full-time Whisbi Barcelona

Whisbi is the global #1 provider of a mobile-first digital commerce platform that combines live video, chat, voice and chatbot functionalities to increase sales conversion and boost live engagement. Whisbi won the GLOMO AWARD at the Mobile World Congress 2018 for the Best Mobile Innovation for Mobile Commerce.

At Whisbi, we work in an Agile environment, developing our solution using Scrum, with a team organized in Squads and Chapters, based on the methodology applied by companies like Spotify.

Our technological stack is built on the separation of Front-End and Back-End, with Front-End modules built with Angular and deployed on CDNs, and Back-End modules built as micro-services with NodeJS and TypeScript, running in Docker clusters.

We use Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment thanks to Jenkins, in order to run automated test suites at every step of the development process and deploy new versions at the end of every development sprint, providing rolling releases of our product to our users.

All of this makes Whisbi an attractive technological environment, where every member of the team can teach and learn, and every voice gets heard when it comes to how to improve our product.
