  • Consider yourself one of the best at what you do and you're looking for equally talented colleagues.
  • Are self-driven and would never just want to take the next ticket.
  • Are curious and never stop learning and exploring new languages, technologies, and solutions.
  • Seek a culture where all voices matter when it comes to shaping the future of the product.
  • Want to work with colleagues who have a ‘here to help’ attitude, and absolutely want to set you up for success.
  • Be part of an international team that continuously challenges the status quo.

What you bring with you

  • Experience designing and building robust, high-volume production systems.
  • 4+ years of relevant experience.
  • Experience with scalable microservice architecture.
  • Experience with dynamically typed systems (e.g. Javascript/Typescript or Python).
  • Proven experience building APIs or similar, with a strong understanding of API development, integration patterns, and web technologies.
  • Experience working with RESTful APIs and familiarity with API authentication mechanisms (OAuth, JWT, etc.).
  • Extensive knowledge of Unix/Linux.
  • Experience with relational databases (MySQL, Postgres, etc.).
  • Experience with identity governance and administration.
  • Excellent communication skills in English.

Other Things You Should Know

  • We're currently working on becoming a transformation engine for the content uploaded to Issuu, machine learning for a better understanding of our content, our famous reading experience, and expanding our partner ecosystem to mention a few examples.
  • We currently use Python, Rust, Typescript, Javascript, and/or technologies that we track on our tech radar.
  • Our architecture is based on microservices and is event-oriented using AMQP.
  • We deploy on AWS multiple times daily and use Kubernetes, MySQL/Postgresql, Redis, Node, etc.
  • We strive to be agile (who doesn’t?), but we're not religious about Scrum, Kanban, or any other methodology.
  • We share knowledge, coordinate efforts, and help each other the best we can.

What You Will Get

  • A competitive compensation package.
  • Flat structure – every opinion matters regardless of team or position.
  • Mentorship from more senior people.
  • Flexible working hours.
  • The opportunity to contribute to Open Source.
  • Great company events that bring everyone together.
