  • €55,000 - €70,000
  • Remote
  • Engineering

Hello! 👋

We're looking for a Senior/Staff Software Engineer to join in the Payroll Domain.

We want someone who will add positively to the team's culture, being fully remote and multi-cultural.

Payroll Domain 👛

Payroll is a key domain for Factorial's growth, and it's critical to our users too! Our mission is to make payroll effortless for companies: we believe preparing payslips should be a no-brainer with the right tools!

We don't calculate payroll ourselves, but we enable all the actors around the process to get the right data, at the right time and in the right format. Once we've provided it, we let experts do their magic!

To achieve this, we're currently split in 4 teams, with each:

  • 4 to 7 developers,
  • 1 product manager,
  • 1 product designer,
  • 1 engineering manager

The Engineering team at large

At Factorial, we have a team of +120 very talented fullstack developers. We are looking for someone who can wear many hats, work on abstract problems, and find creative solutions. We look for smart people who are curious, proactive and have good soft/communication skills.

We are not looking for a long list of skills and technologies. Our stack is Ruby on Rails for the backend and React/React-native for the clients, but it’s not mandatory to be proficient in those to be considered (most of the team came with other areas of expertise which is very enriching). We believe that someone who has good aptitudes and is hungry for learning is what works best.

If you’re looking for new challenges in a people-first company without depending on where you live, keep reading to know what we are looking for!

Your profile

  • You are a team player: You are comfortable helping your teammates, sharing your knowledge, reviewing their code and asking for reviews of your own.
  • You have a user-centric mindset: You know that the only reason we write code is to help our users to perform their tasks.
  • You are a learner: you want to improve your skills not only in the engineering field but across any other areas.
  • You are an owner: You like proposing new hypotheses and being responsible for building, deploying and validating them.
  • You love understanding: Breaking down complex problems into basic and shareable elements and you have evolved concrete implementations to abstractions before.
  • You are a polyglot developer: You have experience in several coding languages (especially for backend development), CI/CD tools and cloud technologies.
  • You are a mentor: You love to share your experience and expertise to help others grow.
  • You have few years of experience working as a software engineer.
  • You are comfortable communicating in English.

At Factorial we don't evaluate you by the years of experience you have, we evaluate your knowledge and skills. How? We have a Career Path with a rubric framework where we define what is expected for each experience level and skill. This framework allows you to know at which level you're right now and what you need to keep growing. As we love transparency, our Career Path includes the salaries for each level and we share it during the first interview to make sure we're aligned.

We're considering for this role Senior and Staff level, for each the annual gross salary is 55.000€ and 70.000€ per year respectively, no matter where you are in the world.

We're a remote-first product and engineering team so you can apply from anywhere in the world! English is the only language you need to join us.

Your daily life with us

You’ll start with a 2 weeks onboarding period, where you will:

  • Pair with each member of the team at least once, to see their current initiatives
  • Solve low-stake bug tickets or quick wins
  • Commit early and often thanks to our cloud dev environment (Gitpod every day all day)
  • Be fully integrated in the team’s rituals from day 1

After that, you will fully own the initiatives you work on: from definition in collaboration with the team’s PM (by writing RFCs to share with the rest of engineering), to deployment and communication.

You will be a product engineer, involved in discovering our customers’ pains and choosing the team’s goals with the OKR framework.

You will review your teammates’ code daily and get feedback on your own code at every pull request, from all team members, including juniors.

You will learn from the entire team, both on technical topics (performance, architecture…) and core skills, in an environment driven by engineering quality.

You will mentor junior profiles, making sure they learn from your experience.

Perks of being part of our team

  • Every engineer has a yearly learning budget of 1.000€
  • ESOP plan regardless of your location
  • Flexible working hours: Within range of the typical European timezones (GMT +/- 4), you own your schedule!
  • Full remote flexibility: work from anywhere
  • Online language classes available with Yolk Academy

And, if you’re in Spain:

  • Private health insurance with Alan
  • Save on meal/transport with Cobee
  • Save on gym membership and more with Gympass

Is this you?! Come change the world with us! 🚀  We #betonpeople 💜

The hiring process

If you apply, here’s what to expect:

  • A first conversation with Garance, the domain’s engineering director. It will be about comparing our expectations and making sure we match on a human level.
  • A second conversation with Antonio, the team’s engineering manager. This conversation is pretty similar to the first one, and depending on our calendars, we might do only one of them.
  • A tech interview with Antonio and 2 developers: that’s a conversation about technology, not an exam or a code review. We’ll ask you to send us a piece of code you’ve written recently and you’re happy with, to use as a basis for the conversation. If you don’t have anything we’ll focus on open questions, to evaluate your experience in web development typical key areas, like performance.
  • And that’s it! Feel free to request any other conversation you want, with team members or to address specific concerns at any time in the process.

The whole process is remote, using videoconferencing tools!
