We’re looking for great engineers with diverse backgrounds. We need people that can fill hybrid roles with different emphases on the wide context of product development. We don’t have predefined positions: instead, we invite you to come talk to us about your skills, experience, ambitions, and dream role. We hope to find exceptional people to do exceptional work with us, and we believe it’s important that we define your role and path to our mutual growth together.

We believe in technology-agnostic product thinking, defined only by finding meaningful solutions to challenging problems. Your passion should be the same as ours: unmatched execution of those solutions. We structure, create, iterate, and reinvent, delivering tangible value faster than anyone in the world.

What we can offer you:

  • Hybrid, completely autonomous teams, filled with experts in everything from design, to data science, to business consulting, to content.

  • A community of amazing people who you will learn from and will learn from you.

  • Experimentation and continuous improvement of our skills and ways of working.

  • A dedication to constant evolution (and the occasional revolution).

  • A world without rigid hierarchy—big ideas can come from anyone and anywhere.

What you can hopefully bring:

  • Exceptional technological competence.

  • Ability to make things, and to make things happen.

  • Compassion for people—both those around you, and those who will use what we build.

  • Drive to work on complex problems at any part of the project, from type system nuances to organizational dynamics.

  • A vision and commitment to the future of work: being truly lean and agile and human-centered, and leaving yesterday’s pointless rituals behind.

  • Readiness to be responsible for your work, development, and career path. Don’t worry: we’ll have your back in whatever you want to achieve, but the end goal is yours to define.

  • 5+ years of real-world experience in building digital products and services.

  • Authorization to work in the United States.

Think Reaktor sounds like home? Great. Introduce yourself via our careers page.

We invite you to share details of any open source projects, your GitHub profile, and most importantly, your personality. Be original, not official.

We are an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, veteran status, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status or disability.

What is your Interview process like?

Our interview process usually consists of a few different phases. First, we'll have a casual chat about your experience, ambitions, and hopes for the future, and we can tell you a bit more about Reaktor and our work. Next, you’ll sit down with two of our software engineers or designers - people you’d likely work with on a project. Here you can show some code of your choice and we can get an idea of how you think and work by showing you some code and asking for your feedback on it. The last phase is usually more about practicalities and making sure we feel that our company vision and your career ambitions match and we can help each other flourish.

What efforts are you making in terms of increasing diversity & inclusion within your company?

Our New York team was founded in 2014 by a group of Finnish expats - and we're working hard towards building a more inclusive and diverse team that better represents the city we're in. Our full recruitment budget is geared towards these efforts, and we often partner with groups and organizations such as Black Girls Code, Techqueria, Women Who Code, Grace Hopper Program, and Hexagon to make the industry more inclusive.

We're structured in a self-organized way, which we believe enables a fair and inclusive environment - we're not here to compete with each other but to support each other to do our best work to help our clients.

Our Nordic heritage translates to an approach of people first, people second, people third – that means reasonable hours, holidays, parental leave, pay, and all the support you need.

Internally, we're all about building an inclusive community but we also realize that we have plenty to improve on. This is why we believe everyone's responsible for bringing ideas on the table of how we can become more inclusive every day. This can manifest in our people and teams organizing company-wide workshops about diversity, our ladies' sauna gatherings, or us throwing a design day with Black Girls Code.
