Mentimeter is one of the fastest growing startups in Sweden. Our vision is to transform presentations and meetings into fun and interactive experiences by making it easy to listen and to be heard, as well as create meaningful engagement. We are building a modern and diverse fast-growing profitable product-first tech company and are based in Stockholm.

Mentimeter serves hundreds of millions of users with services that we deploy roughly 40 times a week. With transaction loads up to hundreds of votes per second, we have to be sure we can scale while still delivering a fast and smooth experience.

We work in small, independent, cross-functional and self-organizing teams. The team's Product Manager, Engineering Tech Lead and Product Designer organize and plan the team's backlog with a focus on continuously delivering value to our users.

We are looking for a Frontend Platform Engineer to help us in scaling both our application and tooling to help support more users and our growing product engineering organization.

We offer a friendly but fast-paced environment where you will be challenged with technically difficult tasks and be given a lot of responsibility from day one.

Please note that we are an English-first company, meaning you don't have to know Swedish to work here. Make sure your application and relevant documents are in English.

What you'll do

As a Frontend Platform Engineer at Mentimeter you will be an integral part of our platform team; a team responsible for product team enablement, developer experience, and infrastructure. You will occupy an influential position within the engineering organization with room to suggest new technology and ways of working that will improve the quality and speed with which we ship code. This team’s decisions will greatly impact Mentimeter, our engineers’ productivity, and developers’ experience.

Your team will design, build, evolve, and maintain the foundational frontend ecosystem and underlying tools used by Mentimeter’s product engineering teams. The daily tasks will vary as we continue to tackle different problems with regards to scaling our organization. Some days you might be working directly on our typescript monorepo tooling in order to improve build performance, while others you could be working with product engineers to identify more scalable patterns for writing product frontend code.

Since Employee Experience (also known as Developer Experience) is very important to us, we expect you to have a role in influencing which tools, programming languages, and technologies you work with while helping us ensure we have a smooth software pipeline for fast and continuous delivery.

Work with great people

Soner
Front-end Developer
"Dog videos vs. Cat videos is the ever ongoing fight of Internet. Soner has clearly picked a side: Doggos. The cuter and hairier the better."
Federica
Business Development Director - Sales
"All the way from Italian metropolitan via small town of Switzerland to Stockholm to be a part of the Menti-family. It's like it was written in the stars (check the cancer sign)."
Anna
Product Manager
"Anna is a Stockholmer and a part of the Mentimeter KTH alumni crew. When she's not innovating at Mentimeter, she's doing jumping jacks on the handball court or partying in the USA."
Carl
Head of Brand
"As a kid Carl wanted to be a fashion designer, but ended up doing the next best thing - branding and PR. When he's not at Menti he's touring Sweden with his cover band (apparently they're terrible)."
