Role overview

About the job:

For our highly-skilled development team in Berlin we seek a versatile and self-motivated Senior Software Engineer (Scala) with the passion for Scala and distributed systems knowledge (distributed logs) as well as a thorough understanding of software engineering. The team in Berlin stands for the development and deployment of the company's next generation technology in close collaboration with the company's other departments in New York, Copenhagen and Moscow.

Our team in Berlin consists of a few hand-picked veterans from the start-up environment. Both the level of competence and focus is very high. For that reason, many exciting tasks are constantly flowing from the rest of the organization to Berlin, so we want to expand the team with more skilled and innovative talents. We are currently looking for senior software engineers, but if you are a recent graduate with special skills we would also like to hear from you.

Our technology stack runs on a Linux foundation and includes Scala, Akka, Node.js, DynamoDB, and PostgreSQL on AWS. 

The Position:

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer for LiveIntent Berlin, who likes solving problems, complex or simple, and who appreciate sharing ideas and providing solutions for those with clean and understandable code. You are largely able to plan, choose and organize your own tasks, but you are expected to work closely with the other team developers and stakeholders in the company's international product division. You will be part of all stages of development, from initial sparring and exchange of ideas to prototyping, development, testing, deployment, maintenance / improvement and reporting, but with the expected focus on the first three parts.

Your Profile:

You probably have a couple of years of experience with Scala software development from other positions. You are interested in translating real world issues into high quality, easy maintainable and understandable code. You are skilled in programming and fluent in several languages and curious about new technologies.

You have several years of practical experience with real programming and software design and have practical experience, or a deep desire to learn more or can recognize yourself in the some of the following

  • Passionate about solving complex problems in running scalable, highly available, high volume real-time systems
  • Deep understanding of modern programming languages such as Scala, Java and Python
  • Curios about technology and builds projects on the side just to try new stuff out
  • Experience with designing, building, and maintaining elegant, scalable software solutions
  • Dedicated to driving results while maintaining high software quality

You approach problems analytically and come up with solutions pragmatically. You are full of good ideas, able to see opportunities and weaknesses in other people's ideas, and can come up with your own ideas in a constructive way. You love having many issues on your mind and connecting them with the overall purpose. You are happy to implement and optimize and you are curious about new tasks.

You want to understand and involve yourself in the company's problem area and can communicate in English with management and colleagues at the other LiveIntent offices. You thrive in a dynamic environment where overall priorities and definitions will change over time, and therefore tasks will not always be prioritized. You can hand over tasks, but prefer to follow them to the door itself. You work independently.

What we Offer:

We believe in freedom and flexibility under responsibility. So the office hours can be adjusted, to a relatively large extent, to your life. If you need to work at home one day, it's OK as long as you deliver on your obligations. Likewise, you have free choice of work machine (Linux, Mac, Windows) and developer tools, but you are expected to be able to debug and maintain them yourself. If you want to introduce a new technology in our stack, it's OK, as long as you can defend your choice.

We are an international company, with lots of contact between the departments, so it's an opportunity to move your career to Copenhagen or New York later. Formally, the position is a standard position of 37 hours in the office close to located in Mitte/Prenzlauer Berg. The position is open and available as soon as possible.

Location

Berlin is the capital and the largest city in Germany and well-known for its amazing festivals, exciting nightlife and a high quality of living. With a population of 3.7 million it is only second to London in the Europe Union, even with one-third of the city's area being composed of forests, parks, gardens, rivers, canals and lakes. Berlin is a city with a deep history, Bismarck, Marx, Einstein, JFK and Bowie, they’ve all shaped – and been shaped by – Berlin.

Often referred to as Europe's newest start-up capital, a new start-up is founded every 20 minutes. The startup industry is set to produce 100,000 new jobs by 2020.

It's no secret that Berlin is cheaper than many of its European counterparts. Office overheads and the price of living are cheaper, which makes it a very attractive place for tech entrepreneurs. Home to HelloFresh, Delivery Hero, and Soundcloud we expect many more household names to be coming out of Berlin in the next few years.
