Fullstack Engineer (backend focused)

Fullstack Engineer (backend focused)

We’re looking for a Fullstack Engineer with backend experience to join our small team and make Kive an indispensable tool for every creative in the world. We care deeply about user experience and ease of use. We had enough of dealing with slow and clunky tools. For this, we’re looking for engineers who care about design and like to work on features from ideation to release, enhance existing features and come up with entire new creative ways to make our users more productive.

We’re on a mission to make the world more creative and creativity more collaborative.

We genuinely believe that when creativity and technology come together, something close to magic happens. In our opinion, the intersection of creativity and tech is the most exciting space to work in – one that pushes culture and imagination forward.

In this role you will

Work in close collaboration with other engineers and designers.

Do the best work of your career and work regular hours.

Co-own the product. Have high autonomy, and take responsibility where you see the need. Make yourself indispensable to the team.

Improve developer productivity. Creating force multiplier effects for your team-mates, like processes, tooling, instrumentation, automation etc to improve the development workflow.

What we offer

Competitive salary and an attractive equity program in a start-up funded by top investors Creandum (1st investor Spotify, iZettle, depop) and EQT Ventures (Einride, Sonantic). 🦄

An opportunity to join an early-stage company and influence how we build the company before there are too many processes and structures in place.

A learning environment, with interesting challenges to solve and an ambitious team to support you.

A flexible work setup – work from home or join us in the office located in the heart of Stockholm.

You'll be a great fit if

You have a solid backend experience. Proficiency with Node.js/TS + one more server-side language. Strong experience working with both relational and document-based database technologies. Know your way around with cloud services like AWS or GCP, CI workflows, testing etc.

You’re system thinker. Design and develop distributed systems in a principled way and take part in high impact architectural decisions. Engage in stimulating technical challenges in topics such as very large databases, SQL processing, data modelling, or systems performance.

You’re an empathetic communicator. You have good collaboration and communication skills and treat technology as tradeoffs. You may be opinionated but you’re not ideological. When disagreeing, you speak up, but always commit when a decision has been made.

You’re a web technology enthusiast. You have years of experience working with Javascript, and ideally Typescript. You enjoy working in the React ecosystem and are looking for ways to write modularized code. GraphQL and Node.js are known to you and you have successfully used them in production.

You’re productive and write quality code. You can direct yourself in your work and break down big projects into small deliverables. You care about the outcome and take a pragmatic approach to deliver it. You value feedback, but don’t need to be told what to do, and are proactive picking up work yourself.
