Back-end Developer

Job description

Prefer well-structured APIs and scalable architectures over legacy code?

So do we! As a strategic partner, developing new digital products for our clients, we have the chance to lay the groundwork for rock-solid applications, and ensure that the stack is both agile and robust. We create re-usable packages, that we open-source and use ourselves to speed up delivery everything from quick prototypes to production quality systems.

You will be working closely together with our awesome developer, design and strategy teams from Montreal, Copenhagen and Oslo.

As a team we have a growth mindset, for ourselves and clients. We are looking for a bright and ambitious back-end developer, who has a genuine interest in creating new digital business models, by providing the technical foundation necessary both for proof-of-concept and scaling. Designing APIs and developing architectures will be equally important to writing neat and well-tested code. That is why we need you to have a good overview and a good intuition for business requirements and strategy.

If you see a match between your competences and the ambitions we describe, you can easily apply by submitting your LinkedIn and/or GitHub and a brief motivation.

Applications will be closed with two days notice (on this page), as soon as we have a suitable selection of candidates.
