Senior Backend Engineer (m/f/d)

About EqualTo

EqualTo is an early stage b2b software company based in Germany. We build transparent sales commission software. Our team consists of experienced SaaS entrepreneurs, engineers and UX designers, with big ambitions. We have done a complete rethink of how one should manage sales commissions resulting in a uniquely positioned product: the first truly transparent, self-service commission platform, combining the flexibility of spreadsheets with the scalability of SaaS. We currently all work remote, with a remote-first future and small office in Berlin.

Our mission

Incentive compensation should do one thing: motivate people. But in countless companies, it’s a source of frustration, disputes and tedious admin. We are on a mission to make sales commissions transparent, easy and most importantly: motivating.

The role

We’re looking for experienced and talented backend engineers who can design and develop elegant solutions to tricky problems. This will involve:

  • Working closely with the frontend developers implementing features outlined in the specifications and prepared Figma designs.
  • Developing well-tested performant GraphQL and REST APIs.
  • Maintaining high test coverage and code quality.

We have a professional development environment, following usual best practices (CI/CD, high levels of test coverage, code reviews, etc). We value clear communication and integrity.

Our Tech Stack

  • Python3.8+
  • Django
  • PostgreSQL
  • Graphene/GraphQL

Our tech stack also includes the following, so relevant experience would be beneficial:

  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Google Cloud
  • Terraform
  • CircleCI
  • Rust
  • React
  • Typescript
  • Styled-Components
  • Relay/GraphQL

What we are looking for

  • Excellent communicator, in both written and spoken English
  • Experienced in designing, implementing and providing a means of testing high-quality software.
  • 4-year degree in computer science or other technical/scientific field.
  • Familiarity with our tech stack

About our work culture

We are an informal company with a transparent, friendly and fast-paced work culture. It’s an inspiring place to work, because we are good at what we do and we love doing it. In a startup, it’s all about figuring stuff out – fast. We’re efficient and we respect each other’s time. When we make mistakes, we happily admit them and try to do better next time. The best ideas win and we don’t waste time on politics. Everyone, in any role, takes ownership of our product and the customer experience, and we make it a little bit better every day.

What we offer

  • competitive salary
  • compelling equity package
  • budget for whatever hardware / software you might need
  • 26 paid vacation days, +1 day per completed year of employment, up to a max of 30
  • flexible hours

At EqualTo, we believe a happy developer is a productive developer :) So we provide high-quality code review and CI/CD infrastructure to allow you to quickly build and test new products and features.

EqualTo is a Software-as-a-Service company based in Germany. We create transparent sales commission software that everyone understands. Commission plans are built to motivate people. But instead they can become a source of tedious admin and frustration. Many companies use spreadsheet voodoo to run commissions, only to find that it doesn’t scale. Do you know how much time you are spending every pay cycle on manual approvals, data collection and emailing? Is it clear to sales how their comp plan works? Is a lack of transparency causing disputes and straining relationships? Does everything depend on a single spreadsheet guru, who might one day be gone? EqualTo is the product we wish we had when we ran our previous SaaS company. The first truly transparent, self-service commission tool, combining the best of both worlds: the flexibility of spreadsheets with the scalability of SaaS. Join us to reduce your admin and bring transparency to your incentive plans, so they do what they are supposed to do: motivate people and drive performance.
