About Session Lab


Workshop Planning Made Easy. SessionLab is the dynamic way to plan your #workshop and manage #collaboration. 💚

The Role


SessionLab is the leading platform for workshop facilitation and process design. And we’re not just building the platform, our mission is to empower people to create change. We do that through technology that enables better facilitation. More than 200.000 professionals are using our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product to design and deliver meaningful workshops.

We are looking for a Senior Full-Stack Engineer to help us scale our platform and deliver more value to our customers.

You'll be our 5th engineer, working closely with our Tech Lead and other engineers, as well as our designer and product manager. You’ll build new and exciting features, improve platform security, and maintain the stability of our infrastructure. You will have a chance to work on and influence our whole stack with a higher focus on the frontend in the beginning. 

We are a bootstrapped and profitable software business, headquartered in Tallinn, Estonia, and working across Europe with a fully remote 13-person team (team members currently in Sweden, Hungary, Croatia, UK, Austria, Portugal, Latvia, Italy, Montenegro, and Denmark). Therefore, we are looking for somebody who is self-motivated, independent, and comfortable working in a remote-first environment.


What we are looking for

  • You have deep React knowledge and experience.
  • You have extensive experience with Ruby on Rails.
  • You excel at CSS and enjoy developing Design Systems.
  • You are comfortable building full-stack features from scratch.
  • You are comfortable working in a small startup where cross-discipline work is encouraged.
  • You are good at problem-solving critical production issues in a timely manner.
  • You seek to take on responsibilities and take ownership of the work you do.
  • You thrive working independently, but also enjoy collaborating with people from different disciplines and you always try to look at the big picture.
  • Experience working remotely.
  • You are based within UTC-8 and UTC+3 and have a few work hours overlap with 8am to 3pm UTC.

Advantages (not a must, but a big plus)

  • Experience with technologies in our stack (Mobx, TypeScript, Webpack, PostgreSQL, Pusher, OpenAI)
  • Experience with UX/UI design and prototyping
  • Experience in working on real-time sync in collaborative applications 
  • Experience in scaling web applications and optimizing frontend code
  • Experience with workflow tools (Github Actions, Sentry, Mixpanel)
  • Experience with deploying production-grade systems on Amazon Web Services (EC2, CloudFront, S3)
  • Contribution to open-source projects
  • Experience with maintaining WordPress

So, what will I be doing?

To give you perspective of where we are now: we have a stable application and infrastructure with a relatively up-to-date codebase and an extensive customer-driven roadmap of new features and improvements we want to bring to the app.

This is where you come into the picture: we need somebody who can work full-time on bringing new features and improvements to the app


In more practical terms (with examples of a few things we did recently):

  • Building new features that have frontend or full stack requirements (example: adding mentions features, adding AI agenda generation).
  • Work with our designer to define and maintain a consistent Design System.
  • Debugging production-related issues.
  • Improve app performance (example: moving to different JSON rendering library, query optimization, lazy loading components).
  • Working with our designer to provide technical input on new designs.
  • Working with the CTO and the other engineers to improve the developer experience (example: adding more checks to our CI, setting up better staging environments, and improving testing infrastructure).
  • Scaling the infrastructure.

Why is this great for me?

  • Opportunity to work on scaling a product in a fast-growing market
  • Your role and responsibility will grow as our company grows
  • Work remotely and create your own schedule (we believe in trust and autonomy)
  • Stable working environment that values work-life balance
  • Motivated co-workers
  • A chance to travel a couple of times per year to live company meetings. ​
  • Open-minded working culture where we encourage sharing opinions and feedback
  • On average 2 meeting free days per week
  • You are passionate about building stable apps that provide great user experiences 🙂

Compensation 

The compensation range for this role is between €90,000 to €110,000 annually annually on a B2B contract or matching gross salary as an employee (official employment status only available in certain countries). The actual compensation offered to a successful candidate will be based on relative experience and skills.

The compensation includes paid holiday days according to your country of residence (but minimum 20 days) plus your local holidays as paid time off, and additional remote working stipend or home office setup support.
