About Subly

We make all content simple, by automatically transcribing, translating and adding subtitles in any language. So creators and businesses can create content with no editing skills, and can focus on what they do best, creating and sharing more content that people love.

Founded in 2019, more than 50,000 creators and 4,000 businesses trust Subly to help content reach further and faster. It’s our mission to empower every creator and organisation to maximise their content, enabling everyone to access subtitled and translated content.


The role

As a Senior Software Engineer you will support Subly’s success by understanding the product requirements and translating these into innovative design. You will be a key member of Subly’s future by supporting our growth. You will plan, design, code, test and release features (Including APIs & SDKs) and fixes across the product range.  We pride ourselves on empowering our whole team to take risks, challenge the norm and think creatively. You will have the freedom to come up with ideas to shape our mission, and create the best in class products. Our tech stack includes Node, Typescript, and Python, AWS, DynamoDb, Postgres, and Docker.


Key responsibilities

  • Plan, design, code, test and release complex features and improvements for Subly’s product.
  • Manage and improve monitoring, security and the CI/CD pipeline
  • Work across functions to ensure goals are met for each fortnightly sprint.
  • Balance quality, and speed to develop solutions that scale.
  • Collaborate with various teams including Product, Marketing, and the wider Engineering team.


About you

To be successful as a senior engineer at Subly you will have a track record of success working independently on the development of large/complex technology products that scale coaching/mentoring team members (direct management isn’t required). We don’t expect you to be an expert across our entire stack, but you should have strong experience in a couple of areas and familiar with the concepts for all of them.


Our team

We are a small, but mighty, globally distributed team. We empower you to work autonomously and take ownership by giving you the flexibility and freedom to integrate your life and work.
