🧑‍💻 What is this role?

Bounce is seeking a Software Engineer, Product to join our Lisbon office. This role will play a pivotal part in crafting new products atop our platform and expanding the efficacy of the Bounce marketplace.

As a Software Engineer, you will take ownership of real-world customer problems, crafting intelligent and efficient solutions across both backend and frontend. You will have the opportunity to own projects in various areas, such as our consumer apps, growth engines, and partner tools.

We are looking for a generalist who thrives in a fast-paced environment and enjoys owning a feature from concept to completion, contributing across the entire technology stack.

Our ultimate goal is to build a large-scale, shared technology platform that supports various products capable of rapid iteration and exploration.

🛠️ How Product Gets Built At Bounce

At Bounce, we focus on serving our customers and partners rather than solely on technological innovation.

We work in fast-paced 1-week cycles. Projects are usually scoped down to fit into one or two cycles. Projects are led by individuals, but are a shared effort across the entire team. There will always be aspects of any project that will require collaboration, feedback, and guidance—we expect you to ask for help.

An ideal candidate is excited by all aspects of this software-building process, not just writing code. We’re a small team that thrives off of individuals who can take features from an idea to live on production. This is not a role where issues will be assigned to you and you churn through them.
