educational working environment, but strive always for excellence.
Our office in Berlin is a well-designed place (take a virtual tour on Google Maps) where you can concentrate, work and learn from your colleagues. In case you decide to work for us in Berlin: It is an awesome, modern, tolerant city which is very affordable and offers a great deal of quality of life.
Wednesday is our breakfast day, on Fridays we often do public community learning though learning lunches and share our knowledge during our public power hours, which are streamed live for remote team members.
We don't care about formal degrees or where you've acquired your skills – university, code school, self teaching: everybody is welcome.

We are looking for a front-end web developer who can combine great design and programming know how with writing skills that will blow our socks off. To be more specific, half the time you will work within our projects and half the time you will work as a member of our editorial team blogging and creating content about our front-end technologies and practices. You will work closely with an agile team of top developers, designers, and other internal stakeholders to help bring the brand to life and keep our visitors up to date with changes and developments in our world as well as the Ruby and JS worlds alike.
If you think you have the chops to take on this role and work with some of the best and brightest from here in Berlin and beyond - get in touch because we want to hear from you today!
No Problem. We're open for hiring junior developers who might not have years of experience yet but are willing to learn and self-develop. You'll join a world class team with lots of opportunities to learn about the latest tools and technologies. Usually the folks who join us as students stay with us many years and take over important roles in our teams.
We burn for doing everything we can to help our customers – and we love our job. So if you feel the same way: We’re looking forward to get to know you!
Please send us your application via e-mail, preferably referencing your GitHub and Twitter profiles, and stating your desired salary.
