About you – our next backend web developer

For this role, we are looking for an ambitious and eager developer who is happy to explore various projects and types of work we deliver to our clients. While most of our stack includes Go and Node, we are experimenting and working with different technologies like Elixir. If you are eager to learn and explore your potential – we are an excellent place for your ambitions.

Your skills should include the following:

  • you have at least 2-3 years of experience, but we are also interested in hiring senior devs
  • knowledge of and familiarity with Google Cloud ( and/or AWS, Azure, Heroku…)

  • familiarity with RESTful APIs, but if you are familiar with alternatives like GraphQL – that’s a plus
  • experience and familiarity working with Git and code versioning principles
  • excellent knowledge of English (spoken, written)
  • open-minded, challenge-seeking and eager to learn from other colleagues but also on your own

In addition to this, we value your soft-skills. What are the soft skills for developers? Read on!

Formal education degrees and qualifications are not crucial, although preference will be given to persons with higher education. The driver’s license is not a requirement.

Please, keep in mind that we’d love to talk with you regardless of your previous tech stack. We believe that dependable software engineers are best defined by their ability to learn, grown, and adapt, not just by their sheer knowledge of specific tech stack. Your experience and motivation are more important to us than a single specific technology.

  • Exciting and challenging projects spanning different areas of your interest
  • A chance to grow and learn from the day one
  • A competitive benefits package (salary, generous paid vacation days, bonuses, additional healthcare coverage, team gathering, skills exchange, occasional travel, Kid Cash)
