What is Leapsome?

Leapsome is the all-in-one platform for People Enablement. We combine tools for goals & OKR management, performance reviews and 360s, employee engagement surveys, continuous feedback, team and 1:1 meetings, and fair compensation and promotion management into an easy-to-use, customizable platform.

At Leapsome, we want work to be the best it can be for everyone. That’s why we help companies create environments where people can achieve goals, learn and grow together, and build authentic relationships — our purpose is to make work fulfilling for everyone!

CEOs and HR/People Operations teams in international, forward-thinking companies like Spotify,, Unity, Workato, Bolt, and Northvolt choose Leapsome to drive employee development, productivity, and engagement. Forbes magazine listed Leapsome as one of the 100 most innovative startups in Germany and G2 as the #2 Software Company in Germany.

After successfully bootstrapping to more than 1,500 customers, Leapsome raised US$60 million in Series A Funding led by Insight Partners in March 2022. The funding allows us to further invest in developing our intelligent people enablement platform, create an even stronger employee experience, and expand in the US market - which we did in November 2022. It is a very exciting time to join Leapsome!

Your Opportunity

We’re looking for new team members who are passionate about shaping the future of work and want to expand, scale, and optimize our product offerings as part of a small yet highly effective engineering team. You’ll join a group of experienced software engineers who have worked on several small- and large-scale applications before choosing Leapsome as their favorite next work environment and product. From day one, you’ll have a direct and significant impact on product and architecture decisions to shape and support us in steering our growth.

You will:

  • Build user interfaces using JavaScript, VueJS, and TailwindCSS

  • Design, maintain and implement REST APIs for internal and external requirements

  • Optimize our infrastructure landscape on AWS

  • Collaborate with other senior engineers to refine our long-term technical vision and drive architectural changes as well as infrastructure

  • Review and test the work of your peers throughout all stages of the development cycle

  • Be a sparring partner for product that gets involved and provides feedback and advice very early in the feature evaluation and planning phase

  • Monitor the health of our services and deep dive into topics that appear to negatively impact our user experience

  • Mentor team members to support bringing out their best work

What is the Technology Stack?

  • Node.js for our backend REST APIs

  • MongoDB as NoSQL database

  • AWS for our infrastructure

  • Vue.js & Tailwind for our main single-page applications

  • Cypress, Jest, and Mocha for test automation

  • Travis for CI/CD

  • Git as a version control system with GitHub

You’ll be a good fit if you:

  • Have a strong software engineering background which allows you to write simple and maintainable code while following best practices for software architecture, design and security. Successful applicants usually come with more than 5 years of web development experience. (Full disclosure: This is a rough approximation - we know how hard it is to measure development experience.)

  • Enjoy being part of early feature ideation and taking end-to-end ownership of features from concept to production release instead of implementing pre-defined tasks and designs with little to no room for adjustments.

  • Love working on both the front- and back-end as well as anything else it takes to tackle challenges we might face as a rapidly growing tech company.

  • Like to work with a diverse group of people with different backgrounds and expertise.

  • Are passionate about the future of work and continuous learning at work, and you want to join us in building an exceptional team and company to have a real impact in this space.

Benefits at Leapsome

  • Impact: Become part of a fast-growing scale-up taking over the People Performance & Enablement space by making work fulfilling for more than two million people by 2025

  • Teammates: Join a diverse and international team of talented, smart, and kind people

  • Hybrid model: Enjoy our hybrid model by working from home or in our offices in the heart of Berlin, Germany

  • Flexible work: Experience a work-life balance with flexible hours and the option of working elsewhere for up to 2 months per year

  • Learning and Development: Develop your skills with a yearly development budget of €2,000 and access to Good Habitz platform

  • Vacation: Take 30 vacation days every year plus public holidays (or upgrade to 40 vacation days at adjusted pay) & benefit from a month-long paid sabbatical after 5 years with Leapsome

  • Health & Wellness: Stay active and healthy with a free Urban Sports Club membership and Oliva subscription

  • Mental health: Access to 1:1 therapy sessions via our mental health partner, plus company workshops and learning pathways on topics like mindfulness and digital wellness

  • Corporate Benefits: Get exclusive discounts and deals from our partners.

  • Work-from-home stipend: Receive a one-time work-from-home stipend of €1,000

  • Monthly team activities: Have fun at monthly team activities like kayaking, laser tag, and game nights

  • Competitive pay and pre-IPO equity package
