Senior Backend Engineer

Job Description

About you

We’re hiring a Senior Backend Engineer to join our founding team. You will be working closely with our CTO, Charles, to shape both the team and platform while we get ready for scale.

You like to get things right, a pragmatic perfectionist who will continuously shape our application architecture and make it ready to scale. You understand the right balance between code readability, simplicity, development speed, performance, and maintainability. You're well-acquainted with typed NodeJS codebases and preferably these technologies: GraphQL, Apollo, Postgres, Redis, ElasticSearch, websockets, microservices, event-driven architecture.

TheyDo is a fully remote SaaS B2B organisation, pioneering a brand new category in software: Customer Journey Management. In December we announced our ‘Series A’ funding round, at €12m. Our angel investors include executives from Intercom, Miro, and Calendly. We serve enterprise customers such as IBM, Cisco and Atlassian. We’re a small but mighty team, and in 2023 we will triple our headcount.

Your assignment

Your top priority is shaping the architecture of our product and getting it ready for scale. You'll work on some of the technically ambitious projects we have planned. Some examples currently on our roadmap:

  • Realizing integrations with a wide ecosystem - Miro, Jira, Google Analytics, etc.
  • Implementing the first microservices
  • Enabling version control on all user data
  • Improving real-time collaborative functionality. Using fractional indexing, last-writer wins and other techniques to provide a superior user experience

We're looking for

  • An ambitious engineer with several years of experience working on back-end architecture and design. Previous experience at a scaled product is a big plus
  • An engineer who wants to be at the foundation of a fast-growing team
  • A product-minded engineer that wants to understand how people use our product and why.
  • An asynchronous worker who organises and documents their work
  • A clean coder who writes well-structured and maintainable code

What we offer

  • Competitive compensation and 'Series A' pre-IPO equity - we like to give our employees ownership with our stock package. When TheyDo succeeds, we all succeed
  • Fully remote working with flexible hours - we're staunch advocates for autonomy and flexibility. Work from anywhere in Europe, + or - 2 hours CET
  • Company events - we regularly connect in-person to strategize, reflect or simply have fun. Our most recents offsites were held in Belgium and the Netherlands
  • Flexible holiday days - we love what we do, and equally love taking a break. We expect you to take a minimum of 25 days per year (in addition to public holidays)
  • Professional development reimbursement - we value learning and are happy to support you with books/conferences/courses that will benefit you in your role
  • Mental health/wellness reimbursement - we support you in looking after your body/mind (meditation, mindfulness, or a yoga/gym membership, up to €30 p/m)
  • Paid parental leave - we'll provide financial support and time off for you to bond with the newest little members of your family (6 months for the primary carer, and 6 weeks for the secondary carer - fully paid)
  • Home office or co-working support - we offer everyone the choice of home office reimbursement (one-off, up to €1,000) or co-working support (up to €300 p/m)
  • Latest Tech & Tools - Macbook Air, Pro or laptop, we want you to have the equipment that you’re most comfortable with. We use tools such as Gather, Slack, Notion, Loom, and G:Suite to work collaboratively and asynchronously
  • Continuous growth of our benefits package as we continue to grow in size

To summarise, we value work-life harmony backed by personal freedom under responsibility. Sounds like fun? We're looking forward to having you join our team.
