Aircall is a place where voices are valued.

Backed by over $220 million of investment since 2015, we create technology that fuels accessible, transparent and collaborative communication to empower our base of 14,000+ customers (and growing) to make authentic, human connections.

This team will design, develop and operate the platforms used by all backend development teams to expose a framework based on GraphQL APIs (AWS, AppSync, Typescript) and authentication stack (Lambda, Cognito).

Best practices, evangelization, and mentoring in your team and across the whole of Engineering will be part of your day to day job. 

Quality, excellence, and agility drive our delivery processes and you will help us level these up being data driven with metrics, alarms and proper observability.
