Lead Back End Software Engineer, Applied Intelligence

Engineering Berlin, Germany


Your Opportunity

We are looking for a Principal Software Engineer to join our augmented incident response engineering team in our Berlin office. Our mission is to optimize the observation, investigation, and resolution of production incidents and to continuously produce insights and improvements for the monitoring of complex production systems.

We are a team of interdisciplinary specialists. Our atmosphere is of a startup backed up by a successful corporation. The team is responsible for what we believe is the future of Applied Intelligence: assimilating huge amounts of data and AI’ing the heck out of it in order to help our customers solve problems quickly and efficiently. Our vision is to be able to fix some problems magically without waking up anyone. For a proud parent of an application, we want to be the most perfect Au Pair anyone can imagine!

Who You Are

Are a passionate collaborator that uses reason when enthusiastically communicating your opinions and listens to others’ approaches. You’re proactive, never taking the present state for granted and always striving to understand why things are done the way they are done. You’re a clean coder with readable, simple, and maintainable code.

You quickly grasp large & complex systems and their inner workings. You’re experienced with software engineering best practices (testing, code reviews, immutability, etc.). You’re deeply familiar with the tools, libraries, and frameworks that you’ve worked with and feel at home in production environments. Also, you are aware that you might receive many TikTok videos filled with cuteness from an overly engaged team member.

What You'll Do

  • Design, develop and test production-grade components within a micro-service architecture implemented mostly in Kotlin.
  • Collaborate with Engineers, Product Managers, designers, and other partners to frame problems within the business and product context.
  • Own engineering initiatives for multiple backend components and projects.
  • Contribute to the product technical design, architecture and implementation of our backend components

Your Qualifications

  • 5+ years of professional experience as a backend engineer in the industry
  • Expertise in Java, Kotlin, Scala, C#, Go or similar programming languages
  • Proven experience in designing, developing and (most importantly) testing scalable distributed systems
  • Experience working with both relational and non-relational databases
  • Understand and write concurrent code, specifically a web server's request lifecycle.
  • 15+ years of developing production-grade applications in a JVM based language
  • Have practiced TDD <3.
  • CS degree or a degree in a related field
  • Familiarity with message queuing systems & patterns (especially Kafka)
  • Experience working in teams that use CI/CD practices
  • Experience with Kubernetes and Docker
  • Experience with AWS/GCP

Qualified applicants may inquire about visa sponsorship. This position is to be filled as soon as possible.

Assistance with relocation to Berlin will be provided for excellent candidates.
