Backend developer

Our ambition is to replace the remote control in a modern digital home. Moving there we work close together with designers, UX and engineers with different skill sets. Our techstack is built upon different technologies and architectures like MicroServices in PHP, Node.js, React, Swift and Kotlin.

We are humble, care a lot about our product, our users and our co-workers

Today we are 10 developers delivering a high-end product by

  • hypothesis driven development
  • performing A/B tests
  • verify our code through code reviews
  • work together with mob programming

We believe in responsible and secure teams with high responsibility over product as well as workload and to learn and to teach. Rather than micromanage, our managers do what they do best - helping their employees grow, understand user needs, frame technical strategies and form product visions.

Now we are facing several exciting challenges like expanding to new markets, finding new strategic partners and guiding our users in the streaming jungle in new ways.

Skills & Requirements

This role emphasizes our backend based on following technologies that we expect you to know :

  • PHP
  • MySQL/MariaDB/Percona
  • Redis/Memcached
  • Elasticsearch
  • Node.js
  • Chef/Ansible/Puppet

As important as your will and curiosity to learn is your will to share and enthusiasm about your knowledge. You like to discuss different solutions for both technical, product, organizational and business specific challenges. You are the pragmatic programmer - you understand that the perfect technical solution in some cases have to stand back for the business - even if your role of course will be to advocate for the technical.

Today you are probably a developer in a team aiming to shoulder more responsibility and are ready for the next step in your career.

Me as a manager:

As a leader I encourage your own responsibility and creativity in our product as well as in your own personal development. I am open and clear in my communication and I like discussing matters - high or low. I like to see your strong energy and want to coach you in your role as well as your person. Your attitude is as important as your formal qualifications. Our cooperation is at its best when we challenge each other from different angles and unite in a common way forward where I support you in reaching your goals.
