Mobile.de is hiring! The Technology group is looking for a Senior Backend Engineer (m/f/d).

The Technology group at mobile.de works in small focused project teams following an agile methodology. Cross functional teams including product management, product development, and UX work on a daily basis to create successful products that have impact and delight our customers.

Our idea of software development:

We work in small, cross-functional teams (backend, frontend and QA engineers), because we believe that the teams want the freedom to take the responsibility for what they create and maintain. We work in the same room with our Product Owners, because we believe that in order to deliver world-class products for our customers, a constant discourse between the development team and the Product Owner is essential. We also cooperate closely with our SiteOps engineers, because we believe that successfully running a high-traffic, high-availability platform works best in a DevOps mindset. We believe in agile, lean, team-defined processes, because we think that, as far as processes are concerned, less is more.

  • You get up to speed with new systems and concepts quickly 
  • You are passionate for clean code, with an eye for simplicity and pragmatism
  • Experience with the relevant CI stack (maven, git, jenkins) and ideally with node/gradle
  • Experience with Message Queues: e.g. RabbitMQ, Kafka
  • Excellent knowledge of SQL and NoSQL (especially MySQL and mongodb)
  • You understand that quality is not assured solely by the QA engineer, but by the team 
  • You firmly believe in lean and agile development (Kanban / Scrum) 
  • You believe in cross-functional teams and know that responsibility does not end with deployment
