Goals of this position

We're looking for a senior developer to join our product team to play a lead role in enhancing our product by:

  • Ensuring the quality of our code base. You know that code has to not only work but also be readable and maintainable. You have ideas on how to design such code and can also explain those ideas to your fellow developers.

  • Providing kind and thoughtful feedback on other developers’ code in pull requests and welcoming feedback on your own work too.
  • Actively contributing to shaping the processes and priorities of the dev team.


About you: You have...

  • An eclectic knowledge of modern web technologies. This position requires at least 5 years of professional experience, including experience with Elixir and the usual suspects of web development: Javascript, HTML, CSS, SQL (we use Postgresql). 
  • An open and considerate communication style.
  • A willingness to seek, give and act on thoughtful feedback.
  • An interest in seeing publishers getting paid for excellent creative content
  • Above all, you are motivated by the desire to play a key role in the development of the Steady product and to join a small team committed to making that happen.


Benefits of working at Steady

  • Be part of a mission that sustainably supports creators and publishers and helps guarantee an independent media landscape
  • Bring your own ideas to the table: We are still a small team and encourage you to experiment and dare to think differently
  • Choose your own benefits: Whether it’s a HIIT class or a supermarket voucher, you choose the benefit that’s right for you.
  • Work from anywhere in Europe - we are happy to figure out the legal hurdles together with you
  • Be part of our passionate team: Enjoy regular social events - virtually and twice a year at our Berlin office
  • 500 EUR per annum individual training budget 


Hiring Journey

As the first step in our process, we ask some simple screening questions which are separated from your name and marked blind, in order to reduce potential unconscious bias. Look out for the questions as the first step of the application. Later on, we’ll want to get to know you and your experience better as part of the interview process and will give you time to meet people from our team.
