As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will share responsibility for software design, implementation, architecture and the implementation of unit and integration tests in the Digital Publishing & Development department, where the new CMS is being developed. Your responsibilities
Your main activity as a Senior Backend Engineer will be to implement new features using Spring-Boot (Java), RabbitMQ, SQL databases and Elastic Search.
You will also support the team in the writing of unit tests (with jUnit, Mockito, etc.) and integration tests (using Cucumber).
In addition, the DevOps team is always pleased to receive advice on topics related to CI / CD processes. Your profile
You should enjoy working with less experienced engineers and sharing your knowledge with them. You should have many years of experience and be enthusiastic about backend engineering (university education is a plus, but not essential).
You should have several years' experience working with Spring and JPA (Hibernate). Experience with GIT, Docker and Kubernetes is an advantage but not essential.
We are keen to hear from you if you are also able to communicate with colleagues from Belgrade in English (even if through just basic communication).
What we offer
As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will control how our journalists deliver news to millions of users. Our team works with micro-
services and messaging concepts; you can also expect clean code and clean unit tests with us. There are over 300 other software engineers within Tamedia, meaning you will be able to access a large knowledge base and learn a great deal from your colleagues, whether that's in connection with an integration project with AWS, or the best table-
tennis strategy. In addition to a central location in Zurich, we also offer excellent social benefits and a team that stays on trend and last but not least, you can even take your dog to the office.
