We're an Amsterdam-based team of 23 (and counting) with 10+ nationalities amongst us – a varied bunch of “Citizens of The World” with a range of cool skills and hundreds of thousands of kilometers under our travel belts. We also have something important in common (other than our very well-worn passports): We want to change the way people travel.
And that's exactly what we're doing, with the travel app to plan, track, and remember trips in a smart and beautiful way. Polarsteps has over 3 million users already, but, for us, this is just the start. You see, there are amazing new features on our roadmap, and we need even more talented & ambitious people to help us on our journey.
Engineering at Polarsteps
If you haven't seen our app yet, go ahead and check it out – you'll see that we care (a lot) about providing a seamless, top-quality user experience for every one of our travelers. In fact, everyone – from our CEO to our support team – really strives for excellence throughout our whole funnel. For a backend engineer this really creates the possibility to craft the things you implement to perfection (with a whole company cheering you on as you do so), all the while having to balance that out with a practical mindset to avoid over-engineering mishaps.
Our constant innovation is done with a clear aim: to turn Polarsteps into the best travel app out there – which is probably why Google created this awesome video about us, and we've been featured multiple times in the App Store, as well as in Apple’s WWDC keynote speeches of 2017 and 2018.
All of this brings along massive year-over-year growth, and with that - the growing pains. So if besides the challenges inherent to feature development in the complex, multi-layered travel domain, you enjoy thinking about the performance and scalability aspects of a platform, you're in for a lot of fun with us.
And because we're a small team, the impact you can make from day one is huge: everything you ship will affect almost 3 million users.
