  • Empower teams to be autonomous and take full responsibility for their product.
  • Collaborate with Product Owners and different Stakeholders to combine different perspectives into a joint plan of action.
  • Contribute to large-scale projects that affect millions of daily users.

What you'll definitely need:

  • To be a skillful software engineer that has ideally worked in a large-scale and/or high-traffic environment before, with experience working with tasks for both Frontend and Backend development.
  • Good knowledge of object-oriented programming and systems development lifecycle.
  • A proficient understanding of RESTful API concepts.
  • To be a people person that is willing to put the good of the team first.
  • To have completed a degree in Computer Science or related field, or to have had equivalent work experience.

  • The freedom to embrace small-scale failures as a path to large-scale success.

  • Self-determined working hours based on measuring productivity through goals rather than number of hours spent in the office.
  • Being supported in all your needs, including relocation assistance and language classes for international arrivals.
  • The opportunity to develop personally and professionally with regular free code workshops and Hackathons, as well as the chance to contribute to our tech blog.
  • Living in Düsseldorf, a city boasting the 6th highest quality of life in the world for expats.
