  • You’re a passionate software engineer with 5+ years professional experience and a solid DevOps mentality, confident operating workloads on cloud environments.
  • A strong interest in functional programming, design patterns and Domain-Driven Design is especially welcomed as you will be exposed to a number of these technical concepts.
  • You enjoy working with AWS services across our tech-stack such as ECS, EC2, RDS, ALB, S3, Cloudformation, Fargate etc., and feel comfortable with our runtime environment using the JVM (Scala, Java).

  • You’re known for being a problem solver who is eager to drive technical solutions from idea to production.

You will have the opportunity to grow personally & professionally by joining our engineering team when visiting/running meet-ups, holding internal presentations, organizing tech workshops or keeping our dev-reading club alive. If this is still not enough, there are also projects you’re welcome to contribute to, e.g. open-source projects.
