Backend Engineer

Before you start reading, let’s do a quick check if this is worth your time.

For starters, we are not a typical startup company. Neither is this a typical 9-5 role. If you are looking for a cushy corporate career-fast-track job with a foosball table and three meals a day at the office, I’d recommend you swipe left on this one.

Still reading? Good. Let us tell you who we are and who we think you are.

THIS IS US

The founding team has almost a decade of presence in Singapore and the APAC market with a wide range of experience from digital analytics to enterprise software. We had begun by implementing data projects for clients across the entire region in the space of Business Intelligence, Data Engineering, ETL & Advanced Analytics. With our services, we have expertise and a reputation for the best in class data engineering, API integration, systems automation and more. In the process, we realized that data to one data lake or to a dashboard is not enough and decided to focus on ‘actionable data’ and built a Customer Data Platform. Learn more about our team’s and product’s vision here.  We strongly encourage you to research our product or even asking us to try it before you apply for this role.

Our clients and partners in the region range from Singapore, Hong Kong to New Zealand and from startup unicorns to traditional telcos or banks with brands everyone recognizes.

We are currently organized around two hubs, one in Brno, the Czech Republic city where our product team is based and Singapore, where our analytics, client services, and sales teams are. We work from coworking spaces, allowing part-time flexi work from home arrangements to those who like that and for developers, we offer full flexibility. Because of this setup, our values are ultimate trust, openness and responsibility. We are big on building the data community – you might have already heard about the Shelovesdata.com community platform thanks to this, our team is also super diverse. Foremost, when looking for talent, we care about practical experience and attitude more than we care about diplomas and hard skills.

 

A ”BACKEND ENGINEER” AT MEIRO.

Rather than a plain old job description, we asked our lead back-end engineer to lay it down for you. Fasten your seat belt and let’s get into it:

“Somehow I have always wanted to work in a nicely designed environment. I finally have this feeling at Meiro. Our projects are modular, scalable and easily extensible. Parts of the system are decoupled into the Docker containers, so the system installation is a piece of cake. The back-end developer at Meiro cares about this environment and expands it with the new features.

Everyday basic tools & approaches you will use in our team

We write mostly in Python 3.7 where we use things like:
— static typing
— strict OOP paradigm with proper design patterns
— automated tests
— SqlAlchemy
— Flask


– We communicate between modules with the RabbitMQ message broker.
– We store our code in GIT repositories.
– We do code reviews.
– We continuously expand our REST APIs and document it with ApiAry.
– We run our Docker containers in Docker Compose and Docker Swarm.
– We write documentation about our system’s parts.


Things that would be good to be familiar with

– UNIX systems
– Code debugging
– SQL and databases
– AWS services: S3, Redshift, SES
– Nginx
– PHP
– HTML & CSS


We don’t expect you to know everything. But you will need to bring at least some basics, a team player attitude and the right amount of motivation. This is a great opportunity to learn on the job and get your hands on modern tech stack. We will gladly teach you everything that we know.


Agile methods mean a lot for us. We have a team stand-up every Monday, we manage the tasks with proper priorities in JIRA and we do releases of the new versions several times per month.

Our company is open to digital nomads. I joined Meiro at its start in Bali and then I traveled across Canada for one year. I currently work in Brno together with the team at Impact Hub.”

 

If this inspired you, take a stab, send us a nice note and tell us about projects that you’ve done, links to your blog or your Github repositories. A resume helps, a Linkedin profile is fine. You can reach us at work@meiro.io.
