Senior Back End Developer

Are you the next Senior Back End hero at Star Stable? Star Stable is growing rapidly, and with increasing complexity in our development infrastructure, we’re now in need of a Senior Back End Developer to strengthen our team. You own the project you work on, with both the responsibility and the freedom in how to solve it. We work frequently in pairs; but not always. That part is largely up to you! This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced Developer who wants to have a lot of influence and contribute to the challenges within back end in a social and helpful team.

WHAT IMPACT WILL YOU HAVE?

By making our web site and launcher even better for our players you'll play a huge role in the overall success of our game!

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE AS A BACK END DEVELOPER AT STAR STABLE? 
  •   Exploring new technologies, maintaining and make changes to live applications as well as working on features and launcher
  • Working (at times in pair with someone) with the whole life cycle of a task, e.g. understanding the problem, evaluate possible solutions, design according to target architecture, implement by coding and deployment of solution
  •  A lot of interaction with everyone in the organization
  • Growth in your position as all devs rotate between tasks to learn and evolve in their role
  •  Lots of laughs together with a great team of diverse people. We often have lunch together and a fair amount of fika, too!
Who are you? We hope that you have at least a couple years of experience in the following areas:
  •  Programming (eg Python, Ruby)
  • Back end frameworks (e.g CherryPy, Django, Flask or Tornado)
  • Web development 
  • SQL 
  • GIT or other DVCS
It would also be nice if you have experience in:
  • HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript 
  • Unix/Linux environments

 We look for passion and skill; experience and genuine interest. We love what we do; you should too!
