Head of Engineering (m/w/d)
Sastrix is the new startup by two of the former evopark founders after having successfully sold their last company. Join us on our new adventure to reshape the software-as-a-service industry!
Sastrix is a virtual Software-as-a-Service procurement service and optimizes management and cost of SaaS tools for digital-first companies. We bring transparency into the SaaS landscape, reduce shadow IT and support in the acquisition of new tools. This includes continuous monitoring of software tools (under-usage, functional overlaps etc.), renewal management and even price negotiations with vendors. We typically save around 5-10% of monthly SaaS cost within the first weeks. Obviously, our mission is to save more money than we cost, creating a win-win situation with our customers.
As the Head of Engineering, you will be among our first 5 employees and help to kick off Sastrix! Your responsibilities will include but not be limited to:
