Help build a multi-tenant SaaS serving 3500+ global companies. Create robust backend services capable of hundreds of requests per second. Join a team that’s redefining what product management systems can be.

Our Tech Stack

You’ll work with the following tools, frameworks, and languages:

  • Our stack is a Ruby on Rails backend with React.js and Typescript on the frontend
  • We are running Elasticsearch to power our Insights search
  • We are fully migrated to Kubernetes on AWS to enable an event-driven service architecture, using Kafka to let services communicate together asynchronously and resiliently
  • We are also exploring Typescript more and more (although we don’t see our Ruby development slowing down anytime soon!)

You’ll be expected to work with all of these technologies, but we aren’t expecting deep knowledge in every one. We strive to build everything backend by code and reliable pipelines that will get you on track at lightning speed. We’re always open to changes that will make us faster and better.

About you

We’re looking for someone with the following skills and qualities:

  • 2+ years of experience building backend systems
  • Experience with some parts of our tech stack is always welcome (messaging, AWS, k8s, Typescript, SPAs)
  • As a core member of our team, you care about solving real problems for real users
  • You like communicating with frontend or product management and you always keep the end-user in mind
  • Your code is clean and well tested; you own development, from discovery through to production deployment
  • You love to learn and constantly improve your skills, and you aren’t afraid to jump into new challenges
  • You could win a debate on tabs vs. spaces conducted entirely in English

About our remote team

In this position, you’ll join our fully remote engineering team (even from pre-Covid times :)). So you’ll be able to work wherever you want. However, to ensure that you feel connected to the company, your colleagues, and the Productboard culture, we expect that you’ll travel to our Prague office roughly every six weeks to collaborate with your remote teammates in person. If you’re interested in joining our remote team, please make sure you can tick off (most of) these requirements:

  • You’re self-organized and disciplined
  • You have amazing communication skills
  • You know how to make sure everyone on the team feels included
  • Nice to have: previous experience with remote work

You can look forward to the following benefits:

You’ll join a diverse and talented team, with plenty of opportunities for personal growth, impact, and learning.
