Our vision is to transform presentations and meetings into fun and interactive experiences by making it easy to listen and to be heard, as well as create meaningful engagement. We are building a modern and diverse fast-growing profitable product-first tech company and are based in Stockholm.

Mentimeter serves hundreds of millions of users with services that we deploy roughly 40 times a week. With transaction loads up to hundreds of votes per second, we have to be sure we can scale while still delivering a fast and smooth experience.

We work in small, independent, cross-functional and self-organizing teams. The team's Product Manager, Engineering Tech Lead and Product Designer organize and plan the team's backlog with a focus on continuously delivering value to our users.

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.

We are currently looking into/starting up brand new business areas, meaning you will be helping us position ourselves in our segment. You will be pushing boundaries through smart and innovative work with cutting edge technology.

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

Who you are

Typically, for this role we require 5 years of related work experience as a developer and through your experience you have gained a good understanding of frontend development for the web.

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

With our current roadmap, we believe you'd ideally have good React experience, but would also welcome your application if you have a lot of experience working with similar frontend frameworks that could add value.

For this particular position, we believe you are a person who gets motivated by a short feedback-loop, quickly seeing the effect your work has on end-users.

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.
