Take full ownership of your services: you’ll have a leading role in the architectural design and implementation. Growth mindset - You’ll work together with product management to prioritize the requirements in your area.

What we expect of you:

You have years of backend development experience in a fast growing company where tradeoff decisions are made every day. You want to understand the business aspects in-depth to be able to make significant impact in your area. You have experience with Ruby on Rails and in-depth knowledge of either Node.js or Go. Nice to have : Experience in the world of eCommerce is a plus. Also if you don’t shy away from frontend development then great - we appreciate people who can solve the whole business problem end-to-end.
