We are looking for a mid-level Backend Software Engineer to help Meltwater build the next-generation content ingestion platform. Content (Meltwater's Content & Ingestion division) is a team of 20+ engineers, product owners, and agile coaches across the world. You will join a team focused on editorial & social content ingestion from external content providers, thus providing our customers with the highest quality, most relevant, and timely content possible. We are located mainly in Berlin but we also offer flexible work from home policy.
About the team
You will join a very dynamic and diverse mix of software engineers coming from various parts of the world! We enjoy our Friday lunch visits to the local Indian restaurant as well as arguing over where to find the best craft beer. We have family people, single people, people who drink coffee in the morning but Mate tea in the afternoons (and others that will continue with coffee until late evening), table tennis lovers, gamers, and more.
What we love to do
The solutions we build entail microservices powered by Docker, Drone, Postgresql, Kafka, RabbitMQ, and Lambdas. The languages we like to apply range from Golang, Java, Python to Node.js. Our applications are deployed in the AWS cloud with Kubernetes being our favorite deployment target. We take great pride in making data-driven decisions and the DevOps mindset and skills that allow us to manage all of these resources as a team.
