Are you ready to be a technology leader in the SaaS space? Join epilot!

epilot is building a SaaS product to sell complex products online, focusing first on solving ecommerce in the rapidly transforming energy market. Our mission: Make selling complex products as easy as selling a pair of shoes online.

As Software Engineer at epilot you will be a driving force in shaping this mission. What makes working as a Software Engineer at epilot so special? Our unique engineering culture is defined by a few core engineering principles:
Among others, you can expect freedom and responsibility because we hire smart people who we can trust. We operate by principles and expect our teams to cultivate a strategic mindset.

We believe in ownership: you build it, you run it. We subscribe to this core principle of the DevOps movement. There is no dedicated Ops team who you can pass on the responsibility to take your code and make sure it runs reliably and scales to customers’ needs.

You should always show, don’t tell: Deliver working software early and frequently. We believe in the basic Agile principle of “Release early and release often”. This approach helps us manage risk and make better decisions by creating fast feedback loops between ourselves and our users.

We design software API First. Before we write a single line of code, we design the APIs of a service in a way that any other team, whether internal to epilot or external, can use the APIs interface with our service without prior knowledge.

Does this sound like an environment you want to work in? Then you could bet the right person to be an engineer at epilot!
