Web Performance Engineer (all genders) - Remote or Hamburg

Software / Web Development

Slow websites suck! Of the 3.5 hours you spend online each day, 20 minutes are wasted waiting for websites to load. In your life, you will waste one whole year.

Join our mission of building a web without loading times to make all Internet users happier. Our product Speed Kit is the all-in-one page speed tool and accelerates 7,000+ websites worldwide, including market-leading companies like BMW, Decathlon, and Carhartt.

Our world-class remote team uses the latest web technology trends to make our customer websites up to 4x faster and to improve the user experience for 160 million users per month.

Sounds exciting? Come on board and help us so that no one has to suffer from lost time!

As the number of potential clients is growing we are looking for further addition to our Product Integration Team, in the position as Web Performance Engineer (all genders).

To give you a better understanding of what this position consists of, we would like to share a sneak peek of a day in life

The team will come together in the morning and you get assigned to a new customer. You start by checking out the website to get a feel for the current state of the performance as well as the user experience. You identify bottlenecks using your initial check-up and configure Speed Kit to tackle them as best as possible. You will likely also stumble across frontend issues with lazy loading, content shifts, or else and will come up with solutions to improve upon those.

You share your (custom) solutions with the team to probably have them find their way back into our product or become the template for additional tooling you will develop.

You finish your day off by helping one of our existing customers adjust the configuration for the frontend rework and celebrating with a cold drink on our roof terrace.


From this little sneak peek, let’s summarize the tasks you will be confronted with:

  • Analysis of customer websites for performance bottlenecks and/or UX problems
  • Optimizing the sites’ performance using Speed Kit
  • Developing custom solutions to tackle frontend issues (like slider frameworks, flicker control, lazy loading, etc.)
  • Developing internal and external tooling to either empower our customers or automate integration processes
  • Monitor existing customers and adjust the config to maintain the best possible performance


We like to keep this part as open as possible since the most important thing is your motivation to tackle new challenges coming our way each day and with that, to grow and keep on learning.

Therefore, we do not care if you have a degree, professional education, or are changing your career.

Nevertheless, we would like you to have experience with web basics like HTML, CSS and Javascript.

If you have heard of web performance metrics and potentially did some optimizations already you are more than prepared to give it a try.
