You will be part of our growing US engineering team as our technology organization expands beyond our predominantly Swedish-based engineering team. Your product and technology leaders are largely based in the US.

We’re looking for your help across our entire technology stack. Skill, aptitude, and cultural fit are valued above experience in any individual technologies/languages, but if you have knowledge in any of the following disciplines, you will be ahead of the curve:

You’ll bring your projects from initial conception through all the cycles of development: from project definition to development, debugging, initial release and subsequent iteration. You’ll also take part in shaping the architecture of the product, including our deployment infrastructure, to fit the growing needs of the platform.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Is enthusiastic about building complex software through great design and practice
  • Has knowledge of professional software engineering practices & best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
  • Will be excited about collaborating and communicating closely with teams and other stakeholders
  • Welcomes feedback and constructive criticism
  • Is comfortable sharing ideas and thoughts to improve the platform and development processes
  • Has experience building and managing scalable production web applications
  • Can mentor junior engineers, and help them develop professionally

Some of the main responsibilities of this role will be:

  • Take lead on the development of features and improvements across the platform
  • Plan and execute large scale projects together with other senior engineers
  • Actively participate in the code review process with other engineers to ensure quality and completeness
  • Work closely with the product and design team to properly scope and define projects and tickets
  • The position is full time. Applicant interested in full-time contracting work will not be considered at this time.

What we offer:

  • Collaborative and developing work environment
  • Flexible hours and location
  • Health, dental, and vision coverage
