  • Germany

  • Dealfront is a remote first, fast growing international SaaS scale-up. We are on a mission to give sales and marketing teams the data, applications and insights they need to win deals. Simply put, Dealfront helps companies know more about their website visitors, which enables them to convert promising visitors into sales leads. Dealfront also provides leads in the form of emails addresses and phone numbers. 

    We now have 270+ team members based across 40 countries and six offices. Together, our companies are striving to be the leading sales intelligence and go-to-market platform in our core European and North American markets.

    About this role

    Senior Backend Software Engineers at Dealfront work mainly on building APIs, background data processing flows, and integrations. Being a very data intensive application, much of the work on the backend involves optimising and effectively using various databases - AWS RDS & Aurora, AWS DynamoDB, Elasticsearch and Redis, to name a few.

    Our backend consists of multiple small-to-medium sized Ruby and Ruby on Rails apps combined with Serverless components (AWS Lambda, API Gateway, Kinesis, SQS) on the side. We pride ourselves on keeping apps working smoothly, and the codebase tidy and well-tested. We dedicate time for upgrades, refactoring, and overall improvements for developer productivity and happiness.

    For people with skills and interest, we offer possibilities to work on our Ember.js frontend too, enabling people to grow to a fullstack role. Equally, there are opportunities to learn and be involved in the infrastructure, DevOps and serverless development.

    Role description

    Being part of the Backend development team involves working with a broad series of components and technologies. These include (but are not limited to): data pipelines and systems built with serverless and streaming technologies, or the internal data services used across the platform.

    Curiosity and passion to constantly learn new things is also a key part of this role. We are always looking to improve how we work and what tools we use. We dedicate time to research and test new technologies in order to improve our systems and make them work more efficiently and reliably.

    What you’ll work on:

    • Work with streaming and serverless components supporting the data collection pipelines such as AWS Kinesis and AWS Lambda.
    • Work optimising and storing effectively all the data we collect, using various databases such as DynamoDB, AWS RDS & Aurora, OpenSearch/Elasticsearch or Redis.
    • Build internal applications mainly in Ruby, running in Kubernetes or AWS and communicating with gRPC, event based and streaming technologies.
    • Provide code reviews to your peers


      • Expertise with any object-oriented programming language and willingness to learn our stack. We use Ruby as our main programming language in the backend, but we are not afraid to use other languages if they are the right tool for the job.
      • Interest in building scalable Serverless systems using AWS technologies such as Lambda, Kinesis or API Gateway.
      • Understanding how to model and build applications using microservices architecture patterns. If you have experience with Kubernetes and gRPC is even better.
      • Strong software architecture & data modeling skills to base engineering decisions on product vision
      • Experience in DevOps and Infrastructure is a plus, especially in AWS, Terraform, Docker or Kubernetes
      • Ability to help and improve the work of your colleagues through your teamwork and communication skills
      • Experience managing, monitoring and troubleshooting production grade web applications
      • Be physically located within European timezones


    • The chance to work with a very knowledgeable, high-achieving and fun team
    • An international, diverse, dynamic and committed work environment
    • The opportunity to work remotely, with a flexible work schedule
    • Mental Health support with Auntie
    • Personal budget for home office equipment
    • Company retreats - we’ve recently returned from a week in Germany
    • Personal development plans as standard, allowing you to develop the skills you think are most important to succeed in your role, as well as regular 1-1s and group training.
