Backend Developer is a leading digital enabler and offers powerful digital tools to companies and entrepreneurs. We serve more than 2 million customers in 15 countries.

Please note the start date for this position is 01.10.2021.

Your opportunity

We are the "Business Process Automation" unit, and as the name indicates, we prefer lazy developers who like generating code and automating tasks. We also build solutions and frameworks to help other business units automate their work. Among other things, we have built a framework that enables developers to generate pluggable microservices, which get automatically deployed to a modern infrastructure on Kubernetes. The microservices themselves are event-driven and communicate over Kafka. Additionally, we build and support core services and solutions such as authentication, authorization, billing, communication, etc., which are used by rest of the company.

What your day will look like

During the first month, you will get acquainted with your teammates as well as the code, and will work on a very focused assignment. In the next 2 months, you will start to expand your horizons to other parts of the project and participate by owning issues from the sprint board. In the following 3 months, you will propose improvements to the codebase based on your learning and observations thus far. As your understanding becomes better, you will take ownership of a sub-set of the project, and lead refinements and the subsequent implementations.


What you have

  • You are someone who's aware of their strengths and weaknesses, and not an all round Rockstar. 
  • You are opinionated and informed and are always informed about your opinions, but not stubborn and unreasonable. 
  • You enjoy taking responsibility, but are also comfortable trusting your teammates to get things done. 
  • You bring at least one new piece of expert knowledge to the table, but are also hungry to learn something from your teammates. 
  • You have practical programming experience in PHP/Symfony, or an OOP language, along with a good grasp of design patterns. 
  • You have a deep understanding of how the web works, and how to ensure that your code is secure and performant. 
  • You are well versed in at least one of the following: 
  • Microservices (experience with Docker, Kubernetes, and Kafka is a plus)
  • Python
  • Web security
  • Testing (Unit, Acceptance, Usability, Security, Performance)
  • Strong preference for someone living in the EU

  • A fantastic office (for when we can go back)
