The Role ...
Our Developers know their stuff – they're busy working independently and setting high standards.
As an Associate Backend Engineer, you are part of an agile Software Development Team, responsible for the full lifecycle of an application using cutting-edge technologies to deliver amazing value to our customers, while scaling our platform to meet the demands of worldwide markets. We expect you to work independently on a variety of tasks and see them through to completion, but worry not, you will have a solid team to back you up with some guidance.
To become one of us you should have...
Our product's backend runs in Java , so a proven track record of at least 1 years working with this technology (preferably Java 8+) would be ideal - but... If you have experience working with similar OOP languages, that is not a problem as the underlying concepts are similar - just know that if you join us you'll be working with Java.
Our teams also work with technologies such as Scala, Kafka, Akka, Memcached, Apache Storm, Apache Cassandra, Zookeeper, RabbitMQ , and some others... Ideally, you should have heard about some of these but if not, don't worry - we will have your back!
Apart from this, there are some things we hope you already have, such as:
Basic knowledge of performance optimization;
Being able to implement various types of tests to their own code, like unit, component and integration tests;
Knowledge of common modeling approaches – you'll be capable of overcoming simple challenges;
Grasp reusability techniques (e.g. design patterns, library extraction, new component creation) and identify some of the appropriate usages.
As an Associate Backend Developer at Blip, it's mostly about your potential to grow with us and drive to learn - it's not just about the technical knowledge. For this we value (a lot) a strong set of soft skills - being a team player and promoting a healthy environment within your team is key. We'll also be expecting excellent communication (in Portuguese and English), common sense, and a passion for the art of problem-solving.
If you read this far and think that this is you, we can't wait to meet you!
