We are Latana, a cutting-edge consumer insights platform that helps organisations to make better marketing decisions. Latana enables some of the hottest B2C brands, including Headspace, Tier and Revolut,  as well as with more established organisations such as Unilever and Greenpeace, to accurately measure and track how people perceive their brand. Our vision is to lead the development of a new generation of research technologies that enable us to better understand the needs, desires and preferences of people around the world.

About the Role 

As Senior Software Engineer, you will work closely with your fellow engineers, your Tech Lead and members of the Product team to deliver top notch software as part of a rapidly-growing company.

Some tools we currently use include TypeScript, React, Emotion and we deploy to Amazon CloudFront. More important than any tool is our relaxed yet challenging working environment. Our small engineering teams of 3–8 people are encouraged to solve their own problems with a great degree of freedom, to see their work through to completion and to take pride in – and full ownership of – the applications they work on. 

As a senior engineer you will set the standard for your team, taking initiative in setting estimates and delivering to both internal and external deadlines. You will find plenty of opportunities for career development, personal growth and technical problem solving as part of an upbeat, optimistic team of engineers who share your enthusiasm for open and empathetic communication.

Your Responsibilities

  • Develop new user-facing features
  • Build reusable, efficient and well-tested code
  • Work in a cross-functional team consisting of engineers, designers & product owner
  • Work in close collaboration with the main stakeholders to ensure technical feasibility of UI/UX projects
  • Participate in scope and planning of work
  • Mentor and guide technical team members to grow within the company

Your Skills and Experience

  • Proven expertise with JavaScript and the modern frontend framework React
  • Professional, up-to-date experience with CSS, and an understanding of recent movements in this space, such as CSS-in-JS
  • You know your way around Node.js, npm and its competing build systems, as well as cross-compilers and transpilers like Babel
  • Cleanliness in your work – you produce well-documented pull requests that can be understood by your colleagues, and you document the higher level behaviour of your applications
  • You take pride in testing your code whilst understanding the trade-offs that need to be made in some testing circumstances
  • An excellent command of written and spoken English. You understand that proactive verbal and written communication is a large part of software engineering

What We Offer

  • Challenging, yet encouraging work environment.
  • The opportunity to contribute to the success of a fast-growing, market-leading product.
  • Lifelong learning budget to contribute to your continuing education.
  • Yearly stipend for use on public transport or personal fitness via Urban Sports Club.
  • In-house coaching to help you grow personally and professionally.
  • Weekly Focus Day to facilitate independent work without interruption.
  • MacBook Pro and all the peripherals you need to succeed in our remote working package. 
  • Beautiful office in Berlin-Kreuzberg with the opportunity to work remotely. 
  • Regular team outings on our two company boats plus regular social events!
