How we work

This is a fully-remote full-time position - with the option to work from our main office in Paris, France, or in a co-working space near you.

We hire everywhere in Europe for this position and you should be less than 3000 kms/5 hours away from Paris, France as we meet once every 6 weeks there for an event we - super originally - call “Everyone in Paris”.

We believe being able to meet once every 6 weeks is a strong advantage to improve communication and brainstorming.


  • If you’re located in France, we provide standard full-time contracts with full-health coverage and standard benefits.
  • If you’re located in another country, we will start with a 4 months contract and onboard you after that as a full-time employee with - we just need some time to understand your local regulation.

Some context about Koyeb:

  • We’re a really small team, currently 9 and probably less than 16 (in the whole company) when you will be joining. We’re composed of 90% of technical people and the resulting 10% catch the technical side.
  • We’re building a product used by developers and are interacting daily with our developers’ community - which are our users.
  • All our communications, internal and public, are in English. We are a global company, currently headquartered in France, Europe.
  • We’re prioritizing work that has a direct impact on user experience and expect you to think first about impact. Our long-term mission doesn’t change, but you need to be willing to work on a short-term roadmap evolving quickly depending on user feedback.
  • We’re an early-stage and full remote company. This is a demanding job that requires a high degree of autonomy and the ability to work asynchronously.

How we hire

We ask you to send us “something interesting” via the standard application form. Here are some guidelines on what we think is interesting:

  • Please explain why you would like to join us, a resume without any explanation is rarely interesting. This is sometimes called a cover letter but just think about it as if you would send an e-mail and explain why you think we should talk. A dozen of lines are sufficient.
  • An up-to-date LinkedIn/equivalent profile or resume is needed. We need it to have a quick overview of what you’ve done.
  • Open source projects you’ve worked on.

What we need to understand is how what you've worked on is relevant to what we’re building here at Koyeb. We don’t pay extensive attention to a standardized format and what the theory says but keep in mind that good written communication skills are crucial to working at Koyeb.

If we believe we could work together, Julia, our talent partner, will reach out to schedule a first 30 minutes call to make sure this could be a match.
