Backend Team Leader

Engineering | Berlin, Germany | Full Time

Job Description

Fit Analytics — the world’s leading size advisor solution for online clothes shopping — is looking for a motivated full-time Backend Team Leader to join our team. You will lead a 5-member backend team and help make sure that our cloud-based system is easily scalable. You should have a desire to lead, oversee development processes, ensure code reliability, and suggest efficient and effective solutions.


Who We Are

Based in Berlin and San Francisco, we’re a team of data scientists, fashionistas, physicists, designers, and hackers, working together to tackle a single problem: making it easy for online shoppers to find the right clothes size. We’re helping some of the world’s largest clothing brands solve sizing issues, boost conversions and slash returns.


What We Do

Our size advisor helps companies instantly access the power of machine learning to deliver a perfect fit for customers, optimize e-commerce performance, and add risk-free retail intelligence to their operations. We work with major global retailers and brands such as Asos, Puma, Zara, Canada Goose, Hugo Boss, The North Face, Tommy Hilfiger and many more!


What The Role Involves

  • Prioritize tasks and orchestrate implementation of new features

  • Improve existing architecture and introduce new ideas to ensure scalability of the system (>1 million requests per minute)

  • Own cloud infrastructure and ensure its 24/7 reliability

  • Identify problems with development processes and ensure that they're addressed

  • Train team members and ensure that they realize their potential

  • Enforce existing coding standards (consistency, efficiency, documentation, test coverage, etc.)

  • Participate in actual coding and code reviews (primarily Golang and Node.js)


What We're Looking for in You

  • Experience in leading a team

  • Relevant Computer Science degree

  • Strong fundamental knowledge in data structures and algorithms

  • Experience with Golang / C / C++ is a plus

  • Experience with Node.js is a plus

  • Knowledge of Linux / Unix systems is a plus

  • Experience with cloud system (Google Cloud / AWS / Heroku / Microsoft Azure) is a plus

  • Familiarity with a Git workflow is a plus

  • Experience with MySQL or PostgreSQL is a plus

  • Innovative and self-motivated, with strong problem-solving skills

  • Fluency in English


What We Offer You

  • A competitive salary / remuneration package

  • Hands-on experience building a revolutionary e-commerce product

  • A spot in our smart, creative and motivated international team

  • Daily breakfast and lunch plus regular team events


Why We’re Different

We're not sitting around wondering what the product is and burning other people's money while expecting everyone to work ridiculous hours for little reward. We're profitable, organised, and already providing a unique solution that delivers huge value to our partners while helping millions of people shop better online.

If you're excellent at what you do and want to apply those skills to solving a genuinely hard problem together with a great bunch of people, you've come to the right place. To take the next step, send us your CV and a brief message explaining why you’re the perfect fit!
