Backend Developer

Prague, Czech Republic

Avocode is an Electron-based app (written in React.js and Node.js), but all of our production server infrastructure is hosted in the cloud in Kubernetes clusters with most of the core backend services written in Python. Basically it's a complex multi-layer platform for processing many design formats. Everything in these clusters is modeled in code using Helm. In our new AWS environments, all of the cloud infrastructure (the Kubernetes cluster itself, database, etc.) is modeled using Terraform.

What do we need help with?

One of the core goals of the backend team is to ensure availability and reliability in our production environments. Our product is useless if the infrastructure behind it is offline or unreliable. Keeping these systems online and running fast is critical for the success of Avocode as a company.

Aside from availability and reliability, the backend team works together with product teams to develop and launch new features and products. They also work on behind-the-scenes projects that improve monitoring, security, developer velocity, and performance.

Clearly, we have a lot on our plate, that's why this is a full-time position. We are remote-friendly, yet we would like you to come to the office once or twice a month for our Pizza Thursdays.

What skills do you need to have?

  • Experience with web frameworks such as Django, Flask etc.
  • Good understanding of technologies such as NGINX, databases (relational and key-value) and messaging systems (like RabbitMQ)
  • Experience building out RESTful APIs for front-end clients to consume
  • Familiarity with modern DevOps tools such as Docker, Terraform, Kubernetes, etc.
  • Experience with incident management and supporting production systems
  • Background in Linux administration
  • Excellent communication and documentation skills in English

Nice to have:

  • Experience with and understanding of cloud-based infrastructure, such as AWS, GCP, or Azure
  • Experience with systems for automating deployment, scaling and management of containerised applications, such as Kubernetes

What’s in it for you?

This goes without saying:

  • Opportunity to work for an internationally established startup with a team of great professionals
  • Working on a cutting-edge product that addresses key issues of designers, like hand-off or design version control
  • Competitive salary
