As a Full Stack Engineer, you will be developing features for our two main sites, Kialo and Kialo Edu. You will be working closely with 18+ developers, along with the product design, QA and SRE teams. We have a beautiful office in central Berlin but, as most of the team prefers to work remotely, it’s up to you whether you want to use it. Candidates in and around Berlin are slightly preferred, as you’ll be able to join our monthly team events more regularly.

Kialo is the world’s largest argument mapping site: facilitating, capturing and visualizing the world’s hardest debates. We have grown into a community with tens of thousands of debates and millions of contributions since our launch in 2017.

Kialo Edu is our dedicated site for educators, which has grown to half a million users since launching in November 2019. Educators worldwide use it to teach critical thinking and facilitate thoughtful classroom discussion.

Join us and help teach critical thinking around the world.
