Backend Architect (m/f/d)

Software Development

SimScale is an engineering simulation platform that is revolutionizing the way engineers, designers, scientists, and architects design products. The SimScale platform is accessible completely via a web browser, with an easy-to-use interface which supports numerous simulation types including Structural Mechanics, Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics.

By harnessing the power of the cloud for simulation, SimScale eliminates the hurdles that accompany traditional simulation tools: high installation costs, licensing fees, deployment of high-performance computing hardware, mandatory updates and maintenance. Users always have the latest version of SimScale.

Your Opportunity

We are currently looking for a Backend Architect (m/f/d), who will be leading a team of highly skilled back-end developers and therefore have strategic impact on the business. Our roadmap is bursting with opportunity for you to lead a team in solving intriguing challenges and tangibly impacting the customer experience. In this key role you will be responsible for developing and maintaining key parts of our back-end infrastructure; essentially, the backbone of the SimScale platform. Additional responsibilities include cloud cost management, software architecture, technical roadmapping, operations, and stakeholder management. If you have a passion for people management, very solid and hands-on technical knowledge, and want to build solutions to challenging problems this will be an opportunity for you.

What we expect from you

  • 10 years of professional experience in software development
  • 3 years of professional experience leading software development teams, either formally or technically
  • A degree in computer science or comparable studies, or equivalent professional experience
  • Familiarity and experience with the Java or Go ecosystems
  • Professional experience developing software-as-a-service, preferable on public cloud infrastructure
  • You live and promote a culture of technical ownership, effectively balancing operations, new developments and continuous improvement of legacy code in the components that your team owns
  • While you may have been managing people for several years already, you still consider yourself, in essence, a hands-on software developer, and keep the passion for the craft of software

What you can expect from us

  • A dedicated team with high expertise, and the opportunity for unrestricted personal growth - start your career with us and become a leader
  • An environment where your opinion and ideas matter - we will give you space to make an impact quickly through goal-oriented tasks and projects that leave space for creativity
  • A multicultural and inclusive work environment: we come from more than 35 different countries!
  • Manage when and where you work with flexible working hours and remote work around the globe
  • Benefit from health insurance (medical, dental, vision, disability, etc.), retirement insurance, a company pension scheme, paid sick time off, paid vacation, etc.
  • Enjoy freshly cooked lunches in our office every Wednesday
  • Feel positive about yourself with a subsidized gym membership in Munich, virtual meetups as well as internal wellbeing support
  • Choose from many developmental opportunities, training, language courses and tech talks
  • Relocation and visa support to ease your (and your family’s) relocation
  • Fun team events, visits to our Munich office if you are remote, and the opportunity to join our ESG or DE&I task forces

What’s next?

Your dedicated Talent Acquisition Manager for this role will be Sabrina. After an initial, positive conversation with her, you will get the chance to speak with the hiring manager Mariano. In the third step of the interview process we’d like to gain some insights into your skillset by sharing a task with you to work on. Upon successful evaluation, the technical panel interview will be your opportunity to elaborate on your technical expertise. Afterwards, get to know your future team members, learn more about the way we work, and share your career journey with us during the final panel interview!
