Back-end engineer - freelance (m/f/d)

Back-end engineer – freelance (m/f/d)


Hello developer! Would you like to build our startup with us from the ground up?

We are the tiny team behind Crrowd, a new app where users can find and post product reviews almost instantly. Kind of like Yelp or TripAdvisor, but for physical products, and, according to our own humble assessment, way better.

Our team consists of 2 founders plus a freelancer and we've so far been fully bootstrapped (i.e. self-funded). We have a functional app that we are testing with an active closed beta community of 1000+ users, and seeing the positive response, we thought it's time to scale things up a little. This is where you come into the picture!

About the role

We are looking for someone to lead the backend at Crrowd.

Our back-end is based on Node, while our front-end is built with React Native. Our app is Android-only for now, but will be coming to iOS and the web soon, too. We are looking for someone to become our back-end engineer who enjoys building and architecting digital products.

Whoever fills this role should feel excited about building something from the (almost) ground up, should take responsibility and should enjoy working both independently and in a team.

Our wishlist

Note: if you don't fit all of them exactly but you're awesome anyway, we would still like to hear from you!

  • 2+ years of back-end experience building digital products, preferably user-facing apps

  • Experience with Node and AWS

  • Good communicator

  • Patient & considerate

  • Bonus: passionate about online communities

What we offer

  • The chance to get in early and build something big

  • A competitive early employee package with equity compensation

  • A flexible schedule


We're based in Berlin. Since you'd be a core part of our team, we would love to be able to meet face-to-face, at least every now and then. That said, we understand that talented people live all over the world, so remote work is possible.

A note on diversity

We believe that diversity brings creativity, empathy and perspective to our team. We therefore welcome candidates of all backgrounds, religions and genders.

Get in touch

We have huge ambitions for Crrowd and we can't wait to tell you all about them. Even more than that, we can't wait to hear all of the crazy ideas you will cook up with us! If you'd like to apply, please send us a CV, as well as a brief text telling us how you heard about this position, as well as why you think you'd be the right pick for it. A portfolio would be a plus too.
