Who we are
Over the course of the past five years we’ve grown to a business of over 1500 Instaboxers united by a single purpose; providing the smoothest shipping experience possible. We’re fast, both in terms of parcel delivery and when it comes to growing our business. As we continue to expand, the complexity of Instabox grows in parallel. With that in mind, we are now looking for a Backend Developer to help us govern our journey ahead.

What you will be doing
As a Backend Developer at Instabox you will be working in an agile cross-functional team with a clear mission and problem space to solve. All of our teams are highly collaborative and we’re looking for people who thrive on working closely with other engineers to solve hard problems. Together with stakeholders and project managers, you will design APIs and create applications that are used by all branches within the company and our customers.

Our engineers make some of the most important decisions for the company and our products. We’re looking for people who want to get things done and have an impact. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to exercise real ownership of the services that are owned by your team. 

It's a Backend role in a hyper-growth tech company, with all that it entails. When you join us, you’ll have a part in deciding the technologies that we use. From day one you’ll get to work with:

  • Node.js
  • MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Redis
  • Terraform

Depending on your profile and preferences there is also fullstack positions where you also would be working with:

  • React
  • TypeScript/JavaScript
  • Design Systems

Who you are
 At Instabox we value individuals who are keen to learn, and your eagerness to develop your own skill set will undoubtedly be your strongest asset when joining us. If you are a really skilled problem solver who loves coding and making complex things work, then this is the place for you. Beyond that we imagine that you would have some of the following points on your resumé:

  • At least two years experience in a backend or fullstack role
  • Experience with JavaScript/Node.js
  • PostgreSQL and/or MongoDB experience (or equivalent database technologies)
  • Basic understanding of Terraform and Debian/Ubuntu (any Linux distro would apply)
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English

If this is you then we can’t wait to meet you.

We offer you..
 ..the chance to be part of something truly amazing. We can promise you that you will be challenged, pushed to develop your skill set and have the opportunity to work with great and smart colleagues. The journey ahead is what excites every Instaboxer working here today and we are just getting started. Then there is the compensation package, engaged manager, benefits, centrally located office etc. but we’ll get to that in due time.
