Principal Backend Engineer

Bucket is a Danish tech company founded to empower product teams with a repeatable approach to shipping features that customers crave. Bucket is building the best possible solution for validating feature success by providing a report after each iteration showcasing the success of the new feature. The tool is designed by and for Product/Engineering Managers, Developers, and designers to ship features with customer impact. They enable the prioritization of resources by showing which features work and giving immediate feedback on the effects of the engineer’s hard work. In short, they enable automated and consistent feature evaluation by putting “review and iterate” back in the agile development. Bucket was founded in 2021 by their demonstrated founding team, who previously founded Opbeat, which Elastic acquired in 2017. Bucket successfully ended their pre-seed round in April, gaining an investment of 2 million USD from the Venture Capital Creandum and a substantial list of Business Angels. Their technology is built in-house, using modern technologies to sustain millions of events simultaneously as Bucket is tracking user actions and transforming data into usable and understandable insights.
