Who we are and what we do

Deel is a global team that helps businesses hire anyone, anywhere, easily. Deel consists of more than three thousand self-driven individuals spanning over 100 countries. Our unified yet diverse culture keeps us continually learning and innovating the Deel platform and our products for customers.

Companies should be able to hire the best talent anywhere in the world, so we are building the best platform to make that a reality. Our market-leading technology, expertise, and global team are crucial to the success of Deel’s platform. We deliver the best products and platform features in our space, enabling millions of jobs worldwide and connecting the global workforce with the best companies and opportunities.

Why should you be part of Deel's success story?

A 30-mile hiring radius should no longer dictate how companies hire because great talent lives everywhere. Deel sees a world without hiring borders and endless talent that pairs perfect candidates with great companies.

We offer global teams all the tools they need to hire, onboard, manage, pay, and scale at full speed. We aim to foster a diverse global economy by building a generational platform that seamlessly connects companies with talent worldwide.

After our successful Series D in 2021, we raised another $50M last year, doubling our valuation to $12B.

There’s never been a more exciting time to join Deel — the market leader in international payroll and compliance.

Get ready to:

  • Be a part of a truly cross-functional team

  • Participate in product planning (From discovery all the way to deployment); We want your input at all stages of the Software Development Lifecycle!

  • Collaborate! Our teams work together to develop robust new features, API’s, continuously improve our industry-leading products and find and fix any bugs at Deel Speed.

  • Ensure our customers receive a white-glove experience with our products!

What the Infra Engineering team does

The team was created to support Deel engineering growth and build a platform for product teams, so they could ship business value faster. Deel is at a very unique position because we are big enough that we need the platform but we are young enough to not have it yet. There is a dedicated DevOps team and they take care of the infrastructure, while we work on the edge between DevOps and engineering enforcing standards and best practices, creating tooling, maintaining internal libraries, providing architectural guidance and owning some high-loaded core services, responding to production incidents when needed. It’s 70% Engineering and 30% DevOps. We have a lot of freedom, but it comes with responsibility.

Who are we looking for?

  • 5+ years of experience with Node.js and a strong knowledge of it

  • AWS or similar cloud experience

  • Kubernetes, Helm and Docker knowledge

  • Experience with Postgres/Mysql, RabbitMq/Nats/Kafka

  • Strong system design and problem solving skills, we often deal with the “unknown”

  • Strong communication skills, we often need to orchestrate projects with 20+ teams

  • You are hands-on troubleshooter

  • You are ready for challenges

Extra brownie points if you…

  • Have experience building internal tooling: npm packages, frameworks

Total Rewards

Our workforce deserves fair and competitive pay that meets them where they are. With scalable benefits, rewards, and perks, our total rewards programs reflect our commitment to inclusivity and access for all.

At Deel, you’ll enjoy:

  • Computer equipment applicable to your role

  • Stock grant opportunities

  • Additional perks and benefits based upon your employment status and country

  • The ability to choose where you work whether it be your home, the beach, or a WeWork
