Your employer: Make Impact with High Tech Global Streaming Entertainment Platform!

This highly successful, growing B2C tech company with a global customer base has a clear vision: to make a global impact within streaming entertainment so that the lives of millions of people become more fun and easier. For years they have been one of the largest players in very tangible product development within a rapidly innovating market.
Even though they are medium in size, the platform already handles 40 to 50k concurrent users at peak times. This can only increase, and you can sink your teeth into it! Due to the huge demand for the product, you are needed to make them the largest streaming entertainment platform in the world. Here you have the unique combination of global impact on millions of people and still know all your colleagues by name!
Their international and informal corporate culture has a remote-first policy, so you have the freedom to work wherever you want! You can even work anywhere in the world for 4 months! You can also work at their beautiful office in Amsterdam. And if you move here from outside the Netherlands, you will receive a large relocation package! Here they believe that the smartest engineers excel if they are given freedom, so you can contribute ideas about architecture and design and there are self-managing teams with a lot of autonomy. Most innovations here come from the engineering team through close collaboration with the business in multidisciplinary teams!

Your role: Senior Backend Engineer Golang Amsterdam

In your role as Senior Backend Engineer Golang Amsterdam you can work in different teams, so you can choose from different solutions. For example, you can work on their elite core streaming engine, build cool features on their platform or deploy several brand new microservices. Due to the huge demand for the product, there are major challenges in scaling the backend systems, concurrency, latency, and the mission critical systems must be available 24/7.
Here you work in multidisciplinary teams with a lot of mutual knowledge exchange. One goal is to move to Serverless. This gives you the freedom to help with this if you think it’s cool to improve your cloud skills in addition to the backend! Here you get a lot of room to innovate, so you could also start a greenfield project with Rust, for example, if you have good reasons for doing so.
Their challenging roadmap includes a plan to double in size in the coming years, so there are many opportunities for growth.

What is required?
