Backend Engineer @e-commerce platform

Job description

See you @ e-commerce team

Who are we?

Not a software-house for sure, not a product company either. We try to take the best from both of these approaches. We build deep, long-last relationships based on mutual trust. Our clients have insight into the smallest details of our work and direct communication channels create a feeling of sitting next to the team. We foster a spirit of collaboration and try to work as one team with one goal.

We are a goal-oriented, highly specialized group of engineers developing product for one of Poland's biggest e-commerce company.

On job boards, you can often see that having an influence is advertised as a benefit. Well, we think that this is a good start. For us, your impact is actually desirable and required. We believe that mutual and honest feedback will allow us to build a better team, better product and is a great opportunity for personal growth.

We work, succeed and fail as a team. We are eager to help each other in difficult moments. In terms of teamwork, let's talk about another, often mentioned perk - code review. Of course, we also do it on a daily basis, but again this is only a starting point. We often work collectively on a matter with such tools as pair-programming or Event Storming. In such conditions, obligatory code review becomes redundant, it's just a tool.

We foster a culture of learning and experimentation. You will be able to validate your ideas on the production from day one. Do you think that tuning that query will reduce page load time by 50%? Or maybe changing the placement of that button will boost product conversion rates vastly? No problem, let's check and measure that!

Of course, everyone makes bad calls sometimes. This is natural and there is nothing wrong with that. The worst thing would be not learning those lessons and keeping that knowledge for yourself.

What do we do?

We are giving millions of Poles the ability to buy and sell a vast variety of things. From a pencil to a car, from common, everyday items to real rare aves. Lightweight and convenient process, tailor-made for casual sellers, safety built-in the product DNA and competitive prices - these are key attributes that describe our approach.

We want to redefine customer experience and be the largest C2C marketplace in Poland.

Can we count on you?


You would be the ideal fit for our team if you:

  • Have knowledge of Elixir and OTP (or experience in a similar language like Ruby, Python, Go, JavaScript etc.),

  • Understand the principles, practices and patterns of building maintainable and scalable web applications,

  • Have basic knowledge of some DevOps skills (Docker, Kubernetes),

  • Are willing to share knowledge on a daily basis and mentor other people,

  • Display great work habits,

  • Have strong communication skills,

  • Are attentive to details,

  • Are willing to constantly learn and improve your "soft" and technical skills,

  • Are communicative in written and spoken Polish and English,

  • Have experience with GraphQL,

  • Have experience with mobile clients (good to have),

  • Have experience in an e-commerce project (good to have)

How you will make an impact as a Member of our Team?

  • You'll collaborate with a team of product managers, designers, QA, data analysts and other developers to develop backend in the Elixir language,

  • You'll be included in decision-making and will weigh in on balancing factors like scope, complexity, and timing,

  • You'll architect your code in a way that encourages and allows for flexible, modular, and reusable code,

  • You'll encourage growth within the team by participating in mentorship, knowledge sharing, and thorough code reviews,

  • You'll help keep our apps robust by writing tests, monitoring, reporting, and troubleshooting bugs,

  • You'll make sure your decisions and statuses are well propagated over the whole Product Family to make sure everyone is on the same page.

Our recruitment idea

We have projects from different sectors, using a variety of technology stacks, startup or enterprise environments, and in different phases of the product life cycle which require different skills and levels of experience from candidates. You can switch teams, but by mutual agreement between you and your leaders - it's all about discussion. This means that you won't be thrown into "projects” for a week and switch between them weekly, which sometimes happens in traditional software houses. Instead, you can plan your career path with us, since when you want to switch your technology, sector, team, or position, we will support you. Moreover, even after you switch, we can still support your career growth because we will know your story, needs, and expectations. You can apply for a position that seems interesting to you and in which you meet the requirements, then we will help you find the best fit during the recruitment process. We will help you decide on an open position which matches your background and experience during the walkthrough.
