Do you want to make a contribution towards a sustainable future? Do you want to be a part of a start-up and solve real problems?
Then you're our perfect fit!
Normative makes the environmental and social cost of every purchase in our economy transparent. Our goal is to contribute to a faster transition towards a sustainable society by helping companies get better at measuring their sustainability. This gives companies the incentives and the guidance required to drastically reduce their environmental footprint.
The product team connects life cycle assessment calculations to activities in companies. Our customers entrust us with intricate details about the activities within the company, and in return we continuously help them become transparent about their externalities through analytics dashboards and reports, on the web and through API services. Today we're a small team but are looking to grow.
As a senior backend developer on this team, you will build the business logic and protocols that allow us and our partners to reliably present sustainability calculations. Users find us on the web and through partner integrations. You will develop Typescript-based microservices and work with many services and underlying technologies core to our product. You have an urge to get to solve the actual problems and strive to understand where the customer is coming from.
