We build on modern technologies, maintain a laser-sharp focus on the needs of our clients and strive to continuously improve our offering. Our goal is to become the market standard and we need your help to get there! 


Job Description

We realize that everyone is different and we value diversity. For this reason, we don’t have a definite checklist of must-have attributes we require from a talented back-end developer.


Instead, we value a thirst for knowledge, a passion for technology – and life! – and a drive to move things forward. To make it easier for you, here are some of the quantitative skills our current developers bring to the table:

 

  •  Expertise in Node.js and TypeScript
  •  Solid working knowledge of RabbitMQ (or other message brokers) and MongoDB
  •  Conceptual knowledge of CQRS, event sourcing, messaging, and microservices
  •  A good understanding of GraphQL and React.js
  •  Applied knowledge of Docker and Kubernetes*
  •  Familiarity with CI/CD workflows*
  •  Experience with agile project management / SCRUM

*Note: we do have a dedicated in-house DevOps team to support us with these

If you had previous exposure to four or more of these technologies and are looking for a new challenge then you should definitely contact us. We are looking for a fast learner with broad interests and a positive attitude. Of course, a degree in computer science, mathematics, physics, or engineering is always a plus and so are personal- or open-source tech projects to which you have made major contributions.
