Job description

Our Senior Backend Engineer positions require true 'Engineers' with Product based mindsets. You will be joining a team of Engineers who come from backgrounds in solving complex software engineering challenges, accustomed to working in a proactive manner, identifying areas for improvement and implementing these effectively.

The role will require you to utilise your knowledge of best-practice software development principles where you can design, develop and implement new features for our SaaS platform, whilst making our product even more scalable and awesome.

Ideal candidates will demonstrate a core Engineering background with C based languages (think Java, C++, Scala, Python, Go etc), who have recent Node.js experience and are looking to further their career in a forward-thinking Product environment.

As a Senior Engineer, you will have the opportunity to mentor more junior members of the team, inspiring and advocating bar-raising quality of code whilst being hands-on yourself.

The team works in sprints where goals are always a combination of product roadmap features and your team's own technology input. That way we make sure we always keep our technology modern and our product on track!

Your main responsibilities:
* Building new features and technological innovations in our Node.js back-end as part of one of our Development Teams
* Understand and help define our platform's architecture together with the team
* Challenge our product and team members to continuously develop themselves and our product, * Have Node.js Development experience - essential (more than connecting an API!)
