Launched in 2012, Koding, a fast-growing startup (with over a million users), is seeking a Senior Backend Engineer. In this role, you will be implementing available, resilient and highly performant services used by millions of people. You will make key technical decisions and design choices, as well as writing amazing code, and you’ll provide advice and support to other engineers. If you’re a smart, motivated developer with 4 – 6 years of proven, hands-on experience with the back-end of large-scale web applications, you might just be the key person we’re looking for. This role is as technically demanding as it gets; if you're interested in tackling a real challenge, this is the job for you.
You will collaborate to help specify, design, and develop software meeting company and product requirements, with lead responsibility for different areas of the architecture. You'll also be responsible for communicating with senior leadership around these areas and projects.
