Job Purpose and Overview

We are looking for a seasoned professional to help us build tools that bring IT Service Management (ITSM) to the new level: defining and tracking SLAs, enhancing Jira workflows and configuration, managing assets, and integrating everything together through REST APIs. Our products are used by thousands of companies from various industries to make their ITSM processes a piece of art.
You'll become a member of the product team that delivers new features, improves apps usability, and cares of the tech behind the scenes.

  • Lead, design, build, and maintain efficient and scalable applications written in TypeScript / React, Node.js and Java.
  • Follow and establish the best engineering practices: automated testing, code review, pair programming, YBIYRI (you built it you run it).
  • Automate cloud services and configuration management to ensure scalability, operational efficiency and cost optimization.
  • Share your thoughts openly and honestly on what would be the best for the customers and the business: you will be part of discussions about the future of our products and Appfire.

  • Excellent understanding of modern Cloud architectures, and practical experience implementing them in AWS, specifically with Lambda, DynamoDB, RDS, API Gateway, SQS, SNS, EC2, S3, and CloudFormation.
  • Deep architectural understanding of web applications, including performance, quality and security aspects.
  • Desire and ability to mentor other team members.
  • Command of English at level B2 or higher.

Nice to have:
