To strengthen our team in Europe, we are looking for a Ukrainian-speaking Lead Software Engineer with experience in Golang or any server-side programming language and eager to switch to Golang. You will have time to adapt and fully immerse yourself in the role. 

About the project

Giggster, our in-house product, is an online platform for people to list, discover, and book locations for creative projects and events. 

Chances are you’ve seen Giggster locations in the shows you watch, brands you buy, and influencers you follow. Some of the biggest content producers in the world use us for their locations, such as Netflix, HBO, and Disney – as well as top brands like Apple and Louis Vuitton. And the next generation of creators on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok is also finding perfect spots on Giggster for their content.

Giggster’s goal is to be the technology disruptor that modernizes Hollywood, empowering millions of creators – no matter where they are – to focus on content rather than the logistics of finding a location and the additional services that go with it, like permitting, etc.

Founded in 2017, Giggster is a team of 70+ distributed across the US, Europe, and Asia.
