Backend Developer Go

Do you thrive when working on backend applications? Are you a team player with a good sense of humor and strong communication skills? And are you looking for an opportunity to work in an international environment? Then get in touch!

Backend Developer Go
What will you be doing?

As a backend software developer, you’ll be working on services that form the base of our Social Media management tool. You’ll be part of one of our multidisciplinary scrum teams consisting of talented, driven and helpful developers. And together with a Product Owner you are responsible for creating your backlog and delivering quality solutions. You and your team take ownership of the services and software you build. And you make sure the services are testable, easy to maintain and resilient. You will work closely with our other development teams to make sure the functionality you build fits seamlessly with the needs and requirements of our customers. 

You will be developing new features in Go, and it is very likely you’ll also work quite a bit in additional languages like Python, PHP or Typescript/Node.js. Some other technologies you’ll definitely work with are Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, Kafka, Elasticsearch, MongoDB and MySQL. And nothing stands in your way to explore and introduce new technologies when that is a clear better fit.

The ideal match

You have the drive to build high quality backend solutions. You prefer the command line over a UI. You are not afraid to learn new stuff. You like to challenge yourself and others and to continuously improve your coding skills. You thrive on working in a team, are in for a joke  and you don’t take yourself too seriously. Furthermore:

  • You have a bachelor or master degree in the area of Computer Science or equivalent;
  • You rock in Backend Development;
  • You have experience with at least several of the following technologies: Go, Python, Node.js, PHP, Docker, Kubernetes, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ, Kafka, MySQL, MongoDB;
  • You are no stranger to Git;
  • You feel comfortable working in an Agile environment;
  • You have excellent communication skills;
  • You are fluent in English, both written and spoken.
