reMarkable is a Norwegian tech company on a mission to help people think better in a distracted world. In what feels like no time at all, we've gone from a small startup to one of the fastest-growing tech scaleups in Norway.

Following the successful launch of reMarkable 2, which was named one of TIME's top 100 inventions of 2020, and our new subscription service, Connect, in 2021, we've set exciting growth and product development goals for the coming year. To help us get there, we need new colleagues ready to make a real difference through their work – which is where you come in.

About the role

reMarkable is growing and we need more talented developers to help us with our ever-increasing customer base. On that note, we are now looking for a Senior Backend developer to join our Store team in Oslo.

At reMarkable we have two main web applications; where we showcase our products to the world. This is our biggest sales channel and has millions of visitors every month. On our users manage their account, devices, integrations and subscriptions. To be able to give our customers the best possible experience, we need people who can design state-of-the-art backend architectures from scratch that supports these two applications.

As a Senior Backend Developer, you will be a part of our Cloud unit of 20 people and work closely with a broad range of disciplines to ensure that we have a robust, scalable and modern platform that is ready to tackle all of the future commercial initiatives in the Market organization.

At reMarkable you will be given a high degree of responsibility and ownership of your technical solutions and a part of an ongoing initiative to rebuild our entire infrastructure to serve a massively expanding customer base on a global scale. We have a certain luxury of not having to deal with much legacy and outdated technology. Consequently, we work with modern tools, and are constantly re-evaluating our tech-stack to keep up with technology landscape shifts.

“Our mission is to make the website solutions and applications inviting, professional and intuitive. Technology is inherently scalable, and scalability is our most important tool for creating advanced functionalities that are perceived as both natural and flexible by all our customers.” - Jerome Ginss, VP Technology

  • Contribute to ensure our solutions are scalable and future-proof

  • Continuously integrate and deploy your code, monitor it in the live service and learn through data-driven feedback loops on how to improve it

  • Contribute to a great developer experience by always leaving code in a better condition than when you found it

  • Lead discussions related to architecture, technology and frameworks

  • Share knowledge within the team (i.e. code reviews), and with other developers in reMarkable (i.e. weekly department unit meetings)

In 2022, we will be working on:

  • Building microservices

  • Implementing user management

  • Managing payments and subscriptions

This is you!

In order to succeed as a Senior Backend Developer at reMarkable, we believe that you have a minimum of 3 years experience, preferably from different environments and using different languages. You love both learning new technologies and teaching others. It would be cool if you have experience with GCP, AWS and Azure, but we are very happy if you only have experience with one! We work a great deal in cross functional teams, so you should enjoy this way of working. You are not unfamiliar with payment gateways such as PayPal, Stripe or similar, and have previously worked on databases, SQL and/or NoSQL.

With your lengthy experience, you have gotten the confidence and know how to operate as a mentor and work on bridging the gap between departments. As for our position as a scale up, you find it challenging and exciting working in a dynamic environment, where we learn as we go.
