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.

As a Senior Backend Engineer at Mentimeter you will be an integral part of one of our cross-functional product teams, implementing designs and user experiences that will affect millions of people all over the world. You should be curious about how to build fast, intuitive and well performing user interfaces with modern technologies in a team together with designers and developers.

You will balance discovery and implementation work, new customer facing features and managing tech debt and technical initiatives.

Since Employee Experience is very important to us, we expect you to raise your voice by influencing which tools, programming languages, and technologies you work with while helping us ensure we have a smooth software pipeline for continuous and fast delivery.

Who you are

You are a reliable, high-performing individual contributor with a solid understanding of your area of specialization.

You should have at least 5 years of commercial experience working with Ruby or similar languages such as Python, Node.js, or Go.

It is a big plus if you have experience as Tech Lead or similar, or if this is a road your ambitions are leading you towards.

We believe you are a person who gets motivated by a short feedback-loop, quickly seeing the effect your work has on end-users. 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 thrive in this, with us moving fast forward, 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 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.

We think you have a curious mindset, are a great communicator and enjoy working in a team as well as independently
