Backend Software Developer
We are looking for a backend software developer to join our IT team. You will not only develop but will also probably collaborate in other technical areas such as operational support or system administration.
You are a generalist software developer who loves learning new things and facing new challenges but we also value if you have some deep experience about specific topics such as big data or optimization.
You will be working in our web app and/or optimization engine. Our current backend stack includes Ruby, Java and MySQL.
While most of our operations are run from our headquarters in sunny Madrid, we also have teams located in the main markets where we operate, currently Spain, Italy and Russia. English is the company language, but within the team we speak altogether some 16 languages (counting both those of humans and computers).
Several years of experience developing in one of the mainstream languages such as Java, Ruby, Python, C#, and in general any backend language which was designed in more than 15 days.
It is a plus if you don't care or even like to know what a NP-hard problem is and you enjoy algorithms, optimization, operations research and you're not afraid of maths.
Experience in SQL, relational or non-relational DB, data analysis, big data and machine learning is a plus.
Experience in sysadmin or devops is a plus.
Business-oriented. You acknowledge software is not the end but a means to get business value (but this doesn’t mean doing crappy code). You are willing to learn all business concepts and you try to understand the business motivation under the tasks you develop.
Self-motivated and self-organized. Good time-management and personal organizational skills are essential.
Good team member who likes to help but also keep focus to get things done.
Passion for technology and like to be continuously learning.
You are fluent in English (other languages, especially Spanish, are a plus) and are interested in working in an international company.
A highly innovative and fast-paced environment. As in any startup, expect to find a team with an interesting mix of business profiles (without the slides), IT geeks and late-night coders, data scientists, and as a fashion tech startup, a few fashion victims.
The satisfaction of delivering something new to the world that will have a strong impact both on retailers’ top line and in customer satisfaction. Contribute to the development of cutting-edge artificial intelligence & machine learning technologies that will build the next generation of retail systems.
The opportunity to work with top client decision-makers in the fashion retail industry and sharpen your business reasoning and interpersonal skills. Learn from peers from top consulting firms and the best global business schools.
Flexibility in remote work and office hours, use of some of the most advanced collaborative tools.
Periodic company get-togethers to meet the rest of the team.
Compensation that includes a fixed+variable salary as well as company equity as we progress towards our Series A and B fundraising rounds.
