At Actiondesk, we're building the future of spreadsheets. Spreadsheets are used by around 1 billion people in the world, yet were designed in the 80's and haven't been reinvented since.

Actiondesk is a full fledged spreadsheet software with 3 key features aka superpowers:

- The ability to Import data from any data sources and having that data refreshed automatically
- The ability to tie in data from a spreadsheet to data in another system (CRM, database etc). Whenever you make a change in the spreadsheet, it reflects in the initial data source.
- The ability to trigger “actions” with an excel like formula on a one off basis or an automated schedule. Think daily slack messages or emails.

All of this using only excel-like formulas.

We're recruiting someone to be in charge of our backend. We are a small and very ambitious team, each member has a big impact, a lot of autonomy and has fun tackling huge technical challenges on a daily basis.

- Self-starting and entrepreneurial
- Passionate about building an ambitious product and solving big problems
- An expert in Scala or functional programing

- Very comfortable with uncertainty and changes
- Get shit done and don't make excuses

- Experience with Kafka or other PubSub messaging system
- Experience with Kubernetes
- Knowledge of Reactive Systems and/or Actor Model

What we offer:
- Lots of responsibilities & autonomy
- Being one of the very first engineers of the team
- Significant technical challenges
- Being part of a top level tech team
- We're a tiny team so your impact will be significant
- Significant equity (0.5%-2.5%)
