Polar Analytics

Fullstack Lead Engineer - Fully Remote

Fullstack Lead Engineer

Fully Remote

Salary Range – €60,000-€70,000 per year + Equity

The recent world-wide COVID events taught us that you don’t need to be at the office to be productive. Polar Analytics Co-Founders David and Charbel, know that great developers can come from anywhere and can work from anywhere. Polar Analytics is one of those companies that from day-one is being structured as a fully-distributed company. Joining a remote-company will enable you to disconnect from your local constraints of limited workplace offerings and local salary while working for a growing international company. This is a career-move in which you can become a great global developer and not just a great local one.

The role is a full-time-long-term one, where you can work from anywhere!

This is a unique opportunity for a Fullstack lead engineer who enjoys traversing the stack to join a fully-distributed, fully-funded startup as employee #1 and to design and build the software of Polar Analytics (we are throwing away our MVP). All of this while working from home (or anywhere else), earning €60K to €70K/year + meaningful equity based on experience and fit.

Polar Analytic is all about empowering online consumer brands worldwide to grow faster and more profitably. We believe that indie brands are the future of commerce, and we want to help them take over traditional retailers. It starts with Data. Marketing & eCommerce teams currently spend more time pulling reports than generating insights. We are building the first full-stack solution where e-commerce merchants can connect all their marketing data, analyze them and get actionable insights. We are a data-centric company, where data is not a side-product but rather our core value. We founded the company at the beginning of 2020, and already serve 50+ D2C brands around the world. Our clients are creating the future of e-commerce by building beautiful brands, putting customers at heart, and providing more local and environmentally friendly products, which inspires us every day.
