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 Cloud Infrastructure Lead to help us in scaling both our infrastructure and tooling to support more users and our growing product engineering organization.
What you'll do
As a Cloud Infrastructure Lead at Mentimeter you will be leading as well as contributing to our Platform team; a team responsible for enabling product teams by providing a highly available, scalable and secure cloud infrastructure platform.
You will occupy an influential position within the engineering organization with room to suggest new technology and cloud infrastructure components that our Product teams can use to run their code in a scalable and secure manner. 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 will be both a Team Lead, leading an autonomous team of highly skilled engineers, as well as an engineer, contributing yourself to the team’s technical work. You will play an important and hands-on role in our upcoming AWS migration project, where we will move our whole backend infrastructure to AWS.
Daily tasks will include leading refinement sessions and setting priorities together with other leaders in the area, as well as tackling different problems with regards to scalability and reliability in AWS using Terraform. Some days you will work with solving incidents and running post mortems, while other days you will engage with other teams to understand requirements and devise technical solutions. Formulation of the Platform team’s technical strategy and long term plan will also be a key part of your work.
Who you are
You will have several years of experience as a developer with strong capability in software development. Most likely you naturally take a leadership position in teams you are in and have had a role in driving agile practices in teams from earlier work places, as well as experience with planning and strategy formulation both short and long term.
We believe you have in-depth experience with AWS services and cloud architecture. You should also be proficient in Terraform for infrastructure as code, promoting best practices and efficiency. An interest in reliability and observability is a plus.
As a person you have strong problem solving capabilities and a proactive mindset, as well as a keen interest in following the rapid changing landscape in the world of development. For this particular position, you should excel at communication as you will be driving initiatives across our whole engineering organization.
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. We think you have a curious mindset, are open to learning & sharing knowledge and enjoy working in a team as well as independently.

A platform where people feel safe, where differences are embraced, a place where you can have fun.

In order to give everyone a voice, we need to be as diverse as our users.
