Senior Backend Developer (m/f/d)


Hey! We’re numa. We’re a young, diverse hospitality brand that’s offering uniquely designed apartments for the modern traveler. We specialize in the beauty of convenience and the delight of a design, with a totally digital guest experience and properties designed with intention. Need a weekend getaway? Want a place to work remotely? A temporary home in a new city? We’ve got you covered with our new category of lifestyle apartments.

Numa properties are located in the most exciting and vibrant neighbourhoods across Europe, so you’ll always have your finger on the local pulse. We offer consistent quality and an unmatched guest experience, no matter where your next trip takes you.

We’re not just disrupting the hospitality industry for our guests—behind the curtain, we’re shaking up the way hotels operate. We’ve built a proprietary technology and data platform that connects hospitality services, hotel operations and guest experiences into one powerful package, and we’re partnering with hoteliers across the continent to share our success.


Our solution is based on modern, serverless architecture. Powered by AWS (Lambda, SQS, SNS, DynamoDb, etc.) and using NodeJs, Typescript, NestJs and React on the frontend. It’s a robust, reliable solution that’s turning heads— and continuously evolving.
