Sep 26

Mentimeter is one of the fastest growing scale-ups in Sweden. 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 are looking for a Staff engineer to join our Product department.

We offer a friendly and challenging environment where you will be meeting technically complex tasks and be given a lot of responsibility from day one.

We believe in a fast paced development, with the possibility to try new things and experiment in a psychological safe environment.

What you'll do

A Staff engineer at Mentimeter will further help us level up our engineering teams and implement high-quality technology solutions.

You have an important role of facilitating and supporting collaboration between engineers solving challenging problems. While doing that you will act as a role model helping engineers grow in their roles. Collaborating with Product manager and Design peers across the company is an important part of your role and according to us crucial to succeed.

You will be a technical leader focusing both on engineering work in specific teams and supporting and coordinating technical projects across teams. We expect you to guide and lead architectural discussions and decisions, in alignment with business direction. You will contribute to code, mostly by supporting and teaching individuals and teams but potentially also in a more hands-on manner if there is a really tricky problem to solve that requires your skills.

In Mentimeter today we have three product areas, Core, Commercial and Shared Tech. Based on our needs today our first staff Engineer will lean towards focusing on our product teams in Core and Commercial, meaning less focus on DevOps tools/practices nor infrastructure components. Alignment with the existing devops and infrastructure teams will of course be needed.

This staff engineer will play a critical role in framing technical “Northern star” values, iterate the business aligned technical strategy, and mature the execution across all teams.

You will be working at the forefront of our offering, helping us position ourselves in our segment. You will be pushing boundaries through smart and innovative work with cutting edge technology.

Since the Developer Experience is important to us, we would love for you to raise your voice by influencing which tools, programming languages, and technologies we work with.


Skills Needed: 

We believe you are

Typically, for this role we require 10 years of related work experience as a developer and through your experience you have gained a good understanding of development for the web. We also expect a minimum of 2 years of experience as a staff engineer or similar role in a similar environment.

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

You love working in an environment where you constantly experiment and iterate quickly and believe data is the most powerful tool for informed decision-making.

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. We believe the key to being the first mover in our segment is smart and innovative work aided by cutting edge technology. In order to thrive in this, with us moving fast forward, you should be flexible and embrace change.

Your current programming language of choice doesn’t really matter, as long as you are open to learning and trying new things. Of course, onboarding might be quicker if you know one or more of the languages we use, say Ruby or Typescript, but we believe that you can learn any language, or tech stack, if you want to. Self leadership is key here.

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. For us, is it important that everyone cares about code quality so an interest in testing and automation is needed. Excellent communication skills and being able to work both independently and in a team are some other traits we are looking for in all of our colleagues. We are also looking for a servant leader that has an interest in growing people.

Last but not least: Having a curious mindset, being open to learning & sharing knowledge and of course: that you are interested in working with our tech stack.
