Senior Software Engineer (Team Lead)

Join Hoxhunt and build a purposeful product that defends companies from cybercrime, help support the cyber skills training for 1m+ users to make the world more cyber secure - in a human centric way.

We are looking for an experienced technical leader to spearhead the team in the launch of our latest product. In this greenfield initiative, you will play a key role in setting the architectural direction and implementing scalable engineering practices. You will work closely with product management and other engineering teams, make key technical decisions to support our strategy, and guarantee the effective rollout of our new product. Your contribution will be instrumental in defining the trajectory of our product portfolio.

What you'll do:

  • Set architectural direction and engineering practices with the team
  • Lead the team in delivering high-quality, scalable software
  • Design, build, and maintain APIs, services, and systems
  • Collaborate with cross-functional partners to align technical decisions with the company's strategic direction
  • Mentor and engage in the development of team members

    At Hoxhunt, we’ve created a unique twist to standard security training and compliance technologies. Our platform is part game and part education. We’ve found the two are necessary to create a security product that end-users truly want to engage with.

    Our daily work is guided by 3 core principles:
    1. Hungry for feedback
    2. Courage to take initiative
    3. We succeed together

    We hope that you share these values with us and are willing to contribute accordingly.


    Required skills:

    • Degree in Computer Science or equivalent practical experience.
    • Several years of software engineering experience with a proven track record of working with several large-scale software products
    • Experience leading technical teams and setting architectural direction
    • Proficiency in coding with languages such as TypeScript, Go and Python
    • Strong ability to balance execution and velocity with security, reliability and maintainability
    • Comfortable with managing technical uncertainty

    Preferred Skills:

    Hoxhunt values people from different backgrounds. We don’t expect everyone to meet all the below qualifications, and believe that there is always room to grow.

    • You’re confident about representing your ideas and opinions as well as open to receive and look for more data and feedback
    • Experience in streaming data systems
    • Experience in recruiting and managing technical teams, including performance management

    Hoxhunt is a great place to work:

    • The salary range is €6,500 - €7,500/month depending on your experience
    • All employees have extensive health insurance under OP Extra Terveysturva
    • Our office has a swimming pool, gym, and spa, available to all Hoxhunters
    • Cybersecurity is a growing industry that evolves constantly
    • Since 2016, our team has grown from 4 founders to 140+ people
    • We value and support learning and work-life balance
    • We have a strong camaraderie in the company and care for our people
    • We promise you a fun but ambitious environment with a lot of laughter

    Our recruitment process:

    1. Screening interview (30min remote)
    2. Second interview (45min, at our office or remote)
    3. Homework related to your role followed by a panel interview (max 90min independent work plus 60min interview at our office or remote)
    4. Reference checks

    If you are interested, please send us your application. We will proceed with potential candidates right away and hire the right match when we found them. During July, slight delays in our responses will occur due to the main holiday period. We hope you can bear with us.
