Who are you?
For this position, we are looking for someone who will thrive in the collaborative work environment and development process that we’ve built. You need to have the passion and curiosity needed to seek and find solutions on your own, but the experience and lack of prestige to be able to know when to rather go to a colleague for input and help. Good communications skills and a team-first mindset is key! To cultivate and facilitate this further, we organize a monthly Lab Day, where you will be able to learn, explore and share, alongside your colleagues.
Looking at your technical background, we want you to have both experience in and knowledge of building modern background cloud services, built on a micro service architecture and REST APIs, as well as building and deploying backend service, CI/CD using containers, such as Docker.
Your background could be in Ruby on Rails, Golang, Java, .NET/C#, Python, C++ or others. You care about quality, and know how to write readable, maintainable and performant code.
As we are scaling up our tech organisation, we are looking for both junior and senior developers.
