Job description

About the opportunity

We are in the unique position to experience new and interesting situations that many companies have never seen before. We bake challenges by using agile methodologies, top line tools and of course always working with the best of teams.


This is a chance to be part of a rapidly growing team in a company that is changing the food delivery landscape, and be able to influence, execute and see the impact of your work on millions of users. 


We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our AdTech team that is responsible for Non Commission Revenue (NCR) and help us deliver a seamless and personalized ordering experience for our users. Dive into the fast-paced world of AdTech and programmatic advertising, where you will play a crucial role in building and optimizing our advertising technology solutions. Utilize Go to develop systems that handle high-volume transactions and data, with a path to mastery through on-the-job learning of one of the most sought out languages right now. You will produce a clean, maintainable, testable, dynamic and scalable code, and you will actively contribute to code reviews.  In addition, you will manage the distribution and monitor the release, from development to post release, but perhaps more importantly you will bring a strong product-oriented mindset, leveraging technical decisions to solve customer problems. This also means pushing back pieces of work that do not move the needle for our customers or do not help the company's goals.

If you're a creative problem solver who is eager to deliver solutions and hungry for a new adventure, then challenge yourself by joining our #techteam and make an impact!


What you’ll do:

  • Work closely with SW Engineers and Tech Leads as part of an agile team, to build reliable systems and exceed stakeholders expectations.

  • Deliver high quality software responsible for serving hundreds of thousands of requests per minute.

  • Investigate new technologies and strategies to help our services scale to larger data sets and quicker speeds into the future.

  • Highly participate in team’s code reviews by giving valuable feedback and proposing optimisations (Github).

  • Master Golang with the help of your very experienced peers.

  • Mentor other team members.

  • Practice modern software development methodologies and agile processes.

  • Experiment with new frameworks and technologies and learn continuously.


What you’ll need: 

  • At least 5 years of working experience.

  • Solid programming experience in Go is preferred, but a demonstrated willingness and ability to learn Go and experience in any of the following programming languages will also be considered: Rust, Python, Java, Ruby, C#, Kotlin, or Node.js.

  • Knowledge of relational and non-relational database systems (e.g. MongoDB, Redis, Postgres).

  • Excellent eye for detail and a self-motivated problem solver.

  • Superior analytical skills and a strong sense of urgency and ownership in your work.

  • A doer, with a “get-things-done” attitude.

  • Keen to constantly learn and improve your own skills, and not afraid to jump into new things.

  • University and/or Postgraduate Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or equivalent working experience.

  • Strong communication and collaboration skills (English is a must).


Nice to have:

  • Experience with docker, kubernetes.

  • Experience in building low-latency software.

  • Familiarity with at least one major cloud services provider (ideally AWS).

  • Involvement with open source projects.

  • Experience working in an Agile team.


What we offer:

  • If you are happy, we are happy! That’s why we offer an attractive remuneration package for what you bring in!

  • We share a passion for food, so you will certainly appreciate the ticket restaurant card 💳 to spend in restaurants and/or food supplies. We are efooders after all!

  • We take care of you with Private Medical & Life Insurance from day #1 to keep you healthy and happy!

  • We want you to grow with us 🚀 ! And to help you keep improving, we provide you access to our online training platform where you can study 📖 topics for your personal and professional growth!

  • Are you a cappuccino lover ☕? Do you desperately want a cookie? Our cafeteria got you covered!
