Intro

Typeform is making data collection more conversational. And we’re evolving like never before. But we’re still young, and you’ll get to shape the future of this company—beyond that, the industry.

We’re looking for a talented and passionate Senior Back-end Engineer to join our team of 44 different nationalities in Barcelona.

You’ll be joining us in our transition from monolith to microservices architecture. As a high-growth organization, we need an architecture that scales in a big way—by at least 20x, to be exact.

Come help us scale, integrate Typeform with other platforms, and find the right solutions for the right problems. You’ll help us pick up the pace when it comes to delivering real value to our users.

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Get busy with the end-to-end lifecycle of features, from concept to deployment
  • Contribute to technical and architectural decision-making
  • Work in a motley crew of engineers, designers, product owners
  • Grow—use your annual learning budget to take courses and go to conferences. There’ll be plenty of other opportunities for advancement, such as mentoring, internal talks and workshops
  • Grow others—use your experience to help colleagues achieve their goals
  • Give back to the community—take one workday a month to contribute to an open source project of your choice

Main requirements

  • You have at least 6 years of experience in a similar role
  • You’re comfortable picking up new stacks and choosing the right tool to get the job done. Even better, you’re comfortable with not just one but several technologies from our stack: Go, Node, and PHP
  • You’ve got experience working on a dynamic product that is ever changing and evolving rapidly
  • You take ownership and feel responsible for the product as a whole. You don’t mind getting your hands dirty, and work with legacy code
  • You have educated teams around good coding practices and principles
  • You’re accomplished in your field and you’ve mastered a variety of technologies
  • You’ve got a testing mindset—writing the right kind of test is a given for you
  • You speak English
  • You’re an empathetic person with a big appetite for success

Nice to have

  • You’ve got experience guiding a team through successful architectural and/or technical decisions
  • You can show us how you made an impact beyond a team or departmental level
  • You understand that quality is down to everybody
  • You show maturity in tradeoffs, make sound decisions, and plan well

Perks

  • 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: some of us are morning people, some of us are night owls. We focus on results, not what time you arrive
  • Language courses: free Catalan, Spanish & English lessons
  • Private health insurance: as well as happy, we want you to be healthy
  • Fuel for thought: healthy balanced lunch, fresh fruit, juices, and coffee. Oh, and our reception’s a bar - with beer
  • Discounted gym access: access 200s 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
