About Tideways

We build and sell a Software-As-a-Service (SaaS) product called Tideways. Our software presents monitoring and profiling insights into web applications for our audience of mostly developers and system admins. The core functionality of our product is collection, analytics and visualization of time series and profiling data with a focus on providing helpful and actionable advice for our users.

Tideways is a new (2,5 years old) self-funded company, growing fast from customer revenue alone.

You have gained knowledge of UI/UX fundamentals and experience with modern UI/UX design for the web/browser as part of your previous work or education.

You would describe yourself more as a generalist than a specialist in your field.

You are highly motivated, committed to improving existing skills and like to learn new skills during working hours.

You are comfortable with speaking and writing English fluently and already speak German or are willing to learn German to reach the European CEFR level B2.

You live in the larger Bonn/Cologne area or like to relocate (EU-resident with a work-permit) with our support.

This includes roadmap discussions, prototyping, designing and implementing new features, refactoring existing server-side features into our single page application, test-automation, improving the quality of service, continued maintenance of the frontend stack and tools and passing on your knowledge to other members of the team.

We are a customer centric company, which is why everyone at Tideways helps with support in regular intervals, and you will be in contact with customers through our support system, video chat or e-mail. Updating documentation and resources for customers is another regular task. Members of the engineering teams are also assigned to our emergency contact rotation for up to a week every month.
