Full-time position based in Berlin with flexibility.
We believe that people spend too much time on countless nuisance
tasks and life admin.
It does not need to be this way!
Saiga will radically and fundamentally change how we manage our lives, becoming the focal point of the entire administrative and bureaucratic life of people and their households. We use machine learning and UX magic to turn admin into a joyful and positive experience.
Saiga is founded by Karl Moritz Hermann who was previously CEO of the AI research company Dark Blue Labs (sold to Google) and a senior staff researcher at DeepMind. We are backed by some of Europe’s most ambitious VCs and experienced Angel investors, giving us the runway and support to build a category-defining and impactful company.
Working closely with the UX team as well as Karl Moritz you will develop the various customer-facing parts of our product. Combining your skills in design and development, you will be intimately involved in all aspects of our frontends, shaping these products as the company evolves.
As our first frontend engineer you will determine suitable frameworks for building our mobile and web apps and bring those applications to life. Over time we will build a team around you to double-down on these efforts and expect you to be involved in the recruiting and hiring process for that team.
On the engineering side of this role, you will combine the agility and pragmatism required to move quickly in an early stage startup with the attention to detail and diligence required to build and enable beautiful experiences. Your code will be a joy to read and easy for others to understand and build on.
We know that box-ticking is dull and that nobody fits all the boxes. Even if not all of this applies to you, we'd love to hear from you!
We are an equal-opportunity employer and value diversity. (Really!) We consider all applications equally and strongly encourage people from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech to apply. We can help with immigration.
To apply just forward your LinkedIn or CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you want to stand out, please add a short text describing an unusual bit of life admin that you have to deal with or an ingenious solution you have applied to some aspect of your regular admin work.
Our hiring process is reasonably streamlined (initial chat, meet some of the team, technical interview, final conversation) and designed to give both of us ample time to decide whether we'd be excited to be working with each other, as well as giving you all the information you might need to make an informed decision.
