(Senior) Backend Engineer (m/f/d)

Published date Posted on Indeed on Aug 25, 2022 (35 d ago)

At Jimdo, we're big on small. Our mission is to unleash the power of small business owners and help them thrive. Small businesses are the backbone of the global economy, but they receive little support or recognition. We see them and are here to support them. Join us to help design intuitive tools that enable small businesses to solve complex problems.
We run at a steady pace to achieve what we aim for. We learn best by digging deep into data, staying curious, taking calculated risks and sometimes even falling down along the way. It's the lessons we learn in the process that make us better problem-solvers for small business owners.
If you are motivated by our mission and excited to roll up your sleeves, experiment, learn from mistakes, and make a difference to small businesses around the world, we would love to get to know you.

The team
We empower Jimdo to handle billing, payment, and subscription management on our products in the financial and legal frame we need to operate. We ensure our customers receive the right price, charges, and invoices on their purchases. At the same time, we exchange the correct data with the controlling, finance, and data departments. Moreover, we offer flexibility, ease of use, and freedom around payment and billing capabilities to Jimdo Teams and customers by providing products, features, and APIs.

  • Implement new features and maintain existing ones that help users successfully manage their subscription and billing information.
  • Implement new features and maintain projects that help other teams in Jimdo to successfully launch their projects and ideas.
  • Be responsible for the entirety of your features including service structure, API design, implementation, and automated testing.
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack.
  • Review stories, tasks critically and ensure they're appropriately sized for continuous integration and incremental delivery.
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes.
  • Have conversations based on organisational strategy and principles with your teammates when appropriate to ensure team alignment. Orient towards goals and ensure your team members are continuously working towards the shared goals.


  • You enjoy and have experience building backend applications professionally.
  • You communicate effectively, clearly, and concisely in written and verbal form both technical and non-technical subjects, and in an audience-oriented way.
  • You have excellent software development skills in multiple languages and environments (for example Kotlin, Spring Boot, etc.).
  • You have experience in unit, integration, and end-to-end testing.
  • You have experience with database and schema design (e.g. MySQL, Postgres, DynamoDB).
  • You seek and deliver praise and constructive feedback to your team, teammates, and manager in a useful manner.
  • You encourage your teammates to openly share their opinions and contribute to discussions in a respectful manner. You approach disagreement non-defensively with inquisitiveness. You are open to changing your perspective and plans based on others' input.
