If you are a talented backend developer with ambition to grow and tackle challenging projects, this will get you excited.
We guarantee that you’ll be challenged more than ever before. At AutoUncle we’re solving highly challenging problems in many areas. We don’t expect you to excel in all of them, but expect that you help push the boundaries of what’s possible within:
- Indexing and scaling data from millions of cars
- Creating transparency and guide consumers to find the car of their dreams
- Build tools and deliver insights to car dealers that help them run their business better
- Serving scalable APIs
- Refining our statistical algorithms to valuate used car prices with automatic market calibration
Our current stack runs on Ruby on Rails, Coffeescript, Bootstrap, Postgres, Redis, Memcached, Sidekiq, Mandrill, Dedicated servers + AWS.
We work using: Github, Slack, Trello, Honeybadger, Google Analytics, Semaphore (for automated testing) as well as a range of internally built monitoring and management systems.
When you arrive at the romantic HQ in Aarhus (Klostergade) you’ll be welcomed by an international bunch of excited comrades. The environment here is vibrant and friendly – AutoUncle is a talented team on a big mission. As you get started you’ll quickly appreciate that the company has a clear vision and that the time from idea to execution is short. We move fast and experiment passionately to achieve measurable progress. You’ll get to learn people from different cultures, speak a lot of English and get a chance to visit our offices in Berlin and Romania (we have a few hackers here as well).
AutoUncle is a well-funded startup with traction in 10 countries and strong growth. The service is used by tens of thousands of people daily and customers are being onboarded at a fast pace. Through five years we’ve built a strong codebase with advanced technology that you won’t find anywhere else. Autouncle’s platform is still expanding and we relentlessly attack new and ambitious challenges.
You’re a talented backend developer with +3 years of professional experience. We’re not picky about academic background and don’t require that you have advanced proficiency in Ruby and Ruby on Rails. You should be a fast learner with an ability to self-ignite and work closely with other talents.
The main challenges you will be facing are within architecture, scaling, performance and collaboration and we expect that you have previous experience from other projects.
We appreciate to see that you care about what you build and work with yourself to become even better.
How to Apply
Send us an email and include a few paragraphs where you tell us a bit about yourself and what interests you about the position. Besides that we’re super curious to see what you’ve done before: code examples of work and perhaps responsibilities you have had in other projects. The more specific the better. If we sense there is a good match we’ll invite you to talk and perhaps visit our office in Aarhus.
We handle all interactions discretely and will make sure that your ambition to upgrade is not going to create conflict elsewhere. Email: [email protected]
