Senior Backend Engineer

We are searching for a motivated, passionate senior backend engineer who wants to become a Martian. Someone with a strong senior experience in any backend tech stack and willing to learn new technologies (Node.js & Go).

Let's be a bit more pragmatic

If you value clean code, solid architecture and a performance-driven approach, this is a great opportunity for growth and feeling fresh & inspired like a junior again, but without having to compromise on working conditions.

Having build complex scalable backend solutions that have been tested rigorously on security and performance, is where you'll score the most.

Of course, don't be shy if you're stronger on full-stack or various other disciplines or technologies, we'd love to hear you out.

We're almost sold if you...

  • ... love technology and keep up to date with industry trends
  • ... care about details and know how much testing and optimization matter
  • ... work well with teams in a deadline-driven environment
  • ... believe that automatization can improve everyday work drastically
  • ... value curiosity above your comfort zone
  • ... observe, challenge and improve ideas on a daily basis
  • ... have overcome the 'hasn't been done yet' syndrome
  • ... are persistent till you get it right
  • ... are fun and engaging

If you want us to be sold entirely, you got to have the following skills to be considered…

Your must-have skills / experience

  • ... have at least 3 - 5 years of working experience in any backend technology (so senior-level) and willingness to learn a new stack
  • ... are genuinely enthusiastic about the Node.js or Go (even if you still don’t have relevant experience in these specific technologies)
  • ... experience with Javascript and Typescript
  • ... Document REST APIs with Swagger/Postman
  • ... Unit/integration testing
  • ... Familiar with Docker
  • ... Advanced GIT usage

Once the chemistry is checked, you'll also need to go through a test and a tech meeting to demonstrate a thoughtful approach to solving complex architectural problems while embedding security and performance layers at a high level.

Keep in mind that we’re open to talents who are quick learners, even if you lack some of those skills but excel in others, we’re open to investing time in your learning curve.

Bonus points
