Who we are
Most people dream of being able to play a musical instrument. We develop outstanding products that enable anyone to achieve this dream. Our first product is flowkey: a revolutionary app for learning to play the piano. After our launch in 2015, flowkey quickly became one of the global leaders in its category, with more than 5 million users from over 100 countries. We are also one of the exceptions in the startup world, as we have been profitable from the beginning. This enabled us to go our own way and create a great culture.
Why join us
We believe that the best companies will help you live your life the way you want and become the person you want to be. Here is how we strive to do that:
Your role and responsibilities
As a Backend Software Engineer at flowkey, you will work alongside our world-class team on a diverse, modern tech stack. Together, we will create a wide-reaching impact throughout our organization and for millions of users around the world.
Your focus will be to ensure our website and apps perform as they should, performantly, focusing on databases, backend logic, APIs, infrastructure, and servers. You will work alongside our engineering team to establish and maintain efficient development, testing, and release workflows. Your role is more analytical and numbers based compared to a frontend role, but a keen understanding of the product is also highly beneficial.
We want to share with you our passion for innovation, curiosity, and learning. We encourage all team members to focus on areas that interest and excite them the most, and actively foster self-responsibility, self-direction, experimentation, and growth.
Nice to have
Experience in any particular technology or process is far less important to us than the ability to learn quickly, turn ideas into solid code, and easily ramp up in new areas.
We warmly encourage engineers from underrepresented backgrounds to apply, even if they feel unsure about meeting every job requirement.
