Back-End Engineer

We are looking for an experienced and proactive Back-End Developer to join our Setapp web team. 

Setapp is a web+desktop service which lets the user get unlimited access to the library of applications right on their Mac. For a subscription fee, it gives you the opportunity to use all these quality apps you've always wanted to try out — without the need to buy and install each app individually. 

Setapp was created just 2 years ago (you won’t have to work with old legacy code), and it's growing fast, so we need one more engineer to help us move even faster. 

You will get the opportunity to implement your own ideas, creating new features and improving existing product with a team of 6 other awesome back-end engineers. Some of our web services are written in PHP (Laravel 5, Lumen, Pure PHP, Doctrine ORM) and some in Python (Tornado), so you'll get to work with both languages if you want to.

  • Create and assist in a new Setapp features development
  • Optimize the platform to make it faster and more efficient
  • Improve the existing product, communicate with technical support to resolve code issues
  • Take active part in technical development of the product by proposing ideas and improvements (like building the system to defend our services from DDOS-attacks, system for internal events processing)
  • At least 5 years of development experience with PHP

  • Strong knowledge of OOP, Design Patterns, SOLID
