Teams who want to access, explore and understand their data today have two choices

  • Either their build adhoc reports in google sheets or Excel. These are messy, hard to maintain and not connected directly the data sources
  • Either use a Business Intelligence tool. These take efforts to implement, are not flexible and require every single user to go through a steep learning curve.

Our mission at Actiondesk is to let knowledge workers easily access, explore and understand their data, wherever it sits.

We aim to be as easy and flexible as a spreadsheet, and as powerful as a BI tool.

You’ll be a good fit if you’re

  • Self-starting and entrepreneurial
  • Passionate about building an ambitious product and solving big problems
  • An excellent engineer with a growth mindset

Nice to have

  • Experience with Scala or functional programing
  • Experience with Kafka or other PubSub messaging system
  • Experience with Kubernetes
  • Knowledge of Reactive Systems and/or Actor Model
  • While we don't expect you to be a stellar frontend engineer, if you can build features end to end, that's be a plus.

What we offer

  • Working with Scala 🤓
  • Lots of responsibilities and autonomy
  • Being engineer #4 of the team
  • Significant technical challenges
  • Being part of a top level tech team
  • We're still a tiny team (5 people), you'll have significant influence on company wide decisions
  • Significant equity

What will you do?

  • Own and build features end to end, starting by scoping the feature with our CEO / PM and designer.
  • Work on hard technical problems (performance, scalability, building a SDK, etc)
  • Make important architecture decisions with the rest of the team
  • Build a great product that our users will love
