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.
Software is what drives our company. And we are looking for a senior 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. 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.
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 the idea and business needs through a pretotype. When we have gained insights and understand the jobs-to-be-done we can either build a little more software and improve the process in a prototype stage, or we decide to do the “real” implementation of the business logic in our main stack. We learn a lot during the initial phases with few resources and can implement the product with higher confidence. This process is the key to how we stay fast and agile.
The Product team uses Scrum. You will not be boxed in a niche, 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.
You are an experienced software engineer who is 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, work in a small team and also challenge the existing processes, the team, the product and yourself.
You should have at least 4-5 years of software development experience, preferably working with Java and TypeScript. Some experience with AWS Lambda, SQS, SNS, and DynamoDB is welcomed. We expect that you have a “get stuff done” attitude.
It is important that you thrive in a very fast-paced environment and that you are passionate about what you do.
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 made an impact on us as well, so to the extent it is possible, we can work from home during this.
Besides offering a leading role and a lot of 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
