About us

About the job

From a technology perspective, we have thousands of devices with our own firmware installed in our customers’ retail stores around the world and an advanced server infrastructure to manage these devices and to process the terabytes of data that they are producing via machine learning algorithms. We offer a great opportunity for personal and professional growth in a multicultural environment. We work, learn and develop while having lots of fun on the way.

Join our team as a Backend Developer.

What we do all day:

Our main data processing architecture is designed to scale horizontally and with no single point of failure. We are processing multiple gigabytes of data per hour using different machine learning algorithms. We constantly experiment and try out new things, therefore we are looking for creative developers who are a source of ideas, who like to build new prototypes as well as viable products.

Why there are just a few required skills

We believe that being a good developer is not so much a question of skills, but more a question of mindset. If you are passionate like us, you love to learn, work and share knowledge with your team, you will be a good fit.

What we offer

How do we work?
