Engineering at Qualified

Our lean yet mighty engineering team is structured as small, flexible groups that are split into two larger areas of ownership: Product and Platform. When you join, we'll find the best fit for your skills, aiming to place you where you can make the biggest impact. Our work is organized in two-week cycles, during which engineers are entrusted with full ownership of their work, from the initial idea to its market launch.

Our main goal is to develop a product capable of handling tasks in real time, requiring straightforward, effective solutions.
