ROLE OVERVIEW

User engagement is one of the key factors of Brainly’s success, and it is present in every part of our product. As a member of a Growth team, you will be responsible for web experience from the very beginning of a user journey, through his / her AHA moment until habitual usage of our app.

We’re looking for a Back-end Engineer to work with us to develop a high quality and reliable product for our users, who is ready to tackle complex challenges with the right tools.

We don’t expect our future colleagues to have the experience with every language or tool we use at production. We write mainly in Go but, as everything in life, these can be learned and we are sure that our bootcamp will get you up to speed.

We are also a team of engineers with diverse backgrounds and we are more than happy to learn from your experience too.

Are you a goal-driven team player ? Do you like tackling new challenges using leading-edge industry tools? Can you adapt to rapidly changing conditions while learning and bettering yourself?

Are you a detail-oriented expert who loves focusing on quality? If you answered yes to these questions, you might just be the perfect candidate for this role!

HOW DO WE BUILD SERVICES?

Back-end engineers enjoy all the pros and cons of distributed programming. We ship changes to production multiple times a day and our delivery pipeline makes your code ready to join thousands of already running containers in just 5 minutes.

Our services land on Kubernetes that is hosted on AWS . We also leverage the power of AWS serverless like Lambdas, DynamoDB, AppSync, Cognito, just to name a few.

Services communicate either via messaging or good old HTTP. Our platform is defined entirely as code ( Terraform, Ansible ) and we get lots of goodies out of the box alerting, logging and telemetry to name a few.

We are believers in the DevOps culture , but we still have some things to do to get there.
