Senior Backend Engineer (f/m) 80- 100%

As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will help us write the digital future of Tamedia. You will help to architect, design, and build our new world-class CMS system in the Digital Publishing & Development group.

What you bring

  • You are a dyed-in-the-wool geek, who dreams in loosely-coupled components. You love the possibilities that technology opens up, but you also recognize that not all shiny new technologies are ready for prime time.
  • You probably attended a good technical university, and since then you have built up many years of experience, and learned from a bunch of mistakes.
  • You enjoy helping other engineers to grow, and you know that having others challenge your ideas might help you to improve.
  • Backend engineering is your favorite activity, and you are fluent in mature technologies like Java, Spring, Hibernate, RabbitMQ, and ElasticSearch, but can also help identify newer tech that might propel us forward.
  • Knowing your way around Linux, GIT, Docker and Kubernetes would be helpful.

Our technology groups tend to use English as a lingua franca, but some German would come in handy.
What we bring
Tamedia is transforming itself into a digital-first company, and you can help pave the way. The tools we build allow journalists to deliver news to millions of users. Our team works with microservices and messaging concepts; you can also expect an environment of clean code and clean unit tests.

There are over 300 other software engineers within Tamedia, meaning you will be able to access a large knowledge base and learn a great deal from your colleagues, whether that's in connection with an integration project with AWS, or the best table-tennis strategy. In addition to an awesome central location in Zurich, we also offer excellent social benefits. Come and join our family of friendly, smart geeks and a sheltie.
