Here are some of technologies we use and we have expertise with:

  • Languages: Java, Python, Groovy, JS, Typescript, PHP;

  • Exposure to web development with focus on backend services;

  • Decent understanding of Linux, software architecture and infrastructure concepts;

  • Experience with NoSql databases;

  • Ability to develop solution architecture designs and learn complex systems;

  • Willing for research and sharing the knowledge with the team;

  • Always eager to learn and keep a good ownership attitude;

  • Excellent problem solving skills and a proactive approach;

  • Always eager to learn new concepts, languages and frameworks which support our business products and not only.

Experience is great, but what we really look for is drive, intelligence, and integrity. So even if you don’t tick every box, please consider applying if you feel you’re the kind of person described above!
