Our Web Experience team is responsible for our PWA platform and SEO tools, content, and performance.

In this role, you can work remotely from anywhere in Poland.

About the team

The Web Experience team was formed in the Berlin OLX office in April 2020. It was the merging of the former SEO and PWA Platform teams.

At present, it consists of two backend engineers, three front-end engineers, an engineering manager, and a product manager - all fully dedicated to the team.

Additionally, we rely on the help of a product analyst and an SRE, which we share with other teams inside our parent organization (consisting of four development teams).

We've been working remotely 100% of the time since 2020 and we plan to stay remote-first after the pandemic.

This is a highly technical team handling two key topics : SEO and PWA.

One key aspect of our team is that the scope is pretty broad so we focus on building the right tools and processes to avoid as much manual work and human error as possible.

The architecture of our mobile website is an important part of good performance, which turns out to be the foundation for a great customer experience and a good SEO ranking.

This highly impacts our end users, making sure search engines such as Google can find us and therefore our customers can find us on Google.

Last but not least, we are data-driven. We use data to validate our decisions. Deciding which are the right metrics in each case is part of our challenge as a team.

When it comes to day to day work, here's what you'll find :

  • All systems running on AWS
  • A mix between active development of new solutions (Kotlin running on EKS) and decoupling from legacy (large PHP 7 monolith on EKS)
  • Strong observability culture
  • Great scale handling the mobile websites (PWA) and SEO for our 7 markets in Europe
  • Proper CI / CD (GitLab pipelines)
  • Engineers working on infrastructure-as-code alongside SREs
  • A good approach to short and long term planning
  • Good work / life balance
  • Who we’re looking for :

    As a Backend Engineer, you :

  • You are curious about SEO and web performance and have a growth mindset
  • You have experience with either Kotlin or Java
  • You see the value in testing and know how to do it (unit testing, end-to-end testing)
  • You are eager to work proactively with the team on improving the overall way of working
  • You communicate effectively in English
  • These are "nice to have" traits, but aren't strict requirements :

  • You worked with distributed and scalable solutions
  • You know AWS, technologies like DynamoDB, SNS , SQS , S3 , etc.
  • You have basic knowledge in building CI / CD pipelines, Gitlab, Kubernetes, Terraform, and New Relic
  • What we’ll give you :

  • A salary : 10.000 - 15.000 (for junior), 15.000 - 20.000 PLN gross (for mid) + up to 15% annual bonus
  • Remote work from anywhere in Poland
  • A diverse international team of passionate and talented engineers that work together to take each other to the next level
  • An inclusive environment : we listen to everyone’s voice when making decisions
  • Ability to learn cutting-edge concepts and innovation in an agile environment on a global scale
  • A flexible working environment where you can drive your outcomes
  • Company mobile phone, laptop, and other tools you might need
  • Open selection of training e-courses including MyAcademy, Udemy, and specialist AWS training
