Lead Backend Engineer

Paris / Full-time

About us

Prediko is an inventory optimisation platform that helps brands like From Future, Kimai, and Tajinebanane predict their inventory needs to reduce stockouts, improve margins, and save time.
 
We are on a mission to transform the inventory optimisation experience by democratising access to predictive technologies for the growing & underserved community of small-to-mid-sized e-commerce brands. We are backed by Techstars New York and world class angel investors.
 
We're looking to strengthen our team with smart & passionate people that want to work in a young and ambitious company looking to disrupt a legacy sector. We welcome and prioritise the needs of people of all ethnicities, races, cultures, genders, and sexual orientations, and hope you’ll consider joining us!

About the role

You'll be joining Prediko's founding team. You'll be here at the beginning of a great story. You'll be Prediko. This is a pivotal role for our company, and you will be part of the foundation on which we'll continue to build our engineering organisation as we grow. As a Full-stack Web Engineer joining at this early stage, you'll be in a position to influence the direction of the product, the technologies and processes of the engineering team, and the culture of the company.

What you'll be building

You'll take ownership on the design and implementation of our database model and our cloud architecture. You'll help write and maintain efficient and secure APIs and you'll set up killer CI/CD pipelines. We're an early stage startup which means there is always an opportunity to step outside of the engineering comfort zone. For example, managing customer relationships, working on external documentation, and contributing to open-source communities we benefit from.

What we are looking for

  • You believe engineers must serve customers and not vice-versa.
  • You'll have a good experience with everything related to the word "database" (SQL and No-SQL). We're using mongoDB at the moment.
  • You're good at designing efficient API.
  • You have a strong opinion on technical and product topics, but you’re flexible and open-minded.
  • You've worked in a team before and built entire applications or features that customers loved.
  • You don't expect to see a list of tasks to do but a list of problems to solve.
  • You have experience in cloud architecture and deployment (AWS is a must).
  • You know that cloud run is not an actual cloud that runs but a serverless deployment tool.
  • You are not afraid of infrastructure or automation.
  • "You know that you do not know".
  • You're a python lover.
  • Benefits

  • All-expenses paid international company off-sites.
  • Have your birthday on us
  • Learning and development budget for books, courses, etc.
  • Other

    We're python lovers. That's being said the stack will evolve with the tools and languages you love. Also, this is just a bullet-list and you're not a bullet-list. The points won't necessarily all apply and that's fine with us! Please apply anyway. We're always keen to speak to people who connect with our mission and values
