Reaktorians are known for working together, having a thirst for new adventures, and taking the quality of our craft (but not ourselves) very seriously. We’re in the business of making our clients succeed in technology, be it about automating beer brewing processes, scaling the streaming of popular TV shows to millions of concurrent users, refining global scale e-commerce services, or building 100kLOC JS codebases from scratch… We are industry-agnostic, looking for complex problems to solve. If it runs code, our international teams of propeller-heads are on it!


Our Story

Reaktor was started when 5 developers joined their forces to create a great workplace for themselves. 20 years later those developers are still working at Reaktor, surrounded by 550 colleagues in Helsinki, Amsterdam, NYC, Stockholm, Tokyo, and Dubai… and soon Lisbon.

We are owned by our employees and known for winning Best Place to Work competitions, shooting satellites into space, and having a common-sense approach to not so common problems.


Reaktor in Lisbon

We are looking to hire the best talent in the city to be the seed of our Lisbon operation. Are you a developer with team-building skills and the desire to be a founding member of something new? Do you share our ideology, want to find new challenges, and work in an international environment while being based in Lisbon?

Naturally, necessities like compensation and equipment will be taken care of in a manner that satisfies all parties.


Want to apply? Here’s what the process might look like:

  • Discover Reaktor & hit apply (you are here)
  • Brief chat over Skype – let’s get to know each other
  • Introduction to Reaktor, Culture & Attitude interview – you get to know Reaktor and we get to know you
  • Technical interview – no brain teasers, or sorting algos. You choose a couple of topics and we choose a couple of topics to discuss
  • Closing interview – let’s talk mutual expectations for our common future
  • Saying hello for your new 500 best colleagues

Main requirements

Technically speaking

  • We use the best tools for the job at hand. Sometimes it’s Clojure running in the Kubernetes cluster, and sometimes it’s a small piece of JS running on AWS Lambda. Sometimes tech is best solved with no code at all, but with talking to the right people.
  • Our juniors and seniors alike work on both the shiny and dirty bits of the codebase. No ivory tower architects here.
  • Some things we work with: Functional programming, state management, Node.js, Clojure, React, Swift, Kotlin SQL, NoSQL.
  • We have no hard language or tech requirements, as we know that good developers can create great things in any language.


Nice to have

We’ll expect our Lisbon pioneers to:

  • Write beautiful code. Every day, if that’s your thing.
  • Join us in Helsinki and Amsterdam for onboarding, planning, project work, and client meetings, according to your availability and desire to travel
  • Choose your colleagues: Use your network to find, hire, and mentor the best talent in the city
  • Be a team player, through and through, and shape the team through leading by example. Be it code conventions or ways of working.


As an employer, Reaktor is:

  • A high-trust and low-control environment, all about setting you up to succeed.
  • Open, respectful, and human.
  • Hybrid. Our people have specialist skills ranging from engineering to AI, business consulting to design, content and brand to and data and research. It’s a great group to grow in.
  • Purpose-driven: We are changing how the world works.
  • Passionate: In addition to client work, we do things purely because we want to.
  • Recognized: In addition to the usual Red Dots and Webbies, we’ve been awarded an Emmy (twice) and were included in Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies 2019 listing.
