About the role:
We’re hiring an experienced staff full-stack engineer to work on our Aiven Console. The Aiven Console enables our users to explore and control their data services via a graphical web user interface. As Aiven Console is often the customer’s first touchpoint with Aiven’s data platform and plays a big part in our product-led growth strategy, we want it to be an intuitive and beautiful experience, while not forgetting the needs of our more experienced users.
We are looking for product-minded engineers who have a keen interest in the business and user behavior, are proactive with product development ideas and tradeoffs, and want to understand the “Why?” behind all things. As a product-minded engineer you communicate well with engineers and non-engineers alike and are interested in how other functions work.
As a staff engineer, we expect you to be a bar raiser in multiple dimensions: technical decision making and mentorship, problem solving, experience, and personal output. Staff engineers are also expected to have a material positive impact outside of your own team. We’d love you to show us how we can improve what we do. Our teams are proud of what we build and value curiosity, healthy debate, and exchange of ideas.
Here are some example areas you may work on:
Our staff engineers are highly experienced and have a proven track record of sound technical decision making and successful software solution deliveries. To match that, you’ll have at least ten years’ experience building web-facing applications. But more than the years we care about what you have been doing. We want to hear about the products you’ve shipped, how they were built, what was the impact, and what you learned while doing that.
Our frontend is built with TypeScript, React and Redux, our backend centers on Python and PostgreSQL, and the application is hosted on public cloud infrastructure. As such, to succeed as a staff full-stack engineer at Aiven you have most of the following:
If you ask us what’s the best thing about working for Aiven, many will probably say it’s the high concentration of talent from around the world that we have here. Enjoy the agile environment of a hyperscale scale-up where you can truly make an impact and have fun while at it.
