Career at Superside?
Do you want to work remotely in a diverse and distributed team in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) and have a big impact on a product? Do you want to be part of a high-growing scaleup that delivers both a combined service and software platform to brands like Facebook, Amazon, Shopify, and Coinbase and help them organize their creative workflows better? We are looking for new members at all levels to join us and build the platform for modern creative work!
Superside was founded in 2015 and is backed by Y Combinator, Slack Fund, Freestyle Capital, and High Alpha Capital. The company is scaling rapidly and grew over 340% the last year, and are looking forward to continuing the ride towards becoming a unicorn.
Demand for digital content has exploded with the rapid growth of online advertising and social media. Design and creative have become a huge bottleneck for marketing teams. Marketing teams at large companies often have inefficient processes for managing fast-frequency, iterative creative production. Many companies are still stuck in the TV era (e.g. 1 big campaign per quarter) and not properly set up to handle the large-scale creative production required online, where hundreds of micro-campaigns and thousands of individual assets are needed every month. Design and creative therefore often becomes a bottleneck in these marketing teams, reducing speed of execution and ultimately slowing company growth.
The Superside software and service helps them “un-bottleneck” creative, and ultimately lets the marketing team move much faster, knowing that with a Superside partnership there is almost no chance of missing a deadline. Superside has recruited 250 of the best creatives in the world, from top creative agencies only, working together remotely from 50+ different countries. Everyone is working virtually together inside the SuperSpace app, our purpose-built internal creative operations system. Superside has formed deep partnerships with some of the most respected tech brands in the world like Amazon, Facebook, Salesforce, Coinbase and Shopify, and have built an end-to-end creative workflow and collaboration platform to help them organize their creative processes better.

Life at Superside’s Tech, Product & Design team
Our TPD (Tech, Product and Design) team is remote and contains multiple self-directed and cross-functional teams fully distributed across EMEA. The members represent 14 nationalities with alumni from Adobe, Revolut, Yandex and Mail.ru. We are intellectually curious and creative thinkers, eager to grow and ready to make a big impact in the world. We analyse data, talk to users, prototype and iterate. We don’t need offices, our conversations happen in Google Meets and Slack. We focus on discovering and solving real-world user problems, not just building and shipping features. Teams at Superside own the complete software lifecycle starting from the roadmap, implementation, testing, deployment and operations. We foster an open feedback culture and Everyone’s opinion is important to push our common mission forward. As a member of our engineering team you’ll take on a key role in this process and see your work be used by amazing companies. Today, our engineering and product team consists of 16 members, but we are growing fast and aim to grow our organization to 100 people in the next 12 to 18 months.
Words from some of our team members:
“I joined for the possibility to work in a dynamic, rapidly changing environment with real impact on the company and its product. Enjoy being part of the team for the interesting challenges and great colleagues”
Tor Egil – Product Manager
“I joined superside because the product idea caught my eye and I found it interesting and with great potential. After joining Superside, I really enjoy the friendliness of my colleagues, also something I really like is the diversity and how much you can learn from a multi-cultural team. Technical side of things, the engineering team is using modern tools and languages, also planning to evolve the product using the latest tech and this keeps an engineer more motivated and excited about future plans.”
Youssef – Senior Software Engineer
“I joined Superside because I felt its the best place for me where I can enjoy working remotely, and they’ll be the best place to achieve remote work without affecting other things I really was looking for at the company I’m aiming to work with:
– Great team culture
– Continues learning and growing
– Diversity not only in the team, but also in the kind of challenges you’ll be facing
– Up to date with recent technologies
– Startup mode is still active, but I really felt it’s different this time, great team collaboration is making it easier for Superside than any other startup to shine, its a very promising company”
Ahmad – Senior Software Engineer
“The main reason for me to choose the Superside was an opportunity to be a part of world-level design production company, work closely with the best designers, learn a lot and help to push the design industry forward by creating a great tech platform and providing unique and useful tools. Also small tech team size was a reason for me and it was a chance to build an international dream team of engineers. “
Dmitrij – Lead Frontend Engineer
We believe that the best teams are tightly connected, and we have therefore facilitated in multiple ways members in Superside to get to know each other and also have social time remote. One of the things we are doing is that we are arranging a remote coffee break every friday called Fika, where we either play some online games or discuss the latest news. We are also so lucky to have a wide range of communities across Superside where like-minded can join and meet each other, like for example #-s-tribe-foodlove for food lovers, #-s-tribe-pets for those who just loves to show their pets or see other pets or #-s-tribe-worldtravel for those who loves to travel and share their journeys.
