Hello! 👋

We're looking for a Senior level Engineer to join in the Operations Domain.

We want someone who will add positively to the team's culture, being fully remote and multi-cultural.

We are looking for profiles that have mastered Ruby on Rails for the backend. For the frontend we are looking for profiles with React, Javascript or Typescript.


Our mission is to build a state-of-the-art platform that centralizes employee data, creating a seamless and efficient payroll experience for our clients and transforming how businesses manage their workforce.

The Engineering team at large

At Factorial, we have a team of +150 very talented fullstack developers. We look for smart people who are curious, proactive and have good soft/communication skills.

We are not looking for a long list of skills and technologies. Our stack is Ruby on Rails for the backend and React/React-native for the clients.

  9. You are comfortable communicating in English.

At Factorial we don't evaluate you by the years of experience you have, we evaluate your knowledge and skills. How? We have a Career Path with a rubric framework where we define what is expected for each experience level and skill. This framework allows you to know at which level you're right now and what you need to keep growing. As we love transparency, our Career Path includes the salaries for each level and we share it during the first interview to make sure we're aligned.

For this senior-level position, the annual gross salary is 60,000€ regardless of your location. This includes a base salary of 51,000€ and a variable pay of up to 9,000€ annually (paid quarterly), depending on the company's goals.

  3. Solve low-stake bug tickets or quick wins

  5. Be fully integrated in the team’s rituals from day 1

A Senior engineer at Factorial influences requirements definition with the PM, and is autonomous to deliver a polished solution that matches those. You participate in the team’s decision through Requests For Comments that you write yourself or reading others’.

You will be a product engineer, taking ownership of big initiatives, and being interested in the outcome, not just the output. About the outcome, you’ll also work with your team members to establish goals and plan a quarterly roadmap, putting special attention to the technical needs of our domain.

You will be involved in customer calls to learn about their pains & needs.

You will review code daily and get feedback on your own code at every pull request, from all team members, including juniors.

The hiring process

If you apply, here’s what to expect:

  1. A first conversation with Raquel, our People Business Partner. It will be about comparing our expectations and making sure we match on a human level.
  2. A second conversation with the team’s engineering director. Similarly to the first one, this is about making sure you are a fit and can work together.
  3. A tech interview with three Factorial engineers: This will be a conversation about technology, not an exam or code review. We’ll ask you to send us a piece of code you’ve written recently and are happy with, to use as a basis for the conversation. If you don’t have anything, we’ll share some specifications for you to build, but the focus will be on how you think, not the exact code.
  4. And that’s it! Feel free to request any other conversations you want, with team members or to address specific concerns at any time in the process.

The whole process is remote, using videoconferencing tools!
