About Us

Taktile creates software products that enable our customers from the financial services industry to use their data to solve business problems they could not solve before.

We are convinced that ML/AI are very powerful tools that can make the world a better and wealthier place. Taktile exists to speed up the adoption of those tools and increase their positive impact on business and society.

Taktile is based in Berlin and New York City. It was founded by machine learning and data science veterans spanning the insurance, banking, and asset management markets. Our team consists of entrepreneurs, researchers, and engineers with a diverse set of backgrounds. Some of us attended top universities such as Harvard, Oxford, and ETH Zurich and some of us have no degree at all. We have accumulated extensive work experience in leading tech companies, top management consulting and the enterprise software sphere. Our backers include Y Combinator, Index Ventures, firstminute Capital and stellar angels such as the founders of Looker, GitHub, Mulesoft, Datadog and UiPath.

What You'll Do

  • Collaborate with our team on a suite of backend APIs implemented in Python, using FastAPI and Pydantic.
  • Continuously learn about new technologies and patterns and help design and improve our microservice architecture.
  • Design, implement and take ownership of RESTful APIs.
  • Work with our CI/CD infrastructure based on GitHub Actions.
  • Learn about our infrastructure based on Terraform and Kubernetes.
  • Come into the office (in Berlin) at least a couple of days a week, once the COVID-19 pandemic lets up.
  • Learn together with your co-workers, by following your intellectual curiosity to discover more about new markets and technologies, as well as by participating in our active feedback culture.

Ideal, But Not Required

  • Experience working with Python and FastAPI
  • Experience with microservice architectures
  • Proficiency in German, or a willingness to learn

Our Offer

  • Work with colleagues that lift you up, challenge you, celebrate you and help you grow. We come from many different backgrounds, but what we have in common is the desire to operate at the very top of our fields. If you are similarly capable, caring, and driven, you'll find yourself at home here.
  • Make an impact and meaningfully shape an early-stage company.
  • Experience a truly flat hierarchy and communicate directly with founding team members. Having an opinion and voicing your ideas is not only welcome but encouraged, especially when they challenge the status quo.
  • Learn from experienced mentors and achieve tremendous personal and professional growth. Get to know and leverage our network of leading tech investors and advisors around the globe.
  • Receive a top-of-market equity and cash compensation package.
  • Get access to a self-development budget you can use to e.g. attend conferences, buy books or take classes
  • Use the equipment of your choice including meaningful home office setup during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Make use of our relocation support if you're moving to Berlin. We can help with immigration.

Our Stance

  • We're eager to meet talented and driven candidates regardless of whether they tick all the boxes. We're looking for someone who will add to our culture, not just fit within it. We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underestimated and underrepresented in tech to apply.
  • We seek to actively recognize and combat racism, sexism, ableism and ageism. We embrace and support all gender identities and expressions, and celebrate love in its many forms. We won't inquire about how you identify or if you've experienced discrimination, but if you want to tell your story, we are all ears.
