Backend Engineer (m/f)

Who we are:

Doodle is the world’s favorite online scheduling tool with nearly 30 million monthly users around the globe. People use Doodle to plan everything from dinners with friends and family to business meetings. We are a fast-growing team of 40 passionate engineers, designers, product managers and salespeople spread out in Belgrade, Berlin, Tel Aviv and Zurich.

You’ll be joining our newly formed cross-functional Partnerships team based in our Berlin office. We want to grow our user base by partnering with the largest chat platforms in the world. You and your team will bring the best possible Doodle experience into mobile chat applications like Facebook Messenger, Viber and others.

We are specifically looking for:

  • 3+ years of experience as a backend engineer
  • Strong knowledge in Java (or others JVM-based languages)
  • Experience using Node.js
  • A data-driven and agile mindset
  • Experience building services for the web and RESTful APIs

 Whom you’ll be working with:

We’re a fun bunch of people and we have an open, casual and inclusive atmosphere, where everyone encourages each other to share their opinions, interests and weird hobbies. You’ll be working with different people in the company, sometimes across offices.

In Berlin we’ve been working on the mobile apps for the last three years and have recently started to diversify into other areas. From our office you can see the TV Tower and it’s a pretty good place if you’re into S-Bahn spotting. Every couple of weeks after work we take over the office to play board games. Dogs are welcome and occasionally one of us brings theirs.

We are currently working with these technologies:

  • Backend: Java, Python, Node.js
  • Testing: JUnit, JMockit
  • Native: iOS/macOS, Android, Chrome extensions
  • Infrastructure: Docker, Kubernetes, Helm, Jenkins, AWS, Prometheus, Grafana
  • Data: MongoDB, PostgreSQL
  • Process: JIRA, Kanban, Scrum, CI/CD

(Don’t worry if you only know some of these, we’ve all had to learn them on the job and will help you getting up to speed, gently).

What we offer:

  • Top-spec hardware: you choose your setup
  • Flexible working hours, home office
  • Personal budget for educational courses and conferences
  • Make an impact for millions of users
  • A friendly, passionate and international working environment
  • Opportunity to travel to Belgrade, Tel Aviv and Zurich. This includes a once per year budget to do so, even if there is no direct business reason! 

So, get in touch!

Doodle provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or genetics. We believe that a diverse team makes for better products and a better workplace. Our team comes from all over the world (representing 20 nationalities!) and from varied backgrounds. Our current team of 41 has 10 women. This is not enough, and we’d particularly love to hear from women and other groups underrepresented in the tech industry, but obviously we will consider all strong applicants!

  • Personal development

    Commitment to further education and development. We want to make sure you're always learning something new.

  • Office life

    Friendly, talented coworkers and a fun office environment. Weekly game nights and plenty of time to hang out together. Just ask us!

Team & Culture

We're a tight-knit team of 40 (or so) spread out over four different countries. We’ve got our home-base in Zurich, our app teams and designers in Berlin, and our AI counterpart Meekan, in Tel Aviv. 

We’re not a huge company so our team structure enables us to quickly implement new ideas before they get stale on the corporate ladder. Everyone here is encouraged to contribute or experiment, and if we’re all in agreement about a decision we go for it.
