Job title: Backend Developer
Type: employment contract
Exposure to particularly challenging problems and cutting edge technologies.
Above market salary.
Fun, dynamic environment.
Flexible working hours and location.
Private health insurance.
Our client is building the next generation cloud platform to power the production, post-production, distribution and monetization of video content, from the camera to the consumer eye.
The media industry has been slow to embrace the cloud because of the heavy duty transcoding and logistic workflows involving terabyte-scale media files. We work with Hollywood studios and post production houses, as well as the major cloud providers AWS, Azure and IBM to develop an innovative groundbreaking solution that enables the transition to the cloud and disrupt the industry.
If microservices, massive parallel architectures, distributed systems, image processing, AI, media editing tools are food for your soul, this is the place to be. Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the cloud is what we do.
The frontend clients are build with React and test automation with cypress.io.
The APIs are built with GraphQL.
The backend (micro)services are build with Typescript and node.js.
The data sits in Postgres, Redis and Elasticsearch.
You will use SQS and SWF to orchestrate the services.
You will run in Docker containers over Kubernetes auto scalable clusters (100s of nodes per cluster).
You will use Terraform and Helm for infrastructure set up and tear down and replication.
You will use CircleCI for the automated continuous integration process.
The code sits on Github and you will use Jira and Confluence to track work and documentation.
You have a passion for technology and solving difficult problems.
You understand data structures and algorithms and it’s your second nature to put yourself in the computer’s shoes.
You are intrigued by how things work and are always hungry to learn new things.
You are determined to grow and understand that the only way to do it is to step out of your comfort zone.
You are excited to work with brilliant people and to share great ideas.
You are fast.
You get the job done.
