At Planday, our vision is to power the global workforce marketplace by connecting people to relevant and meaningful work, and to help businesses build an engaged, high performing and flexible workforce through our shift-scheduling platform. We’re all about meaningful work for customers, users and employees.

We're growing fast and looking for a new colleague to join as a Platform Backend Engineer.
