Back-end Engineer

Hey there 🤗we are looking for a Back-end Engineer ready to join our Product Team, you will be working with our product managers, product designers and tech team to develop two awesome experiences, our dashboard for company managers and our platform for employees.

About us 

Compensation is more than a pay-check, and traditional approaches don’t adequately reflect it or the way people work today. We’re on a mission to change that. 

We see compensation as everything a company gives their people in return for the work they do. It should be easier to understand, offer, manage and spend. 

 Long-term, we’re working towards becoming the place where compensation happens and is managed by those who award and receive it. 

We’re on our way to coining the term “Compensation-as-a-service”. We’re proud to be backed by leading European VC funds, having raised over €5 million in our pre-seed round led by Breega.
