We got rid of classical management hierarchies and instead distributed authority among all colleagues. So, we strongly believe in the advantages of self-organization and autonomous working: not only do we want you to grow into the role of our Backend and Data Engineer, but we want this role to grow with you, too. Add a competitive salary, flexible working hours, and a meaningful product on the rise, and you have a first impression of why Blinkist is a great place to work.
