Do you consider yourself an awesome backend software engineer? Are you looking for new challenges? Do you look for a workplace that cultivates an open mindset? Do you want to grow professionally and expand your career horizons?
At Webfleet Solutions we are looking for people like you. People who want to grow and stretch their limits. People with a "get things done and real" mindset. People who like to take responsibility.
Be part of a real agile team where decisions are taken by the team members (there is truly very little micro-management here). Decide how to get more and more efficient and effective together with your team. Collaborate with them to complete the development lifecycle of a new revolutionary feature and bring it to production. Celebrate the successes together and enjoy some drinks after work.
Get involved into the world of continuous delivery by using tools like Jenkins. Improve your development skills by resolving tough challenges. Get and give code reviews in BitBucket and check your code’s sanity using SonarQube, LINT. Take control of the evolution of your applications by using JIRA and its capabilities for development planning and project management. Stay alert to your application's health by using logs and metrics, ELK and Grafana.
Our next step is evolving product operations. The platform infrastructure will be to move towards CaaS (Container as a Service), based on K8s, and to establish a DevOps model. If you like to take your first steps with cloud technologies or can already bring some experience with containers, pipelines and public or private cloud operations to the table then that will be a great fit. If you are eager to learn, that will also be fine. At Webfleet Solutions we have started the migration to cloud infrastructure. There is a lot to do, a lot to learn and a big topic to contribute to. Join our cloud professionals and shape the future of the platform operations and infrastructure.Need some more detail about your day-to-day?

have a clear overview of all layers in computer software development, including REST APIs and how to make and integrate them in our products
have Java server-side development and SQL and noSQL database knowledge
are open to pick-up innovative technologies as needed by the team.
have or want to build experience with cloud and DevOps infrastructure (like Kubernetes, Docker, Terraform, Concourse, etc.)
speak English fluently.
As a successful candidate, you will join an international team of technically highly skilled and engaged engineers. They went through the same selection process as you did, so you can expect to join a high-caliber team.
You will embark on an adventure in product engineering within a growing and changing business. Our product and engineering teams are based in five different European locations, and our standard business language is English.
You will (have to) learn a lot about our business, our technology stack, and the service platform. You will learn from the formal training we provide for new joiners, your co-workers, and from our documentation and wiki. If your needs are more around general technical skills training, you will be able to participate in training courses according to need.
Our engineering culture is built upon the values of the agile manifesto. We strive to enable our teams to become highly productive and autonomous and empower individuals to become their own best selves.
For us, engineering has a lot to do with ingenuity. We see engineers as creative problem solvers who enjoy going full-cycle: from problem definition through problem-solving and implementation to solution validation and delivery to users.
We value attitudes as proactive problem solving, open-mindedness, a good balance of long-term and short-term thinking, friendly professionalism, walking the talk, taking ownership, and leading your topic or domain.
We value steady professionals who are looking to build their careers with us. We prefer to develop and promote our leaders from within, creating various opportunities for professional development and career advancement. We provide a technical and a more organizational career track and opportunities to try both if you are not sure.
Expect projects and topics you work on to change fast at times. Expect to be fully responsible for your work and products. This includes all functional and non-functional aspects. Our product engineering teams perform necessary maintenance and technology upgrades for their products and components and are expected to contribute to our scalability and technology roadmap.
