reMarkable is a Norwegian tech company on a mission to help people think better through technology in a distracted world. In what feels like no time at all, we've gone from a small startup to one of the fastest-growing tech scaleups in Norway.

Following the successful launch of reMarkable 2, which was named one of TIME's top 100 inventions of 2020, we made 130th place on Financial Time’s list of Europe's fastest growing companies in March 2023.

About the role

To support our growth, we need more talented developers to deliver the reMarkable experience to our ever-increasing customer base. Are you a language agnostic backend developer who also can contribute to frontend development?

You will contribute to state-of-the-art architecture, providing the best possible customer experience from the following applications

The reMarkable.com Web Store is the key part of our sales. This is where we showcase our products to the world. It is our biggest sales channel, with millions of monthly visitors. Under the hood, it’s all about making the order process easy, safe and sound by handling checkout, payment, and delivery.

As a Software Engineer in our Cloud unit, you will take part in one of our Store teams and work closely with a broad range of disciplines to ensure that we have a robust, scalable and modern platform that is ready to tackle all of the future commercial initiatives in the Market tribe.

At reMarkable, you will gradually take more responsibility and ownership of our technical solutions and take part in an ongoing initiative to rebuild and refactor our infrastructure to serve a massively expanding customer base on a global scale. We have a certain luxury of not having to deal with much legacy and outdated technology. Consequently, we work with modern tools, and are constantly re-evaluating our tech-stack to keep up with technology landscape shifts.

“Our mission is to make the website solutions and applications inviting, professional and intuitive. Technology is inherently scalable, and scalability is our most important tool for creating advanced functionalities that are perceived as both natural and flexible by all our customers.”

- Jerome Ginss, VP Technology
