About Newcycle

At Newcycle you will be welcomed by an experienced and passionate team of entrepreneurs, designers and engineers. We are still in the early stages, so your contributions will heavily affect our direction. This responsibility will of course be compensated through a fair salary and a generous stock options programme.

However, the one thing, above all others, that will make you love working at Newcycle, is that you will make a real difference. You will be able to focus your passion, skill and imagination where it matters. We are building transformative tech that will not only prolong the life of things, but of our planet as well.

Where are we on our journey?

We have built a proof of concept that is wow-ing retailers and investors. Currently we are working on integrations with retailers, and we're soon ready to release a beta app to our community of testers.

The first round of funding is secured, and we have put together an experienced board from different industries, including a former CEO for one of Norways largest retailers 🚀

About the job

In the everyday, you will work closely with a team that consist of the CEO/CPO, the CTO, a designer, a frontend engineer and a backend engineer. We are currently building the foundation upon which everything we do going forward will be built, and we need you to make it great. No pressure 😁

As you grow confident in the team and the company, you will claim ownership of everything backend related and ensure it meets your standards of quality. In your wake, you will leave a coding environment that new engineers are easily onboarded to, and loves working in, as you move on to solve our next challenges.

What we expect from you is creativity, the willingness to take ownership and work hard to get where we need to go. In return we’ll give you a welcoming atmosphere where you will be given the freedom to shape the product and our culture, and to grow both as a person and an engineer.

Our startup family

When in a startup, the team is small by design. But there are benefits to being a larger group as well. A wider range of experiences and expertise, for instance. Or just more people to plan after work activities with 🏓🍻🚴♀️.

This is where the power of our extended family comes in. We’re all on Slack together, so if you need insight or knowledge from outside your team, you are welcome to ask anyone for input, or start a debate in an open channel whenever you feel like it.
