Why us

You’ll never feel like a replaceable cog in the machine at this company. We value your opinion and experience, so if you have something to add let's talk about it! Our strong culture of failure helps us stay up-to-date with new ideas while also helping us identify areas where things can be improved upon--you'll find that from day one there is always work being done by passionate people who care deeply for their craft (and each other).

We're excited to meet in person twice a year at our onsite, as well as during conferences and events! We love learning from each other so we continue that through bi-yearly personal development talks. Plus, if you want feedback about what's going well or where things can be improved - just let us know with regards to how your performance is going every month 🙂

As a member of our engineering team, you will be responsible for keeping the Kubernetes clusters running and healthy. You also have an important role in developing the product itself - working closely with Platform Engineers who are building out services across all key areas related to this technology platform.

When you join the tribe, it's not just your voice that gets heard. You stand up to be counted in everything we do and when our quarterly hackathons come around all of our work together on out-of-the-box projects with room for innovation because even these events can serve as a hive sprint if need be!

We're excited about the opportunities that our platform brings. We empower developers to ship great products, and are a diverse (fully remote since 2014) yet experienced team with headquarters in Cologne!
