ON BEING A INTERNAL TOOLING BACKEND ENGINEER AT BALENA
Balena is developing Jellyfish, an ambitious social knowledge database that the team uses to collaborate, without being blocked by departmental or hierarchal divisions. Jellyfish gathers all information company wide and makes it a platform to implement processes that enhance the team's productivity and understanding. Think of it as a cross between Slack and Excel!
The improved problem space visibility and communication flow that the platform provides to the team is then leveraged to help build and improve both internal and customer facing products. Multiple teams across the company are already relying on the Jellyfish platform for their daily tasks.
Jellyfish adopts a revolutionary and cutting edge architecture:
The Jellyfish team consists of a small group of tight-knit engineers who take pride on moving hyper fast without sacrificing quality by investing on automation, testing, and great engineering practices.
We don't require engineers to be already familiar with the technologies we use. We are happy to invest in people that showcase a strong understanding of the challenges of building secure distributed systems.

ABOUT WORKING AT BALENA
We come from 15+ countries, and we embrace a remote culture with flexible hours. To us, this means being highly productive while still maintaining a healthy work-life balance. You need to be able to work remotely, and have a dependable internet access available so you can join video calls.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We value knowledge and initiative more than educational and personal backgrounds, age, or location. We maintain a work environment in which team members are treated with respect at all times and in which thoughts and ideas can be shared openly.
We communicate proposals, discuss with others in the team and accept feedback if it makes the result better. We value the ability to learn, which is more important to us than knowledge of specific technologies. We know that learning fast means being outside our comfort zone, which is OK -- we'd rather learn than let our assumptions get in our way.
We're delighted to hear about you! Send us your CV, with a focus on what you can bring to the team. Please include in your cover letter a paragraph about something you worked on that you found technically appealing or exciting.
