Technology, Product & Design

Senior Software Engineer

(Kotlin/Backend)

Superside is looking for Backend Engineers at all levels to help us build a product that strongly impacts the creative industry.

We’re building Superspace, a DesignOps system, that allows our globally distributed team members and customers to work together remotely. We enable seamless creative collaboration and project management thanks to features like briefing, staffing, design feedback and asset delivery. You’ll be a part of a forward-thinking Staffing team that values ownership, initiative and growth.

Reporting to the Engineering Manager, you’ll get to collaborate with people across different departments, building technology and processes that will directly impact the product and the business.

What you'll be doing

What you'll be doing

  • Build, test and ship features like chat, staffing, project management, design collaboration, integrations, workflow editor and more
  • Be part of important product discussions, and discuss with product managers, UX designers and other engineers
  • Create and contribute to technical specs and testing/rollout plans
  • Mentor and support teammates to help them grow
  • Be part of important technical difficult discussions (we're not looking for people to only execute but really participate in solving an issue with innovative thinking)

Our biggest challenge right now

Moving forward, the Tech, Product & Design department is decomposing the business domain into isolated bounded contexts while mitigating the technical constraints related to the growing product usage. Our aim is to foster more independence so we grow fast as a department.
As we continue encouraging a knowledge-sharing environment inside the team, there's an opportunity to grow within the role. We're looking for hard-working team players and focused individual contributors who speak up their minds and enjoy actively engaging with team members.

  • See something you want to improve? Awesome. We’re a flexible and collaborative team that is always learning and growing
  • Disrupting a massive global industry with a huge market opportunity

We’re building Superspace, our DesignOps system

It allows our users to focus on the design production instead of wasting time and energy on all the operational activities that come with it. We enable seamless remote creative collaboration and project management across the world thanks to features like briefing, project management, staffing, design feedback and asset delivery. This result in faster delivery without compromising the quality of the design work.
And this is where you come into play

And this is where you come into play

We are growing quickly and looking for software engineers at all levels on all our teams across product and infrastructure. Most of our software engineers would describe themselves as a T-shaped engineer with one skill they are expert in (e.g. frontend, backend or DevOps), and multiple skills they are familiar with.

Hiring process

This is our general hiring process, it might be adjusted for certain roles when necessary.
45min introduction call with a Talent Partner to learn more about Superside and your experience. No need for formal prep beforehand!

An initial interview between you and someone from the team to get to know each other and learn more about how we work.

This is where you get to show us your technical skills. We've gotten rid of the old algorithmic, theoretical type of questions and provide real-world testing scenarios/questions that are relevant to our current stack environment. The ability tests have been selected to measure the skills and competencies needed to succeed in the role.

1-hour discussion regarding your technical experience. This is your chance to walk us through your work and the logic behind it. During the discussion, you will be given the opportunity to present your thoughts on different aspects of the development arena.

The last meeting with the Management team will last around 1 hour and it’s another chance to talk about our mutual expectations, address any concerns, and dive deeper into how you could be successful in Superside.
