About the job

Job title: Senior Elixir Backend Developer (Remote)
Job description:
As key backend developer, you will be joining a small but growing international team of front-end software engineers, UX designers, data scientists and business experts with decades of experience in their respective fields. Working closely with your colleagues, you are responsible for the backend development of new and existing features for our talentbay platform with integrated testing and monitoring. If you are interested, you can also take on some DevOps responsibilities.

Our Environment:
With a DevOps-first mindset, all code we create is pushed automatically to staging and live environments after review. Hosted within a Kubernetes environment on Azure, our main application is written in Elixir (with Phoenix as a web framework), with a GraphQL API being accessed by both a cross-platform Mobile App written in React Native as well as a Web Application written in React. On top of that, we use Python for everything Data-Science related. The performance and status of our systems are monitored with Grafana, with Prometheus and Loki as data providers.

Processually, we are working with an agile, Kanban-based approach. Team-wide coordination and communication happens via Slack with bi-weekly standup calls and weekly review meetings for synchronization.

Position on remote work: All our devs work remotely, but the ideal location would be Poland or Germany

Qualifications or experience required:

  • Excellent skills in Software development with Elixir and Postgres databases
  • A proven track record in creating scalable, cloud-based systems
  • Experience working with Docker and preferably Kubernetes-based environments
  • Experience working with Azure or AWS infrastructure
  • You like working independently without close supervision
  • Fluent English, written and spoken, and preferably basic understanding of German

About the interview process
There will be an interview with our CTO and possibly our lead FE dev (to ensure team fit).
After that, a short get to know you call with one or two founders.
