Transform the communications world! Location? You decide!

We’re proud (and excited!) to be transforming the global communications landscape through our Omnichannel Platform-as-a-Service (OPaaS). 

Our Birds choose where they work from in the region we’re hiring in — this could be from one of our MessageBird hubs (Amsterdam, Singapore or Bogota) or remotely so long as it’s within a complementary timezone.... Want to work from a rural retreat? Sure, no problem! How about a bustling city getaway for a few weeks? Go ahead!

We understand that “life happens” and give you the freedom to choose the best environment for you to “get s**t done”. We expand our flock without geographical restrictions. This allows us to attract and assemble an industry leading team from a huge variety of backgrounds & cultures,  making us more nimble, creative, and efficient!

Senior Software Engineer (PHP) – MessageBird 24sessions

EMEA, Remote

About 24sessions

24sessions is innovating customer interaction. We are a fast-growing scale-up in Amsterdam. Our SaaS solution is market leading when it comes to customer interaction via video-chat. We are helping organizations like Rabobank, ING, AEGON, NUON shape the future of customer satisfaction. Google, McKinsey & Rocket Internet recently elected us as one of the ten best B2B startups in Europe! 24sessions is been expanding rapidly and we want to remain the best video solution in the market. That’s why we’re looking for a talented developer to climb onboard and come with us on an incredible journey. 

About the role

Part of being the best video solution is making sure our virtual video-meeting environment runs like clockwork. Our product team consists of 2 squads. As Sr Backend Developer, you would become part of the squad responsible for product APIs and microservices that process data, integrate with external systems and leverage different AWS services (SNS, SQS, S3, RDS, ElasticSearch, etc) for better data accessibility and internal communication between themselves. The squad is also responsible for core backend libraries and microservices used throughout the whole SaaS solution. Some microservices are developed on PHP but majority of them are on GoLang, thus this would be a great opportunity for you to learn GoLang in practice and use it to create new, fast and reliable microservices.

Each microservice we build lives inside the Docker container, thus Docker is one of the essential tools every backend developer at 24sessions uses. As such, we are looking for someone with an exceptional feel for software development and PHP and keen to learn GoLang. We are looking for someone who is eager to use a fresh tech stack, open for innovation and gets energy from solving business problems with technology. We are offering you the opportunity to play a key part in a company that is truly innovating customer interaction.

What You’ll Bring

  • At least 5 years of relevant software development experience building and designing scalable, highly-available distributed systems.
  • Strong knowledge and strong programming skills in PHP. 
  • Experience with Symfony framework will be a plus
  • Experience with GoLang will be a plus
  • Experience in building integrations with enterprise systems
  • Strong experience working with relational and non-relational data stores (like MySQL, Cassandra & Redis).
  • Experience with high-throughput relational database deployments (good to have)
  • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes (good to have)
  • Practical and theoretical knowledge of development patterns, software architectures and design patterns (TDD, Event-Driven, SOLID, Hexagonal, DDD).
  • Knowledge of (cloud) infrastructure principles (load balancing, high availability, containerized services, database configurations) is a bonus. 
  • Excellent communication and written skills

What You’ll Gain

  • Work from anywhere
  • Generous stock options for all Birds
  • WFH set-up budget
  • State-of-the-art work gear
  • Learn from hundreds of the best minds in the business
  • Collaborate with diverse colleagues from over 55 countries (and counting)
