Lead Software Engineer for exciting proptech startup

Salary Competitive

Why is the process of renting your home such an old-school and painful experience, while you can rent a holiday home in a nice digital flow on Airbnb? Probably because it’s really hard to change a very conservative industry. But change is happening now! 

Join us and become instrumental in building a global end-to-end platform for long-term rental transactions which simplifies the rental process for both tenants and professional landlords. We’re building a digital experience, adding layers of machine learning and combining with a service level you only find in the top user-centric startups.

The role

You will take on a lead role in a tech team of five with plenty of ambition, experience and talent. You will be the primary driver when it comes to analyzing, deciding, implementing and documenting software architecture, devops, integrations and features. Furthermore, you will be a linchpin in ensuring the performance and growth of the tech team. Ideally, you are a senior software engineer with well-rounded experience now looking to take on lead responsibilities, or maybe with a few years of experience as a lead already.

What we are looking for

  • Proven development experience. As a teacher and mentor to team members, you need to be seasoned in web development and devops.

  • Communication skills, respect and humility. We work with autonomy, but as a team.

  • A passion for full-stack development. As a key player in the team, you should have knowledge of - and eagerness to learn and manage - all parts of the stack and the pipeline.

  • Experience with devops, cloud computing and security. Ideally you're a curious, well-rounded profile. We’re using Google Cloud and Kubernetes, and experience with those platforms is certainly a plus.

  • Interest in - and experience with - modern technologies. We're using React/next.js, Spring Boot, Angular and MongoDB. The more you know about these, the better.

  • You take pride in quality and writing tests (unit, integration, end to end etc.) and refactoring code when needed is second nature to you.

  • A strong startup and Lean Kanban / Agile / Scrum(ish) mindset. You’re joining a fast-paced startup, so be open to changes. A track record in startups is an advantage.

  • You live in the Copenhagen area or close by. We're not looking for a remote worker, but for someone who can work from the office and add to the company culture.

What we offer

  • Competitive compensation.

  • Experienced and talented colleagues with high ambitions and a good mix of domain experience and SaaS startup experience.

  • An exciting startup journey on a growth trajectory.

  • A nice working environment in our office in the heart of Copenhagen, on Vesterbrogade very close to Hovedbanegården.

  • Lots of flexibility, autonomy, influence and room to grow.

About Propstep

Propstep exists to make renting a great experience. We’re an end-to-end platform for long-term rentals, which gives professional owners control and overview over the rental process. Tenants are taken from initial search to signed lease and deposit payment in a convenient flow.

Many of the top 20 property developers or investors in Denmark are already our customers and we have built a very popular platform for end-users with more than 55.000 users. Our ambitions are lofty and we’re on a path to take our great renting experience into new markets in the near future.

We’re crazy enough to think we can change the world. To do that we have started Propstep Rebuild where we plant trees and rebuild nature on the behalf of each new tenant we help move into a new home (which always comes with a large CO2 footprint).
