We are currently looking for a senior and full-time back-end engineer who will join an exciting legal tech startup based in Brussels. You will be working remotely with the existing development team of two front-end, one DevOps, and one cyber security engineer, focusing on the back-end development of the platform.
You will report directly to the CTO.
To be very clear: this job posting is not for madewithlove, but for one of our clients whom we consciously chose to work with.
Created in 2018, this client is actively promoting a higher level of transparency towards consumers when their personal data is being collected, enabling a fairer balance between their privacy rights and the needs of organisations. Their SaaS solutions allow companies to comply with the GDPR and e-privacy cookie rules. For compliance reasons you must be based in the EU. (Please only apply if this is the case as we cannot make any exceptions on this.)
What will you be doing
As a Senior back-end Engineer, you will be a key member of our client's development team of top-notch engineers.
You aim to improve others as much as yourself.
You are an initiator and fast learner and you feel comfortable taking over a legacy codebase.
You know where information can be found and actively search for it. You can think for yourself and challenge the information you find. You don't hesitate to ask questions because others know things you don't.
You document everything and in such a way that everybody can understand what is happening and why.
You make sure that everybody in your team feels safe to give their opinion and you value every team member's input. Once a group decision is made, you act as a team member by following the architecture, the processes and coding standards as agreed upon.
You do what you promise and you take ownership of tasks. You always try to go for the best quality possible with respect to timing and budget.
You understand the why of decisions and you suggest improvements when you see an opportunity.
You always aim for quality. You actively and consistently strive to expand your knowledge, both technical and non-technical.
You are able to give others honest, constructive and actionable feedback.
You assign credit accurately and generously.
Clear communication: in times where everybody works remotely and live meetings are scarce, being able to clearly communicate issues or questions is even more important.
