Backend Software Engineer, Costa Rica, Full-Time
We're looking for software engineers of all experience levels, talented and motivated individuals to join our Fulfillment Team here at Backcountry.
People who can hit the ground running and help us take our distributed architecture to the next level, as we scale up and expand our fulfillment systems.
Our backend engineers, who are the ones building our entire Fulfillment Platform, work across the stack, always willing to go the extra mile to deliver the highest quality in enterprise software.
To serve our clients, you'll delve into subject matter every day, and you'll always be on the lookout for innovative ways to approach our software projects.
We're looking for curious, collaborative people who are eager to teach what they already know and who jump at any opportunity to dive into new territory.
Here's where you come in :
You'll join our experienced, cross-functional team in developing our distributed backend fulfillment systems. Our software is currently written mainly with Java, the Spring Framework, and Hibernate.
These are oversimplifications, though. You might have more interest in some of these technologies than others, but we're looking for people who want to make a well-
rounded, full-stack contributor to every part of our projects.
Since work is a huge part of your life, we want it to be interesting (new technologies, subject matter, and challenges) and fun (company outings, sports activities, catered lunches, etc).
Goats (as Backcountry employees call themselves) work hard, support each other, and walk away satisfied. We keep up with the latest technologies, tools, and tricks of the trade we're always refining our approach and everyone has a seat on the table.
As a developer for Backcountry, you’ll join a team of highly-skilled professionals, working on a collaborative DevOps environment where you will be building software that becomes the blood and veins of our core backend.
What you'll do
Bonus point if you know reactive programming.
