  • Front-end Development

looking for an Automation and Interface Specialist to go into different business processes which are currently manual and figure out ways to automate these processes with given tools.

The key areas of focus in this role will include:

🔵 Creating, coordinating, and managing custom automations

🔵 Creating advanced forms via 3rd party low code tools, such as Airtable, Softr and Bubble

This is an exciting and dynamic role where you will have the chance to work with a highly skilled team while taking ownership in automation projects. You will have an opportunity to dive into all kinds of business processes and talk to the experts to identify their needs, work with (and learn from) the software development team to determine the solution architectures, and develop creative solutions to ease the lives of your colleagues by automating their manual workload.

More specifically, within this role, you will:

  • Create low-code front-ends (e.g., with Softr and Bubble) on top of Airtable databases to allow interaction with the data by the users
  • Automate manual workflows to process and move data (e.g., through Integromat/Make) to different places (e.g., Asana tasks, Google Drive files, emails, etc.)
  • Establish connections to APIs to read and write data between systems
  • Work with the operational and technical teams to analyse, define, and document requirements for data collection/verification, and process workflows and technical interfaces
  • Work and interact with the Software Engineering team members, and some members of the Operations team and the Executive team

As you join the company during the onboarding process, you will go through the existing automation, and you will be introduced to the existing processes so that you can start thinking of ways to automate them. You will collaborate closely with the software development team, and you will iterate on a new project as soon as possible.

To excel in this role, you need to have:

  • 2+ years of experience with Airtable, and Integromat/Make
  • 2+ years of experience with HTTP requests and APIs
  • 2+ years of experience with low-code front-end tools
  • University degree e.g., a Bachelor of Science in CS/IT
  • Highly organised, logical and structured thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Ability to manage multiple projects at the same time
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Eagerness to work within a fast-paced, remote, and distributed team environment
  • Drive to search for work and improvements that can be done instead of waiting for the tasks to be assigned

Brownie points for:

  • Experience with Softr/Bubble or other low-code front-end tools on Airtable
  • Knowledge of Quickbooks Online (QBO),, Expensify, Connectwise, Google Workspace, and/or Asana
  • Data extraction/ETL workflows experience
  • API development experience
  • DevOps experience
  • Knowledge of Python3 and SQL
  • Experience with Google Cloud Platform

What’s in it for you?

  • $1800 - $2500* per month for full-time
  • $900 - $1250* per month for part-time
  • Fully remote employment
  • Full-time or part-time position
  • Flexible working hours as long as commitments are honoured and communication abundant
  • Salary increases based on performance
  • Huge scope for project-based growth
  • Opportunity to go from task-ownership to project ownership-based on performance
