The client

The company is a top global publisher of award-winning educational games and videos for children age 3-7.

They are looking for a highly motivated and skilled Senior Full-stack Engineer to join their team. They are entering a new phase of growth, and this is a unique opportunity to join a proven and maturing business and technology team, as a key member of the development team.

You’ll have solid commercial experience in developing complex applications using different programming code languages and frameworks both on front-end and back-end. The right candidate will be a start-up ready team player, willing to push the bar to achieve ambitious targets and not afraid to face new challenges. Hungry to learn and share his/her knowledge, passionate about programming and new technologies.

  • Strong development background in Java Spring Boot (min version 8)
  • Relational database design and optimization with SQL and Mysql
  • Deep knowledge of AWS infrastructure, especially Lambda and Dynamo DB
  • Experience of developing serverless architecture and high availability architectures
  • Experience of Node.js and frontend frameworks
  • Deep understanding of web security and content protection
  • Strong knowledge of APIs
  • Good working practices of producing clear and up-to-date documentation
  • Experience or the desire to mentor junior developers


It would be nice to have experience of video streaming architecture or in developing mobile applications with Unity, though they’ll happily get you up to speed if not. GraphQL experience would be a big bonus!
