Hi there,

we at n8n ( are building a powerful, scalable, and source code available workflow automation platform.

this is our GitHub repository:

Is this a codebase that you would like to improve?

Is this a project you would like to be part of?

Your Role

We want someone who gets excited by:

You will not like this role if you:

  • Like to have a PM that gives guidance on what to work on (no PM, no scrum meetings, no user stories)

  • Typescript and Node.js expert
  • Biased for action and a self-started
  • Ultimate autonomy and freedom to do deep work
  • Spending your time on technically challenging tasks
  • Transparency. We all know what everyone’s working on, how’s the company doing
  • A passionate team who loves the product we are building
  • We're big fans of open source, and you'll get $100 per month to give to projects you care about
  • Being fair is really important to us. Equity? Of course we give you equity

This role can be done from anywhere within Europe. We can sponsor visas to Germany; for any other country, you need to have existing right to work. Our company language is English.
