The most exciting parts.

  • Change the way teams work with and visualise data. What makes this such a complex and exciting challenge is striking the balance between building something powerful, flexible, and robust enough, yet intuitive enough for any user regardless of their technical ability or background.
  • Zero to one. As one of the founding members of the engineering team, you'll have strong influence and ownership over large parts of the product, the codebase, and the company. You'll be working directly with the CTO and a tight-knit team of engineers to constantly maintain balance between moving quickly now while still building a maintainable foundation that will be durable for years to come.
  • Constant stream of new challenges. The pace at which Graphy is growing brings new technical and business challenges each day. There's a very large and exciting opportunity ahead for us which requires us all to wear multiple hats, and keeps every day exciting.
