About Rely.io

🚀 Our mission is to empower engineering organizations in fostering a service ownership and engineering excellence culture.

Every year, companies waste more than $1 trillion because developers spend up to 40% of their time working on mundane, non-code-producing work.

🚀 At Rely.io, our goal is to change that. Our mission is to empower engineering organizations in fostering a service ownership and engineering excellence culture.

We’re building the next generation of intelligent tools and automation to supercharge developer productivity and reduce developer toil.

To achieve this goal, Rely.io is starting by building an Internal Developer Portal that empowers engineering organizations to enhance visibility and engineering standards across their software ecosystem.

📍 Location

We’re remote-first and welcome candidates from anywhere in Europe! We have yearly off-sites where we fly the whole team out to a new location so we can meet in person, get to know each other better, kick off important projects, and have fun!

🤝 The team

Our team is a group of world class engineers who share a common goal: to build a product that engineers love. We're committed to creating a workplace culture that's diverse, inclusive, and fosters collaboration and innovation.

We have raised $3.5M+ from top-tier firms like J12 Ventures, Shilling Capital Partners, TechstarsNYC, and TheVentureCity, as well as from notable angels.  We're dedicated to using their support to drive our mission forward and make a meaningful impact in the world of engineering.

We're driven by our vision to lead the industry with platform engineering best practices.

⚙️ About our engineering teams

  • We work with the ShapeUp methodology on a 1-month cycle basis and we give everyone in the team the opportunity to suggest what they want to build, in order to have the biggest impact on our customers. Product engineers are given real ownership of what they want to focus on, and they are responsible for tests, user feedback, and tracking.
  • Every cycle, the product engineers assemble in teams of 2-3 people, where they will be working on 1 or more projects during that cycle, that they will be responsible for overseeing through full completion, from the product design until it’s fully available to our users.
  • You will be working directly with our customers - we have a weekly support here, who is in charge of all customer questions and inquiries that week, and for investigating and resolving issues reported by customers.
  • The technical challenge is designing a highly scalable product capable of receiving and pushing data and requests to external software ecosystems.
