WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We’re looking for senior engineers to lead the development of our backend architecture. We need engineers who think high level but are willing to get their hands dirty in the code. Being passionate about team mentoring is important, as well as having a focus on building a better developer experience for other engineers.
This role pays a range of:
EUR 4650-6000 gross for an employment contract
EUR 5500–7200 for a B2B contract
The challenges and learning opportunities are endless. We’re building a complete end-to-end platform for agencies to manage their business. Check out a live demo of our resource planning module.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU
Top of the market salary and stock options grant in a fast-growing SaaS business
A well organized and relaxed working environment
Interesting product and technical challenges (why use Jira if you can build a better one yourself?)
