Fit Analytics — the world’s leading size advisor solution for online clothes shopping — is seeking a Full-stack Software Engineer (m/f/d) to join our Data Platform team to work on tools and systems powering the largest and most extensive data set in the industry. Your main focus would be improving and developing new and existing tools to support our various internal stakeholders in their daily work as part of our cross-functional Data Platform team.

    • Strong software development skills in Golang or JavaScript; additional experience with Ruby or Python is a plus 
    • Willingness to pick up new tools and languages, as our tooling ecosystem is heterogenous
    • Solid understanding and experience working with datasets in RDBMS and other storage technologies (No/NewSQL, Blob, etc.), for instance PostgreSQL, MySQL, BigTable, BigQuery or Google Cloud Storage
    • Spoken and written fluency in English with excellent communication skills

Your work environment

    • Being part of a closely-knit team, with most to all team members currently (because of the pandemic) working fully remote

    • Regular knowledge shares, pairing sessions, etc.
    • Communication via video conference (Google Meet) and Slack, with a focus on productivity and low distraction

    • A spot in our smart, creative and highly-motivated international company
    • A flexible remote work policy
    • Daily lunch in the office plus regular team and company events
