  • Things money can’t buy: A great place to work in the heart of Berlin in a collaborative culture with talented, broad-minded, interesting people

Job requirements


  • You are a builder at heart: Figuring out how to solve problems is one of your favorite activities. Building, scaling, and rapidly iterating is what keeps you going
  • You have 3-5 years of full-stack coding experience building both web and mobile apps in a fast-paced, agile tech environment - experience in health care would be a plus
  • You have led engineering teams in startups in the past and created an inclusive environment with an appreciation for every team member
  • You are versatile in programming languages, can work across the entire stack, are familiar with common front-end frameworks, and excel at setting up the latest cloud-based hyperscale architecture
  • You can prioritize what makes sense to build in-house and what not and steadily reevaluate the cost-benefit ratio of your engineering decisions
  • You can switch between macro and microscopic perspectives easily: You see the overall requirements for the business and are able to talk about a line of code in the next conversation. You are an excellent communicator that can easily explain ideas and engage people, both technical and non-technical
