Full Stack Developer – Marketing Tooling

At Jimdo, our mission is to help small businesses start, grow, and ultimately thrive online. Small businesses face new challenges with very little support or recognition. We know how hard this can be, because we have been in their position. That’s where you can help us—by designing intuitive tools to help small businesses solve complex problems.

With a forward-leaning and self-driven attitude, we continue to find new ways to help our customers get their ideas out into the world. As an Engineering team working closely with Marketing, we run at a steady pace to achieve what we aim for. As a young team we learn best by gathering data, trying new things, and sometimes even falling down along the way. It’s the lessons we learn in the process that make us better problem-solvers for our users and for Jimdo itself.

If you’re motivated by our mission and excited to roll up your sleeves, try new things, learn from mistakes, and make a difference to small businesses around the world, we would love to work with you.

***COVID-19:
At Jimdo we are ready to start working with new colleagues as soon as possible. Even though we can not do the onboarding process in the office as we normally would, we will still make sure that you get a thorough online and virtual onboarding, and help you feel like you are part of the team from day one. It is not a limitation if you do not live in Germany right now, we will invite you to start working with us from your current location for the time being. Once the borders are reopened, and the Embassies accept visa applications again, we will initiate the relocation process to Hamburg. Until then, you will be invited to work with us remotely with a temporary contract.

Jens is looking forward to receiving your application.
