Senior backend developer

Boksi is a VC-funded fast-growing startup founded in Helsinki in 2018. Our platform helps companies source branded content directly from thousands of content creators effortlessly and efficiently. Leading brands like Wolt, Lidl, Nivea and Burger King are already using Boksi, but we know we've only reached a fraction of the potential our platform has.

We’re now looking for a senior backend developer to join our development team. You will be working with the heart of our business - The Boksi Platform, and helping us take the next step with our platform’s development. The most important technologies used in our platform are Django, Vue.js, PostgreSQL and Docker but we are of course not limited to using just these. 

Our development is moving at breakneck speeds. Here is a taste of what we have accomplished over the past few months:

  • Implementing translation and email template management tools

  • Developing a custom query extension featureset to Django Managers (we are thinking of open sourcing this)

  • General feature development and refactoring of old code

  • Set up our own homegrown feature preview server 

What we expect from you:

  • You value code that is easy to read for humans and fast to execute for computers

  • You are passionate about product and user experience

  • You have excellent knowledge of modern backend development with either Python or with couple of other programming languages

  • Solid knowledge of databases and their database design
  • You have excellent knowledge and experience in building APIs
  • DevOps experience is a big plus
  • Good communication skills in English

We value productivity, flexibility, and collaboration over rigid hierarchies and set-in-stone processes. Working at Boksi means you have the highest autonomy possible to work the way you want. Here’s what we provide you:

  • Possibility to choose how your total compensation is divided between stock options and monthly salary
  • Work where you want - remotely or at the office

  • Flexible working hours to fit your schedule

  • The autonomy to do your work and solve problems in your unique way

  • All the tools you need to succeed, whether remotely or at the office

  • Lightspeed growth that provides excellent opportunities to develop professionally

As well, our success depends fully on bringing our best selves to work, and working together as a team. That’s why our priority is providing opportunities to unwind from work and build strong relationships with each other. And that looks a little something like this:

  • 2 weeks paid vacation from the start

  • Relax on your big day with a birthday holiday

  • Comprehensive healthcare package from Aava

  • Quarterly team-building activities (that are actually fun!)

  • Bi-annual office parties

  • Other group activities like Thursday workouts, afterworks, candy Fridays and so much more!
