We think it should be easy to shop online and offer our customers a fast and hassle-free shipping service – all in order to make everyday life easier. We allow our customers to shop from any of our e-commerce partners and pick up their products in one of our conveniently located Instaboxes. We’re fast, both in terms of parcel delivery and when it comes to growing our business. 

As we expand our business we find ourselves in need of a Principal Engineer who wants to take on the responsibility for the future direction of the Instabox tech platform.

What you will be doing

As a Principal Engineer you manage a few domains, supported by corresponding development teams, future-proofing the tech platform in close collaboration with the teams. Reporting to our Vice President of Engineering you will work alongside peers who will have the same goal as you, which is the continued improvement and efficiency of the tech platform. You will facilitate growth and learning, this may require you to adopt a very hands-on approach but equally important; to get out of the way when needed. 

Your tasks will include, but not be limited to:

  • Establish and implement the long-term tech strategy for your domains in collaboration with tech leads, peers, and CTO.
  • Support and guide our engineering teams
  • Facilitating smooth onboarding and training for the members of the teams you work with.
  • Supporting the teams in cross-team collaboration and communication.
  • Act as an interface between product (and other departments) and tech
  • Proactively identifying problems and working to resolve them in the fast-paced environment Instabox provides.
  • Continue to build on the great culture of dedication, collaboration, and caring for each other, while having fun!

Who you are

In order to be successful in this role, we believe that you will have several years of experience working as a developer, architect, tech-lead or similar, with a hands-on approach. You are seasoned from many years of building and maintaining applications over their lifecycle. You have achieved results by improving solutions and possess the ability to make strategy come alive by engaging and inspiring others. That you are well versed in lean and agile thinking is a given and you have previous experience in leading people.

  • What motivates you is solving complex problems and really deliver business value efficiently.
  • You will have started your career as a developer yourself, before moving into architectural leadership, and you still love developing.
  • Worked in a fast-growing company organisation with high levels of ambiguity and flat hierarchy structures. 
  • The ability to provide constructive feedback, problem-solving and analytical skills, not to mention collaboration. 
  • You’re great at making others shine.

When we call your references they will tell us about your ability to motivate those around you intrinsically, communicate effectively and always keep the end goal in sight. They will highlight your capability to look at the big picture while being able to zoom in on the details that will allow you to reach your goals.

We offer you

The chance to be part of something truly amazing and fun. In this role, you will have a tangible impact on the way that our products develop and the freedom to try new things and ways of working with your teams. You will work closely with our CTO, the other Principal Engineers, and with Tech Leads who are all passionate about building and improving our products. We can promise you that you will be challenged, pushed to develop your skillset, and have the opportunity to work with dedicated, smart, and humble people. 

The journey ahead is what excites every Instaboxer working here today and we are just getting started. Then there is the compensation package, benefits, centrally located office, etc. but we’ll get to that in due time.
