Backend / API Developer

We are currently looking for a Backend API Developer for our Ruby on Rails server that is hosted on Heroku. Our backend is serving up to 1500 requests per minute. And we expect even bigger numbers in the near future. There are lots of features that we want to add, but we also want to make sure to have everything prepared for the steady increase in usage.

As a Backend API Developer, you'll work closely with the rest of the development team. Our Smart Trainer Team (C++ App) as well as the Frontend Team (NodeJS/AngularJS WebApp) are highly dependent on the backend API. It is extremely important to be in close contact with them to make sure the API remains stable and is operating perfectly.

Role

  • You'll take responsibility in one of the most critical areas of the product: ensuring that the API is incredibly fast and reliable (which is the first step in making sure that all Smart Trainer users are getting the perfect experience).
  • Most of the featues we build require effort and input from each team in the development department. This means a big part of the job is to work closely with the other teams.
  • With our Backend API we have amazingly detailed and deep data to generate the craziest statistics. It would be your role to setup an easy way to generate stats for marketing and for our internal dashboards.

Requirements

  • Strong expertise in designing, building and testing REST APIs with Ruby on Rails.
  • In-depth experience with Heroku deployment and management (big plus if you are an expert on AWS as well).
  • You know all the tricks to improve the performance on a server (NewRelic is basically your best buddy).
  • Ideally you are proficient in NodeJS and are keen to develop your skills (and perhaps eventually help rewrite our current system using Node).
  • Understanding of the fitness market and the current state of fitness technology is a huge plus.

We Offer

  • Very competitive salary.
  • High responsibilty as every developer is encouraged to lead a project of interest.
  • An international, highly motivated team with an office located in central Berlin.
  • Hardware and software setup of your choice.
  • Very flexible working hours.
  • Excellent work / life balance.
  • Free German classes.
  • Free Gym membership.
  • Free coffee, tea, and fresh fruit. 😄
