*What is our purpose in this world?*

*events,efficient,easy*

Evendo redefines the way we plan and do events. Think “Booking.com for events” with a built-in planning tool on top, and an app-based assistant guiding participants through the actual events.

Evendo is the world’s first end-to-end event platform, facilitating effortless planning, streamlined booking, and the seamless execution of events, through its innovative and intuitive design. There is currently no identifiable match or competition to Evendo worldwide.

*The opportunity*
This is an exciting time in our history and we are now looking to scale quickly. For the right profile, it is a great time to join and be part of an amazing journey. We are looking for an enthusiastic, Senior Full Stack Engineer who will lead in building, scaling and managing the development of our core products: Core System, App and Web Site.

*The profile we are looking for*
This role is especially suited to someone who wants to be part of the founding team and influence the direction of the company.
You won't merely be handed specs: you'll be in charge of taking ideas from the whiteboard all the way through to them being live, tracking the results, and iterating to make them better. For this reason, this role is only suitable for someone who likes being closely involved in the product — what to build and how it will work, as much as the technical implementation itself.
You will be leading and managing the company’s technological vision, strategy and development. You will be expected to help in the preparation of presentations to the Board and lend a hand when needed to customer queries.
We are looking for a self-starter with a go-to attitude and plenty of initiative, an excellent communicator, including a proven ability to explain complex technical concepts clearly and concisely to non-technical people. Excellent problem-solving abilities are also important in the role.

*Main responsibilities*
*Software Development*
* involved in development, support and maintenance activities of internal/external web applications
* using various techniques and tools, deliver strategic technical solutions to match business requirements and project life cycle deliverables
* provide structure to development activities following proper SCRUM / Agile methodologies

*Team Management*
* lead existing near-shore and offshore development resources to write high-quality code
* train and hire new development resources
* manage and delegate tasks effectively to team members and ensure the deliverables meet management’s tight deadlines

*Business Development*
* you will work with Evendo's founders directly to transform business ideas from user perspective into technical specifications and user stories
* you will recommend system solutions by comparing advantages and disadvantages of different approaches
* you will also work closely with operations and product teams, to build and scale back-end services
* you will be responsible for our products and services look and feel great for users on any platform

*Role requirements*
* experienced leader of development teams within a start-up environment
* entrepreneurial business leader, able to lead commercial meetings with investors, clients etc.
* hands-on development is a must
* .net proficiency, angular, node js
* Amazon cloud and elastic search proficiency
* no 9- to- 5 mentality

*Evendo is looking for a special “you”*
* you want to succeed and have a high personal drive.
* you are a go-getter and see opportunities rather than obstacles.
* you are a no-quitter and don’t stop until you have reached your goal
* you are aware of the consequences of producing sub-standard and you do not want to put your colleagues in a position, where they will have to deal with your mistakes
* you are aware that making a wrong decision is better than making no decision – and just as you will be ready to do whatever it takes to help and assist your colleagues if they fail, you expect the same from them
* you are a team player and you know that no company is stronger than the weakest link (and you don’t want it to be you).
* you have the guts to speak up and the courtesy to know when to shut up
* you keep your promises
* you are flexible and want to expand your horizon by learning new things all the time
* you raise your hand first when a new task is given to the team.

If you recognize yourself in the above and want to be a part of a journey conquering the world, we will be looking forward to welcoming you in Evendo.
