Who we are

Our team is based in Vienna, Graz, and - as a remote work company - around the globe. Founded in 2021 and currently in the seed stage, we are now hiring Emma Wanderer’s core team.

If you want to work in an exciting and progress-driven environment where you can constantly learn & grow, Emma Wanderer is the place for you:

  • Highly independent and self-responsible working style with a lot of flexibility (naturally, we offer remote work).

  • We live a highly value-based, trust-driven and transparent company culture with no to low hierarchies.

  • Take responsibility for maintaining and scaling our technical infrastructure as the product grows

  • Hands-on experience leading a team and product from prototype through its growth.

  • The experience and confidence to make technical decisions, identify and overcome technical challenges and prioritise relentlessly.

  • Ability to communicate technical concepts to product managers, investors and non-technical audiences.

  • Fluent in English, German is a plus.

  • Last but not least: willingness to deliver, learn, try & fail, challenge and be challenged.
