Core Responsibilities

As backend developer you will drive the application development in close collaboration with the rest of the team.

Moreover, together with other senior engineers, you will:
• Build and maintain existing microservices.
• Build cloud infrastructure (IaC) to support the frontend applications and backend microservices. Examples could be: databases (relational and NoSQL), VPC’s, WAFs, security groups, CloudFront distributions, S3 buckets etc.

Play your part in our team succeeding

We are an agile and innovative team, working on our B2B web shop and other customer facing experiences. We work with a modern tech stack based on serverless technologies in AWS. Our frontend is based on ES6 and React with a GraphQL contract to the backend which is a hybrid: both container based (Java/JVM) and serverless (JavaScript + TypeScript/Node.js). Cloud infrastructure is developed using IaC.

Sharing and bringing forth new insights for improvements is an integral part of the role to ensure that we constantly strive to produce the best possible quality in our digital products.

Do you have what it takes?

You have 5+ years' experience with backend development in a public cloud context such as: AWS, GCP, Azure, etc. along with a passion for technology, open source and eagerness to learn new technologies. Ideally, you have a bachelor’s or master’s degree within Computer Science, Software Engineering, Computer Technology, or a similar related field. Familiarity working in an agile setup is expected.

To succeed in this role, you ideally have experience within some of the following:
• Backend development for the JVM and/or Node.js.
• Linux or Unix OS.
• CI/CD (e.g. GitHub, Jenkins Declarative Pipeline, GitHub Actions or GitLab).
• Working with integration (e.g. APIs, messaging, rpc, etc.).
• Infrastructure as code (e.g. Terraform, CloudFormation or CDK).
• Designing and developing APIs (RESTful, GraphQL, etc.).
• Kubernetes and/or Docker is a plus.

Advanced English both written and verbally is a need since we are an international gathered team.
