What you will be doing

  • You implement back-end features to our platforms (web, app) and then don’t just say “Front end colleagues, now the ball is in your court” but show team spirit.
  • You write well-structured and tested code that scales easily.
  • You support your colleagues and let them benefit from your experience.

Examples from our everyday work:

  • You could ensure that our product search works even faster and more precisely, diving deep into Solr.
  • In cooperation with our IT department, you could integrate new, international payment methods. Ever heard of the Belfius Pay button? Neither have we.

What you offer

  • You have work experience as a back end developer, preferably in e-commerce.
  • You can work with current and proven web technologies: php (object-oriented) and MySQL. In addition, you are proficient in at least one other technology (preferably node.js, Go or Rust).
  • Coding is your passion and you are proud of what you have released at the end of the day (and yes, we always release as fast as we can, sometimes several times a day).
  • You want to excite hundreds of customers with your work and don't lose sight of the big picture.
  • For you, there is nothing better than passing on your knowledge and learnings and taking on responsibility.
  • You are self-reflective and like to get actively involved in professional discussions.
  • You would also like to work on projects other than back end related tasks. Ideally, you already have experience in the front end (e.g. JavaScript, React)

Our tech stack

  • Store back end: We have completed the migration to php 7.4 and are already looking forward to using php 8. We have full responsibility for our framework and follow established standards (e.g. PSR) during development.
  • Front end: As template engines we use React on the client side and Twig on the server side. We use “less” as our CSS preprocessor.
  • We build and transpile everything our front end needs via Webpack and Babel.
  • With Docker and Openshift we are heading for a container future and make the port of Hamburg look weak.
  • MySQL, Memcached & Solr provide our customers with reliable and fast data.
  • App: React Native and GraphQL.

What we offer

  • Fair salary and permanent employment
  • Flexible with working hours and location
  • Thomann discount for employees
  • Work equipment as requested
