We’re looking for smart, friendly, and collaborative technologists to help us reach our technology goals. These include decomposing our existing platform into micro-services and building new products, from the ground up.

Oh, and here’s what else you’ll get: Market salary, stock options you’ll help make worth a lot, the usual holidays, medical insurance, contribution for public transports, a brand new office with a panoramic view of the canal and the Eiffel Tower, a tremendous amount of responsibility and autonomy, awesome and international co-workers (in Paris, Boston and Denver!), trips to Boston (team meetings, hackathons), weekly breakfast, and knowing that you helped get this rocket ship to the moon!
