  • Berlin

  • Founded in October 2014 in Berlin, JustWatch is currently the largest streaming guide in the world, available on web, mobile and TV.

    We are looking for new engineers to join our adventure, grow the (small) backend team and build the next steps of our product API. There are a lot of cool things coming :)

    In parallel with building our consumer apps, we’re also a data-driven marketing agency for the film industry. We run digital marketing campaigns for Hollywood’s latest blockbusters as well as for independent movies.

    Who we are looking for:

    Our engineering culture is built on:

    • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
    • Working software over comprehensive documentation
    • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
    • Responding to change over following a plan
    • Embracing mistakes over avoiding them
    • Full ownership over full control
    • Common sense and trust over textbook compliance
    • Simplicity and focus over completeness

    A lot of words to say that we’re looking for people with an entrepreneurship mindset, enjoying having the freedom to directly own and impact some parts of the JustWatch product.
    You’ll design, architect and build the backend, but will also be directly involved in many product decisions, with a lot of space for growth.

    In addition, for this particular role we are looking for:

    • 2+ years of familiarity with the Go language, experience with Python is a plus
    • 5+ years of work experience in a Backend Engineering role
    • Skills around the Linux command line including basic networking and web technologies
    • General knowledge and experience with relational databases
    • Bonus: Familiarity with GraphQL, gRPC, Prometheus/Grafana, GCP, Postgres, Cassandra or ElasticSearch
    • Fluent in English

    Your responsibilities include:

    • Working closely with frontend and product on the platform for over 15 million users per month: Plan data models and architecture and execute new features from beginning to end
    • Collaborating closely with our infrastructure team in building highly available and reliable services
    • Care for tooling, metrics and other solutions to hold up our content quality to the highest standards
    • Writing, extending and debugging microservices for both existing and planned features

    Our promise:

    • You will become part of a passionate, professional and friendly team while getting first-hand experience in building a world-leading tech company
    • Fun, fast-paced technology: GraphQL, gRPC, Firebase, Pub/Sub, Deploying via ChatOps via Slack, Kubernetes, Prometheus for instrumenting, ScyllaDB, infrastructure running on Google Cloud Platform...
    • A challenging environment with an open feedback culture and a strong focus on personal development. We plan, but we also make fast decisions and turnaround when we were wrong
    • Lots of room for ownership, freedom and own responsibility for growth
    • You will have access to an experienced founder team with an international track record in building successful tech companies
