  • A team-player; you are comfortable working with different styles and believe (like us) that together we achieve much more than alone
  • Driven; you are used to working hard to achieve a goal you care about and running several projects in parallel
  • A great communicator; you are comfortable in communicating in English both written and oral, including leading meetings, selling your ideas and storytelling

 

You have: 

  • A BSc or MSc in Computer Science or related technical discipline
  • At least 3 years of Scala work experience
  • Experience with relational database systems such as PostgreSQL
  • Familiarity with Akka Stream, Akka HTTP or Flink
  • Experience with Git
  • Working knowledge with Linux/Unix


We’d be extra impressed if you also have:

  • Experience with AWS / key-value databases such as Cassandra / data-mining / machine learning / search frameworks such as Lucene / e-commerce platforms
  • Dev-ops skills
  • Experience in working in/with remote teams
  • Experience in working in agile/lean methodologies
  • A side project or blog that showcases your passion


Location: remote. Flexible within timezone CET +/-2


We believe that the more inclusive we are, the better products we build and the better we are able to serve our customers. Women and other minorities under-represented in tech are strongly encouraged to apply.

Why work with us?

At Findify you get to work with amazing and passionate colleagues on some truly awesome technology. What’s not to love? We also offer you a chance to be challenged, make an impact, work flexibly, be part of a team and all this in an international work environment.

  • Challenge

    Working with the kind of advanced AI/ML technology that we do means there is always a cool challenge waiting to be solved. We have developed one of the most advanced AI algorithms in e-commerce in the market, and we love to think creatively on ways to make it even better.

  • Impact

    Although we are constantly growing, we still act like a small company where everyone’s voice is heard, and where if you have a cool idea you can implement it by tomorrow. Whether you’re working on our product, sales or communication, you’ll have a chance to make a difference from day one.

  • Flexibility

    Whether you are a parent or a semi-professional skier (we have both on the team), we believe that work should fit into your life and leave energy for the things you love. We offer flexible work arrangements in both time and place to help our employees manage this.

  • Team feeling

    We are a diverse team with a variety of nationalities, perspectives, and skills. We truly like working with each other and we have lots of fun together. We try to meet each other at least twice a year for an international off-site.

The Findify culture

We are a team of passionate individuals working together for the same goal – to build the next generation of personalization AI in e-commerce. Even though we’re not a start-up anymore, it’s really important to us to preserve that part of our culture – the part where everyone’s contribution makes an impact on the final result, where we are all accountable and where we work creatively and collaboratively to solve whatever problem comes up. Most importantly, as we grow, it’s important us to maintain our high levels of energy, passion and drive.
