Senior Backend Engineer#

About Opbeat
Opbeat is application monitoring for JavaScript apps. We help developers monitor and debug React, Angular and Node.js applications in production.

The Role
Working as a Senior Engineer at Opbeat is about scratching your own itch. We’re building the services that solve the pains we have and we dogfood everything. Opbeat was the first Opbeat customer.

You’ll be working with the engineering team on building services that support new features, improving existing features, experimenting and improving product performance, all while receiving and processing billions of datapoints each week. Based on wireframes and visual design from the product team, we aim to release product updates every single week and we ship bug fixes and improvements on a daily basis.

You might be the right fit, if:
  • You’re conscious about tradeoffs between the ideal and the pragmatic solution
  • You enjoy moving fast
  • You’re a team player
  • You’re product orientated: Great code is only great if it solves real problems for the customer
  • You understand the problems our customers face and obsess with solving them in the simplest possible way
  • You have several years of experience programming applications that live on the web

Technologies we currently use:
Python, Django, Tornado, PostgreSQL, Redis, Cassandra and Rust - we believe in using the right tools for the job at hand. We're 100% on AWS and we're serious about developers operating their own code. All engineers are in the PagerDuty rotation.

Working out of our Copenhagen office is required for this role - trust us, you’ll love it here - and practically everyone in Copenhagen speaks english.
Your co-workers will be from all over the world.

We offer
Amazing free lunch, snacks and beverages every day, gym membership, awesome office, competitive salary/equity package, 5-weeks paid vacation/year and the possibility of working for one of Europe’s most promising and well funded tech startups.

We’re a small team of ambitious friends that all believe we can change stuff, if we do it together. We mainly work out of brand new office in wonderful Copenhagen.

Our investors include Mike Krieger, Andreas Ehn, Andrew McCollum and Balderton Capital.
