Backend Engineer (d/f/m)

Product Service - full-time - Munich

We are looking for an experienced Java or Scala developer who wants to make a difference. We’re a fashion company but you don’t have to wear the latest Karl Lagerfeld. A hoodie or your favorite Docker shirt will do just fine. You don’t speak German? No big deal, we use English as our main language. 

Your Responsibilities

  • Help us building and monitoring our highly scalable architecture to support Stylight’s growth. We take pride in building a highly performant and failure resistant platform with a small team.

  • Foster technical excellence in the team. Bring your best practices, challenge the status quo and set things in motion.

  • Enjoy what you do, and be willing to teach and learn new technologies.

Our Tech Stack

  • Our main API is written in Scala using the Finatra framework, some of our services are written in Python.

  • We run our systems on Amazon Web Services (EC2, DynamoDB, Lambda…) and the Google Cloud (BigQuery).

  • We use Docker and CircleCI to deploy Kubernetes and connect to Elastic and relational databases.

Your Profile

  • You are proficient in Scala or Java. You have tried different frameworks and also other programming languages.

  • You have a “You build it, you run it”-mentality. AWS, Docker and other DevOps technologies is a plus.

  • You can recompile your Linux kernel blindfolded. J/k. But it still would be nice if you can grep logs and script your way out of repetitiveness (be it in Python or else).

  • If you have experience in processing large amounts of user data, that’s a plus.

  • You don’t test in production like Chuck Norris. You have experience in Agile environments. 

  • You have an appreciation for working in a diverse and interdisciplinary environment.

Your Team

  • The Product Service Team consists of data scientists and backend engineers to find and show the most relevant products to our users with low latency.

  • We do work in 2 weeks sprints, visualize our tasks on analog boards, and do pair-programming to foster knowledge sharing.

  • We <3 Slack. We have our own bot and have integrated our toolchain (CircleCI, Datadog, PagerDuty…).

  • We are not afraid to build new things. Products Service consistently gets recognitions at internal hackathons. 

Why join Stylight?

  • Stylight is #1 Meetup organizer in Munich, and deeply involved in the local tech community. 

  • Together with Bits & Pretzels, we host, an annual developer conference with top-notch speakers and over 800 attendees.

  • International & highly motivated environment with open business culture in all departments. Our company language is English.

  • Hands-on work after quick ramp up & openness to new solutions and improvements.

  • A personal development budget is given to you to use throughout the year for personal growth.

  • We are family-friendly and enjoy spending time with one another outside of working hours from board game evenings and BBQs to ping pong tournaments and Christmas tree decorating.
