Posted on Thursday, October 19, 2023

The Executive Dashboards team builds a dashboard experience that delivers insights to top-level decision-takers (CIOs, Heads of IT, etc.) to enable them with taking the right actions for continuously transforming their IT landscape and delivering business value. The team is part of the “Insights and Transformations” group that provides more capabilities around getting insights, taking action and executing transformation projects.

For the Executive Dashboards team we are looking for a senior backend engineer with strong skills in building and running robust and highly available Node.js services with a high focus on delivering customer value. Additionally having experience and willingness to contribute to our frontend (preferably with Angular) is a bonus as the team owns the product end-to-end.

WHY SHOULD YOU CARE? Well, there are multiple reasons:

  • We're on a strong growth trajectory in terms of ARR and team size while scaling in a sustainable and profitable way, making us successful in even challenging economical phases.
  • Our products are industry-leading with happy customers and a NPS of 70. Our culture of empowered product teams means we solve problems instead of implementing features. We drive our efforts through close contact with our customers and measuring how they use our products.
  • We build it, we run it. We ensure customers can rely on resilient and performant products. We stay ahead of trouble through a high degree of automation, alerting, SRE practises and On-Call. There is no dedicated operations department in place at LeanIX.
  • We prioritize continuous improvement, collaboration and knowledge sharing. We constantly iterate on our engineering practices and skills to build a software architecture that supports fun at work and long term success of the business.
  • We value open access to leadership, transparency and personal development. We successfully enabled many software engineers to grow along with the company into engineering manager or technical lead positions. You’ll continue this success story while we offer you opportunities to grow.
  • We value a healthy life balance and our employees make room for interests and relations outside of their job. We offer a hybrid working environment, providing a high grade of flexibility while meeting colleagues in one of our offices from time to time.


  • Implementation of scalable, resilient & secure backend services in Node.js
  • Option to contribute to the implementation of our UIs based on micro frontends with Angular
  • Collaboratively shape the products we build with a product-minded engineering mindset
  • Continuous improvement of our architecture, CI/CD pipelines and codebase
  • Passionate colleagues who are looking forward to share knowledge (see our blog!) and learn from you
  • Shape the way we work. You know a technology that will improve our daily work or our product? Bring it on! Active participation is the name of the game.


  • Microservices based on Node.js & Typescript
  • Infrastructure based on Azure ecosystem, Kubernetes, & Docker
  • API technologies such as REST and GraphQL
  • Event-driven architecture
  • Modern CI/CD toolchains (e.g. Github Actions, Feature Toggling)
  • Angular (Micro) Frontends (TypeScript, Tailwind, NgRx, Nx, Jest)
  • Monitoring & Alerting, e.g. Instana
  • Product Usage Tracking using Amplitude & Azure Log Analytics

We are looking for someone who likes to:
