Makrwatch’s vision is to create financial opportunities for hundreds of thousands of content creators around the world, regardless of their location.

Makrwatch engineers develop next-generation solutions that improve how brands discover, evaluate, and collaborate with YouTube creators. Our products handle massive amounts of information and process video, audio and text to discover insights and patterns that help brands understand their audience and how creators can interact better with them.

As a senior software engineer, you work with a small team and challenge yourself to solve complex projects that help our startup achieve results that traditionally required large teams. We need our engineers to be communicative, resourceful, fast learners, creative, and enthusiastic about using the latest technologies to create solutions that multiply our customers' success. You manage individual projects’ priorities, deadlines and deliverables. You design, develop, test, deploy, and maintain software solutions. The ideal candidate will have strong backend experience developing complex APIs that can efficiently handle large amounts of requests and data, but can also dabble in frontend development if needed!

Makrwatch, launched less than 4 years ago, already has multiple media agencies and brands using it to improve their collaborations with YouTube creators. We believe video will grow exponentially over the coming years. Together we will help marketing evolve to become more transparent, sustainable, and focused on improving people’s lives.
