Backend Developer.

Find and implement solutions for customer problems in the area of Developer Experience with us.

We are expanding our team of back-enders with experienced people who are not afraid to come up with their own ideas and solve problems independently. We have a variety of jobs. We are constantly improving the performance and scalability of our services so that Kontent.ai can be relied on 365 days a year. In the near future, we will be looking, for example, to support GraphQL.

What will you do?

We work in an agile environment - from Scrum and Kanban, we choose what works best for us and transform it into our own system. Within the team, we set priorities together and set goals - which is why we like to meet in person at the offices at least once a week. We collect and monitor the work in the Kanban Board, from which each of us takes up individual tasks.

When you choose a task to do, you identify the problem and come up with a solution. We will then talk about it in the team and fine-tune the details. Finally, we implement the final variant.

Who will you work with?

The Developer Experience department consists of three small teams working together side by side. In yours, you will meet Zdeněk and Mirek. Zdeněk is a Technical Leader. His voice carries weight so you want to be in his good books in case you don't agree on something in the team! He will also support you in your personal development. Mirek has a wide range of projects in the Czech Republic and in rival companies under his belt, so let’s just say he knows what he’s talking about.

In addition to other development teams in Kontent.ai, we work closely with our product manufacturer Lukáš. With him, we set borders for individual tasks, within which we then navigate as developers.

DevOps help us ensure that the infrastructure runs like a well-oiled machine. In the rare times when we need to modify the interface, we add an UXer to the party so that our solution is user-friendly for customers.

We mostly rely on automatic testing, or we test each other's code manually in a team. However, when a larger project needs to be manually tested, we pass it on to our QA engineers.

Occasionally, Support turn to us to consult with us on more technically demanding client issues.

What will you enjoy?

In addition to your responsibilities within the position, you will have a lot of freedom. We are not in the habit of breathing down the neck of our employees, nor dictating to them what and how to do their job. We solve individual tasks from the beginning - we build a reliable solution from scratch.

You will have the opportunity to experience a lot of interesting and exciting projects, so there is never a risk of your day becoming tedious and boring.

In addition, we will support you in professional and personal development - we dedicate 20% of our work time to innovation and work on ourselves. You will get access to Pluralsight and an extensive corporate library, you will participate in trainings, conferences, and meetups…

Is it you?

Maybe you already work as a senior developer in a corporate and you are looking for a place where your opinion will be heard better? Or you are a Technical Lead in a small company that focuses on custom software? You are experienced and confident enough to make your own decisions? 

  • You are an adept .NET back-end developer
  • You have experience developing in Azure or another cloud service provider
  • You will definitely get extra points for your experience with SaaS
  • You are capable of finding the problem on your own, coming up with a solution, explaining it to your colleagues, and then bringing it to life.

Want to know more? Contact us and meet online or in our Brno offices.

Perks & Benefits

Work-life balance

Balancing your professional and personal life can be tricky. We want to help you strike the right balance between both of them without having to compromise either one. That’s why we offer flexible working hours, working from home (or anywhere else), and a five-week holiday so that you can get in touch with your inner social butterfly. We also extend paternity leave for fathers and give loyal employees a month-long sabbatical to unplug and recharge.

Health is a priority

We take the health and happiness of our employees seriously. We provide a meal allowance so you can eat healthy at home or take advantage of healthy snacks at the office. We also offer massages to help your body (and mind) relax when you need to recharge your batteries. Or you can take part in sports events with your coworkers—whether that means playing football, badminton, or squash. And if you get sick? No worries! We provide unlimited sick days, so you can take care of yourself when you need it.

We learn every day

We believe that a growth mindset is the real key to success. That’s why we dedicate 20% of our working time to education and innovations so that each employee can thrive in their career—from attending conferences and running internal workshops to borrowing books from our company library and gaining professional certifications. The icing on the cake? We also have a native English teacher who helps us improve our language skills.
