All of our solutions are built with a happy developer in mind, who are integrating with our API. Our current technology portfolio is focused on Elixir, Ruby, AWS and Kubernetes.

  • Entry level experience with data storage and search solutions (PostgreSQL, MySQL, Elasticsearch)
  • A degree in mathematics or computer science or a comparable qualification
  • Enthusiasm for architecture and distributed systems solutions
  • Strong analytical and critical thinking skills and a demonstrated ability to find creative solutions to (technical) problems
  • Fluent in English (don’t know German? no problem!)
  • (optional) Entry level experience with a PaaS/SaaS cloud, preferably AWS and Kubernetes

Additional preferred skills
