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

Vollzeit / ab sofort / Office Berlin/Dresden

We are looking for a knowledge-thirsty Backend Engineer (m/f/d) who will join one of our international cross-functional Product teams – team “Prime”. 

The team is constantly working on the Cherry Picks feature in our app. You would help to ensure that our users find a personal recommendation every day. Besides that our team Prime is also working to establish a gRPC communication between the app and the backend to get rid of our current REST APIs.

Especially in the current pandemic situation, it is important for us to protect our employees as best as possible. We regularly monitor and assess the current situation to decide whether to work fully remote or with a hybrid model, depending on the incidence. Even though we want to maintain our comprehensive home office concept in post-COVID times, a regular exchange on site with other team colleagues in our beautiful offices is very important to us. Therefore, please note that the advertised position is not a 100% remote position in the future. The advertised positions are intended for the respective locations mentioned in the job posting (Dresden, Berlin, or both).

If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to us. You can find the contact details below the job advertisements.

We work shoulder to shoulder towards our shared vision and encourage people of color, trans people, queer, gay and non-binary people, and those with disabilities to apply to join our team. Everyone is welcome at LOVOO. If you like, you can include your pronoun in your application (e.g. he, she, they).
