Backend Software Engineer

Salary Unpaid


You will be working with the backend side of product development. We are solving a crucial problem in an underserved space; Students are more stressed than ever before, and yes, curriculums are becoming longer, but it doesn't have to be that way. TurnIvy is a new, Copenhagen-based app that distils the core principles from academic fields into a powerful, podcast-like format for students to get a leg up on their courses on the go.

Why Join

This is a rare opportunity to work at a fast-paced, unconventional, EdTech startup that believes the sky is the limit. Your decisions and output will impact our current operations and the direction we go in the future. In October, we launched our beta app (both iOS and Android) and have since focused on gathering feedback and gradually improving it. Our developers, Jonas and Haseeb, are getting very busy and need your help to work on our pipeline and collaborate on exciting new ideas. Besides Jonas and Haseeb, we consist of two founders, Tomas Zdychavsky and Gustav Nørrelund, and an advisor, Asbjørn Holmlund. Joining our team is a guarantee for personal and professional growth. Compared to big, established companies, we don't have many predefined processes and fixed procedures, which means your ideas will be able to have a tremendous impact. We want to start off with an internship (1-3 months) but are highly interested in establishing a partnership where you join the team and acquire equity.

What you’ll do

As the Backend Software Engineer, you will be responsible for tailoring the backend structures to enable the process of implementing new features and corrections into the app. For instance, that could be when illustrations have to be stored backend in order to be showed frontend. Our app is built in Flutter and the backend runs on jQuery through Docker, AWS, KrakenD, Graylog, Redis and SQL. You will work directly with the founders and the current developers to get the app to new heights. Our team is understandable and realistic, and when you struggle, we will be ready to help you out.

You will help us develop and nurture long-term sustainable growth, building on our progress and learnings to date. We are continually doing new tasks and learning, and you will be an essential piece in the success of such a dynamic environment. You'll be a part of a strong team, meaning when you succeed, we all succeed.
