Candidate description

About you

We think you have strong programming expertise in at least one language (knowledge of Elixir, Erlang, Haskell or Ruby is a strong plus).

We do not hire just based on experience with a few specific tools or languages or university degrees. Rather, we want to hire developers who are smart, experienced and self-driven and can learn our tools and adapt quickly to change.

You are interested in platforms that run at scale and know about caching, message queues and service-oriented architectures. You have probably spent some time setting up and managing Linux servers for your projects. You enjoy being part of a team, you are good at taking responsibility and you are a good communicator.

We would love to see you have experience with deployment tooling, monitoring, alerting, dashboard visualizations, load testing or live system debugging.


How to apply

Sounds interesting? Great, we would love to get to know you! Send us an email and tell us more about yourself and what you have worked on.
