Jobs


Want to work on the future of customer relationship? Want to be part of an international remote team? Come work with us on Fred! What is Fred? Read about it in the About page.


Fred is still in development and we have to launch it in 3 months. All positions are for remote freelancers. There are weekly sprints, but you have to report and commit daily. Work time is flexible, as long as you deliver! We use Slack, Trello and TeamworkPM. Also all positions will turn to remote full-time positions, so you may be part of our team full-time after this initial launch – if you want to, not mandatory 😉

All jobs are described briefly because they are just like that – no bullshit and no strings attached. We are completely against long, boring and copy pasted job descriptions, we are very pragmatic people. And we don’t care about whether you graduated or not. As long as you are experienced for the position.

If you are interested, for any of the jobs, send an email to jobs@fredapp.com.br with your portfolio (PDF, website, video, app links, etc.), your Skype ID and a cover letter describing your overall experience related to the position. We don’t plan to allocate the same person on more than one position, except for the UI design position and Frontend developer position: if you can take care of both, please let us know. We are from Brazil, but you can be from anywhere in the world! The team speaks English.

ATTENTION: due to the nature of these positions (insane crunch time and deadline), we are looking only for experienced folks, there is no space for learning the language or framework while doing the job. While we even do that ourselves, the time is not now. Anyway e-mail us anyway so we can talk on future non senior positions :)
