Software Engineer - Platform

Job description

Build backend and infrastructure for SaaS Backstage.io


Company Overview

Roadie is improving developer effectiveness in engineering organizations across the globe. By helping companies adopt and use Backstage, the open-source developer portal and service catalog developed at Spotify, we are making developers' lives easier and more productive.


We are a fully remote, seed stage startup, backed by some of the best investors in the DevTools ecosystem. From developer first VC firms like Boldstart, to individual angels like Guy Podjarny - the founder of developer focussed security company Snyk and Adam Gross, the ex-CEO of Heroku.


Though our company is young and has grown quickly, we have maintained a tight-knit culture and way of working. We are 30% woman or non-binary and we’re spread across 6 different European countries.


We aim to create a company culture where individual employees are empowered and trusted to do their best work. We are focused on collaboration, learning, and community conscientiousness.

What does my day to day look like? 📅
