Senior Backend Engineer, Monetisation
What is VEED.IO?
At VEED, our mission is to make video creation accessible to anyone.
No hard-to-use equipment, painful learning curve, or keeping track of multiple subscriptions to take your ideas from record → share. With VEED, you can do this with a single tool.
In just a few years, we’ve gone from one user to millions. From no revenue to $12M+ ARR. From bootstrapped to backed by Sequoia, one of the biggest VC firms in the world. From a team of two to a team of 160+. And we’re seeking more talented, motivated and entrepreneurial individuals to join our growing team.
About the team
As VEED is rapidly growing in users and revenue, there is a lot of work to be done to optimise and scale our payments platform and provide the best possible user experience to our paying customers. The Monetisation team develops, maintains, and improves features and systems to support the company’s monetisation efforts - from our checkout to our payment processing systems, and everything in between.
What you will do

You do not necessarily need a university degree, but we would like to see theoretical knowledge in areas you have worked and are interested in. We're open to exploring new technologies and ideas and we look for people that will help us build great products.

Provide mentorship for Engineers on your team to help them grow in their technical responsibilities and remove blockers
Drive innovation within the team with a willingness to experiment and boldly confront problems of immense complexity and scope
Proactively seek out difficult impediments to our efficiency as a team (“technical debt”), propose and implement solutions that will enable the team to iterate faster
You are based in Europe.
You are proactive. You are motivated to understand product/technical challenges and provide the best solutions
You have proven experience as a Backend developer, with knowledge of NodeJS and other relevant technical areas
You have a good understanding of testing best practices and different testing methodologies (integration, unit, e2e), and preferably have worked with testing tools such as Storybook and Jest before.

We think what matters is people. After all, a company is just a group of people. We don’t care about where you’re from, what school you went to or where you worked before. If you’ve done exceptional work, we want to hear from you.
Join us on our mission to make creative storytelling with video simple and accessible for everyone.
