At Jimdo, our mission is to help small businesses start, grow, and ultimately thrive online. Small businesses face new challenges with very little support or recognition. We know how hard this can be, because we have been in their position. That’s where you can help us—by designing intuitive tools to help small businesses solve complex problems.

With a forward-leaning and self-driven attitude, we continue to find new ways to help our customers get their ideas out into the world. As a team, we run at a steady pace to achieve what we aim for. We learn best by gathering data, trying new things, and sometimes even falling down along the way. It’s the lessons we learn in the process that make us better problem-solvers for small business owners.

If you’re motivated by our mission and excited to roll up your sleeves, try new things, learn from mistakes, and make a difference to small businesses around the world, we would love to work with you.


We are happy to invite you to work with us in our office in Hamburg or permanently remote from your current location. Wherever your working location of choice will be, we will make sure you get proper onboarding (virtual or in person) and that you are fully equipped to become part of the team from day one.

The Role

In order to build a world-class engineering organization, the goal of our Workflows Team is to maximize the impact by increasing the effectiveness of our Jimdo Engineers. We do so by building developer tools to enable a simplified developer experience and enhanced feedback and observability of code quality, maintainability, security, or performance.

As a DevX Engineer in our Workflows Team, you will help define the software development experience for our Jimdo Engineering Teams by building e.g. GitHub Actions, custom workflow supporting services, editor plug-ins, easy to use development tools, or reusable components.

You and the Workflows Team make sure that we optimize the experience of working with the entire tech stack we use. In that regard, you will design, implement, and drive the adoption of abstractions in many layers of our internal stack.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for an Engineer that is excited about developer tools and has a keen eye for software quality/testing practices and methods. Communication is key for this role. You should enjoy sharing your knowledge with fellow developers. In the end, it’s about solving the challenges that every developer like yourself faces.

As a must-have, we consider a strong CI/CD background (Azure DevOps, Jenkins, GitHub Actions, CircleCI, TravisCI, etc.) and very solid experience with NodeJS, TypeScript, Python, Terraform, and Docker. Also, experience with AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud will bring you far for this role.

If you already worked with several CI/CD platforms, performed implementations of more than one CI/CD system together and already wrote your own extensions for Jenkins or other CI-Tools, we’d love to get in touch with you!

Jimdo is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. This means that we don’t discriminate based on race or ethnic origin, color, the language(s) you speak, where you (or your parents) are from, or whether or not you consider yourself to have a disability. Neither will your age, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, beliefs, or political opinions play a part in your application with us. We’re a diverse team in so many ways, and we love it that way.
