Our 10+ year journey with GWT (+ job opening)

Dear all, 

I hope this email isn't too off-topic, but I wanted to share an opening for a job on our team with a large GWT component.

The first version of our product, ActivityInfo, a data collection and analysis platform for humanitarian relief, was built with GWT, GXT and Google Gears in 2009 and seriously would not have been possible without GWT. 

In 2018, nearly 10 years later, we looked at the amazing js ecosystem and considered moving to Typescript or Elm.

Instead, we decided to keep the bits that we loved about GWT: the typesafety, code-reuse with the server, i18n, code splitting, linkers, and the amazing compiler, and add SCSS for styles and our own port of Preact + rxJava-like reactivity for dom manipulation using Elemental2.

Three years after the start of ActivityInfo 4.0 we couldn't be happier with the choice, and are more productive than ever. 

If you're an experienced GWT developer that would enjoy the challenge of a working on a modern GWT codebase, I hope you'll consider joining our team!
