For our client, a trading platform from the USA, we are in need of a senior Backend Developer. This company provides cutting-edge technology where trades are protected with cryptography in order to protect your trade from short-sellers. Our client recently opened an office in Amsterdam and it is expanding its team here. The CTO of this company already made two unicorn exits and it is the overall expectation that this will be number three!
We don’t really care whether you know Go, Python, Java, Elixir, or who-knows-what. We fundamentally believe that if you are smart and you are eager to learn, you’ll develop the skills to do your job, which may include learning a new programming language. Our stack currently consists for the most parts of Go, and some parts Java. We run our systems in Kubernetes, and the front-end is built with Vue.js.)
While we would love for you to have a Master’s or Ph.D. in computer science, we equally respect self-taught engineers. We would like you to have had 5-10+ years of experience, ideally in a startup that experienced rapid growth and supported a large user base. However, highly motivated juniors that support their own widely adopted product or open-source library should feel free to apply.
We are building systems that run in environments with very little tolerance for error, so you’d do well with a perfectionist streak, but not to an impractical extent. Perfect is the enemy of good.
