The position

You'll be joining 100 engineers across Frontend, Backend, SRE and QA. We're organised into cross-functional development teams assigned to specific verticals.

This role is open for several teams, and we will define the exact team that you will be joining during the interview process based on the business needs and your preferences.

Regardless of the specific team, you will be working on building tools, APIs and integrations for one of our products.

Our backend is built with Elixir and Phoenix, with a PostgreSQL database. The monolith solution is hosted on AWS. We use continuous integration in Gitlab. Our front-end is written in React.

  • A lot of freedom to organize your work and life — you are not bound to daily standups, recurring meetings or other ceremonies.
  • Competitive salary, stock options, unlimited PTO and a set of perks and benefits.
  • A supportive and kind work environment where we would like you to challenge the dogmas and pursue innovation!
  • Strong team of experienced engineers who will support and facilitate your professional growth.

What you bring
