Secfix is hiring a
Remote Senior Backend Engineer
Secfix automates security compliance for SMBs in Europe. We help companies get and stay compliant with standards such as ISO 27001, GDPR, TISAX, and SOC 2 in weeks rather than months.
Our platform integrates with a company’s tech stack (such as GCP, AWS, Azure, Google Workspaces, Jira, Gitlab, etc.), automatically extracts the data needed for compliance, and creates a checklist to become and remain certified. Our fastest customer finished their certification in 4 weeks instead of 12+ months, typically seen from older institutions.
We raised pre-seed funding from top German angel investors and recently closed our seed round from leading UK and German VCs after impressive growth. Now, the goal (with your help) is to become the market leader.
About the role:
Preferred experience & culture:
You love iterating and taking pride in owning customer-facing features from ideas to going live and strive for great visuals and usability.
You are a team player and communicate with other members and set up calls with customers if necessary to get feedback directly.
In our current growth stage, we want to achieve a lot with a small team. Priorities can change fast. Hence you are a strong believer that hard work and flexibility are qualities that an early startup employee should live by. You can pick up a customer problem, define it, and work on it.
You love speed and have high standards in writing clean, maintainable, and testable code.
You have 3+ years of experience in a fast-paced tech environment, startup, or scale-up where engineers wear multiple hats and define the products together with users.
You are a force multiplier for your team. You always catch up with new front-end trends, love building reusable components, and helping other engineers become better day by day.
You can communicate and structure your thoughts well both inside and outside of your team to ensure we ship products in time without getting lost in details.
You have experience in mentoring junior developers or leading a small team.
You have experience in working and improving a remote team culture.
You’ll design, develop, and maintain new user-facing features with beautiful and scalable UI components using Angular and TypeScript
You’ll contribute to new and existing products by shaping features with product and design teams.
You’ll implement state management and improved authentication across the platform
You’ll implement complex Angular components from drag & drop to the virtualized rendering of large data collections
You’ll mentor and develop junior engineers to help them become expert Secfixers
You’ll keep learning new technologies to improve our product and will structure complex product in simple deliverables
You’ll redefine best-in-class software development processes so that we can build an opinionated product for the European SMB market.
You’ll work closely with founders, tech lead, other team members, and users to ship features on schedule.

We are very proud of our Secfix values - and look for candidates who share them. They are:

We build everything in a smart way. We love working by YCombinator's principles and preach those to our team.
We create trust within our organisation. Transparency and ethics are within our DNA.
We are hacky. A functional prototype delivered within 2 weeks is worth more than a perfect solution delivered in 2 months.
We take ownership. Building a startup is about ownership and being accountable for timely delivery.
We are leaders of remote work. We are passionately building a culture where people can be productive working from anywhere.

👉 Please reference you found the job on Remote OK, this helps us get more companies to post here, thanks!
When applying for jobs, you should NEVER have to pay to apply. You should also NEVER have to pay to buy equipment which they then pay you back for later. Also never pay for trainings you have to do. Those are scams! NEVER PAY FOR ANYTHING! Posts that link to pages with "how to work online" are also scams. Don't use them or pay for them. Also always verify you're actually talking to the company in the job post and not an imposter. A good idea is to check the domain name for the site/email and see if it's the actual company's main domain name. Scams in remote work are rampant, be careful! Read more to avoid scams. When clicking on the button to apply above, you will leave Remote OK and go to the job application page for that company outside this site. Remote OK accepts no liability or responsibility as a consequence of any reliance upon information on there (external sites) or here.
