Senior Product Developer


GitBook is a modern documentation platform sustained by some of the best SaaS europeans VCs (Point 9 Capital, Notion Capital, Fly VC), used by over 500,000 users and thousands of teams such as Adobe, Netflix, Decathlon, or Google.

Our ambition is to empower team's intelligence. We want to help teams work more efficiently by creating a single place to leverage their knowledge.

We are evolving in a fast paced environment with a strong will to scale. As you may imagine reaching this level of ambition requires a lot of efforts on product development, that is why we are looking for a Senior Product Developer to scale our product and our team in order for us to go "one step beyond".

On a daily basis, you will be working on:

  • Development: You will be taking ownership on features development, working on the whole stack (even though each members of the Product Team has his/her own specialities), imagining new features to solve our customers problems, working on refactoring, bug fixes and flows that impact users.

  • Design: You will be able to imagine new features and share your ideas, usually by sketching things up and discussing about it with our designer.

  • Support: Every team member should be informed of the state of the product, and there is nothing better than having everybody on support. At GitBook, each Product Developer takes responsibility toward the end user to solve its problems on the application (in a reasonable way). Tools: ZenDesk, Sentry, Amplitude and Firebase logs.
