Your tasks

  • You are taking an innovative builder role in the architecture and server-side implementation of a highly demanding e-commerce platform based on microservices
  • In an interdisciplinary team with the ownership of your product, you are optimizing backend processes in a cloud-based infrastructure environment
  • You identify and define requirements, standards, and APIs and account for enterprise-wide integration of these
  • You assist in the implementation and validation of requirements for the improvements of programming style and architecture
  • You care for the migration path to modern architectures


  • You are a pure team player and love having freedom while being entrusted with responsibilities
  • You have serveral years of experience in backend engineering and were able to gain vast experience in architectures of complex systems
  • Object-oriented development and Java were too easy for you, that’s why you already gained deep knowledge in the inner workings of the JVM inside a Docker container with Spring (Boot) Web and/or any further web application frameworks
  • Domain-Driven Design and RESTful APIs were nothing for you but principles, so you built microservices, serverless architectures, and scalable distributed systems
  • A list of items made you too boring that you always looked for a search box and tried the search machine with Solr / ElasticSearch
  • Because you are interested in the whole lifecycle of an application, the practices of CICD and (Cloud-) infrastructure are very well known to you and you love applying these in microservices
