We're looking for a Senior Software Engineer who will focus on developing the backend of our real estate applications: Otodom in Poland, Imovirtual in Portugal, and Storia in Romania.
We're a team of over 100 people building Real Estate marketplace platforms that make it easy for anyone to buy, sell or rent their apartments and houses. We are organized into 3 pillars: Consumers, Professionals, as well as, Unification and Opportunities, all working on unique technical challenges. Joining one of Real Estate's teams means developing a well-known marketplace with very high traffic (up to 6M requests per hour). You will work in a small cross-functional team (product, analytics, front-end, back-end, SRE) and report to an Engineering Manager.
During the recruitment process, we will discuss your experience and expectations to match you with the team where you will thrive.

Your day-to-day at OLX:

  • Work on the active development of new solutions (Golang), sometimes wrapping up the decoupling from legacy (large PHP monolith on EKS)
  • Craft architecture of new high-available microservices or serverless solutions, depending on the use case
  • Build new scalable backend solutions for internal and external users (100+ Lambda functions supporting monetization engine, architecture visualized with C4 diagrams)
  • Constantly improve your skills by attending internal and external workshops and conferences
  • Be part of a backend community that actually cares about the product and good practices

About you:

  • You are curious about how things work and you have the "you build it, you run it, you own it" mentality
  • You have extensive software development experience (ideally with Go)
  • You have a background working with relational databases as well as non-relational databases, e.g. MySQL, DynamoDB, Redis, Memcached, and a good understanding of cloud architecture, ideally AWS, and infrastructure as code tools like Terraform or CloudFormation
  • You can think from a user perspective — it's important not only to know how to solve a technical problem but also to understand why
  • You have experience in driving improvements and leading initiatives
  • You are a team player, experienced in cross-hub collaborations and discussions with various stakeholders
  • You mentored less experienced folks
  • It's great if you previously worked with GraphQL, Docker, Kubernetes, GitLab, and CI/CD

What we'll give you:

  • Base salary and an annual bonus: 15%

  • Training and conference budget and free access to Udemy courses
  • A benefits package with 300 points on the Mybenefit platform per month, private medical care provided by Luxmed, Ask Henry services, and much more
  • 100% remote work (as well as the possibility to work from our offices in Poznan and Warsaw)

What you can expect from the recruitment process:

  • The first step is a meeting with our Tech Recruiter: we are excited to get to know you and tell you more about OLX and the role
  • Next, you'll meet one of our Engineering Managers
  • Following that, there will be a technical check consisting of live coding tasks and System Design sessions
  • Finally, we will provide feedback and, hopefully, extend an offer
