Job description
Do you want a job where you will never be working on a dull CRUD layer?

At Poki, our vision is to let the world play by creating the ultimate online playground, that provides easy access to the best games on web. These games are created by our thriving global game developer community, and monetised by in-game advertisements. With around 60 million monthly active users, as a Senior Back End Developer, you’ll be at the forefront implementing scalable, high traffic APIs that bring joy to gamers, while providing valuable insights and revenue streams for game developers. This is in addition to being responsible for designing, building, and maintaining server-side components, and the infrastructure that powers Poki. You will do this together with our skilled senior development team, many of whom have been a part of building Poki over the last ten years.

What this job is about:
This is quite a diverse role, and that’s why we’re looking for an autonomous, versatile back-end developer. You’ll find yourself optimising our cloud-native infrastructure while also mentoring junior developers. You’ll also be talking to our business unit to flush out our new approach, which you’ll then develop and operate in production under extreme load. You’ll also help ingest nearly 2 billion data-points a day, while making sure we push 7+ PetaBytes of data to our users every month. This is a unique, challenging and rewarding job with actual impact and ownership. From ingestion to complex data pipelines and business intelligence, we do everything in house at Poki.

Your challenge as a Senior Back End Developer:
Maintaining, extending and upgrading our GoLang backends, working with the flows for invoicing, data processing and game upload processing.
You’ll also make sure that core parts are feature and unit tested to keep our codebase healthy and in high-quality shape.
Our platform is growing, with 60 million monthly players we can safely be considered a high-traffic environment. We’re handling multiple tens of thousands of sustained dynamic requests a second. Including our cached static routes we push this number to 100k+ requests per second in peak hours.
Leverage our data warehouse to generate the next-generation of data-driven applications within Poki.
Develop heuristics that that steer our advertisement business in realtime and make sure our players get the most fitting content presented to them.

Have at least five years of experience working with Golang.
Have experience with at least two of the following: Clickhouse, BigQuery, Google Cloud, Javascript ES6.
Have end to end experience with the product development lifecycle.
We’re cloud native, so you know how to leverage and understand all the best public clouds (GCP and AWS) have to offer with ease.
You live in or are willing to locate to the Netherlands.

Bonus experience:
Experience with, and knowledge of security and compliance
Experience in mentoring junior team members
Experience in a similar role in a start up or scale up environment

Why work at Poki?
Direct impact on the experience of 60 million players and a community of 350+ game developers.
A lot of personal responsibility and freedom, plus the chance to work together with a diverse, international, talented and self-motivated team.
Play is how we learn; we make sure everyone is being challenged, and offer an annual training budget.
When you grow, we grow: build your career at a fast growing tech scale up. Many members of our team have been with us since their internships and now are leading teams.
We care about our team, and your wellbeing matters. We have a dedicated colleague who focuses on a variety of wellbeing initiatives from regular check-ins with everyone to bi-weekly massages at the office.
Opportunity to connect with colleagues regularly with daily lunches in our colourful office, drinks every Thursday and team activities.
A hybrid work environment, work from home budget, and travel costs covered for those living outside of Amsterdam.
A full-time contract (36-40 hours/week), opportunity to join our Poki Ownership program, and a competitive salary – we value our teams’ skills and experiences.

Are you curious? Do you thrive in an environment of dynamic possibilities? You may well be our Senior Back End Developer. So hit apply and let us know!
