Senior Full Stack Engineer - Developer Experience

Salary Competitive

Synthesia is the world's first AI video generation platform. It's a video production studio in a browser; no cameras, no film crews. You simply choose an avatar, enter your script, and your video is ready in minutwhat we're working on here at Synthesia.

The Developer Experience team is fundamental to this mission, ensuring that our engineers have the tools they need to execute on their project goals, and developing new ways of working that allows for safe and efficient delivery of product features. For example, we’ve recently built out a capability around remote development environments, allowing engineers to provision an environment from scratch that’s ready for work in under 30 minutes.

This is a full-time, permanent role. You can work remotely in Europe or hybrid from one of our hubs in London, Copenhagen, Munich, or Amsterdam. Our base salary range starts at €100,000 (or a local equivalent) and your package would include stock options.


What you'll do at Synthesia:

  • You will work in end-to-end full stack software development, contributing to our tools written in JavaScript and Python, managing infrastructure with Terraform, and working within our AWS cloud environment.
  • You will have sole ownership of projects that span months, requiring you to have the ability to break a problem down into small steps that can be delivered and validated iteratively.
  • You will work directly with engineers in order to understand their challenges and collaboratively shape better ways of working.
  • You will evaluate your own work, leveraging our data pipeline and frameworks that we have established to understand the impact your features have on the ability for our engineers to be effective and pivoting where necessary.
  • You will consider the long-term direction of the team, making sure that we are developing the engineering capabilities that will allow us to stay ahead of the challenges we are likely to encounter in 6-12 months' time.
  • You will collaborate closely with a DevEx-focused counterpart in our adjacent DevOps team. 

What we're looking for:

  • At least five years of experience as a software engineer.
  • You have experience in a high-performing engineering team that is operating at scale. This could come from a scale-up environment or a more established organization recognised for building and shipping with a great engineering culture.
  • An ability to work across the stack, from basic UI interactions to automating the provisioning of infrastructure through Terraform.
  • Deep knowledge in parts of the stack, whether it be client or server-side.
  • Experience scaling engineering capabilities relevant to a product engineering team; remote development environments, short-lived application testing environments, managing shared data, and so on.
  • Strong alignment with commercial success.


At Synthesia, we expect everyone to…

  • Be an owner.
  • Focus on outcomes over inputs and plans.
  • Make the journey fun.
  • Default to simple.
