YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE
The ideal candidate has a passion for the latest development technologies and enjoys working in a start-up environment. A broad interest in back-end technologies and iOS and Android is highly appreciated.
As a senior backend Developer at BUX you'll be working in our very experienced team. The backend team is responsible for building and maintaining our robust, flexible and scalable platform. This platform consists of a multitude of services, including stock market trading, social activities and business intelligence (more than 10 different subsystems in total). Built on a reactive programming model it allows incredible flexibility and scaling.
Members of the team are challenged in various ways, be it in understanding the technical complexities of stock market trading, designing and programming a robust API for the mobile team or increasing the efficiency of the platform to deal with heavy concurrency. As BUX continues to grow, new challenges arise often for the backend team to tackle and motivate them. Developing at BUX means delivering systems, not software. This includes writing puppet scripts and deploying to our various environments. Together with the rest of the team you will be responsible for designing and
implementing new features on the BUX Platform. At BUX we include developers early on in the feature design process through workshops. We are looking for a Developer who understands the business and enjoys giving input to the product as well.
As we are a DevOps team we also have an on-call roster. There is a compensation scheme for when you are on-call.
Some examples of the technologies deployed today: Java8, Debian, Nginx, Tomcat, ElasticActors, Spring Framework, Jackson, Elasticsearch, MySQL, Cassandra, RabbitMQ, TheForeman, Puppet, RunDeck, github, TeamCity, artifactory
