Senior Backend Developer Go

If you are an experienced developer and a team player with a good sense of humor and good set of communication skills, then we’d like to hear from you!


What are you going to do?

As a Backend Software Developer at Coosto you will work on our SaaS application with which our customers make daily decisions based on social media data. You will work in one of our multidisciplinary scrum teams consisting of talented, driven and helpful members. And together, you will be responsible for one or several of Coosto's domains. A team in Coosto is responsible for the entire lifecycle of their domains, from development to maintenance, so you have full ownership of ensuring the best experience for our customers. 
You have a clear sense on how to build services that 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 services in Go, and it is very likely you’ll also work quite a bit in additional languages like Typescript/Node.js or PHP. Flexibility in switching languages is a common trade in our developers. 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 research new technologies when appropriate.

As a senior developer you play a big part in guiding other developers in your team to a next level and you advise management on what is needed to ensure our software is future proof and scales with customer demands.

From Iran to Coosto: 'This was the perfect opportunity'.

Moving from a city with more than three million people to Eindhoven, just for Coosto. Morteza Hosseini (34) took that chance in January 2020 and has no regrets. “I am happy here.”
