Tight

Join our team

Hausmanns gate 16, Oslo

Tight is the company we always wanted: a close-knit product team behind some of Norway’s most exciting projects, with the trust and freedom necessary to do great work. We're now hiring talented people to join our team of four.

Who we're looking for:

Tight was started by Gjermund and Anders in 2009 with a shared goal: make apps & websites that look great and work even better. Removing the barriers between designer and developer has been key to executing at the highest level, and has struck a chord with our clients – be it ambitious startups like UIP (Oslo City Bike), or Norway’s biggest newspapers.

As one of us, you’ll join a talented team that work on products used by hundreds of thousands every week. The distance from idea to deployed code is short, and you’ll have plenty of influence on how our projects evolve. We never see things as 100% done, and use this feeling to constantly improve and iterate on our work.

These are the people we’re looking for:

Designer

As a designer at Tight, you’ll be using your experience from UX and visual design to make elegant, simple interfaces that solve problems. Aesthetics are a big deal to you, yet you don't go overboard with effects. Designing for a responsive website or native app doesn't matter – you’re well aware of the strengths and weaknesses of different platforms.

To prove all this, you have a strong body of work that demonstrates your design skills and the thought process behind it. Tools like Sketch, Illustrator and Photoshop are like an extension of your hands and mind, and since execution is everything, you’re ready to get your hands dirty with the occasional HTML & CSS.

Experience with prototyping tools and motion graphics is a plus, but not a requirement.

Frontend developer

Being responsible for what our audience sees and interacts with is pretty damn important if you ask us. You know the ins and outs of CSS and have a good grasp of client-side JavaScript. Since you’re probably not a huge fan of writing plain old HTML, a templating language like Slim, Haml or Jade should sound like a sweet deal. Frameworks like Bootstrap can be a good fit for a quick admin interface, but you know that custom is the way to go, and have the patience to go that extra mile.

At Tight you’ll most likely be writing HTML through Slim, CSS through Sass, and JavaScript through … uhm, Javascript 💪 We warmly welcome whatever design or backend experience you may have.

Backend developer

You enjoy programming, and you know how to build and maintain stuff on the web. Learning new things is a welcome part of the day, but nothing beats the feeling of getting in the zone with familiar tools. Code that’s easy to test is a thing of beauty.

Most of our projects are based on the same technologies, so you should be familiar with the following (or something similar):

  • Ruby on Rails
  • PostgreSQL
  • Redis
  • Heroku
  • Git & GitHub

Experience with native app development is a huge plus, but not a requirement.
