Principal Backend Engineer (Firebase)

Netherlands, Noord-Holland, AmsterdamEngineering

Job description

Help us reinvent the hybrid work experience.


Say what?

Hybrid working has been adopted and embraced with unprecedented speed. Now that we’ve all had a taste of the flexibility it can offer, there’s no going back. But freedom comes at a cost. Hybrid work has added 25% more meeting hours to the average workday.

What if you could miss a meeting without missing out? What if catching up was easier than sitting in? What if an hour of discussion could be digested in just 7 minutes?

At Carv, we’re building a meeting intelligence platform like no other.


The team

We've been there before, and we absolutely loved it; building a company, taking a rough idea, and turning it into a global market leader. We did it once, and we are doing it again. The Product & Engineering team, responsible for the design and development of the Carv.com platform, is mission-critical for our success. For this team, we are looking for a new Senior Backend Engineer.


The role

The Senior Backend Engineer will drive and contribute to developing the platform's initial release. Our ideal candidate understands the balance between fast delivery and becoming future-ready on a strategic level. In execution, all team members get their hands dirty. We have a boots-on-the-ground mentality where we all contribute and pick up the pieces when needed.

Building a plane while flying it; that's what it can feel like when growing a development team while working towards a first release. We expect the Senior Backend Engineer to support new team members' onboarding and build a great development culture. With the team's growth, new career opportunities will arise fast for the ones who are ready.

What we offer

A very attractive package with a generous salary and stock option plan is waiting for you. But more importantly, we offer the excitement of building a new company, from scratch. The Carv.com Management team has 15+ years of experience steering a technology / SaaS company to become a global market leader. So, if you want to be part of a start-up but don't want to start in an attic, this is your chance.

On top of that, we offer:

  • Unlimited PTO;
  • Visa & Relocation Support;
  • Latest MacBook Pro;
  • Personal Development Budget;
  • Hybrid working environment.

Job requirements

  • Deep understanding of Firebase;
  • Deep understanding of GCP;
  • Deep understanding of Firestore;
  • Previous experience in a high-growth startup / scale-up environment;
  • Must have experience with serverless architectures, APIs, and integrations;
  • Experience in agile methodologies;
  • Excellent English communication skills;
