Backend Engineer (m/f/d)

Berlin, Germany
Employee
IT / Software

In a world full of distractions, we have something outstanding to offer: focus. With our office & communication tools, we enable small and medium enterprises to direct their attention towards what really matters. Our SaaS solutions have been on the market for 20 years.

Our software-platform is built in Java, running on hundreds of servers, clients, and our own data centers. Now we want to bring our services to the next level.

This is what your challenges would look like: #1 Slicing the core application into microservices or even rebuilding it is your number one priority. #2 Keeping the infrastructure running while moving to AWS comes next. #3 Automating as much as possible is something you should look into. At the moment, we are thinking of using Puppet, Foreman, Terraform, and Ansible.

This is our plan for now. Do you have a better idea? Let us know - you’re the expert!

Tasks

Your responsibilities:

  • Bring our applications to the next level
  • Create new features with our PO and development team
  • Own and run our entire infrastructure
  • Increase levels of automation and high availability
  • Automate our infrastructure with Puppet and Ansible
  • Introduce new technology, especially cloud-based solutions with AWS and Azure
  • Implement DevOps concepts
  • Develop great ideas about how to improve our stack

Requirements

Things you’ve ideally experienced already:

  • You know how to support a good team spirit
  • You have 3 years of expertise with Java, Spring, Hibernate
  • You have ideas about how good and clean code looks like
  • You´ve developed prototypes and provided incremental improvements
  • You have crafted RESTful APIs, micro-services, SQL databases
  • You helped to create a DevOps-mindset
  • You have played around with CI/CD principles using Jenkins, Stash, Git, and Linux already
  • You have some experience with RabbitMQ and Elasticsearch
  • Ideally, you´ve seen a university from the inside. You haven´t? No worries, we like autodidacts too.

Benefits

*Your perks: *

  • Choose what's best for your: MacBook or PC?
  • Ride a bike or a train: we provide a bike or public transport ticket
  • Stay healthy and relaxed: we support Urban Sports Club
  • Become a Foam master or Bartender: enjoy the best coffee machine and beer from tap in our office
  • Level up your skills: we will get you eye-opening books
  • Take a course: we will support your hunger for education
  • You need some holidays? 28 days for everyone
  • You don´t smoke? Get one extra day off
  • You have hobbies and a family? Great. We have core hours to maintain flexibility

Sounds terrifying? Bummer! We’re sorry to hear that.
