  • Develop internal and external-use APIs.
  • Conceive new features in collaboration with the frontend, privacy and data science teams.
  • Contribute to our data anonymization core.


  • Experience, at senior level, in building backends, especially in Python. Our stack is Python/FastAPI/SQLAlchemy.
  • Knowledge of software for processing data at scale like Spark, Flink, Beam, Kafka or any of the offerings from cloud providers, is highly desirable.
  • Knowledge of how systems like the Web work and work at scale, and how to make our product elegant, scalable, and interoperable.
  • Knowledge of cloud providers, their tools and how to operate them will be very useful in the job.
  • Solid software development practices and knowledge (e.g. tooling, design patterns, algorithmic complexity)
  • Clear communication in English. The job requires talking daily with our engineering and commercial teams as well as with customers from time to time.


You will join an international and dedicated 15-person team in a growing startup, with plenty of opportunities for impact and personal growth. We are a diverse team of curious and open-minded people, working from Germany and elsewhere in Europe. We enjoy working together and value respect, honesty, and openness.
