Heaps Digital Ventures is building digital consumer products for the new generation. We’re a team of engineers, designers, marketeers and strategists with 3 successful projects so far. Now, we are working on our most ambitious project ever. We are digitalizing the going-out experience in partnership with Scandinavia’s biggest nightlife company launching the first product in 2018.

Heaps’ projects have received investments from Gary Vaynerchuk, Ron Burkle, Logan Paul and Steve Aoki - whom, individually also backed Snapchat, Spotify, Airbnb and Uber. We’ve worked with Universal Music, Roskilde Festival, Uber and Warner. So far, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people have a great time out - now we want to make that into millions of people.

About Heaps Digital Ventures

We are looking for a senior technical lead for the development on our existing PHP/Symfony backend and AWS infrastructure. Ideally you are self driven, structured, motivated by big challenges and good at both coordinating with a team, delegating responsibility and executing on a plan yourself. Your focus will be on architecture, designing and reviewing features, new development as well as generally leading development on our backend.

Our office is located at lovely Frederiksberg in Copenhagen. Most of us are in the office every day, however some team-members work remote, which is no problem for us. A few of the team members spent a lot of time in Los Angeles with partners and investors. Our office includes all the facilities we think is crucial for doing great work - free food, free drinks, ergonomical working stations and a good vibe with social activities. 

To put it short - we are a 8-person team (and growing) now building a digital framework to be used by the retail industry, with a special focus on nightlife. Among other things, that involves building a mobile frontend for consumers and a cloud analytics setup encompassing all systems, platforms and customers across multi-brand leading companies. We need you to help us lead and build the backend using the following stack and technologies:

  • PHP 7/Symfony with PostgreSQL

  • Infrastructure on AWS 

  • Golang services, including web sockets

  • If you have experience with React.js with Redux and Typescript including testing in Karma, Chai, Enzyme or similar it would be a plus but not necessary.

  • We’ll be happy to discuss and share our current setup and system with you.

As part of our team, we'll offer you:

  • Tremendous opportunity to digitalize real-life experiences

  • Working with a team of smart, creative, fun and highly motivated people

  • Competitive salary and employer benefits (we'll match your existing salary +10%)

  • Flexible working hours with very high level of autonomy

  • Spacious Headquarter in the heart of Copenhagen office (icludes free food, free drinks, ergonomic working place)

  • Great working environment with social activities (Eg. Yearly company trip with global team including freelancers + remote and Quarterly Heaps Family events)

  • Continous learning (dedicated time for exploring new technologies and education)

  • Be part of a team that is constantly seeking to challenge the industry
