We are looking for a Backend Engineer, who will join the team which focuses on building out our stream processing platform that allows customers to deploy custom logic and perform computation on data. You will join a small, but growing team of strong, focussed engineers who enjoy finding simple solutions to complex problems by breaking them down into solvable chunks and iterating.

* Able to work autonomously and be proactive. We do not micromanage our engineers and encourage high engagement.
* Passionate about quality. Your code needs to make a difference.
* Have excellent communication skills. English is our primary working language. But we believe good communication skills span beyond a particular language.
* Passionate about your work. We all are.

What’s in it for you:
