at Tape

Munich, Germany · Remote · Full-time


We’re on a mission to give everyone the tools to customize their own software to solve any problem and take on any challenge in their daily work.

We’ve been working on our SaaS platform, Tape, since 2019 and have a vibrant global community with great customers and a motivated ecosystem of partners. We move fast, challenge the status quo, and are passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as our customers. 

Tape was created to achieve great results with minimal staff. At the beginning, we focused on building an optimal infrastructure, an exceptional coding environment, and preparing for smooth day-to-day SaaS operations. These efficient processes now benefit our partners and their customers, enabling us to offer competitive pricing, introduce new features fast, and maintain top quality. Today, we’re growing and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do.  



At Tape, your work transforms the way people experience work every day. Join us as a Engineer, where you will drive our customers’ outcomes by designing, developing, and delivering innovative, high-quality features. This role has a direct impact on how users interact with and perceive our product.

There are different areas and features where you can make an impact, either accelerating our established features or developing new ones. At this stage of development, we are focusing on a new innovative technology for Tape: a block-based, customizable canvas. We have some pretty big ideas for the future shown on our public roadmap and we can’t wait to share more details with you. In your first interview, we can dive deeper into the various challenges to find the most exciting one for you.

Aside from our people, culture, and mission, Tape is committed to providing great benefits with the unique opportunity for one engineer to achieve founder status, including: 

  • Founder-level compensation: we offer a top-tier package that includes cash compensation, benefits, and equity options. This role can be aligned with that of a Co-Founder and may also include company shares. The final compensation will be based on several factors, including location, the scope and complexity of the tasks performed, and the candidate’s experience and expertise.
  • Flexible working arrangements: flexible working hours. Options for office, hybrid, or up to 100% remote work.
  • Cutting-edge technology stack: modern best-practice TypeScript stack.

  • Live for customer value: the code you write and the designs you implement directly affect the product and, by extension, the company’s success. This is highly rewarding and motivating, especially we use our own product as our only digital workspace every day.
  • Contribute to open source: get the chance to work on open source projects, building a public portfolio that showcases your skills and contributions.
  • Milestone events: every major feature release brings our team together to celebrate this success.
  • Efficient work environment: enjoy a minimum of 6 hours of focused coding time per day, made possible by fewer meetings, no JIRA, no confluence and no back-office tasks.
