Job description

Tech stack:

  • Kotlin, Reactive programming, Spring, Kubernetes, Kafka, Maven, Gradle, Docker, MySQL, PostgreSQL
  • Some Java 11/apache thrift legacy that we are moving away from.
  • Productivity: Gitlab, Google Cloud, Grafana, Swagger, JIRA, Confluence, Slack


  • Fluent in any JVM-based language (Kotlin experience is not required)
  • Ability to write clean and testable code
  • Knowledge of how to handle eventual consistency in an event-driven environment
  • Proficiency in best practices and design patterns
  • Experience in working with microservices architecture


  • Working in the "Customer Experience Platform" team that is responsible for serving content to mobile apps, authentication, sending emails, marketing automation and whatever other APIs are needed for mobile apps
  • Help product managers deliver MVP functionality in the most reasonable ways, given that we are serving over 33 million unique users every month
  • Keep an eye on how we serve things to mobile clients and ensure the bill doesn't go wild - serving huge video/audio/image to that many users in a suboptimal way can lead to a huge impact
  • Be proactive in introducing best and modern industry practices every day
  • Writing software in Continuous Delivery way - so, all changes have to be fully covered by unit and integration tests

We offer:

  • Humble, hungry, and smart colleagues that are always striving for the most reasonable solutions
  • Very little technical debt - we write most of the software from scratch, constantly learning and using new technologies
  • Ability to learn from other colleagues and apply your ideas on a large scale, distributed systems. And an ability to deploy your changes to Production in less than 15 minutes
  • Startup culture - if you see that something is wrong, go ahead and fix it! No need to seek for multiple approvals
  • Latest hardware and software - laptop with your favorite OS (Mac, Linux, Windows), IntelliJ, keyboard/mouse of your choice, etc.
  • We are remote-first and we will continue to be - there is no need to go to the office but you can - you can choose what's best for you

We thank all the candidates who have shown interest in our company, but only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
