Software Architect

Paris, Remote /
R&D – Engineering /
Permanent Contract
/ Hybrid
The story begins with only 10 developers in the R&D department, working on a single codebase. Today, we are a team of more than 90 engineers divided into 16 product squads. Each squad includes developers, product managers and designers.
Our technical teams are paramount to 360learning’s response to our increasingly demanding customers and are strategic contributors to the growth of the company. 

Our Software Architects are “hands-on” problem solvers who coach our engineers on code organization, technical debt solving and big features implementation. They are accountable for leading tech roadmaps (performance, scalability, security…), experimenting with new technologies, making PoCs and making sure our architecture remains a reference in the SaaS industry. This is a unique opportunity to:

Work with complex and cross-cutting challenges: Building expertise around a complex codebase on which analysis and modeling capabilities are key. Significant traffic (2.5M registered users, 200K unique monthly visitors) with a considerable volume of data to manage. A strong focus on “clean architecture” for long-term growth. The opportunity to stay "hands-on" by regularly refactoring our code, helping squads with their complex projects...

Work in a scale-up that's always looking to improve: Align R&D on strategic subjects: architecture, stack, organization, roadmap, objectives. Help level up the teams by sharing best practices, organizing workshops and writing documentation. All in a context of strong international expansion of the product.

Work within a highly-skilled team: Our R&D brings together some 60 engineers recognized for their ability to analyze and model complex codebases. Our decentralized peer-review process allows everyone to benefit from the expertise of others and to grow.
