About the role

As our new Senior database engineer, you will be part of a small team that is working with refreshing our platforms and architecture. We are constructing microservices and are moving towards event-driven architecture.

We strive to follow best practices and keep things as simple as they can be. In this position, you will have a great opportunity to impact our future tech stack, and you will be a big part of technical discussions and decision-making to ensure that we build something that lasts for the long run.
