You have experience recruiting and building engineering teams. You have a strong technical background and you are experienced in managing teams and processes. Curiosity, drive and passion are shared characteristics of all people at JustWatch and we are looking for these values in every person we are hiring. We only want people who are willing to constantly learn through challenging themselves and others. All of us also love to get things done and strongly believe in “done is better than perfect”.

A pragmatic approach towards continuously evolving a right-sized layer of structured process that supports the team — not the other way around
Familiarity with online marketing and the VOD industry is a plus, but not required
Problem-solving mindset and critical thinking attitude
Passionate about movies and TV shows
Build, lead and mentor a small team of passionate engineers
Scale the team while you scale engineering practices
Collaborate directly with Product and Product Design to help find smart solutions to our business challenges

Championing modern engineering culture, the use of best practices and ensuring the implementation of the latest technologies in an architecturally sound way
Later on, working with our infrastructure team in order to establish sane technical KPIs (SLIs, SLOs, error budgets) to carry the platform
We love challenging goals. We are questioning everything. We are always learning. And we are excellent in execution. We believe in the 80/20 rule and try to apply common sense and pragmatism to everything, so we are looking for people with business sense and a “no bullshit attitude”.
Sounds like you? Great, we’d like to meet you. Just send us a short mail that gives us an idea of what motivates you, why you want to work at JustWatch and how you think you will help us to achieve our goals. We are not interested in a perfect CV, or letters of recommendation. We just want to know who you are and who you want to become!
We are very much looking forward to meeting you.Apply to firstname.lastname@example.org
