Senior Backend Engineer (f/m/x)

Job description

Sharpist is on a journey to deliver measurable business outcomes to its global enterprise clients, through a digital people development solution that is based on 1:1 coaching. As Europe's leading solution for people development, Sharpist marries the individual employee's needs for personalized learning with the demand for worldwide scalability of global organizations such as Axel Springer, STRABAG, and Porsche.

To achieve this "personalization at scale" Sharpist bets on unparalleled user engagement. This engagement derives from combining a 1:1 human coaching offer with a digital learning journey that makes personal growth transparent and gamifies the development experience, just like Apple Health or Strava are doing in their particular domains.

As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will be working within a cross-functional agile team to ensure the successful development of our fast growing product. You will take ownership of developing new features and improving our current architecture. You will contribute to an engineering culture where developers enjoy growing and keep learning.

💙 Sharpist was founded on the core belief that personalized learning is an important right everyone should be able to have access to. We are an equal opportunity employer and we encourage you no matter of all ethnic backgrounds, genders, and sexual orientations to apply for this role. 🙂
