Senior Back-End & Data Engineer

We’re looking for an experienced back-end & data engineer to help us build the next generation of exciting data-driven products.

Your primary focus will be on the development of business logic and the definition & setup of databases. You will also ensure high performance and responsiveness to requests from multiple applications.

You discover information hidden in vast amounts of data and help us make smarter decisions to deliver even better products. You enjoy statistical analyses and building recommendation systems.


You will be involved in all projects from concept to completion and have a decisive voice throughout the entire project. This includes analysing existing solutions and making recommendations for both the technical approach and the architecture.

Experimenting with libraries, solutions, and new data tools is second nature to you. A sufficient foundation of skills is required, but your drive and passion are your most important assets.
