Back-End Developer (Mid-Level & Senior)
As a small, tight-knit team, we are conceptualizing, designing, and developing outstanding digital products for all devices. We don’t use technology for the sake of using it. We strive to solve problems and create unique experiences. We are curious, love exploring and pushing ourselves, and are looking for a similar mindset in you.
As a back-end developer in the okay bueno team, you will be contributing to create strong and resilient backend applications that provide a wide range of services, from web applications, to mobile apps via APIs, to voice interfaces, to internal applications. You will be involved at different stages of the product development cycle –from ideation to launching it, and further iterations– and you are expected to actively contribute on the creation and maintenance of the back-end services that power some of the products that we operate – from data modelling to API services.
We pride ourselves in not having any Project or Account Managers – our creative teams manage themselves and lead communication with our partners.
