We’ve set out to build something beautiful – if you can help us we’d love to hear from you!
How to apply
Please simply send an email with your CV and a short sentence why you’re a good fit for the role to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t spend time writing elaborate cover letters or outlining your motivations – we haven’t met yet and that’s perfectly fine. Also: no need to address it to someone in particular, “hey guys” etc. is absolutely fine.
What we love to see though are projects of yours, things that you’ve worked on previously or are passionate about or personally proud of. For developers this can be a Github repo, a demo or your open source project. For writers and marketeers it can be a link to an article you’ve wrote or to your 100k Twitter followers. If you’re applying for an HR or operations role, let us know how you’ve made someone’s life better.
The interview process depends on the role. Usually we meet at our offices where you’ll have a chance to experience the location and atmosphere and meet the team. For technical roles we start with a hands on pairing test followed by an interview about architectural questions and technologies with some of the developers. We like to keep everything very hands on and relevant to what we’re building, so no “Why are manhole covers round”/ “how would you implement a linked list / binary tree“-nonsense.
For marketing and operations roles, we’ll do a mini-project or planning exercise, followed by a chat about past experiences and structural approaches.
Finally, we close with a quick chat about salary expectations and other technicalities – so please think of a number before you arrive. Generally, we’d like to keep the entire interview within a single, ca 2 – 3 hour session and let you know one or two days after.
What kind of techstack are you using?
Deepstream is a compiled Node.JS / C++ hybrid (which is a better idea than it sounds)
Client libraries are written in their respective language, e.g. C, Java, Swift, Node etc.
What kind of hardware are you offering?
We’re flexible, most developers use Mac, most operations and marketing people are on Windows, but we’re usually happy to accommodate either. Similarly, if you need a specific software for what you do, we’ll buy it. No point making you learn Corel Draw to save 50€ on an Adobe CC license.
