Volumental is a tech company helping millions of shoppers around the world find perfect fitting footwear. In less than five seconds, our 3D scanner and AI-powered recommendations guide shoe shoppers to find the right pair - every time. With customers across the world including New Balance, Bauer, Ecco and XXL, we are on a mission to help 500 million shoe shoppers find perfect fitting footwear by 2025 both in-store and online.

Tired of feeling limited by an outdated architecture and old school legacy code? We are not afraid to throw out the old and use the latest methods and tools to create a modern and cutting-edge backend. If service meshes, distributed relational databases, and serverless computing spice up your life, you may have found your new team.



What will you do?

In order to deliver reliable user experiences and further develop incredible products, our cloud needs to be regularly improved and expanded. When you join our team you will ask yourself questions like: How can we ensure our cloud handles the massive traffic increases during Black Friday? How can we guarantee shoe shoppers are able to find perfect-fitting shoes in milliseconds all over the world? How can a growing number of developers add new services without creating hassle?

As a backend developer at Volumental, you will be part of the Cloud team. You will help drive the design of our microservice architecture, ensure that infrastructure lives up to high expectations of availability and stability, and support other team members when it comes to design and implementation. You will, of course,  write a lot of code, creating the core services used by other services internally while also writing awesome CLI tools that other developers can’t live without.

We want to work with you because you are:

  • A self-motivated and collaborative team member
  • Open to teaching others and learning new skills 
  • Excited by solving challenging problems
  • Keen to work in a caring scale-up environment

We expect you to:

  • Have 5+ years of professional software development experience
  • Have designed and built a microservices backend
  • Have experience in cloud platform infrastructure (e.g., AWS, GCP or Azure)
  • Have worked with cloud infrastructure, micro-service solutions and Kubernetes
  • Write and communicate code and ideas well

Bonus - Don’t let these stop you from applying, but if they fit you, please let us know!

  • You are proficient in golang
  • You have experience working with Google Cloud Platform
  • You have experience with OAuth
  • You have experience with infrastructure as code (Terraform)

COVID-19 Notice:

Our recruitment process normally includes at least one opportunity for a face to face meeting, but in these times we have moved to virtual hiring and onboarding processes to respect social distancing. Should a candidate prefer to meet in person at the final stages of recruitment, we take all necessary precautions to ensure everyone’s safety.

Our entire company has been to a large degree working remotely during this period, and we are confident about maintaining a creative and efficient environment while away from the office! However, as we do hope to return to the office eventually, you will need to relocate to Stockholm for this role.

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!
