Senior Backend Developer

Job description

Tiptapp is a new way of moving things around. By using our app, people don’t need to own a car, but can instead have their stuff moved in a smarter and more sustainable way. And by giving people a simpler way to recycle and also reuse things through our platform, Tiptapp also enables a better circularity.

Our app matches you in real-time to other users that have extra space in their car and who have time to give your stuff a ride from a to b. You get instant help with deliveries, moves and recycling of items of any size.

Tiptapp launched in Stockholm in 2016. There are now over 200,000 users in the greater Stockholm area and our users love our product (NPS score of 79!). We have also begun our international expansion (in London and Lisbon), but we are just at the beginning. Despite the situation with Covid, the demand for Tiptapp’s services is growing and we are proud to say that we are cash-flow positive since the beginning of 2020!

We have global ambitions and there are a ton of things to do so we need more talents to join our remote-first team!

Who we are looking for

We'd like our new friends to be people who live and breath development and who'd love to be part of a fun and skilled team. We value skills, talent and experience but even more so attitude and willingness to learn and evolve.

We offer you an opportunity to play a key role in our small team with a clear influence in developing our core services.

  • Stay-healthy subsidy (5000 SEK/year)
  • Flexible work hours
  • Remote first work (we use WeWork in Stockholm as our extra hub for those who in need)
  • Work with a team that is obsessed with innovation and iteration
  • Be part of a company that has a real impact on the environment as well as the society
