Back-end Engineer for Setapp Core


Необходимые навыки

We are looking for an experienced and proactive Back-End Developer to join our Setapp Core team.

Setapp is a web+desktop service which lets the user get unlimited access to the library of applications right on their Mac. For a subscription fee, it gives you the opportunity to use all these quality apps you’ve always wanted to try out — without the need to buy and install each app individually.

Currently, we are expanding Setapp Core Team, that is responsible for 2 main directions. The first is a billing system for users, vendors and making payments. The second direction is the general backend infrastructure of Setapp.

You will join the team of 7 members — PO, 3 back-end engineers of the similar stack, 1 desktop developer and QA automation engineer and team coach.

We expect our future colleague to have a strong technical background. Someone with an architectural background, an experience of interaction with the Ops team and who’s not afraid to take responsibility. Our ideal candidate likes refactoring and understands why it is needed.


All work in a team goes over the internal systems and libraries, so there isn’t any frontend. At the same time, there are lots of communications and connections with the developers of other teams. There are also many tasks to recycle old parts of the code and improving existing functionality (for example: generating binary delta updates for applications). Your main responsibilities will be:
— Setapp core development: backend services ecosystem support, billing, payments processing, shared tools, etc
— Create and assist in a new Setapp features development
— Optimize the platform to make it faster and more efficient
— Improve the existing product, communicate with operations engineers, technical support to resolve code issues
— Take an active part in the technical development of the product by proposing ideas and improvements (like building the system to defend our services from DDOS-attacks, system for internal events processing


— Strong knowledge of OOP, Design Patterns, understanding of SOLID principles and their usage
— At least 5 years of development experience with PHP
— Experience with one of RDBMS (PostgreSQL as a plus)
— Experience with Linux as an advanced user
— Experience with message queues (RabbitMQ)
— Be self-organized and detail-oriented

As a Plus

— Experience with cloud computing (AWS), containers (Docker)


We offer excellent benefits, including but not limited to:
— Outstanding people

— Сare about your health (insurance, office gym, paid sick leaves, etc.)
— Work-rest balance support (meditation/sleeping room, 20 vacation days, etc.)
— UX driven office, equipment of your choice
— English courses
— 2 anti-stress cats
