Back-End Engineer

Job description

Famly is a state-of-the-art software platform on a mission to create the world’s leading solution for an overlooked market – nurseries & preschools. Our platform makes the daily lives of teachers, managers and parents much easier, by helping them organise and coordinate the many time-consuming tasks involved in running a successful preschool or nursery.


Famly has been in the market for 5 years, and is used by thousands of parents every day in UK, US, Germany and Denmark. We have received investments from prominent angel investors such as Klaus Nyengaard (Just Eat), Christian Birk (Endomondo), Alexander Aghassipour & Morten Primdahl (Zendesk), and Peter and Susanne Gjørup (Top Toy). We’re based in central Copenhagen, and are expanding our product market fit across various international markets. That’s why we need to add an extraordinary back-end engineer to our team.


Job Description

We’re looking for an ambitious and talented back-end engineer, who wants to learn and grow with the company. You will be working with a close-knit team of colleagues on a variety of technical challenges, while developing new features and improving on existing ones.

Core responsibilities:

  • Designing, developing, and deploying new features and services.
  • Managing core infrastructure (such as Kubernetes, MySQL, ElasticSearch)
  • Improving internal tools to ease development.


  • Proven work experience as a back-end developer
  • Experience with developing web applications
  • Experience working with cloud and container technologies (e.g. AWS, Docker, Kubernetes)
  • Teamwork skills with a problem-solving attitude
  • A desire to influence development practices as well as the tech stack.
  • An entrepreneurial spirit.

Extra credit:

  • Experience with functional programming
  • Experience with Kubernetes

This is the perfect opportunity to be a part of a great team of startup entrepreneurs, while being given the freedom to take personal responsibility and make an immediate impact.


We hold high ambitions on both a business and culture level and expect our new Famly member to share in our “never settle for mediocrity” attitude. That culture we mentioned? You’ll be part of an incredibly close team, with an unrivaled office location on Købmagergade in the centre of Copenhagen, Friday bars, coffee, lunch, laughs and learning!


We can’t wait to meet you!
