About Shepherd

 

Shepherd is a VC-backed B2B SaaS startup transforming the future of meetings. Our vision is to change the way meetings are set and run by boosting efficiency. We are developing a user-focused meetings dashboard that can be accessed via the web app or directly from your calendar with a Chrome Extension. 67% of meetings are considered failures, costing companies over $400 billion every year, in the US and UK alone!

 

We aim to reduce time wastage associated with meetings and provide an easy and seamless way to enhance productivity during meetings. The global pandemic has forced us to reimagine the future of work. We’re here to ensure team dynamics work well whether you´re meeting online, or offline.

 

We are backed by the world’s largest venture capital firm, as well as the Norwegian government and a handful of serial angel investors in Europe. We have commitments from several pilot customers which we will kick-off in Q3 2021.

 

The Software Developer will have the autonomy to own certain elements of the project and work alongside the Co-founders to shape and build a product that has a real purpose. In return, we will make sure the right candidate has room to learn and develop as a rockstar developer going forward. Ideally, this role would evolve into a longer-term role and join the team full-time.

 

Life At Shepherd

 

We’re a tight-knit team, which means there’s significant potential to join us early on as we design the playbooks and scale from here on. We also have notable Strategic Advisors, one of which is the Co-founder of a unicorn grocery delivery company and another who has been part of Google's leadership team. We’re a light-hearted, yet hardworking bunch and have huge ambitions for Shepherd.

 

We move quickly, take pride & ownership in our work, and aim to revolutionise a pressing problem that every company faces. Our culture is one of innovation, collaboration & where we put people first. We are energised when we work with ambitious, passionate, and personable individuals who want to join us on this exciting journey. 

 

As an early-stage VC-backed company, we have ambitious goals to grow and scale globally. If you’re resourceful by nature, a great team player, and willing to get your hands dirty from the get-go, you’ll fit in just fine.

 

What you'll be doing

 

We are in search of a passionate Software Developer to join us as an intern and who is able to build quickly. You will work very closely with our CTO (Norwegian) and be part of spearheading the build of our SaaS product and the iterations during the beta testing phase. You will participate in brainstorming product ideas, new technologies, and software solutions that can be incorporated. You will then be in charge of shaping the product that we then launch to the public as we look to scale internationally.

 

You will also be working closely with our UX Designer to ensure we’re building the right product that users find valuable. You will need to be comfortable working quickly and efficiently and have excellent communication skills in order to accurately share ideas with our CTO, CEO, and UX Designer.

 

Over time, we’d love to explore the intern joining the team full-time as we grow and scale.

  • A team-player with a humble, empathetic, can-do attitude

  • A continuous drive to learn with a growth mindset

Bonus Points

  • Familiar with Backend programming languages

  • A chilled person that works well with others
