Do you know your monolith from your microservices? Do you speak Golang and JavaScript? Do APIs set your pulse racing? If so, it’s time we talked.

At Typeform we’re evolving like never before and our vision is clear: make things a little more human. How? By helping makers and creators collect data in a conversational way. It’s more than building beautiful forms and surveys.

We put fun at the heart of everything we do—and set ambitious goals to push things forward. We all have our quirks and differences, but we're like a big group of passionate, humble and smart people, in a beautiful space full of plants and good conversation. We think it's kind of special, so we wanted to show you Typeform as the living, breathing company we are, rather than just a logo and a typeface. So sit back, and get to know us.

Now we’re looking for a talented, passionate, and pragmatic Microservices Architect to join our team of 44 different nationalities in Barcelona.

We need someone who’s specialized in API design and modern software architecture. You’ll evangelize microservices (Hallelujah!), and make sure the transition from monolith to microservices architecture has a solid technical foundation. Along the way you’ll rebuild parts of the platform in React and Redux on the front-end, and Go and Node.js on the back-end.

Anyone who’s ever moved house knows what a monumental planning challenge it can be. Well, we’re not just moving house. We’re moving all the foundations, too.

As a Microservices Architect at Typeform you will:

  • Guide technical discussions and architecture. We're still a young company, so you’ll have plenty of say in shaping our future
  • Work in an autonomous, multi-functional team of developers, quality assurance engineers, designers, product owners, scrum masters, and mischief makers
  • Think through hard problems, and work alongside teams to crack them wide open
  • Champion the value of engineering-driven projects with the Product team and other stakeholders
  • Give back to the community - once a month use a workday to contribute to an open source project of your choice
  • Grow! Yes, career growth at Typeform is particularly important to us, but how you want to develop is completely down to you. You’ll have an annual learning budget for conferences and courses, and opportunities for advancement will always open up

Main requirements

  • You know the ins and outs of building microservices, including: domain modelling, security, authentication, authorization, and scaling
  • You can decompose a monolithic application in a systematic way, and you’ve got the scars to prove it
  • You’re knowledgeable about range of languages and ecosystems (ideally Golang and JavaScript)
  • You’re committed to our users, and to maintaining solid technical foundations for our business
  • You’re hot on API design techniques, strategies for API evolution, and how to effectively evangelize API-driven development in an organization
  • You’re a strong communicator, passionate problem-solver, and generally a great person to be around


  • Great culture: we hire humble, creative, friendly and talented people
  • International team: over 40 nationalities
  • Make yourself at home: our office is designed for you. We’ll even buy you slippers to walk around in
  • Flexible working hours and Half-day Fridays: we focus on results, not what time you arrive or leave
  • Language courses: free Spanish & English lessons
  • 24 days of holiday: actually, it’s 23, but we throw in your birthday too
  • Private health insurance: as well as happy, we want you to be healthy
  • Top-notch equipment: you should have the best technology to help you be as productive as possible
  • Fuel for thought: healthy balanced lunch, fresh fruit, juices, and coffee. Oh, and our reception’s a bar - with beer
  • Discounted gym acess: access 100s of gyms around Barcelona for next to nothing
  • Resource library and a learning & development structure: you’ll have everything you need to help you grow
