Job description

Hi, we're Smartlook!

We're working on our own product, an innovative Software-as-a-Service solution for product analytics, which is used by companies all over the world to achieve their full potential.

As we're so good at what we do, we've managed to score a EUR 3 million foreign investment, which will further help us to take our product to the next level.

We're a company where you can quickly make an impact, which will be seen all over the world.

  • Our specialization is the analytics of user behaviour - we're used by banks, cryptocurrency trading platforms, gaming developers, and ecommerce platforms
  • We're everywhere - our software development kits (SDK) are available for all big platforms: web and SPA, mobile apps, games in Unity and Unreal
  • We're creating a truly global product - more than 85% of your income is generated by foreign companies

A letter from CTO

Smartlook has been quite a ride in the past couple of years. We grew from zero to EUR 3 million+ in annual recurring revenue, and are serving companies across various industries ranging anywhere from simple blogs to large banks.

What started as a simple session recording tool for websites is now a feature-rich analytical solution offering unparalleled insights into how online products work.

Smartlook is truly a product company. Having over 2000 paying customers from all over the world, we never focus on a single customer or a single geo. Our strategy is rather based on coming up with ideas that are applicable across a large portion of our user base.

The person I am looking for is someone who has the ability to think outside the box, and has the ability to deeply understand cumulative effects of running a SaaS business and its value creation.
