About the Job

We, at Octopods (, are a small, sharp-focused and deliberate team. 

We built Octopods to connect businesses using Intercom (Live Chat) to the most popular messaging channels (WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, etc) out there. 

We started small, and we want to keep staying small, bootstrapped, and very profitable. But we do dream big, and we have plenty of big plans. 

We want to tackle our next set of exciting challenges in the next years to come and this is where YOU come in the picture, we want your help for us to do so.


About the role,

We are looking to hire a Senior Software Engineer to join our small distributed team around different parts of Ireland, and Canada. Ideally, we are looking for a generalist, someone who can wear many hats, someone who is pragmatic, and most importantly, who thinks from first principles . We work remotely, and so this is a 100% remote role. You can choose to work anywhere you'd like having at least 5 hours overlap with GMT+0.

Here are a few pieces of work you might have a chance to work on,

  • Building a docker infrastructure for our WhatsApp Business API offering.
  • Implementing a connection with a new Channel (Facebook, Skype, Instagram, etc).
  • Re-architecting our internal messaging pipeline.
  • Building a new pipeline for ingesting and serving messages from different channels.
  • Building Public APIs & Webhooks for our supported Channels.
  • Build on Intercom APIs and Intercom Canvas Kit framework.
  • And a few more equally exciting and challenging projects!


Your engineering skills are as important as your entrepreneurial skills to us. We value generalists who can take a problem from its most ambiguous state and deliver its end value to solve a real-world problem for our customers.


About pay & benefits,

  • A salary of between 35,000 to 45,000 Egyptian Pound per month.
  • 1 full-month yearly bonus.
  • Reimbursing your monthly gym fee.
  • Reimbursing your monthly internet bill.
  • A new laptop and equipment that you will need.
  • 100% remote, stress-free and friendly environment.
  • You'll have the opportunity to have a massive impact due to our size and being an early stage.
