Pet Media Group (PMG) is a Stockholm-based startup that acquires, launches and develops market-leading pet marketplaces globally, with over 1.5 million animals finding new homes through our platforms every year. We are currently live in 5 different countries (UK, Sweden, Netherlands, Italy and Spain), despite only having launched 2 years ago. Here is an example of one of our apps: Pets4Homes.co.uk
The way pets find new loving homes has virtually remained the same for centuries, and we are on a mission to make that process more trusted, safe and convenient through innovative technology. We’re a young and ambitious team who have built unicorns in the past (e.g. Avito) and we are backed by some of Europe’s leading investors (e.g. Verdane and Otiva) who are early investors in leading companies such as Klarna, NA-KD, Apotea and Desenio.
Who are we looking for?
As part of our growth we are expanding our engineering team and for that, we are looking for back-end developers to join us in our journey towards building great tech and further growth.
As a back-end developer, we expect you to be familiar with building sophisticated architecture and have an in-depth understanding of the entire web and application development process. We’re looking for someone with 5+ years of experience in back-end engineering, ideally from our current tech-stack (see details further down)
What skills do we expect you to have?
Being part of a fast-growing startup, we are looking for engineers who are not afraid to build fast, fail fast and learn from their mistakes. We do not expect you to be a world-class expert in all technologies used at PMG but we do expect you to be a fast learner and an engineer with a critical and open mindset.
On the backend we use technologies such as: Node.js with Typescript, Elasticsearch, GraphQL, PostgreSQL, Knex, Docker, Serverless
Prior experience with one (or multiple) these technologies is definitely helpful & appreciated
While this is a Back-end role, you might be expected to jump in and do some minor changes on the front-end while working on various projects. Should you consider yourself to be full stack developer, then you are of course more than welcome to apply as well!
We expect all candidates to have working proficiency in English to be able to communicate with colleagues from our other offices.
What we offer
- The ability to join a rapidly growing business with a clear vision, where passion and energy exists in abundance
- A diverse team from various backgrounds - current team is located in Sweden, Germany, UK, Poland, Bosnia, Ukraine and Russia
- A unique opportunity to become a part of a rapidly growing (but already profitable) start-up where you would be instrumental in building our Tech department
- Competitive compensation and awesome benefits (in person or remote)
We very much look forward to your application, contact us if you have any questions!
