The opportunity

Never met a query you can’t improve? Enjoy teaching developers how to rewrite their statements and why? We need people who are confident in their knowledge and free with their opinions. We need DBAs who want to help improve our existing schemas and shape tomorrow’s data layer.  

What you can expect

We are a remote-first team, with the option to work out of our Cork HQ campus, Belfast or Boston hubs - or fully remotely. At Teamwork we believe that work is what you do, not where you sit.

You will experience a collaborative and flat culture, where titles are less valued than delivering outcomes that impact and move the dial. We want you to have what you need to hit the ground running, so you will get the best kit to help you do your best work from Day 1. Our onboarding program will give you the opportunity to meet Teamworkers, learn about our market leading product and get under the hood of our Grow and Scale strategy.  

We expect our people to work hard, level up and turn up every day focused on being their best for each other and our customers. In return, you can expect to know what success looks like in your role, and have regular check-ins with your manager. In addition we will work with you to grow your career with Teamwork.

But when all is said and done we want you to have fun and enjoy working with us! We put a lot of effort into having regular social events, a weekly all staff catch up with quizzes and prizes to be won, and an annual staff gathering Grand Council focused on  celebrating the wins, planning for success and building connection & collaboration. Strengths that have made us what we are today!  But take some time and read more about our story and our values  here

Teamwork, where you can #beyourfuture.
