Would you like to be part of a fast-growing startup where there’s always something new for you to solve, where we will help you grow without limits, and where we all help each other within an ego-free culture?

This opportunity may interest you! 

At Onna, our product helps companies such as Dropbox, Electronic Arts, Lyft, Carvana and others to turn their disparate and disconnected information from workplace applications (Slack, Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, and more) into knowledge that is accessible, useful, and private.

What is it like to work at Onna?

  • Discover your ideal remote work-life balance: As a Digital First company, we empower you to adapt your schedule for what works best for you, so you can collaborate with co-workers in different time zones while also meeting your own personal needs. 

  • Enjoy the freedom to find your own solutions: You will have the freedom to find solutions from scratch, which is both a challenge and a responsibility. There won’t be anybody standing over you telling you what to do. And, all of this in a complex distributed system capable of handling and processing large amounts of data every second: we're currently logging +550 TB of data, indexing +120TB, and have Kafka with +2800 messages/second!

  • Work with the latest technologies: We don’t use technologies just for the sake of it. Instead, we maximize your potential by choosing the right languages and tools. If there’s a technology that solves the problem better, you’ll have the flexibility to propose changes. To learn more about our current tech stack, check out our technologies section below.

  • Ego-free culture of helping each other: At Onna, we work hard, but don’t have the need to show off: our culture is defined by staying humble, helping each other and encouraging growth. Here you’ll find a safe space to express yourself and contribute your point of view. You know how best to do your job, so we won’t constantly look over your shoulder.

  • Evolve with endless growth opportunities: No matter your professional goals, we’ll stand beside you to achieve them. The growth opportunities within Onna are truly endless – whether you want to expand to become a tech lead, pivot into product management or switch to back-end coding.


Company benefits with you in mind

At Onna, we truly care about each other. To nurture your career with us, we create a culture of openness and offer plenty of resources to support your growth, mental health and well-being:

  • Competitive salary package, including an annual bonus and equity.
  • Recharge and disconnect with our flexible paid time off policy.
  • We all take a break with quarterly Onna Wellbeing Days.
  • Home-office setup budget so you can create your ideal remote workspace.
  • Monthly stipend to support working from home
  • Competitive health insurance package, based on your region.
  • 401(k) with matching contribution (US).
  • Yearly learning and development budget.
  • Take your birthday off. Birthday on a weekend? Choose a day and enjoy.
  • Frequent virtual social activities at the team and company level, as well as in-person team gatherings whenever possible. We are Digital First, but we’re definitely not digital only! We value togetherness and we love seeing each other's faces!


What technologies will you work with?

We’re a cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) company that currently uses cutting-edge technologies like Machine Learning, Docker, Kubernetes, Kafka, Elasticsearch, and the latest versions for Python and Angular, to name a few. 

For this reason, you’ll thrive at Onna if you feel comfortable engaging with the cloud ecosystem and distributed event-driven systems.


What will make you succeed in the position?

  • Strong background and experience in designing and delivering complex scalable projects, using Python or other programming languages (if you come from Java, Go, or other languages, that’s completely fine too!)

  • Solid experience with API development, and ideally in building search as a service.

  • Experience with distributed systems, async programming, and event-driven architectures will be highly appreciated.

  • Experience with Google Cloud Platform or other cloud computing platforms.

  • Experience with modern CI/CD workflows and technologies.

  • Strong team spirit to collaborate on cross-functional teams, as we work with Squads (inspired by the Spotify model) as part of our company’s agile best practices.


What will be your mission? 

The Platform Team’s mission is to deliver a secure, robust, performant and scalable architecture that solves problems for both our clients and developer community. We build APIs, solve complex scale challenges, design data storage models, implement event-driven systems, build data pipelines, authentication and authorization systems and much more.


How will you achieve it?

  • By leading the system architecture design, implementation, testing and delivery of Onna’s platform.

  • Being an active individual contributor (hands-on), not a people manager - this will not be the classical “Team Lead” role. However, there will still be plenty of opportunities to mentor & coach fellow engineers.

  • Contributing to the reliability of the system and participating in the creation of observability of different services and components, with the aim of continuing to improve the platform and its reliability.

  • Taking part in product development primarily using Python, but also being able to use the right language for the right job.

  • Overseeing the execution of projects and helping to reduce their complexity, including leading the successful release of products.

  • Promoting the best engineering practices within the organization, since at Onna we prioritize the quality of our platform and it’s a core part of our success.

  • Working with agile teams (squads/tribes/chapters) with a strong focus on testable, scalable, and well-documented code that can be delivered in a continuous integration pipeline, with the goal of growing the platform sustainably and securely.


In short, if you want to join a company where you can continue to grow personally and professionally, where you can achieve real work-life balance, and where you will work on a very collaborative team with authentic people you can rely on…
