  • Gather and address technical and design requirements
  • Provide training and support to internal teams
  • Build reusable code and libraries for future use
  • Being adaptive to emerging technologies



What we look for:


  • Proven work experience as a backend engineer
  • BSc degree in Computer Science or a relevant field of engineering
  • Teamwork skills with a problem-solving attitude
  • In-depth understanding of the entire development process (design, development, deployment)
  • Hands-on experience with programming language Go is plus
  • Production grade experience with NoSQL and SQL databases.
  • Production grade experience with in-memory database management system Redis
