Engineering at REKKI

We work in small, focussed teams and take ownership of the things we build, allowing everyone to have impact and influence. Our user-centric approach means we collaborate with people across the business, and we’re always willing to try something new if it’s the best thing for the REKKI community. We’re not scared to take risks that we believe will pay off in the long term, even if that means building our own tools from scratch.

We are hiring for extremely ambitious individuals who want to do things differently. We want your experience with REKKI to be career defining and will settle for nothing less.
