Backend engineer - Node.js

Our client is looking for a Software Engineer to join our founding team and make it the indispensable product for every community in the world.


We care deeply about user experience and ease of use and put significant focus on top-notch UI and interactions. We had enough of dealing with slow, unattractive, and clunky products. For this, we're looking for engineers who care about products and like to work on features from ideation to release, enhance existing features, and come up with entirely new creative ways to make our users more productive.


? In this role, you will:

  • Co-own the product - have high autonomy, and take responsibility where you see the need. Make yourself indispensable to the team. As an early engineer, you'll have a prominent voice in all engineering decisions. 
  • Innovate and iterate - you'll get to both try bold new ideas and refine & optimize the ones that work and are due for a second iteration. Listen to user feedback, and work with engineers together to come up with improvements and ship them.
  • Tackle A+ technical problems - we expect you to focus on the most important technical questions and solve them, with a focus on incremental and daily contributions to all parts of our product code base.
  • Wear many hats - we're a small team of generalists. You might add a new page to our marketing pages, set up an endpoint in our API (Node.js backend) or automate tedious tasks.


Our tech stack:

  • Front: Typescript, React, ReactQuery
  • Back: Node.js, Express, KnexJS, PostgreSQL, Redis
  • Infra: Heroku / AWS


? You'll be a great fit if:

  • You're based in Western Europe. We are based in France and we allow for full-remote work, but preferably in a nearby geographical area. Applicants outside of Europe are not a fit for the role.
  • You're product-minded - you have a sense of great user experience and feel when something is off. You care about performance and how the things you build make people feel. You add analytics to reason about changes in the app and proactively iterate.
  • You're a web technology enthusiast - you have 4y+ of experience working with Javascript, and ideally Typescript. You enjoy working in the React ecosystem and are looking for ways to write modularized code. Node.js is known to you and you have successfully used them in production.
  • You're self-motivated and self-managing - you can break down big projects into small deliverables. You care about the outcome and take a pragmatic approach to deliver it. You value feedback, but don't need to be told what to do, and are proactive in picking up work yourself.


? Our benefits

  • Highly competitive salaries and a very attractive equity program.
  • Fitness & health stipend - your health is important. We offer fully subsidized health care and gym membership or other physical activity.
  • Remote friendly - work from the office in the heart of Paris, from villas with other team members (we are in South Europe right now), or from the place that inspires you the most.
  • Personal learning budget - yearly learning budget for courses, learning material, and conferences.
  • Swap public holidays - swap days off according to your values and beliefs.
  • Meal vouchers - we contribute to your lunch expenses via meal vouchers.
  • 6 weeks of paid vacation - get a long vacation to recharge and rejuvenate. Go on a summer adventure and bring back some stories!
  • The tools you need - Macbook M1. Screen, Keyboard, and the material you need to be productive and happy at work.
