Founded in Copenhagen in 2017, LifeX is a rapidly-growing co-living company whose vision is to make anyone feel at home, anywhere in the world. In 3 short years, we have grown to over 70 apartments in the center of Copenhagen, Berlin, Munich, Paris, Vienna, and London with more than 350 active members. At LifeX we are driven by our purpose and desire to shape the future of living. We believe in giving people more time for great experiences through flexible, designed and community-centric family-style living.

With early investment from Founders, Cherry.vc, and stellar angel investors, we are planning to scale rapidly to take over Europe and beyond.

On a daily basis, you will be working on :
Development : You will be taking ownership of features development, working on the full stack (backend, frontend and mobile app), implementing new features to solve our members and internal problems, working on refactoring, bug fixes and flows that impact users.
Design: You will be able to imagine new features and share your ideas, usually by defining other teams needs and problems in cooperation with them.
WHAT TECHNICAL STACK WILL YOU BE WORKING ON

WHO WILL YOU BE WORKING WITH
The product team is a small team composed of a developer, a designer and our CEO who, with product background, provides direction and manages the team. Your direct leader and day-to-day manager is our developer Jordane.
We work closely with the other teams and have a lot of interactions with them to discuss members’ feedback, problems, needs and product roadmap.
WHAT WILL YOU NEED TO SUCCEED
Code fluency You should be inspired by our tech stack and have some experience with at least a part of it. We expect you to easily be able to translate solutions into code.
Problem solver We prefer to give our employees problems to solve, rather than solutions. We expect you to have a desire to learn about our members’ needs and other teams’ points of view.
Autonomy We give our team freedom and responsibility and expect you to take ownership of projects and tasks. We expect you to be able to make reasonable decisions when needed and search for answers.
Eager to learn We believe in learning on the go, and appreciate working with people who are humble enough to admit they don’t have all the answers, and who believe that learning, hard work and effort is what leads to higher achievement. We believe in the power of growth mindsets, regardless of your experience, background or age.
Curiosity We believe asking “why” is crucial to succeed. We want you to be curious about the world in order to solve problems from new perspectives.
Communication We expect you to be able to communicate an idea to anyone in the team regardless of their focus areas or background in order to ensure a smooth understanding within everyone in the team.
YOU WILL BE AN ADDITION TO OUR CULTURE AS:
You are a “do’er” that loves solving challenges head on, both alone and in cooperation with other teammates.
You are “compassionate” - you are empathetic when it comes to communication with your colleagues and you remain positive even in times of adversity.
You are “honest” - you are genuine and courageous and see giving and receiving honest feedback as a gift.
You are “trusted”- At LifeX we value freedom and responsibility highly, and therefore expect you to take responsibility for your actions, and own up to your decisions and mistakes.
You have experience from living abroad and can thereby directly relate the pain points we solve for our members on a day-to-day basis.
You will be joining a team of individuals who believe well-being, happiness and fun at work is the foundation for connection, support and engagement.
