Join the local.ch Engineering Team

We are local.ch, Switzerland's official phonebook directory and on our way to become much more than that.

Open positions:

The Agile Engineer

We have many different projects and teams at local.ch. From web to mobile and desktop, we combine a mix of agile practices, collaboration and code reviews to get things done. Developers work closely with product owners and designers, so engineers are truly part of the whole product development process. Teams work together and play together, in a cross-functional way, to break "bubbles" and silos.

Best Practices

We believe in convention over configuration, iterative development, design-first, clean APIs and peer code reviews. We ♥ testing. We're hackers, engaged by things like Open Data, embedded hardware and hack day projects.

Great Teams == Great Results

We have small teams of A-players who like to solve challenging problems. We're really into visualizations and analytics, and enjoy playing with Graphite and have several infoscreens around the office. We believe in learning and coding together, we're not afraid of new tools or new techniques. We like a simple release process and enjoy focusing on one thing at a time.
