About the role

🛷 At Sled we help organizations like Flixbus, AXA, or Clari find, understand, and trust their data.

🛡️ Data is the foundation of the information economy! Our mission is to help everybody in an organization to take data-driven decisions. We do that by democratizing access to trusted data and metrics.

❄️ Our laser focus on the Snowflake eco-system lets us build valuable workflows across the analytics value chain.

A major challenge at Sled is supporting a diverse set of users (highly technical to business) with relevant information. Business is changing fast, data is complex and there is a lot of noise. It is only getting worse. Help our customers by building a high signal UI that involves metric charts, execution graphs, data notifications, dashboards, …

If you are passionate about great user experience, and high-quality code, like working in a fast-moving, friendly, yet professional team, join Sled for the experience of a lifetime.

About the interview

40 min chat with co-founder Rick

  • Getting to know each other
  • Understand your motivation and past achievements
  • Answer your questions about the job, team, company...

Meet the team (2 or 3 calls x 20min)

  • Introduce each other
  • Answer technical questions

Paid Co-Working for 3-5 days (full-time)

  • Nothing helps us to understand if we have a fit better than actually working together.
  • This is like a small contract gig that will be paid and contains real tasks on our real code base.
  • We know this is a big ask since you probably need to take some days off for this. But to build a great team, there is no way around that. Worst case: you learn something and earn some money.

Why you should join Sled
