At Strategyzer, our purpose is to unlock millions of people’s potential to create value for themselves, organizations, and society. We succeed when inspired people find the clarity to drive healthy growth and build invincible companies worldwide. To make this happen, we’ve designed the global standard and platform for solving universal business challenges. We believe our success in achieving this purpose, vision, and mission depends on the quality of our people and culture.
From our headquarters in Switzerland, we’ve developed global impact and reach with a fully distributed team that works remotely across 14 countries (with a strong growing presence in Ontario, UK and Ireland). Our team contributes directly to the unique company culture we have today and is committed to transforming traditional management practices to build a truly great place to work.
We’re looking for a Full-stack Product Engineer (React & Rails) to help us build the technology platform to deliver leading tools and services which transform the way global organizations innovate and grow. Real-time collaboration and design, dynamic data management, visualization, and integrated services combine to create a modular operating system that enables scalable, measurable solutions for many of our customers’ greatest business challenges.
You will keep the big picture in-sight whilst digging into the tiny code details to solve problems.
Team members at Strategyzer enjoy:
This role is for a craftsperson who is passionate about building quality software to solve problems that customers care about.
Your mission is to…
The successful candidate will immediately contribute in the following ways:
1. Fall in love with the problem.
The Full-stack Product Engineer needs to first understand and deeply care about the customer’s problems and needs. With this empathy and deeper understanding, the successful candidate will be able to make better decisions as you design & build solutions. This is far more than just coding; you will also get to interview customers and share evidence to influence the product we build.
2. Be a leader.
The successful candidate will be expected to lead. Whether that’s to explore a problem, to deliver a solution, a technical innovation, to change the way we operate, or lead any other initiative that would have a positive impact on the team or product. There are many initiatives we expect a candidate to get excited about, be proactive and take the lead on. In addition, opportunities exist for those who show passion to get involved.
You’ll be accountable for outcomes, with the autonomy to lead and get the job done. You must be transparent in setting out what success looks like while monitoring and reporting on your progress.
3. Product & team impact.
As well as your own work, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the team with code reviews, running retros, facilitating workshops, sharing learnings & ideas. Shape how we make software by bringing new ideas of ways to work and relevant technology while leading by example and constructively challenging the status quo.
You will also be expected to deliver high-quality features, not only external customer-facing quality but also internal design & code quality that is well tested and easy for others to change. Sometimes the situation will be different, and solutions need to be explored and validated. In these situations, the successful candidate needs to be comfortable with changing their approach and trading quality for speed.
While this is a remote role, candidates must [ordinarily] reside between GMT-5 and GMT+3 in order to synchronously work with common collaborators in Europe and Canada.
All potential candidates will be scored on the following competencies.
1. You strive to be a great human being.
We want world-class human beings who:

We pride ourselves on a robust, fair, and diversity-focused recruitment process.
There’s no such thing as a perfect candidate, so don’t let imposter syndrome hold you back. You don’t need 100% of the preferred qualifications to add incredible value to our team. If you’re passionate about what you could accomplish here, and have the experience to match it, we’d love to hear from you. We are in particular looking to encourage women to come and build the next wave of leadership at Strategyzer.
The following steps allow us to find the best fit for this role. Finding the right person is much more important to us than adhering to any deadline, and therefore we will keep this position open until we fill it with the perfect match for us.
