We are looking for candidates with strong computer science background.
We are looking for candidates with 3+ (strong medium) or 5+ (senior) years of commercial experience.
We do look more at the “quality” (what projects they worked at) of these years, rather than the actual “quantity”. We are very careful with people who switch too often or don’t switch at all.
English is a working language and we require professional working proficiency from all candidates.
Tech skills. We are looking for backend developers with python as primary/preferable language and experience with modern python web frameworks.
Cloud (preferably GCP, but AWS would also work) and docker experience are required as well. The details of the stack are not yet finalised (currently we use python stack for our data pipelines, not for the web applications).
First project. The new team will start with building new version of our FLOW (Fast Logistics Operation Workbench) application. The current version is written in a technology that we don’t want to support going further and we’d like to move it to a python-based stack. This won’t be just a rewrite, but also an improvement over the existing functionality.
We estimate the project would take around
Tech we use
Python, PHP, MySQL
React, Redux, Node.js, RxJS
Google Cloud, Kubernetes, Spinnaker, CircleCI, Docker
Mendix (part of our Supply Chain stack but not your day-to-day)

You love the satisfaction that comes with knowing real people are benefiting from something you’ve created.
You are curious about business processes and interested in solving operational problems through technology.
You enjoy brainstorming with your colleagues to find the best trade-offs between quality, speed, and scope.
Among your technical colleagues, you are known for “leaving the campsite better than you found it” because you’re diligent about improving the codebase.
You are excited by the idea of working on a huge variety of projects, including balancing the demands of supporting daily operations, steadily improving the product, and making step-changes to the technical platform.
You value the shared working habits and processes that make for an effective team: writing good tests, giving and receiving code reviews, writing clear documentation, holding retrospectives, etc.
You are motivated by the opportunity to help shape our technical platform and engineering culture as we grow.
