    Other info

    You will build and maintain the codebase that powers both our customer event streaming services as well as internal services. This is a role for engineers that are familiar with standard web backend architecture, event driven systems, and capable in database design and interaction. You will be working closely with the team in USA to understand the functional needs of their product requirements, developing new code to solve new problems, as well as maintaining existing code to squash bugs. Our Streaming platform is expanding rapidly with more mission critical services, so experience and commitment to easily understood and tested code is also a key part of the role.
