Driven and Product-focused Backend Engineer

By Dietdoctor @DietDoctor1

Are you someone who likes to help make the world a better place, and not just content going to work designing yet another service that people don't need? We are looking for experienced and driven engineers to join us and help deliver on our vision - being the most trustworthy online health company in the world.

Our journey

Diet Doctor was founded in 2007 by Andreas Eenfeldt, MD, who was inspired to help people eat better and live a healthier life. Beginning as a simple blog, we are now in 2019 the global leader in our niche, with more than 30 full-time co-workers around the world. Most of us work from our central Stockholm office.

What you may be surprised to know is that Diet Doctor is fully self-funded, and we have never taken VC money - pretty unique for a fast-growing startup that is more than doubling in size every year. This makes us fully in control of our own destiny, and not beholden to outside influence. Apart from competitive salaries and benefits, this allows us to offer all employees to buy a stake in the company regularly.

The Engineering team that you will join is small but growing steadily. We are taking our time to find the right people, and as we're still less than 10 people it also implies that you will be given a lot of responsibility - and have an equally strong voice in both what we do and how we do it.
