Backend Developer

Published on 7 Aug 2018

We are Aiven – a managed cloud services startup launched in 2016 by a team with over 10 years of experience in open-source databases and cloud technologies. We run and manage open-source databases such as PostgreSQL and Apache Kafka in all major clouds including AWS, Google Cloud, and Azure. Backed by Europe’s leading investors, our services are used daily by hundreds of customers across the globe with more joining every single day. Talouselämä magazine also chose Aiven as one the most promising Finnish startups in 2018!

Aiven is growing fast, so we are now looking for a Backend Developer to join our committed and talented team! You will be developing new features for the Aiven platform and further extending our selection of managed self-healing open-source database services (DBaaS). Our philosophy is to automate everything and to avoid repetitive manual work in everything we do. Our back-end systems are mostly written in Python as well as some Go, C, and Java. Aiven currently offers seven different open-source database services, including PostgreSQL, Apache Kafka, Elasticsearch, Apache Cassandra and Redis. We also use most of these internally to build the Aiven platform.

The person we are looking for is enthusiastic about programming and has a driven mindset. We value analytical problem-solving skills and willingness to exchange ideas. You don’t have to be a professional yet, but we are looking for someone who has the willingness and attitude to deepen his/her skills in backend development! The role can be modified according to your level of expertise, and you may start as a thesis worker, for instance.

Requirements for the applicant:

  • Relevant educational background (e.g. Bachelor’s or Master’s degree studies in information technology or computer science)
  • Strong programming skills in Python
  • Familiarity with Linux
  • Fluent verbal and written English skills (Finnish not necessary)

What is seen as an advantage:

  • SQL and/or NoSQL database skills
  • Knowledge of IT security and networks

What we offer:

  • Dynamic startup environment in a rapidly growing, internationally operating company
  • A supportive team of almost 20 experienced colleagues
  • Agile working methods
  • Central office location in downtown Helsinki
  • Possibility for stock options on top of the monthly salary for permanent employees
