(Senior) Backend Engineer (f/m/x)

What we do

At Bird, we're solving a problem that is a pain for many, costs the industry billions and something we've probably all experienced at some point - software bugs.

We're seeing more digital applications being built than ever, which means more software bugs. While the way software is built has advanced leaps and bounds, the way we fix bugs, hasn't.

Bird combines screen recording with automatically captured technical logs to allow even non-technical people to create proper data-rich bug reports - make it much easier and faster to fix bugs. Our vision is to help companies build products that work perfectly, taking care of quality so that companies can focus on building better features.

We believe in empowering our employees to do what they do best. For engineers, this includes options to explore your talents and interests in frontend, backend, or both. We are also pragmatic, keep processes lean, and cut back on unnecessary meetings. This means that you will not only be encouraged to pursue your interests, but will also receive the necessary space to do so.
