With users as far East as the US and as far West as Australia - we help businesses across the world meet all their CRM & Communication needs.

QContact has always been a remote-first company, and our development team is spread across Europe. We are now looking for another back end engineer to join the team. If you want to big a tiny cog in a big machine, we're not the right business for you. If you want a very high level of autonomy, with the ability to make your own decisions - this is the role for you.

As a European business we also understand work / life balance. We are not expecting employees to work 12 hour days or 7 day weeks! Your contracted hours are 40 hours per week, and you shouldn't be required to work outside of these except in exceptional circumstances. You won't need to work weekends or Friday afternoons either. You will get all public holidays in your home country, as well as an additional 20 days paid annual leave.

  • You must be fluent in English
  • You must reside within in the European Union, United Kingdom or South Africa
