Backend engineering at store2be

Our 10-strong platform team consists of product managers, designers, a QA engineer, as well as frontend, backend and full stack developers, all with a diverse international background. You will join our platform team to support the backend team as a senior engineer. This means you will work on our different backend apps and provide guidance for the rest of the backend team. We are still a relatively small team so you will have the opportunity to shape where we are going technologically and how we work.

We develop in cycles (the folks from Basecamp have a great writeup about it):
