foriio is a platform for creators to make their own portfolio page. Our mission is to “Empower individual creators” and we do everything we can to realize that missions as fast as possible. We are a Startup, which is passionate about Creatives and tackles interesting challenges and problems such as,
- Using massive no of data(Of Creators and Creative works) to create an algorithm
- Image analysis
- Jobs/projects and creators matching
Our development team uses English internally. However, many of our partner company engineers work primarily in Japanese, and so we’re looking for some sort of Japanese ability. You don’t need to be fluent with Japanese though, and we welcome people still learning the language to apply. You should be able to read documentation in Japanese (with the support of machine translation is fine).
Our response to COVID-19
We are currently working at the office on Monday and Friday, and working remotely from Tuesday to Thursday.
Considering the difficult international circumstances at this time, we are looking only for engineers already in Tokyo, Japan. For people already in the country, visa support is possible.
About the position
As a front end developer, you’ll work on our main app that is built with React. You’ll help to plan and develop new features, review other people’s code, fix bugs, help in technological and business decisions, and support the internal team.
Currently we are building a feature to allow people to request projects and talk directly with creators. So expect to see integrations with chat tools, matching algorithms, form builders, and a payment gateway, to name a few.
Our technology stack is:
- React / React Native for client applications
- Ruby on Rails as a Back End API
- PostgreSQL database
- Heroku for hosting
- Amazon Web Services in general
- Github for version control
For this position, you should have experience with a Single Page Application framework, and at least basic knowledge in developing apps with a similar stack to ours.
