Job description

At Mikaels Labs our aim is to help our employees enhance the products of our clients with the latest and best practices of the industry. These include optimized back-end systems using PHP/Python/Node.js, Front-end using JS Frameworks, and using Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence for making their products smarter and more productive. We want you to be able to be proficient in working across some of these technologies and be super-excited to learn the rest when opportunity presents.

Our challenges

We're looking for senior developers for our Pakistan office in Karachi who will help us grow the development team while making sure that we lead from the front in the technology space.

Our stack

We regularly try new tools, but the current stack is mostly PHP/Python/Node.js on the back-end and HTML5 & JS on the front-end. For Machine Learning, we’re currently comfortable with TensorFlow but are open to all sorts of experimentation that can outperform it. For database, we’re using MySQL and MongoDB.

These technologies vary from client to client, so be ready to learn and experiment :)

  • Writing non-blocking code, and resorting to advanced techniques such as multithreading, when needed
  • Creating custom, general use modules and components which extend the elements and modules of core AngularJS

  • Experience with building the infrastructure for serving the front-end app and assets
  • Architecting and automating the build process for production, using task runners or scripts
  • Documenting the code inline using JSDoc or other conventions
