Why Is Fighting Spaghetti Code Important?

We believe that code should do two things: work and be beautiful. Spaghetti code does neither. If you've ever lost your temper because of a software crash. An unexpected error that should have been expected. A program or device not doing what it is supposed to do. Or taking over a vacationing colleague's project that was a pain to even read, you're a spaghetti code victim. And it's revenge time.

With limited programming experience, you require close supervision. You are eager to learn and don’t give up easily.

1,600 EUR–2,000 EUR

+ 15% Equity (after 1 year)

Senior

You require no supervision implementing even the hard parts of the software. You routinely lead junior colleagues and actively participate in design & code reviews.

Team Lead

You are capable of leading the biggest of projects. You think of costs, benefits, and risks of any decision, even a bad one. You discuss, design and write documentation before writing a single line of code. If a proper software architecture doesn't pull its weight, you advocate for a 'quick and simple' solution.

4,000 EUR–5,000 EUR
