🔷 ABOUT THE TEAM AND PROJECT
You will join an NMP Notifications Team in Poland – this team is responsible for a notifications platform , pushing more than 100 million notifications each day. Many teams already use the Notifications platform as an essential building block to reach their business goals, and we believe its importance will only grow. We also own a frontend part of it.

Some key technologies we use: Kotlin for the backend, React for frontend, Kafka for communication between services, Postgres DB, Kubernetes , Travis , and Google Cloud Platform.
You will collaborate closely with the Product Manager, UX, and other teams to understand the needs and requirements.
