Lead Backend Developer - Stockholm, Sweden - Permanent opportunity
I am currently working with a Productivity-as-a-Service (PaaS) that are looking to add an exceptional Lead Backend Developer to their team in Stockholm on a permanent basis.
My client is on a mission to transform the world, specifically the workplace. By creating, developing, and distributing a platform that addresses every company's software and hardware management pain points, with a primary focus on the employees.
As a Tech Lead, you will collaborate closely with both Front End and Back End engineers on the API and platform's fundamental functions.
* Collaborate with a team of engineers to construct the Ruby on Rails backbone of our platform.
* Improve the platform's architecture, as well as the platform's general processes and procedures, by conceiving and implementing enhancements.
* Work with and learn together with an international team while shipping software.
* Perform code reviews and other duties to support their platform's general quality and stability.
Who you are:
They look for people who are enthusiastic about their work, have a can-do attitude, a lot of energy, and a strong entrepreneurial drive. Together, they will create a team that is driven not only by profit, but also by a sense of purpose, a sense that the work matters.
You're a determined and inquisitive individual who wants to make a difference on a global scale and is committed to something bigger than yourself. You're a standout team player who thrives on a high amount of flexibility and autonomy.
You're used to working at a fast pace, often with responsibilities that go far beyond your job description and necessitate delving into the specifics to assure success. Slowing down and thoroughly thinking about a problem is sometimes all that is required. You must be able to determine when to do one or the other.
TDD/BDD (or other test-driven approaches) are used by their Back End developers to create stable, well-thought-out, and well-tested software. They work together to solve challenges, solicit feedback from their peers, and reciprocate the favour.
Overall, you will play a big part in constructing the system(s) that make up their core platform with the help of their Front End and mobile developers.
*6+ years of Ruby on Rails.
*Experience a relational database, they use PostgreSQL heavily.
*Building scalable systems.
*Test heavy development methods (TDD, BDD etc).
*Fluency in English, written and spoken.
Nice to have skills:
*Infrastructure and architecture experience
