Backend Developer

Salary Competitive

Communicating in codes? 👾 then you'll be perfect as our new Backend developer!  Join the Tech team located in our office - in Copenhagen, Valby -  and take care of our most important business asset: our storefront (website).

🌐 Our customized website - with the latest technology

Users are able to change almost any factor regarding the product they’re buying from us, and that customizability requires a custom website. That’s why we’ve built our website from scratch with an API-first approach using primarily GraphQL. We have both a custom backend (Ruby on Rails) and a decoupled custom frontend (Next.js) with only a few services that are not proprietary: Those being mainly Sendgrid for our mailing service and DatoCMS for our content management needs. We’ve chosen this approach to be able to sell our very custom with the performance and stability of modern technology, with one of the significant driving factors for a decoupled custom frontend being the goal of rapid international scalability independent of our backend infrastructure.

You have the ability to translate codes into action - and together with our newest hire, our Frontend Developer Bob and our Fullstack Developer Andrei, you and they will create, maintain and develop our online universe. 🌌💫
