Job Description

How are we working in the Backend Team?

As an engineer, it is a very fulfilling experience to work in the Backend Team at tutti.ch, as you are involved in every aspect of software development. We don't use Scrum but a development model based on the Basecamp Shape Up approach, which means we get involved from the very beginning of a new feature development where we assist the Product and Design Team in technical questions. We collaborate with the Web, iOS, and Android developers to provide them with an API on which they can build upon. In the Backend Team, we work also closely with our colleagues from the Systems Team and you can choose to be involved in System Engineering tasks.

We run our services written in Go on AWS using Kubernetes. We deploy daily to more than 300k active users, directly from Gitlab where we also do code reviews. We celebrate ownership and responsibility; we are responsible not only for the software design and implementation but also for the deployment and monitoring of our services.

At tutti.ch, we have been working on many exciting projects, and we have a lot more in the pipeline. One big project we worked on in 2021, and which we are very proud of, is the development of an on-platform instant messaging to allow our users to get in contact even more direct and safely. We offer seamless integration of Web, iOS, Android, and email communication. The Backend Team built a solution from the ground up using Golang, Redis, PostgreSQL, and SendGrid as an external email service provider. The system has proven to be very solid and handles high numbers of connections and messages.


What should you bring to start working with us?

Most important is a positive attitude and passion for your job. We live a people over processes mentality - we are looking for a pragmatic and empathic team member, who seeks understanding before being understood.

You should have a solid background in Go programming and real-world experience providing web-services. It would be a great addition if you have experience in full-text search (Elasticsearch), relational databases at a reasonable scale (PostgreSQL), service orchestration (Docker, Kubernetes) and (AWS) cloud services in general.
