Senior Backend Developer

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated

Do you want to take a leading role in developing a brand new technology? Are you ready to take on an exciting challenge at an early stage startup? 

We are looking for a Senior Backend Developer to help build Bubbly. Bubbly is a Release Readiness platform currently in development. We are on a mission to help lean software teams continuously release software with confidence and visibility.


Location: Helsinki, Finland (remote possible +/-3 EET - relocating / local preferred)

Salary and benefits package tailored to your needs.


About Bubbly:

The initial idea for Bubbly was planted a few years back. DevOps consultants working at Verifa continually received requests from customers for a tool to give them visibility across all their data and pipelines. So we decided to build one! In Summer 2020 with help from Business Finland funding, we built up a team and recently established a new company, Valocode Oy, to focus on Bubbly’s development.

At its core, Bubbly is a very lightweight data platform with data pipelines developed in HCL (HashiCorp Configuration Language). Bubbly aggregates, queries and extracts data from multiple tools in the release process into a single dashboard, providing software teams with visibility and confidence in their release quality. Thus far we have built the core engine and UI, and are working towards releasing Bubbly as a SaaS product later this year. The team are big fans of open source, and Bubbly was recently released in open source public beta. Right now, we are self-funded with plans to secure pre-seed investment this year. 

We are a small dedicated team consisting of both technical knowhow and business acumen, and we are currently looking for two more team members - Frontend Developer and Senior Backend Developer. So there is plenty of room to take a leading role in developing a brand new product. And as we are an early stage startup, there is the possibility to have ownership ín the company.


About the role:

You will have a crucial role in developing the Bubbly backend which is entirely written in Golang. We are using NATS and a service-oriented architecture (not quite microservice) where the services communicate via NATS message queues. Postgres is the primary database right now, but we have plans for immutable, append-only databases in the future for more compliance-related activities. As the team was founded from a DevOps company, Verifa, we enjoy our DevOps practices and would hope you will enjoy it also.


Must Haves:

  • Solid knowledge and experience developing in GoLang

  • Solid experience with NATS or other streaming/event-driven systems

  • Practical experience with GraphQL

  • Solid experience with PostgreSQL

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English  

Nice to haves:

We would also appreciate experience or knowledge of the following technologies and practices:

  • Google Cloud

  • Kubernetes

  • Terraform

  • SvelteJS

  • Blockchain

  • Data science

  • HCL (HashiCorp Configuration Language)

  • CI/CD & DevOps (continuous practices)

This is a full-time position. We're located in Helsinki. Remote work is possible with a timezone requirement of +/-3 EET. If this kind of role sounds interesting to you, please submit your CV and application as soon as possible. We are processing applications as we receive them. If your profile and experience look suitable, we’ll have a 30 minute discovery session.
