About us

Our goal @Zenjob is to match people with work that interests them by giving them the freedom to decide when and where they want to work through automation and digitalisation. We are organised according to these two value streams, with engineers embedded directly into cross-functional teams. As a Backend Engineer your main objective is to deliver features for our users.

  • Share your knowledge, including mentoring the engineers in your cross-functional team to help them grow and constantly improve
  • Actively participate in and drive agile approaches and processes
  • Support the company to grow in a healthy way by creating a feedback culture, and participating in hiring and capacity planning

Who you are
