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.

! Please note, during the summer period we will continue to review and assess applications, Interviews will re-commence in August !

As a software 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 worldwide. You will do this with other engineers, a Product Manager, a Product Designer, and an Engineering Manager. Even though there are some specific roles in the team, we do things and solve problems together. We want you to be someone who engages with the rest of the team in product and design decisions and doesn’t shy away from discussions. This role is for someone who wants to do more than just write code 8 hours daily.

We are recruiting for two teams: 

  • One growth team that works primarily with experiments across the product to drive acquisition, retention and monetization metrics. 
  • One Product Experience team focusing on customer challenges and opportunities, and iteratively enhancing our solutions to give our users a great experience. The focus for the team is mainly on growth within the Enterprise segment by ensuring a controlled and efficient admin process. 

Both teams’ main way of working is mob programming, which also means that you will work with  both back-end and front-end. 

What you’ll do

As a senior software engineer, delivering value to our customers and users is essential. But an equally important task is to scale and help your juniors. To succeed in this role, you must enjoy mentoring others and getting motivated by seeing them grow not only as developers, but as engineers driving the product forward. To be successful, you should enjoy the entire product development chain of breaking down designs into feasible work, writing and testing the code, and ensuring it efficiently gets to production. This means that a reasonable amount of context-switching will be expected from you during our sprints.

Who you are

For this role, we believe at least 8 years of related work experience as a software engineer, and through your experience, you have gained a good understanding of product development. You most likely also have a master’s degree in a relevant engineering field.

You are a reliable, high-performing individual contributor with a solid understanding of your area of specialization. You always have a good idea of what you want to do and then just do it. You embrace change and short feedback loops.

In addition to being a good cultural fit (see our values below), we hope you bring a passion for software development, scalable architecture, and building great products. For us, it is important that everyone cares about code quality, so an interest in testing and automation is needed. Excellent communication skills and working independently and in a team are other traits we are looking for in all our colleagues. As the team is mob programming previous experience of this is valuable and you enjoy working in this way! 

Last but not least, you must have a curious mindset, be open to learning & sharing knowledge, and be interested in working with our tech stack.

The tech stack at Mentimeter consists of a frontend written in React (Next.js and Typescript), and a backend written in Ruby (not Rails). Supported by some of the following technologies:

  • Tailwind CSS

  • Node.js

  • Redis

  • PostgreSQL

  • Cloudflare

  • AWS

We require someone who knows React well but not necessarily Ruby for this role. If you know Ruby, that’s great, but knowing another backend language well and being willing to learn Ruby is equally fine. It’s more important to us that you have the right attitude than the exact right skill set.

Our recruitment Process:

1. Introduction TA interview

Get to know us better and introduce yourself further.

2. Business Case / Technical Test 

Show your skills by conducting a business case or a technical test.

3. Competence interview

Meet the team and dive deeper into your background and knowledge.

4. Culture interview

Discuss our company culture and core values
