About the team, you are going to join

Through our unique no-code editor, we allow our customers to automate decision-making processes. We enable them to digitize their service and instantly publish what they built, making it available to their clients. Our customers have gone from very simple to incredibly complex use-cases, and they are automating more and more processes using BRYTER. In turn, we’ve seen a rising dependence on the correctness and the availability of our system.

The unit you are joining, #unit_platform_and_devex, is an enabling unit with the mission to help other feature units deliver work with substantial autonomy and reduced cognitive load. We are a mix of backend, frontend, devOps and QA engineers which frequently collaborate closely together on cross cutting concerns spanning our area of expertise.

We strongly believe, that curiosity and motivation to learn are more important than knowing all the technologies. Therefore we encourage you to apply even if you feel like you don't tick all the boxes.

What you will do

πŸš€ You will shape the building blocks upon which the BRYTER product is built, enabling other teams to deliver value to users with increased independence and reduced cognitive load.

πŸ” You will play a key role in laying the foundation for cross cutting concerns like: Authentication and Authorization, multi tenant/multi environment separation, ways of scaling and interacting with databases, testing strategies for unit, integration and e2e tests.

🧩 You will make an impact on everyone by taking care that our CI/CD pipelines are fast, reliable and consistent.

πŸ“Š You will work closely with developers and the infrastructure team, to improve the observability of the services and to make sense of incoming error-reports and metrics, using tools such as Datadog.

What we are looking for

🌿 You have a solid knowledge of the Spring Framework and can decide which framework abstractions work best and when to apply them. An approach that works in a rapid prototyping scenario might not be suitable for a multi-tenant/multi-environment application.

πŸ‹πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ You have worked with CI/CD pipelines that deploy multiple times per day, especially on the JVM stack (gradle or maven).

πŸ“ŠYou will work closely with developers and the infrastructure team, to improve the observability of the services and to make sense of incoming error-reports and metrics, using tools such as Datadog.

βœ… Writing automated tests is not a chore for you but a key component to building a high-quality product. You know how to write maintainable tests and you have experience with both functional as well as performance tests.

What's important to us

Watch a webinar of our Chief Product Officer, where he shares some of the practices and rituals that make our remote-first working culture special.

🀝 Trust

We hired you because we trust you. We as founders and we as co-workers.

We trust each other to openly communicate our thoughts, make fast decisions and contribute to an environment that encourages others to do so. Our default-to-yes principle empowers everyone to be a leader and to take ownership.

We trust you because you are awesome, and we want to work with awesome people but also because we believe you have the knowledge and expertise to do great things at BRYTER.

πŸš€ Growth

We want you to take ownership and agency quite simply. If you sense something which can be improved, we expect you to follow this feeling and just do it. We empower everyone to make decisions.

We support you in your individual journey to grow. Not only by providing challenging work, people around you who you can learn from, but also through a personal conference and training budget.

We strive for collaboration and co-creation. We embrace that when you want to get something done you just reach out to your co-workers and ask for help, advice, feedback, and support.

We believe in the positive impact of cross-functional collaboration where everybody works together in a structured way (that prevents chaos). We call these cross-functional groups our Units.

We leverage this by working together in a Network Organization that is connecting competence (not a hierarchy of authority) and where information flows fluidly throughout the organization.

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ€β€πŸ‘¨πŸ½ Collaboration

We are team players and we believe in the power of cross-functional units. We make ownership and processes explicit in order to improve continuously. We have practices and rituals in place that help us reflect and improve continuously.

πŸ”Ž Customer-centric

We are here to solve customer problems. We strive to be a human centered organization and see our customers as humans and partners. We help them to do their job better and help them to scale their services by using our product.

In everything we do we maintain clear sight of the customer. We work based on small customer feedback loops and take end-to-end ownership: customer problem - solution - impact (- reflection - learning). This tailored approach allows us to continue being a successful company.

This enables us to respond fast and deliver new customer value frequently.

Curious? Please apply

Multiple studies have found that women/non-binary people on average seek to match a high percentage of a role's requirements before applying.

For people living with disabilities, chronic illnesses, or neurodiversity, adjustments, and support can make a decisive difference in the interviewing process.
