  • Design, develop and test the APIs that enable a flexible and smooth checkout experience for each store our customers have around the world
  • Develop a scalable and multi-tenant architecture
  • Participate and contribute to the team’s roadmap, technical decisions and planning, both by producing quality proposals, giving meaningful feedback and driving alignment
  • Test software components regarding usability, functionality and performance, and work closely with Product Management
  • Taking part in on-call rotation (with the worldwide distributed team) for production systems

What you need to succeed:

  • At least 3 years of experience as a Backend Engineer developing server-side systems on the JVM using Scala
  • Firm understanding of functional programming
  • Solid understanding of parallel and asynchronous programming, as well as non-blocking I/O
  • Experience in developing REST APIs and knowledge of scalable architectures
