Work with our infrastructure team on our infrastructure, based on Terraform and Kubernetes, to increase reliability and improve delivery of our products. Actively participate in our sprint meetings, give presentations in the technical deep dive meetings and attend our paper club. Learn together with your co-workers, by following your intellectual curiosity to learn about new markets and technologies as well as by participating in our active feedback culture.
Ideal, But Not Required

Work with colleagues that lift you up, challenge you, celebrate you and help you grow. We come from many different backgrounds, but what we have in common is the desire to operate at the very top of our fields. If you are similarly capable, caring, and driven, you'll find yourself at home here. Make an impact and meaningfully shape an early-stage company. Experience a truly flat hierarchy and communicate directly with founding team members. Having an opinion and voicing your ideas is not only welcome but encouraged, especially when they challenge the status quo. Learn from experienced mentors and achieve tremendous personal and professional growth. Get to know and leverage our network of leading tech investors and advisors around the globe. Receive a top-of-market equity and cash compensation package. Get access to a self-development budget you can use to e.g. attend conferences, buy books or take classes. Use the equipment of your choice including meaningful home office set-up. We do support fully remote set-ups. Make use of our relocation support if you're moving to Berlin. We can help with immigration.
We're eager to meet talented and driven candidates regardless of whether they tick all the boxes. We're looking for someone who will add to our culture, not just fit within it. We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underestimated and underrepresented in tech to apply. We seek to actively recognize and combat racism, sexism, ableism and ageism. We embrace and support all gender identities and expressions, and celebrate love in its many forms. We won't inquire about how you identify or if you've experienced discrimination, but if you want to tell your story, we are all ears.
