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. We are building a modern and diverse fast-growing profitable product-first tech company and are based in Stockholm. Mentimeter serves over 200 million users with 15 services that we deploy roughly 40 times a week. Some days we are receiving more than 150 votes per second which means we have some interesting challenges making sure we can scale to our ever-growing customer base while still delivering a fast and smooth experience.
Our core backend is currently built in Ruby and NodeJS while our frontend leans heavily on React and Typescript. We’re hosting on Heroku and AWS using Cypress.io, Concourse, GitHub Actions, and other tools for Continuous Integration. We work in small, independent, cross-functional and self-organizing teams. The team’s product manager and the team work together to organize and plan the team’s backlog using a Kanban/Scrum-mixed process, with a focus on continuously delivering value to our users. We are looking for talented frontend engineers to join our Product department. 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 Engineer at Mentimeter you will be an integral part of a cross-functional team implementing designs and user experiences that will affect millions of people all over the world. Depending on your skill set and personality, we will match you with the team that is the best fit for you (and vice versa). You should be curious about how to build fast, intuitive and well performing user interfaces with modern technologies in a team together with designers and developers.
You will try to strike a good balance between discovery and implementation work, between new customer facing features and managing tech debt and technical initiatives. We are in an exciting phase where the platform must evolve in order to ensure continued scalability of the product and an edge compared to our competitors. We are, for example, currently rolling out our own design system to all of our products, growing our test suite and maintaining our shared code in a monolithic repository.
We believe you have a few years of experience as a developer and through your experience have gained a good understanding of frontend development for the web. With where we are right now, we believe you'd ideally have some React experience, but would also welcome your application if you have a lot of experience working with other frontend frameworks that could add value.
In addition to being a good cultural fit (please see our core values below), we hope that you bring your passion for software development, scalable architecture and building great products. For us, is it important that everyone cares about code quality so an interest in both testing and automation will be something we will be looking for. Experience with writing test-driven frontend code is something we would appreciate but have no exact requirements for which framework you are used to.
Excellent communication skills and being able to work both independently and in teams are some other traits we are looking for with all of our colleagues.
Last but not least: Having a curious mindset, being open to learning & sharing knowledge and of course, that you are interested in working with our tech stack!

More about Mentimeter:
Mentimeter is a product-first, tech-heavy, fast-growing, inclusive and profitable startup built by engineers. Back in 2014, we felt that boring and inefficient meetings had to go, so we decided to create a platform to change this. Six years later, Mentimeter is recognized as the fastest-growing Swedish startup, with 200 million users and customers from over 220 countries; the journey has just begun.
We at Mentimeter believe in giving everyone a voice - regardless of who you are. So we build a platform that does just that. Our platform is not only our product but also our organization. It is a platform where people feel safe, where differences are embraced, a place where you can have fun. We strongly encourage applicants who are people of color, LGBTQ, women, people with disabilities, and/or formerly incarcerated people, and a college degree is not strictly required. To give everyone a voice, we need to be as diverse as our users.
Our core principles and basis for our culture:
Inclusiveness - transparency, equality and diversity
Work smart - good enough, but know when to excel
Professionalism - "the consultant mindset"
Be humble to other people’s work
The work environment is inclusive, respectful, non-political, fun and very professional. We make sure to excel when we need to, but never overdo it in order to maintain our work-life balance. With over 25 different nationalities currently working at Mentimeter, this is one of many ways we show that we embrace diversity. To embrace other cultures we also re-locate the entire team one month, once a year.

Our vision is to transform presentations, meetings and lectures by turning passive audiences into engaged contributors.

With Mentimeter, users become the best presenter they can be. Meetings become more productive, participants learn more and have fun whilst doing it.
We have more than 200 million users and customers in more than 220 countries. On our way of making the world a better place, one presentation at a time.
