In November 2020, we raised € 4,1 M in funding, following the previous € 1,7 M in September 2019. This last year, we have grown from 5 to 50 people, and we will grow even stronger in 2021. We can safely say we have achieved product-market fit and that we are financially healthy. So now it's time to scale. We were already active in France, Belgium and Switzerland, and are currently expanding into new markets in Portugal, Spain and Italy.

We are looking for a Senior Backend Web Engineer here at Nodalview. What you will be responsible for:

  • Providing technical counseling; we are very proud to use modern tools without falling into the fashion traps. To achieve this you can apply your comprehensive technical awareness and do experiments that are thorough but efficient. You will collaborate on picking the right tool for the right job.
  • Improving and automating infrastructure operations: as a fast-growing company, we know the importance of scalability and automation. You will use and improve the tools that we have built for hosting and monitoring our app in the cloud.
