Tech at Mindvalley

Due to the unique environment that Mindvalley has in terms of having its own ecosystem of applications that support the business, working with us in a technical role is a great challenge.  

We generally look for attitude over aptitude when it comes to technical skills, a history of proven execution and excellent root cause analysis problem solving skills are things that we value highly.

We predominantly build apps with an nginx, Unicorn, Ruby, Redis and PostgreSQL architecture on Linode so experience with any of these will be valuable to us.

The technical ecosystem is both interesting and broad covering systems that deal with:  

  • Payment processing (both check-out and backend)
  • Media streaming (live and repeated)
  • Serving websites to large audiences (high concurrency)
  • In-house customer service tools
  • Financial reporting
  • Shipping & logistics
  • E-mail handling (sign-ups, cohort analysis etc)
  • Authentication, identification & user data collection/analysis
  • In-house Textile based CMS for large number of sites

Any technical role will provide a good mix of development work, systems thinking, problem solving, business analysis with a large dose of teamwork. 

Engineering Culture

We run functional teams based on the SCRUM methodology and are a fairly Agile environment, with 2 week sprints and teams with a minimum of 2 developers (preferably 3) plus a Platform Owner. Sprints cannot be interrupted and work is planned out well in advance to keep stress down to a minimum.

We have a focus on scalability, stability and code quality and we use tools such as Circle-CI and Code Climate to help with that.

Other stuff we do/you will encounter:

  • Line by line code reviews for every pull request on Github, this maintains code quality and keeps everyone in the loop & learning.
  • At least 2 people working together on every project (collaborating not pairing)
  • Full test coverage for everything important
  • Constant learning (we have learn days, and unlimited book budget, conference/training budget etc.)

The Role

Seeking an Awesome iOS Developer who can craft awesome native iOS Apps.

In addition to having excellent technical skills, you have a keen interest in the latest technologies and have a feel for user experience.

You are more than just a developer, someone who understands that a great app must do great things yet is simple and intuitive. You are pixel-perfect, knowing that a pixel to the right is not merely a pixel to the right. You understand that an organized code with the well-applied design patterns will make a difference. You are fascinated about technology and eager to learn everything you can, applying the coolest and most amazing techniques there are. You add a "magic touch" that will dazzle your users.

You'll be responsible for building exciting applications and implementing flows and mock-ups provided by UX and Design teams. Apart from having the ability to write performant and clean code with great attention to detail, you also contribute with solutions and suggestions for improvement as you work closely with Product Development and Marketing teams.
