  • You have the drive to becoming a skillful, experienced Software Engineer.

  • You have some experience using an object-oriented programming language such as Java or C#.
  • You have some experience in building and interfacing with REST APIs.

Our backend stack is mostly Java, but we are experimenting with many other languages and technologies. Here are some technologies we currently use:

  • Java
  • Spring Boot, VertX
  • JavaScript (Vue, React, Node.js)
  • REST, OpenAPI, OAuth, OpenID Connect
  • Docker, Kubernetes
  • AWS
  • AMQP/RabbitMQ
  • Git
  • PostgreSQL
  • Redis

We are working in a cloud-based architecture and are relying heavily on AWS, Kubernetes, and Docker containers. Our architecture is quite loosely coupled and as long as we do development fulfilling APIs (REST, AMQP mainly) and containerize them as services in docker containers, we have really decent flexibility in the implementation details.

Our Offer:

We emphasize having a great working environment and offer the following to our employees:

  • A competitive wage and engaging work where quality is king!
  • International, hybrid working environment
  • Dedicated and experienced co-workers eager to share their knowledge (and workload!) with new members of the team
  • Modern office space with high-quality equipment and cafeteria with a diverse healthy daily lunch
  • A well-stocked kitchen and fridge
  • Social activities organized by the humbly named, and well-funded, BEST staff association
  • Events that encourage innovation such as internal hackathons
  • Opportunities to attend conferences and community events, both as participants and contributors
  • Professional development support
  • Profit sharing program
