About us

Reflect is a people analytics solution.

Our mission

HR tech and people analytics are booming! Last year, more than 200 million dollars were raised by people analytics startups. A new world raises: HR is no longer an administrative or talent management role but a strategic one. To be competitive, companies need to offer a great place to work, career paths, challenging roles, modern management, exceptional recruitment, etc. However, it is a challenge for companies to have a clear and unified vision of their workforce: data is fragmented across a litany of HR tools, and each one has a different data model. Companies need data to make better people and organizational decisions and drive their people strategy. Our mission: create a unique source of truth for HR data.

Our team

We are a complementary team of two cofounders: Baptiste, the CTO and, L茅opold, the CEO. We met at Theodo and previously cofounded another startup together (DUNK).

Our product

Reflect is an analytics solution that integrates multiple HR systems to give a unique source of truth of employees' data to help companies make better people decisions.

Our values

馃寫 Ambition: we love people who challenge the status quo. Learn fast and break the rules!
馃挜 Ownership: at Reflect, people have an impact. Be humble in victory, and be resilient in failure.
馃 Transparency: we are building a company based on trust. Know the good & the bad news.

Your mission

We are looking for a strong full-stack (Back + Front) Software Engineer willing to join us in our mission to build the future of HR.
You will be the first Software engineer in the team working closely with the most creative CTO in the place, Baptiste Jan.
This is an exciting mission: you will build a product from (almost) scratch, you will ship in production every week, features that directly impact our clients, and you will be part of the product roadmap strategy.

You never say 鈥渢hat鈥檚 not my job鈥: you take full ownership and responsibility over outcomes.
You make everyone else on the team better. Your presence, positivity, and drive inspires others to step up their game.
