Job description
DigiExam is a fast growing startup with exciting new opportunities in our development team. We are on the hunt for an innovative and solution driven senior backend developer to join our Stockholm office.

The platform backend that you will work with is a Go application hosted on Google Cloud Platform - which means that you will have all the Google Cloud Platform products at your disposal (more details: https://cloud.google.com/products/). Some of the tools we frequently use today are App Engine, Compute Engine, Datastore, Memcache and BigQuery.

- You know how to deliver an outstanding backend and API for a product

- You have a genuine interest in backend development and you stay up-to-date with the latest trends, but still have the maturity not to jump on every new database that shows up on HN

We can offer you the opportunity to:

- Work with a platform used by thousands of teachers and students worldwide daily

- Use innovative technologies like Google Cloud Platform and Electron and be a core member of a smaller team

- Work in a SCRUM team with short release cycles and great dev processes
