The Job

We are looking for a Back-End Web Developer responsible for managing the interchange of data between the server and the users. Your primary focus will be development of all server-side logic, definition and maintenance of the central database, and ensuring high performance and responsiveness to requests from the front-end. You will also be responsible for integrating the front-end elements built by your coworkers into the application. A basic understanding of front-end technologies is therefore necessary as well.

Required Engineering Skills:

  • You appreciate the difference between a database and a datastore system
  • You master ES6 and the latest great features of NodeJS
  • You understand asynchronicity in a single-threaded process
  • You know how to handle errors for audit and incident drilling
  • You have a clear understanding of vertical and horizontal scalability and you can participate in a fact-driven discussion which to choose and how to change and when
  • You know your ways around Git / GitFlow
  • You have experience working in a Kanban/SCRUM team

Desired Engineering Skills:

  • You may want to dig more into PSQL and Postgres’ functions
  • You may want to play around with event-driven vs queue-based architecture
  • You may want to explore some frontend stuff with React and Redux, mostly to handle the “frontend’s backend” with client-side data structures, in-memory and long term caching systems

Required Soft Skills:

  • You can work in a multicultural team
  • You can talk with your colleagues in a simple, humble and listening-oriented way
  • You accept feedback and take fast action on it

Desired Soft Skills:

  • You are good at laying down your ideas with business-oriented goals 
  • You give honest and straightforward feedback without harming people
  • You help your colleagues by holding them accountable on the feedback you give out
