Our goal is to connect the world of science and make research open to all.
Work with impact At ResearchGate your input can help over 18 million scientists and researchers to solve global challenges. Whether studying the first moments of our universe or tracking global warming, our users are making a real difference.
Building at scale This means creating solutions that facilitate engineers in multiple product teams to continuously ship reliable features and great user experiences.
Grow at work At ResearchGate we put people first. You’ll join an environment where your personal development is very important to us. In regular one on ones & quarterly feedback talks, you and your manager will identify possible paths for you to grow, plan the actionable steps forward and agree on the right amount of guidance needed to reach your goals.
Have ownership As a member of the Platform Engineering team, you’ll be given the opportunity to own medium to long-term initiatives and drive the continuous improvement of tools & integrations. Your thinking, your feedback on processes, and your execution will be key to the success of new ideas.

You will join a dedicated Platform Engineering team operating at the intersection of frontend and backend. We’re experts in providing tools, libraries or workflow improvements to make the lives of the engineers in product teams easier and them more productive.
Our Mission is to enable every frontend engineer to efficiently build reliable, performant, user-friendly features that can be tested and monitored easily.
Meet the crew:
Naoto is our Resident Artist. Creating practical solutions for our users doesn’t mean they can’t be beautiful. He’s got an eye for these important details and always an open ear for feedback.
Daniel is our Chief Gardener. He takes care of our landscape with his wealth of knowledge and the continued effort to make it bloom.
Michael is our Zenmaster. His empathetic and level-headed approach brings us always back to what’s important and makes the team better. He also knows PHP inside-out.
Stefan is the captain. If this was a Hollywood movie, he's the one willing to sacrifice himself for the crew. Though he is very comfortable with the fact that the stakes aren’t that high around here.
