Engineering for you is more about a clean codebase, paradigms and algorithms than languages, frameworks or platforms. You have chosen your favorite stack in which you have lots of experience, but you’re able to get stuff done in any environment you need to and with every change you leave the codebase better off than before.
You will be one of the first members of our engineering team and will work on many different projects and touch many different systems: from our app backends (REST webservices) to our demand forecasting service and our cash register. Because our team is new, you will get to influence which technologies we will use.
As a Senior Software Engineer, you will become a go to person to answer technical questions for the rest of the team.
Create new and work on existing systems across a wide range of projects (e.g. a clean and elegant API layer spanning across all of our legacy systems, backend APIs consumed by our web and mobile apps, production tooling for our machine learning models etc.)
Improve and maintain our production environment, for example by adding monitoring and alerting (DevOps)
Set up a modern development workflow for our team, including a continuous integration pipeline and automated deployments
Work closely together with our frontend engineering and data science teams
Support other developers in your team with technical guidance
Minimum of 3 years of software development experience in a general purpose programming language
BSc degree in Computer Science, similar technical field of study or equivalent practical experience
Ability to quickly get up to speed in any programming language or system if needed
Ability to tackle problems outside your comfort zone and get things done without supervision
Excellent spoken and written communication skills in English
Experience working with one or more from the following: web application development, Unix/Linux environments, distributed and parallel systems, service oriented architectures, REST APIs, developing large software systems
Experience working in teams following an agile software development methodology
Basic knowledge of German
We also have a role for Junior / Mid-Level developers available here.
