Who we are
We’re a team driven by the belief that we can radically change the world of work. We believe – and hear from our customers every day – that when an organisation understands itself better it can create more fulfilling jobs, and grow in ways never before imagined.
Enterprises big and small trust our products to provide visibility and clarity in areas once characterised by hearsay and uncertainty. With the insights delivered by Peakon, these organisations become more agile, responsive, and able to make the changes and investments that their employees care about most.
We’re in the business of creating great places to work, so it should be no surprise that this is our highest priority at Peakon. With ambitions as big as ours, we see individual growth and development as the key strategy for growing our business.
Trust and transparency guide everything we do here. You’ll find an open salary model, unlimited vacation, minimal hierarchy, and maximum freedom to develop and execute your own ideas. Our style of collaboration is based on honesty and friendship, and we always love making new friends...
As the Peakon engineering team grows, we are looking for an experienced backend engineer to be part of and lead our technical efforts. As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will be working as an senior backend developer to design and develop the more complex features of the Peakon platform. You will also be a key contributor in technical and architectural discussions, and work closely with our CTO and other leaders to develop the technical roadmap.
You will spend a significant part of your time mentoring other team members in designing and implementing new features, through f.ex. code reviews and pair programming.
