- Skills around the linux command line including basic networking and web technologies
- Experience with some SQL data stores, preferably PostgreSQL
- Solid code craftsmanship including great communication and writing code to be read by others

- Hands-on evolution of our internal core product with full responsibility for product, UX and technical design
- You're motivated more by results than technology, as some part of the job isn't the shiniest tech in town - but you get a kick from working fast, with a lot of responsibility and together with some really smart colleagues on one of the most important topics in our company
- You will mentor and develop the talent we already have on board, as well as find and hire promising candidates for your team
- You do care about clean craft, good tooling, metrics though to fit your solutions into our 12factor Kubernetes stack, deploying it with ChatOps, which is fun
- You're experienced wrangling data from all kinds of sources - JSON / CSV / ProtoBuf / REST / SOAP -> you've seen and debugged through your share of dirty and unreliable third party data
- You have an eye for simplicity and constantly try to make complex things happening in the background easy and approachable to users, baking them into readable code
- You will own and design all data models and schemas and can deal with modern SQL (CTEs, constraints, transactions)
- You will excel in an international and internationalized environment, caring for the needs of all our internal users in Berlin and Los Angeles

## Our promise:

- You will become part of a passionate, professional and friendly team while getting first-hand experience in building a world-leading tech company
- High speed, low friction: You'll own the roadmap, deliverables and milestones - and directly lead a small commando team without any heavy management processes inbetween
- A steep learning curve: You will work directly with and learn from Dominik and Christoph who are leading experts in campaign technology, product management and internal software engineering.
- A challenging environment with an open feedback culture and a strong focus on personal development
- Lots of room for personal development, freedom and responsibility
