We're hiring

We’re looking for the following talented mates. Please if you have any general question about microapps, Málaga or the open positions, send an email to HR Manager: Olga Zalite at olga.zalite@microapps.com

Quick facts abut Spain and Málaga:

- Spain has the richest man in the world: Amancio Ortega Inditex (Zara) owner.

- Spaniards celebrate the New Year by eating 12 grapes, one for each bell strike of the clock.

- Spain produces more than 50% of all the olive oil produced in the world. And Jaen (pretty close to Málaga) is the most productive region in Spain.

- Málaga airport is the 4th in Spain in terms of passenger volume with 13.748.976 people travelling to and from Málaga in the whole 2014.

- Spaniards have 2 surnames. The first one is your father's one and the second one is your mothers one.

- Spain is a constitutional monarchy. BUT neither the constitution orthe  kings have been voted and democratically elected by a vast majoritiy of the young population. Not to say the 12 members of the Constitutional Court are totally politicized, so its impartiality is now cuestioned.

- Spanish, is the second most popular language in the world.

- Spain has 5 official languages: Spanish, Catalan (or Valencian), Galician, Euskera & Aranes.

- Spain's economy is the 13rd in the world out of a list of 193 countries (United Nations source).

- Siesta is a myth you should know about: Between the hours of 2pm and 5pm, Spain shuts down to allow the locals to rest after a long and hectic morning and prepare for the busy afternoon. But here at microapps we work from 9:00 to 14:00, we go for lunch and keep working from 15:00 to 19:00. That way we have the friday afternoon free, by working a total of 40 hours/week which is what labour law dictates.

- Public Health System is one of the best in the world. Companies are forced by law to pay for health coverage for any employee. If someone gets really sick s/he will always want to be treated in a public hospital instead of a private one. Curious eh!?

- Tortillas in Spain are not the same as tortillas elsewhere. You will not find corn or flour tortillas in Spanish dishes. In Spain, tortilla española refers to a very popular and delicious egg and potato dish. Spaniards use the word “tortitas” to refer to flour/corn tortillas.

- Spain is home to the world´s largest tomato fight: La Tomatina, celebrated every year in a village of Valencia.

  • Get onboarded. You’ll spend a lot of time learning about our products, building rapport with the product, marketing, community and sales teams, and building small features.
  • Start taking on projects of your own. You’ll take an idea and turn it into a prototype, talk to the community on Meta, pitch your project to the rest of the company, and run a detailed testing plan.

  • Developing go-to-market strategies with marketing and the sales team
  • Managing complex cross-functional projects

Our requirements:

  • Experience coming up with ideas for, building, and shipping web software
  • Experience managing products, even if your title was not “product manager”. You might have been a startup founder, a lead developer or designer passionate about user experience, etc., but you have some experience coordinating multiple people to get something done.
  • Strong UX skills and spec-writing skills
  • An understanding of the technical implications of what you ask the team to do
  • Excellent telecommuting skills.  Even if you work from one of our offices, many of our team members are remote
