In 2022, Instabee was founded after combining Budbee and Instabox - two leading last-mile delivery companies with three consumer-facing brands: Budbee, Instabox, and Porterbuddy. Instabee serves millions of consumers across Europe with convenient deliveries and is on track to become the leading European e-commerce enabler. Always with the consumer at heart.
We’re fast, both in terms of parcel delivery and when it comes to growing our business. So far our journey has taken us from Sweden to the rest of Scandinavia and parts of continental Europe, but we have no plans on stopping anytime soon. As we continue to expand, the complexity of Instabee grows in parallel. With that in mind, we’re now looking for a Staff Engineer to help us on the journey ahead.
Some of the things you’ll do
As a Staff Engineer, you will work across multiple engineering teams. What you do on a daily basis depends on what your teams need help with. One team might be doing a major overhaul of a legacy system they just inherited, another might need input on what authentication provider to choose, and a third might currently be in a great state with little need of support. Thus, what you do for a team depends on the team's current state and might change over time. Some common areas of support the SE can give to the team.
Support teams with hard technical problems or architecture
How and when to collaborate with other teams
How and when to address technical debt
Pragmatism: How to incrementally address a problem, or when to move slowly and carefully and when to move fast and loose
Our engineers make some of the most important decisions for the company and our products. We’re looking for people who enjoy learning, sharing, and working with other developers to solve new and interesting problems. You will also mentor more junior engineers and get the chance to see them grow and take on more complex problems.
When you join us, you’ll have a part in deciding the technologies that we use.
What We're Looking For
At Instabee we value individuals who are keen to learn and have an eagerness to develop their skill set as well as mentoring junior colleagues. You master several different technologies but you have no problem in picking up new ones. Some examples of what we at Instabee use are Node.js, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Redis, GCP/GKE, and Terraform.
If you're a skilled problem solver who loves coding and making complex things work, then this is the place for you. Beyond that we imagine that you have some of the following points on your resumé:
+10 years of experience
Experience in software development in a fast-paced, innovative, and at times, complex environment
Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English
Have led major technical initiatives
Strong mentoring skills
If this is you then we can’t wait to meet you!
What you’ll get
We can promise you that you will be challenged, develop your skills and have the opportunity to work with truly amazing and competent colleagues. If you like changes and want to set new processes and ways of working - this is the place for you!
Of course, we have all the necessary and standard benefits in place, but in addition to this, we can also offer:
🌇 Sky-High Office: Modern and newly renovated with a 360-degree view around Stockholm. 🐶 Puppy Friendly: Bring your dog to work - we've got a whole floor for our furry friends! 🍸 Rooftop Fridays: Chill out at our Friday rooftop bar with the best views in town 🥐 Wednesdays Tech Breakfasts: Fuel your midweek with tech talks and tasty bites. 👾 Tech Demos: Dive into the latest innovations with our regular tech showcases. 💻 Modern Tech Stack: Work with cutting-edge technology every day. 🏓 Fun & Games: Ping pong, Shuffleboard, Foosball, and even a Karaoke Room for your leisure time. ⏰ Flexible Hours: Hybrid setup with working hours that adapt to your lifestyle. 🎂 A Day Off on Your Birthday: We love to celebrate, so enjoy your birthday to the fullest with a day off each year! 👶 Parental Pay for Six Months: Step away from work and provide the best care and love to your little one.
Diversity and inclusion are very important to us and we are committed to creating an inclusive work environment. We want to be a workplace where everyone’s perspectives and opinions are valued, and we are dedicated to creating opportunities for all employees to thrive and reach their full potential.
