Junior Software Engineers to leading Danish PropTech scaleup

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated

Software is what drives our company. And we are looking for a junior engineer to be part of this journey. We build all our services ourselves and are completely rethinking how renting works – in Denmark and soon in multiple new markets. It has been our strategy from the beginning to hire for experience and to build a proper foundation, so you will join a team of experienced engineers.

Proper is more than efficient property management. Proper is a seal of quality, safety and reliability. Our service is a lean and automated process for landlords and tenants – providing transparency and trust in the rental market. We want the renting experience to be favorable. The process of renting out properties should be simple and tenants should feel at home. 

We scaled more than 30% MOM for 18 months and received our Seed round early 2020. Now we’re preparing for our Series A with the aim of reaching multiple countries and +100K tenancies.

About the job

We rely entirely on a serverless infrastructure on AWS. Most of our micro-services are written in Java, based on Clean Architecture and are event-based, using AWS Lambda, SQS, SNS, S3, and DynamoDB.

Our frontend is a React app based on Next.js, styled-components and our own component library built with Storybook. And yes, everything is written in TypeScript.

We build our product through a process inspired by Lean startup / design-thinking. First, we test ideas and business needs through pretotypes. Once we have an understanding of the jobs-to-be-done, we either move on to a prototyping stage, or straight to the “real” implementation if requirements have become clear. We learn a lot during these initial phases while using only limited resources. And we find that this process allows us to move fast and stay agile while giving us a high degree of confidence in the product we deliver.

The Product team uses Scrum. You will not be limited to a certain technology or area, but get responsibility across the product, and it is expected that you contribute to the team and use your skills broadly within the product team.

Needless to say, as we process the rent for thousands of homes and offices we are serious about security and privacy.

About you

We are looking for a software engineer with 2 years of experience, preferably working with Java and/or TypeScript. Interest in AWS Lambda, SQS, SNS, and DynamoDB is welcomed.

You are eager to be part of a very senior product team. As a person you thrive in a position where you have a lot of responsibility, opportunity to grow, and you are intrigued by the thought of working in a small team where you will get to challenge the existing processes, the team, the product and yourself. It is important that you thrive in a very fast-paced environment
 and that you are passionate about what you do. Most importantly, we also expect that you have a “get stuff done” attitude.

We have made a strategic decision not to have a remote office, so you must be able to work full-time at our office in Copenhagen. Of course, the current COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our company as well, so to the extent it is feasible, you can work from home during this period. 

What we offer

Besides offering a supporting role and influence in one of the fastest growing scaleups in Denmark, we offer you:

  • Ownership through our warrant program

  • Salary based on qualifications and results

  • Office by the beautiful lakes in the center of Copenhagen

  • Lunch in our café

  • Extensive private health insurance

We're looking for people with passion, grit, and integrity. We are often faced with the challenge of delivering fast so we can iterate quickly and create a better solution. Not sure if you fit the description perfectly, but you are excited about the opportunity? Then go ahead and apply. We’re looking for people, not bullet points. Let your skills and passion stand out, and set you apart, especially if your career has taken some extraordinary twists and turns. We thrive on diverse viewpoints, and people who think rigorously, not being afraid to challenge assumptions. Join us!

Please note that we do not consider candidates that can only work remote. 

We will conduct interviews on an ongoing basis.
