The position

Job description

We’re seeking a highly skilled & hands-on Backend Engineer. This is a unique opportunity to join Tengo in the early team and make a significant impact on both the product and the technical stack. You will work closely with our CTO Yoann.

To date, our technical challenges encompass:

  1. Collecting open web data from hundreds of sources

  2. Structuring & enriching that data to make it valuable to suppliers

  3. Building a SaaS app that enable them to find tenders that match their business

  4. Creating features to assist these bidders in responding to the tender

The 2 first points will be your primary area of work ;-)

As Senior Backend Engineer, you will:

  1. Feed data to the Tengo product to bring value to users dealing with public tenders daily. This involves tasks like : scraping data from structured & unstructured sources, clean & enrch it, extract content from PDF files, index it in databases, … No previous scraping experience is required ;-)

  2. Collaborate with the Full Stack engineer to building the end-user app with features like multi-criteria search, alerting system, comment system

  3. Work with the CTO to challenge the architecture, striking the right balance between quick iterations & feature scalability

  4. Participate in the daily life of an early stage startup that is focused on one thing: building an ambitious product

Preferred experience

Our philosophy

Our tech team:

  • is pragmatic: we like to find the quick solution that delivers value instead of the perfect solution

  • loves end-user interaction: We want to step into the user’s shoes to build the best product for them. For example, we often answer tenders ourselves to experience the pain points. Everyone participates in discovery calls or provides support.

  • aspires to grow personally and collectively: we value feedback, humility, teamwork and improvement. We learn by reading, meeting others people, exchanging points of views

We hope that our values will resonate with you!

The ideal candidate

  • You have 4+ years of software engineer experience on coding SaaS apps in teams, with a focus on data or backend

  • You have previously defined technical implementations and challenged software architectural designs

  • You’re eager to join an early stage project, define a young product & get your hands dirty implementing it

  • You’re curious and enjoy exploring new areas (you might even grow to love tenders!).

  2. Call with Yoann, CTO to understand your previous experiences (45 min)

  3. Technical interview (on site) with Yoann, CTO (2h)

  4. Interview with Hugues, CEO (45 min)
