The Company

Our Client is one of the world’s more exciting scaleup product development consultancies headquartered in Berlin, they don’t work on simple MVP or maintenance projects, they get to the core of incredibly complex and challenging projects for their enterprise clients.

My clients’ achievements to date include building a real-time ad server to handle billions of daily requests and analysing terabytes of daily generated data, creating a Frontend Microservice Fleet for one of Germany’s biggest entertainment conglomerates, and building several decentralized Ethereum (Bitcoin 2.0 blockchain technology) services.

A crucial detail for this role is that you won’t be pulled in all directions on multiple clients, you will be working on one account (who we can’t disclose here due to NDA!) on a project spanning multiple years.

The founders have an incredibly impressive technical background and want excellent technical practices at the core of their company. They have founded and grown multiple successful startups, co-founded one of the largest tech meetup groups in Europe, contributed to open source projects, and won numerous hackathons.

In the 5 years the company has been running, not one person has handed in their notice. They work fully remotely in distributed teams and meet up in a central location twice a year.

The Culture

They have a blame-free culture built on true trust and autonomy. Choose how you work best, for example, if you want to work a 4 day compressed work week if you want to take Friday off and work on Sunday if you want to work 2pm-10pm. As long as you participate in stand-ups, they don’t care how you get your work done. There’s no micromanagement, internal politics or hierarchy.

“They’re the kind of people who would value if you spent the time to properly research a problem to create a good solution instead of rushing to meet arbitrary deadlines” The basis of their technical strategy is formed around no chaos and stress-free releases.
