Software Engineer Backend

We at Confrere are making video software that lets professionals (e.g. doctors, psychologists, tutors, bank advisors) have video meetings with their clients right in the browser. This means our backend is highly dependent on scalable realtime messaging, delivered reliably, securely and according to regulations across the world.

Creating the infrastructure for our product is a tough and exciting problem where you will work together with an experienced (and friendly!) team.

Are you interested in joining us? Don’t hesitate to e-mail us at hello@confrere.com, and tell us a bit about why you are interested in joining Confere and your background. We’ll take the rest from there.

  • English language speakers are welcome

  • Remote friendly, with offices in StartupLab in Oslo
  • As our fifth team member and second employee you’ll have a strong impact, and work closely with a friendly team who have solved parts of these problems before

Way more details

Who are we looking for

Your code shows that you put people first, and understand that the code you write will be read hundreds of times more than you write it. You care about uptime, performance, and building human friendly APIs.

You are pragmatic and can find compromises, but you’ll speak up when you feel something is wrong or could be done better.

Why should you join Confrere?

Strong impact and no legacy

You’ll be our fifth team member and our second employee. This means you’ll have a strong impact on the product from day one, how it’s formed, what problem it solves, and how it’s built.

A friendly and experienced team

Everyone says they’re nice, and we think we are too, of course. (We enjoyed home-made cakes to celebrate this job opening). What’s more, this team is highly experienced within video and product development.

You’ll work closely with Dag-Inge Aas (previously tech lead in appear.in) and Ingvild Indrebø (previously front end developer at BEKK). Since we’re a small team you’ll also work with our CEO Svein Willassen (co-founder of appear.in) and Ida Aalen (working with user experience since 2009). Check out the articles at shifter.no and Kampanje to learn more.

We believe you know how you work best

We build our culture around mutual trust and the freedom to work when and where you are happiest. Sometimes that means being in the office or observing users, and sometimes it means you work from Japan, or a café downtown.

An idea with a validated market

Just 3 months after being founded, Confrere received an investment from Founders Fund and Nicolaj Broby Petersen of Megacool. (Read more in Dagens Næringsliv).

We’ve interviewed dozens of doctors, psychologists, tutors, advisors and many others, who believe that video consultation has a role to play for their profession. Several of them has already signed up to be pilot users this fall.

We hope you’ll join us, so that we can make sure they’ll get the experience they deserve.
