Our vision is to transform presentations, meetings and lectures by turning passive audiences into engaged contributors. We make this possible through our interactive presentation platform where the traditional presentation monologue becomes an inclusive dialogue. We believe in the power of together and that the most successful leaders listen to be heard.
With Mentimeter, users become the best presenter they can be. Meetings become more productive, participants learn more and have fun whilst doing it.
We have more than 300 million users and customers worldwide, on our way of making the world a better place, one presentation at a time.
We are looking for a Senior Frontend Platform Engineer to help us in scaling both our application and tooling to support more users and our growing product engineering organization.
What you'll do
As a Frontend Platform Engineer at Mentimeter you will be an integral part of our Platform team; a team responsible for product team enablement, developer experience, and infrastructure.
You will occupy an influential position within the engineering organization with room to suggest new technology and ways of working that will improve the quality and speed with which we ship code. This will also mean close collaboration with our Staff Engineers, to ensure we set our engineering department up for success. Your team’s decisions will greatly impact Mentimeter, our engineers’ productivity, and developers’ experience.
You and your team will design, build, evolve, and maintain the foundational frontend ecosystem and underlying tools used by Mentimeter’s product engineering teams. The daily tasks will vary as we continue to tackle different problems with regards to scaling our organization.
Some days you will be working with product engineers to identify more scalable patterns for writing product frontend code, while others you might be working directly on our typescript monorepo tooling in order to improve build performance.
Since Employee Experience (also known as Developer Experience) is very important to us, we expect you to have a role in influencing which tools, programming languages, and technologies you work with while helping us ensure we have a smooth software pipeline for fast and continuous delivery.
Who you are
You will have several years of experience as a developer through which you have gained a very good understanding of frontend development.
It is a big plus if you have experience as Team Lead, Tech Lead or similar, as you will be driving the frontend platform work yourselves in the team. Extra meriting if you have experience setting long term and short term goals and technical strategy.
As a person you gravitate towards improving the developer experience for yourself and your colleagues, and have a keen interest in following the rapid changing landscape in the world of frontend development. For this particular position, you should excel at communication as you will be driving your own initiatives influenced by feedback from other developers.
We believe the key to being the first mover in our segment is smart and innovative work aided by cutting edge technology. In order to succeed, you should be flexible and embrace change.
In addition to being a good cultural fit (see our values below), we hope that you bring a passion for software development, scalable architecture and building great products. It is important to us that everyone cares about code quality. We expect you to have an interest in testing and automation in general, and experience from writing test-driven frontend code in particular
Technologies you'll be exposed to during your time at Mentimeter:
- React & Next.js
- Typescript Monorepo
- CloudFlare Pages & Workers
- AWS Lambda
What Mentimeter can offer

Your place will be in a growing company with lots of career opportunities, working on a beloved product used by more than 300 million people.
