Job in High-Profile Startup

Head of Engineering

Location: Vienna / remote

 

We are the fastest growing marketplace for refurbished electronics in the German speaking region and are based in Vienna. Through our marketplace, completely renewed electronics like phones, laptops and tablets that are 40% cheaper and 100% more sustainable are sold to consumers.

We founded the company in February 2017 and grew to more than 70 employees in less than three years and expanded to Italy and Poland already. Along the way we won several awards, completed two large funding rounds and have already sold hundreds of thousands of products, which makes us one of the fastest growing startups in Europe right now. Our team has extensive international experience in the refurbishment industry, how to create a brand and how to scale a marketplace.

We are looking for a Head of Engineering who will lead our software development team. This position can be filled mainly remotely but you should be able to come in our office when needed. This means you have to be based at least close to Vienna.

Our main system consists of an HTTP API and backend workers written in Go, a public interface serving HTML pages to our customers written in Go and connecting to our API, Vue.js interfaces embedded into our public interface, and a standalone Vue.js management interface.

Key technologies are: Go, Vue.js, PostgreSQL, RabbitMQ and AMQP.

Together with you we want to build the leading marketplace for refurbished electronics in Europe.
