Full Time Work Remotely
  • Post Date: January 7, 2020
  • Apply Before: July 31, 2020
Job Description
We’re looking for a competent senior back end engineer to join our client’s team in Stellenbosch.

Our client builds the low-code app development platform for industrial companies, allowing their customers to make their field and office workers happier and more productive, even in tough working environments.

All of the developers on their team are comfortable with learning new technologies and tackling challenging and interesting technical problems (such as efficient two-way synchronization of large data sets between mobile devices and the cloud). They take pride on having a small team of world-class developers that work closely together and own their work, from conceptualisation to deploying to production.

You can expect to work with technologies such as NodeJS, Typescript, Kubernetes, MongoDB, Kafka and the AWS stack, and will also drive the adoption of applicable new technologies in the future. If you constantly obsess about building scalable systems, implementing best practice inter-service communication patterns, while working in a dynamic home-grown start-up that has customers from all around the world, this position is for you.

Our client’s Engineering Processes

“We have a strong culture of code reviews on all code, automated testing, automated deployments, and using consistent tooling across our projects. We always strive to reduce red tape and make you as effective as possible. We encourage engineering-driven experimentation as part of your work.”

Experience Required:

4+ years of experience as a developer writing production code and managing back end systems is essential.

Skills Required:

–        NoSQL

–        TypeScript

–        Kubernetes

–        Test Automation

–        Apache Kafka

–        MongoDB

–        Systems Design

–        Microservices

–        Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Expected Commencement Date

As soon as possible.
