Our story so far...
Pigment’s mission is to enable people and businesses to make better decisions.
Founded in 2019 by Romain Niccoli (ex founder and CTO of Criteo) and Eléonore Crespo (Index Ventures and Google), Pigment is a fast-growing international scale-up that raised $240M+ to become the central business planning solution powering Finance, HR, Sales, and Marketing decisions.
We serve fast-growing companies including Gong, Carta, Ledger, Deliveroo, Brex, Melio, and Spendesk to name a few!
We have offices in Paris, London, New York and Toronto.
What we do
Pigment is a SaaS planning platform that enables any business to play with business data in a safe, fun and collaborative environment.
It is an intuitive platform, which anyone can use and understand, that allows leaders and teams to analyze all of their business data better and anticipate the impact of their decisions with unprecedented speed and flexibility.
Join a forward-thinking team (from Meta, Google, Criteo, Datadog and others) that likes to move fast, work smart and solve big challenges as a team on this exciting journey!
We are looking for a backend software engineer to work on the query and formula computation engine that powers our solution, providing an "Excel on Steroids" for our client's financial data.
We provide powerful tools to our clients so they can have a better overview of their business by numbers. Clients model their data in our collaborative solution. The data is processed live through complex calculations and aggregations over millions of records.
That's a lot of performance and scalability challenges that are ahead of us, and that you certainly would enjoy solving with us!
Our Engineering team
Our Engineering team is responsible for developing our SaaS platform and building a comprehensive and user-friendly product.
Pigment engineers participate in the entire application development lifecycle, focusing on design, coding and keeping the production platform up and running. They can be specialized, but there is no strict separation between the backend and the frontend.
We value user-centricity and pragmatism: we choose the most relevant tools for the problem we have to solve, understanding the strengths and constraints of each technology.
Our engineering culture also values curiosity, humility, trust, ownership and team spirit.
Our technical stack is C# on .NET Core Linux, React, TypeScript, PostgreSQL, Google Cloud Platform, Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, RabbitMQ and Circle CI.
Who you are
We are looking for engineers with all levels of seniority: even if you are light on experience, you'll have the opportunity to take ownership of projects quickly, whilst being mentored by talented senior engineers.
More than knowledge of a specific language or framework, we are looking for great software engineering skills: ability to translate functional requirements into an elegant and simple design, and then deliver the code.
We are also looking for engineers who understand the product and the customer's needs in detail and can suggest innovative ideas: in the end, it's all about delivering value to end users.
In any case, you have:
- Experiences as a software engineer working on a product in production.
- Proven experience designing object oriented software with languages such as C#, Java, C++, Golang, Rust, Python or Ruby (this list is not exhaustive).
- Great team spirit with a problem-solving attitude.
- A good dose of humility and the willingness to grow (no matter your seniority!).
- A fluent level in English (French is not a must).
Folks from underrepresented minorities: science shows that you are less likely to apply if you feel that you don’t have all the necessary prerequisites. If this description matches where you are now or what you'd like to grow into in your next position, we encourage you to apply.
What you will get

- The best health insurance with Alan Blue entirely free for you and your family 💙
- Trust and flexible working hours
- Brand new offices in the heart of Paris (Bourse), London and New York
