Senior Backend Engineer (Remote US)

About Typeform

One sunny Barcelona morning, two designers sat down to build a beautiful lead gen form for a bathroom company’s showroom. They ended up reimagining the data collection experience, and realized it was one idea they wouldn’t be flushing down the toilet. Today, Typeform is a team of over 300 people from more than 35 countries, with offices in Barcelona, Spain and San Francisco, US.

We’re building a world where brands, businesses, and their communities can have more personal relationships with the people who matter most. To do this, we give people the tools they need to have conversational experiences at scale—because meaningful relationships start with conversations.

From online lead forms and engaging quizzes, to face-to-face encounters in the office, help us build more meaningful relationships, one conversation at a time.

About the team
 
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 Backend Engineer to join our team of 35 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.

The Role
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.
About you
Here’s what we’re after:
  • 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 and PHP.
  • You've got experience working with AWS and Kafka
  • 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’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’ve got a testing mindset—writing the right kind of test is a given for you.
  • You understand that quality is down to everybody.
  • You show maturity in tradeoffs, make sound decisions, and plan well.
  • You speak English.
  • You’re an empathetic person with a big appetite for success.

Dear talented engineer…

Yes, you! You’ve got skills in abundance and companies are knocking at your virtual door. But you’re looking for somewhere special—with people who care about you, your interests, and motivations. Here’s why we believe Typeform is that place:

What we do matters.

Typeform is used by about 2% of the world’s population every year, with millions of typeforms answered every day—and we’re growing constantly. Sheesh! That’s why we need you. You’ll help us build scalable, resilient software and systems that empower people to have more meaningful interactions with their customers, communities, employees, and more.

It’s all about the team.

You’ll work with people from all over the world—55 nationalities and counting. A group of humble, talented, diverse folks who value autonomy and end-to-end ownership of projects. You’ll be given all the tools you need for continuous delivery and ongoing experimentation.

We believe in open source.

We're building Typeform on top of open-source projects—like Golang, React, NextJs, K8S, and Django—and we encourage you to contribute to the open source communities that interest you. You’ll get a $15 donation credit for every hour you contribute to open source software, which you can donate to a charity of your choice.

You’ll never stop learning.

Our start-up days may be behind us, but we’re no stuck-in-the-mud corporate buzzkill. There’s always something happening, with opportunities to level up your skills while solving challenging problems. You’ll be given responsibility and a chance to get involved in both tactics and strategy. And you’ll have a structured career path, with $1000 per year to invest in your own development as you see fit.

Innovation isn’t just a buzzword here.

Okay, innovation is always a bit of a buzzword. But we’re the real deal. Every quarter you can join a 2-week hackathon, where you can make your own project proposal or team up to work on somebody else’s. You’ll get to meet people from different teams, work on different tech stacks, and contribute to our product roadmap. These sessions often give birth to new product features, and even architectural change.

We’re remote first.

It’s not where you live that matters, it’s where you’re at—your skills, mindset, and attitude. We hire across the US and Europe, and you’ll join a team that suits your time zone. You’ll be made to feel at home from the first moment, thanks to our thoughtfully designed remote onboarding. And you’ll get a $1000 one-off payment to kit out your home office, plus $120 per month to cover any extra expenses. Travel is hard right now, but when the world is back on its feet, feel free to stop by our San Francisco or Barcelona offices to say hi.

How you ask is everything.
