The Opportunity:

The Product Catalog Management team (or PacMan for short) enables some of the largest and most influential global brands to store and manage their inventories in our MACH SaaS platform. We own the models that store those products, the systems that expose them as REST APIs to the world, and the backoffice management tools.

Ensuring that our systems fit the needs of our customers, consume resources responsibly, and can scale to accommodate absurd traffic spikes are very hard and very interesting problems, and we’re looking for your help to solve them!

We are a remote first team of enthusiastic and experienced Software Engineers, agile and international. If you’d like to contribute to one of the most innovative eCommerce platforms the world has seen, and you have a passion for tech, clean code and understanding the big picture, commercetools is the place for you!

Your Mission:

  • Design, implement and extend our SaaS eCommerce backend in Scala, as well as our core infrastructure components like database mappings and web service APIs
  • Participate and contribute to the team’s roadmap, technical decisions and planning, both by producing quality proposals, giving meaningful feedback and driving alignment
  • Develop a scalable and multi-tenant architecture, allowing our customers to efficiently manage thousand of products variants
  • Test software components regarding usability, functionality and performance, and work closely with Product Management
  • Take part in on-call rotation (with the worldwide distributed team) for production systems

What you need to succeed:

  • 5+ years of experience as a Backend Engineer, developing server-side systems using the JVM
  • 3+ years of experience with functional programming languages, preferably Scala
  • Experience in developing scalable REST APIs on a cloud platform
  • Track record of driving architectural discussions and initiatives
  • Experience mentoring team members and supporting their growth

Nice to have:
