Job Description

About HashiCorp

HashiCorp is a fast-growing startup that solves development, operations, and security challenges in infrastructure so organizations can focus on business-critical tasks. We build products to give organizations a consistent way to manage their move to cloud-based IT infrastructures for running their applications. Our products enable companies large and small to mix and match AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and other clouds as well as on-premises environments, easing their ability to deliver new applications for their business.

At HashiCorp, we have used the Tao of HashiCorp as our guiding principles for product development and operate according to a strong set of company principles for how we interact with each other. We value top-notch collaboration and communication skills, both among internal teams and in how we interact with our users.

Engineering at HashiCorp is largely a remote team. While prior experience working remotely isn’t required, we are looking for team members who perform well given a high level of independence and autonomy.

About the Role:

On the Consul team, we help organizations automate network configurations, discover services, and enable secure connectivity across any cloud or runtime. The customers and large community of users of our tools are operators, infrastructure engineers, and software developers that encounter novel performance, scaling, and usability challenges that we help them solve.

Consul started as an infrastructure management tool for service discovery and health checking, and has evolved to become a full-featured service mesh. You’ll be an active contributor to the service mesh ecosystem, following new developments in emerging technology and competitive offerings, looking for opportunities for product differentiation, and rethinking product architecture to meet new global scale and organizational demands.

In this role you can expect to:

  • Build and architect distributed systems for service connectivity focusing on AWS ECS and then expanding further to other AWS offerings.
  • Interface directly with internal teams, users and HashiCorp customers, as well as the larger Consul community.
  • Participate in user research studies and discussions with product managers and customers to better understand the network topologies, challenges, and constraints for which operators are trying to solve, and leverage those insights when approaching feature design and implementation.
  • Propose new functionality or substantive changes through written documents in an async process, describing the problem background, proposed implementation and example UX, then iterating on peer feedback collaboratively.
  • Own the full lifecycle of feature development from design through testing and release
  • Program mostly in Golang, learning from and contributing to a team committed to continually improving their skills.
  • Coach and mentor other team members within HashiCorp’s engineering teams

You may be a good fit for our team if you have:

  • Familiarity with service-oriented architectures, and ideally have worked on an infrastructure or platform team building internal tooling to deploy, connect and monitor them.
  • Empathy for the people operating, learning, teaching and supporting software you write, and consider their experience when making design decisions and performance, security or complexity tradeoffs.
  • Experience in a lower-level language like Go.
  • Awareness of the broader service mesh ecosystem and an interest in contributing to a full-featured product offering while reducing complexity and barriers to adoption for practitioners.
  • Curiosity for academic computer science research, particularly distributed systems papers such as Raft and Paxos variants, and enjoy learning more about the challenges of consistency at global scale.
  • You have expertise with AWS Cloud runtimes like ECS, Fargate, Lambda.

What is our hiring process like?

The below serves as a basic outline; we may choose to add or remove steps based on the information that we gather during the process.

  • Introductory Call with someone from our recruiting team.
  • First Interview with an Engineering Manager
  • Interview Loop with additional team members, with the following panel:
    • Technical Code Pairing interview
    • Code Review interview
    • Communication and Collaboration interview
    • Systems and architecture interview
  • If applicable, a final conversation with the Engineering Manager for the team you would be joining
  • Offer

We do our best to accommodate your programming language of choice for technical interviews.

About the Application Process:

Please note, as collaboration and communication are a critical aspect of how we work, a cover letter is a great way to provide a sample of how you communicate.

In your cover letter, please describe why you’re interested in working at HashiCorp, and what draws you to this role in particular. Specifics of your past experience that are relevant to this role are great to include, too.

HashiCorp embraces diversity and equal opportunity. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We believe the more inclusive we are, the better our company will be.

Job Description

About Cuvva

Cuvva is making car insurance radically better.

We’re creating truly flexible products that meet people’s real needs. Using lightning-fast technology to unlock better experiences and fairer prices for our customers, Cuvva is building the future of insurance every day.

Cuvva was the first UK company to sell hourly insurance through an app. Since then we’ve sold over 3 million policies and supported over 450,000 customers. We’re a world-class team of over 100 people, passionate about solving our customers’ problems. Join us.

Why work for Cuvva?

We don’t cut corners. We strive to do the right thing, even when that makes life more difficult for us.

We are customer centric and everyone in every area of the business–including our CEO & Founder Freddy–is expected to spend a few hours a month on customer support. This is so we all fully understand customer needs and how the app works! Here’s a blog post on our ‘Cops Club’.

We’ve nurtured an awesome team culture. We always speak up when we have an idea - but also know when to let go and get behind something else. And we’re comfortable giving and receiving honest feedback, and trying new ways of doing things.

We’re building a diverse team from different backgrounds, outlooks and experiences. Everyone is given a fair chance of getting a role at Cuvva. Even if you secretly don’t love insurance, trust us, you’ll love what we’re building.

About the role

You’ll work in one of our cross-functional product squads, helping the team achieve their goals - whether that’s building a new service in our backend platform, creating a new version of an existing API to deliver a new feature, or creating a CLI tool to automate something.

We work in a highly collaborative fashion, and maintain an open and transparent work environment. Engineers at Cuvva don’t just write code or implement against a spec. You’ll be expected and encouraged to take part in the entire product development process from problem-discovery to solution design, to implementation and rollout.

Each product squad autonomously owns an area of the Cuvva product. Squads are made up of engineers from multiple disciplines (backend, web, iOS, Android), product and content designers, and a product manager. Engineers at Cuvva come from a variety of backgrounds and have different but complementary skill sets. We don’t require a computer science degree - many of us are self-taught.

Our approach

We value consistently-written, simple, resilient systems. Our backend is made up of many standalone services with a JSON-based RPC interface. We aim to create a client-agnostic API design suitable for a variety of clients (mobile apps, website, internal tooling, 3rd parties). Because we’re a regulated financial company, we have interesting and rigorous requirements to meet with regards to data security and auditability.

Most systems are written in Go (some older ones are Javascript), backed by either Postgres or Mongo, and are hosted in a container environment. We heavily lean on AWS tooling such as S3, Lambda, and SQS, and we occasionally build integrations with more “legacy” 3rd party systems in the insurance industry.

You can find out more about our backend systems here: Our libraries and Go tooling is open sourced on GitHub “Showing off our K-sortable IDs” our blog

“How we analyse and test new pricing models” our blog

“How we test and roll out new product features” our blog

You’ll do great here if you:

• Have genuine interest and curiosity about the Cuvva product, and consumer insurance in general

• Enjoy working as a team to solve problems collaboratively

• Have around 5 years of experience building rock-solid backend systems and APIs

• Have a track record of shipping great quality code with real customer impact

• Be comfortable and productive working with Go

• We don’t require commercial Go experience but you would be expected to have a basic understanding and a willingness to learn

• Having a background with at least one statically-typed language is a good sign

• Know your way around the major AWS services (or similar cloud services), and have an enthusiasm for cloud services in general

• Be comfortable working with containers (e.g. Docker, K8S, ECR, container based CI platforms)


Perks & Benefits

Benefits

As well as a competitive salary (£75-90k, dependent on experience) and equity based remuneration, benefits of working at Cuvva include:

• Brand new MacBook 💻

• 33 days holiday (inc public holidays🌞)

• Flexible working

• Wellbeing, personal development and work from home budgets

• Yearly increases to budgets and holiday allowances

• Generous parental leave policy

• One-to-one sessions with our Sanctus mental health coaches, giving you a safe space to talk 🧠

• Access to Lifeworks - our mental health tool and employee assistance programme

• Mates rates on your car insurance

• Salary sacrifice schemes for electric bike hire and electric car lease

• Cycle to work scheme 🚲

• Season ticket loans 🚂

• A volunteer day

• Office library full of great books 📚

• Great coffee machine in the office ☕️

• Fully stocked beer and soft drink fridge (we do team drinks every Thursday)

• Monthly team outings or remote events (so far we’ve done things like karaoke, go-karting, bowling and comedy nights) 🎤

Remote / Zug, Switzerland
$70,000 to $130,000 a year

1 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Make a difference in an innovative team and build a world class big data research platform.

Numus is a global group of quantitative, engineering, and blockchain experts. We are contributing to shape the future of applied decentralized finance. We are a native global and decentralized team with an office presence in Zug, Switzerland. We combine extensive and diverse experience from the Crypto, Quant, Tech and Finance worlds but are bound by a shared passion for sharing ideas, learning from each other and solving new problems together.

Are you keen to work in a startup where your ideas, experience and willingness to find creative solutions – and not your title – makes a difference?

You will help design, create and improve our central automated trading platform, written mostly in Go. You will help to make our architecture even more secure, resilient and fault-tolerant while maintaining a modular, well-tested architecture with simple and elegant code, focussed on speed and latency. A good line of code for you is the one which wasn’t written. You see infrastructure as code and see the deployment and monitoring as an integral part of your work, DevOps-style. You rather try to use a AWS cloud service instead of running your own piece of infrastructure or code. Security is always on your mind, and you’re maybe always a little bit too paranoid. You will also help research developers to port their Code to Golang and maintain code quality. You love to explore new state-of-the-art tools and discuss them with your team. Contributing to Open Source projects (e.g. modules to connect to exchanges) is an important part of your work as well. You’re super detail and quality oriented and love to work in a team where most problems haven’t been solved so far – so we highly value creativity to find solutions.

Requirements

  • Deep understanding of modern cloud-based backend architectures and technologies
  • Golang coding experience
  • Database technologies, especially latency-focussed NoSQL (AWS DynamoDB, Redis, ElasticSearch, AWS S3)
  • Distributed Systems (gRPC, Redis)
  • DevOps deployment on AWS (Docker containers, AWS CloudFormation/CDK, AWS Opsworks, AWS ECS/Fargate)
  • Maintaining a CD/CI Pipeline (AWS CodePipeline/Build/Deploy, Github Actions, TravisCI)
  • Monitoring tools (AWS X-Ray, AWS CloudWatch, Datadog, Honeybadger, New Relic)
  • Security Tools and Concepts (especially on AWS: VPC, IAM Roles, Security Groups)
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and high attention to details
  • Highly self-organized, self-learner, strongly quality oriented
  • Fluent English speaker

Beneficial Requirements

  • Analysis and math skills
  • Experience with Python, JavaScript/TypeScript (AWS Lambda) and Ruby (on Rails)
  • Experience with Serverless technologies (AWS Lambda)
  • Experience with big data management and analysis toolchains like Databricks, Apache Spark, Kinesis
  • Extended know-how about security, hardening and attack vectors
  • Interest in crypto and/or financial markets How to apply

What we offer

If you are eager to join a knowledge driven group of brilliant minds that value results above anything and do not engage in any political internal discussions, then you should join Numus.

As everyone of us is constantly learning and we are far from definitive answers yet, we embrace a global, diverse and collaboration-oriented team culture. We value open, smart and sharp minds, no matter their background. They are our greatest asset.

If you are curious, scientifically minded, entrepreneurial, passionate, a little bit quirky and fun: we would like to get to know you and become a part of our journey. Develop your skills together with us in a humble, remote, lean and agile environment.

We operate in a non-hierarchical structure on a self-management basis where skill counts instead of titles. Take initiative, initiate change and take responsible action. You also know when to ask for help.

You’ll be working with the latest cutting edge technology to solve real world problems. Creativity is a must in our company. We’re organized as a full remote-first company, so Everybody can choose freely to work remotely or from our offices or a mix of both, we will be able to adjust to your work-life balance.

€30,000 to €35,000 a year
July 2019
4 Applicants This Week

Job Description

Gtmhub is the world’s most beautiful and intuitive Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) management and employee experience solution. We build enterprise-scale software with a consumer-grade experience.

We help organizations amplify revenue growth by aligning every employee with their corporate purpose using the OKRs method. We are big believers in the power of employee experience to drive productivity, so our product facilitates best practice employee success features.

At heart, we are product people who love data so much that we built the only solution that integrates more than 150 data connectors to allow for true automation of progress and productivity management.

The Role

The term site reliability engineering is credited to Benjamin Treynor Sloss, Vice President of Engineering at Google. He said site reliability engineering is “what happens when a software engineer is tasked with what used to be called operations.”

To us, a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) is responsible for the availability, latency, performance, efficiency, change management, monitoring, emergency response, and capacity planning of their services.

SREs design and implement automation with software to replace human labor. They want systems that are automatic, not just automated—such that their services are able to run and repair themselves.

Responsibilities

Engage in and improve the entire lifecycle of services—from inception and design, through to deployment, operation, and refinement/system tuning

Support services before they go live through activities like system design consulting, developing software platforms and frameworks, capacity planning and launch reviews

Maintain services once they are live by measuring and monitoring availability, latency, and overall system health

Identify performance bottlenecks and troubleshoot performance issues

Scale systems sustainably through mechanisms like automation, and evolve systems by advocating for changes that improve reliability and velocity

Practice sustainable incident response and postmortems

Basic Qualifications

Experience with algorithms, data structures, complexity analysis, and software design

Ability to work across teams (business and technical) to continuously analyze system performance in production, troubleshoot consumer reported issues, and proactively identify areas requiring optimization

Preferred Qualifications

Expertise in designing, analyzing and troubleshooting large-scale distributed systems

A systematic problem-solving approach, accompanying effective communication skills, a sense of ownership, self-direction, and drive

Ability to debug and optimize code and to automate routine tasks

Practical experience in supporting application reliability practices for consumer-facing web and mobile experiences

The Stack

Our tech stack includes (but is not limited to):

Kubernetes, Docker, Golang, Java, GAP, ELK, OpenTracing, Python, OpenShift, Terraform, Ansible

We started in Sofia in 2015 with a mission to ship a world-class data management and analytics engine which allows companies to automatically track and visualize KPIs in real-time and create custom insights to inform goal setting, performance management, and long-term strategic decision making. Today we operate across offices in Sofia, London, Berlin, and San Francisco.

Apply today if our mission inspires you! Join us in developing yourself and others as our Site Reliability Engineer.

Site Reliability Engineer (Platform)
Monzo
London, UK / Remote (EU)
£59,000 to £116,000 a year
September 2020
12 Applicants This Week

Job Description

At Monzo we’re aiming to build the best current account in the world. We are always keen to hear from capable, creative engineers who want to help us accomplish that goal 🚀

We’re currently looking for Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) to join our Platform team.

We’re looking for SREs who are software engineers at heart - you’re as comfortable writing software to solve problems as you are operating AWS or Kubernetes. If you’re a software engineer who has some good cloud infrastructure experience already, or you’re eager to get really familiar with systems, tooling and libraries, this could be the role for you.

As a team, we’re responsible for designing, building, and operating the services we consume from AWS, along with the software we run on top like Kubernetes, Cassandra, Prometheus, and Kafka. We’re also responsible for operating our three physical data centres, our network, and being on-call for the things we own and run.

To achieve this, we’re organised into three squads within the Platform Group; Infrastructure Platform, Storage Platform, and Backend Platform. Each squad is responsible for solving a specific set of problems for our customers and our engineers. We’re looking for engineers who are interested in joining our Infrastructure Platform or Storage Platform squads right now, but there are opportunities to move between them as you gain experience with our platform.

We’ve posted a good overview of our platform on our blog if you’d like to learn more.

We’re investing a lot of up-front effort in building a scalable, secure, and extensible architecture for our millions of customers. Come and help us build a state-of-the-art microservices platform and build the kind of bank you want to use.

Our engineers have a variety of different backgrounds

We have several non-graduates; only some of us studied Computer Science; some of us have worked in huge companies; some have only ever worked in startups; others are former consultants. As long as you enjoy learning new things, we’d love to talk to you. We do not ask for formal qualifications or degree requirements for any of our engineering roles.

We are actively creating an equitable environment for all of our engineers to thrive

Diversity and inclusion are a priority for us and we are making sure we have lots of support for all of our people to grow at Monzo. We provide a sponsorship framework in Engineering for women and people of colour; all of our leaders are trained on privilege awareness and we are creating partnerships with organisations dedicated to supporting underrepresented groups. You can read more in our 2020 Diversity and Inclusion report.

Monzo works in project-based sprints in small, interdisciplinary teams

We have around 150 engineers out of roughly 1,400 people in total - and we have big ambitions. There are many interesting challenges ahead, and we’re happy for people to move between teams or to specialise, whatever you prefer. As an engineer here you’d be able to work directly with anyone across the company, and we run regular knowledge-sharing sessions so you’ll learn heaps about everything from how banks work to effective communication.

We encourage an open and transparent working environment

You can get involved in any aspect of the business you are interested in and, following Stripe’s example, all emails in the company are visible in an email archive.

Castor EDC Logo
Site Reliability Engineer
Castor EDC
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
€60,000 to €80,000 a year
February 2020
5 Applicants This Week
This job posting is no longer available

Job Description

Our true purpose at Castor

Castor is one of the leading platforms for data collection in medical research. We believe standardizing and reusing datasets is key to overcoming the healthcare challenges of the future.

How we operate

Our main Electronic Data Capture (EDC) application runs on a proven stack consisting of Ubuntu, Nginx, PHP and MySQL. For our cloud installations, we orchestrate these setups by using Terraform combined with Ansible for the server configuration management.

Due to the nature of processing medical data, we have clients in different regions across the globe, often with specific regulatory constraints around where and how their research data is stored. To meet these customer demands we combine both traditional as well as cloud-based hosting solutions.

Most of our clients prefer to run in Azure, but we’re using Google Cloud Platform for things like Kubernetes hosting of greenfield projects, blob storage for scalable file upload storage and their Key Management System (KMS) to further secure our data.

For our metrics we’ve begun standardizing on Prometheus and we’re moving towards Loki for log aggregation. We use PagerDuty for alerting, communicate via Slack and host our code on Github.

Why we’re growing our team

With our recent expansion have come new challenges, both in how we organize ourselves and in how we manage and scale our infrastructure in the future.

To further these efforts we have formed a Platform team consisting of SRE and Software Engineering, which we are now looking to grow with the addition of an additional SRE.

Additionally, due to the sensitive nature of medical data, Castor is certified for both ISO/IEC 9001 (quality) and 27001 (Information security). In addition, we have to adhere to a number of other regulations, including Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines.

Our goal is to unite these requirements with emerging SRE practices around infrastructure as code and other principles to create a well designed and documented system, while still allowing us to remain flexible to change.

How you will contribute

Our absolute commitment to patient data security and privacy informs our vendor selection with certified datacenter and cloud providers. To achieve real impact in medical research, Castor needs to operate security around the world.

Historically, our production platform has run on top of managed hosting services. This model doesn’t scale well for our global, international footprint, which is why we are currently expanding our in-house knowledge and transitioning to Infrastructure-as-a-Service providers.

As a Site Reliability Engineer, you’ll have the ability to shape our operations and continuously deliver a working product. Working very closely with the development teams, you’ll collaborate in supporting and structuring our efforts around automation, observability and security. With your help we plan to scale the Castor platform to the next level.

Some things we worked on recently

Whilst there are many operational challenges as we continue to grow and scale at Castor, our Platform team has made great improvements to a variety of our systems already. To give you some examples of what we achieved last month:

  • Migrated our DNS to AWS Route53
  • Set up automatic documentation pipelines using MkDocs
  • Moved our CI/CD pipelines from Jenkins to CircleCI
  • Built a key-service on AWS Lambda to store disk encryption keys off-site for an otherwise region-local setup

Your background

You have helped run web-facing services under production workloads and have experienced the challenges that come with maintaining and scaling these systems. Making and owning decisions about systems architecture together with your team is something you enjoy and feel comfortable with.

Qualities we’re looking for include:

  • A good grasp on how *NIX systems operate
  • The ability to evaluate and implement best practices for IT operations
  • A working knowledge of both cloud-native and traditional systems architecture and the trade-offs between them
  • Experience with a configuration management framework such as Ansible, Chef, Puppet or SaltStack
  • The ability and desire to work with a wide range of open source technologies
  • A strong privacy- and security mindset
  • Experience with some aspects of Observability and distributed systems: from monitoring, logging and metrics instrumentation to resiliency to failure
  • A good understanding of how relational databases operate
  • Experience with at least one programming or scripting language, preferably Python or Go(lang)
  • Knowledge that a list of skills and requirements doesn’t mean you have to tick every single box to apply ;)

How we say thank you

At Castor we truly live our core values, believing we can achieve anything with a healthy and happy team. With this in mind, we offer the following benefits:

  • Our own ‘Castor Burrow’ - brand new offices by Amsterdam Amstelstation
  • A competitive salary plus an annual company bonus plan
  • Employee Stock Option Programme incentive
  • 30 days annual leave plus 6 public holidays
  • An individual training and professional development budget
  • Flexible working with the opportunity to work from home 1 day per week
  • Meditation room with daily yoga, mindfulness and company subscription to Calm
  • Lunch and healthy snacks in the office every day
  • A new Mac or Dell laptop

That’s what we’re working towards.

We believe that diversity will make us better.

Bud’s mission is to make the money part of people’s lives simple. To get there, we need a workforce that is diverse as the people we create our products for.

BlueLabs Logo
Software Engineer
BlueLabs
Europe (Remote)
€58,000 to €76,000 a year
March 2021
6 Applicants This Week

Job Description

At BlueLabs we are building a next-generation sports betting platform focused on performance, reliability, modularity and automation. After a period of experimentation, we are now excited to see our technology powering the launch of BetFox, a new B2C operator in Ghana.

To ensure the continuous enhancement of our platform while scaling up operations and entering additional African countries, we are now looking to growing our team. As a result, two of our teams (i.e. Betting and Account) are now on the lookout for seasoned Software Engineers who want to join our distributed team and help us execute our vision.

The Team

The Account Team is responsible for the development and daily operations of the core services powering business-critical functions such as player account management and wallets. Other focus areas include, but are not limited to: responsible gaming, integration with third-party payment providers, integration with Mobile Network Operators, and player acquisition and retention programs with a focus on personalisation and automation.

The Betting Team is responsible for designing, developing, and operating all services relating to the lifecycle of bets in our sports betting platform. This stretches from bet placement to bet settlement, including advanced features such as an event- and player-based risk management, ability to build complex bets such as from outcomes with dependent probabilities, or continuous calculation of early settlement offers (cash out).

The services built by our teams are to be concurrently used by thousands of users and are expected to be able to handle hundreds of thousands of daily transactions in a timely manner.

Sub-second latency is welcomed but high throughput has higher priority in the Betting domain. The goal is building a sports betting platform where no bet is rejected due to lack of capacity in the system. Bet settlement is worth a special mention as the platform needs to be able to quickly evaluate hundreds of thousands of bets upon the resulting of an underlying sporting event.

Raw performance isn’t everything. The team must also ensure that the platform can be easily adapted to be compliant with the different and ever-changing regulatory demands our industry is facing all over the world. The ultimate goal being to ensure a fair and safe sports betting experience to all our players.

We are building a microservice architecture based on event sourcing using Pulsar. Our services are written in Golang and use PostgreSQL as an operational database. We use SemaphoreCI to deploy our services to a GKE cluster, which is provisioned using Terraform.

A good candidate should have high standards for himself, a desire to build high-quality, well-tested, production-ready solutions and constantly improve his/her skills. We expect you to take ownership of some parts of the platform, be proactive over the entire development lifecycle and have the ability to work in a fast-paced environment. If this sounds scary, don’t worry - you won’t be alone in this. We value teamwork, trust, communication and a healthy working relationship, so you can always count on the team for support.

About You

  • You have good problem-solving skills, a tendency towards simple and effective solutions, and a “getting things done” mentality.
  • Analytical thinking, troubleshooting skills, attention to detail.
  • You are a reliable, trustworthy person that keeps their promises.
  • Interest in keeping yourself up to date and learning new technologies.
  • Product-oriented mindset and eagerness to take part in shaping the products we build.
  • Ability to work autonomously in a fully distributed team.
  • Good communication skills in verbal and written English.

Requirements

  • BS degree in Computer Science or similar technical field
  • 1+ years of professional software development experience using Go
  • Experience building large-scale distributed systems, communicating asynchronously via message passing using RabbitMQ, Kafka or Pulsar
  • Deep understanding of DDD, CQRS, microservices architecture, and SQL/NoSQL data stores
  • Ability to write clean, efficient, maintainable, and well-tested code
  • Familiarity with test automation, cloud and containerization technologies, code instrumentation and CI/CD pipelines
  • Interest in taking full ownership of your services and managing them in a production environment including the troubleshooting of live incidents

Remote Work

We are hiring for talent, not for a specific location. You will find that members of our team are distributed all over Europe. Being a distributed team enables us to hire only the best, without being restricted to the talent pool available at a specific geographic location. However, to facilitate team communication and collaboration we currently require you to be located in Europe. You must also be able to travel to other European locations a few times a year for on-site meetings and workshops.

Compensation

The budgeted compensation range for this role is €58,000 to €76,000 annually, depending on your background and experience. As an independent contractor, you will be responsible for paying any taxes or applicable fees in your country of residence. In addition to that, we offer a number of perks to each of our team members as we truly believe in a healthy work-life balance and continuous learning.

  • You’re not afraid to speak up when you have a point of view, but can “disagree and commit” once a final decision is reached
  • You just read this whole list and got more excited than concerned

How we work

We are remote first

We value amazing work and a strong work-life balance. The majority of our collaboration happens on Slack and Zoom. We get together quarterly for team offsites so we can get some facetime (Covid Pending).

Salary Transparency

We believe that financial transparency creates trust, and that teams with a high level of trust are able to execute more effectively. We view salary transparency as a way to challenge a rampant problem in our industry: the wage gap. The base salary for any two employees in the same role is the same. Performance in that role is the differentiator, not upfront negotiation.

Benefits

This is a salaried role. In addition, nextmv offers:

  • Health Care Plan (Medical, Dental & Vision)
  • Minimum Vacation Policy - (3 weeks minimum)
  • Stock Option Plan
  • 401k
  • Home Office Stipend
  • Parental Leave

This role (and all roles at nextmv) is remote. That being said, all employees should be able to travel to company retreats quarterly (when COVID settles down).

About nextmv

nextmv helps companies automate and optimize even the most complicated operational decisions. The nextmv platform allows any developer to quickly build, test, and deploy models that automate routing, assignment, matching and scheduling.

Our Values

Our values are aspirational and affect everything we do. At nextmv, we hope to instill core attributes and practices into our daily lives. We will work toward these goals together, and help each other along the way.

Community
We act as a group of skilled contributors with diverse backgrounds and a common mission.
We listen to each other to actively instill empathy in ourselves.
We introspect about our actions and their impacts.

Candor
We share information, from company strategy to small insights and feedback.
We collaboratively review our decisions and code using the same process.
We own our mistakes and admit our vulnerabilities.

Focus
We are ambitious and value achievement over status.
We are innately driven to innovate and improve the world.
We apply our time and skills effectively to challenging problems.

Balance
We separate our work from our self-worth to view and improve it objectively.
We don’t overwork, and take regular time away to encourage creativity.
We take care of ourselves so we can give our best to our team.

Also, we love animals.
