(Senior) Backend Engineer (m/f/x) – Payment & Billing

XING is the social network for business professionals with millions of members all over the world. Help us shape the future of work – for a better working life!

The international Payment & Billing team consists of business analysts, developers and software test engineers. We closely work with product teams to put together sales models, provide the end-customer payment infrastructure and ensure a smooth billing process.
We do this within a complex environment involving a number of internal and external technical interfaces where human collaboration is key to achieving success. Join our team and get involved in lots of exciting new projects.

A challenging task

  • Be part of our software development team in an agile environment
  • Discuss and implement innovative solutions closely with your team our business analysts as well as internal and external partners
  • Develop in a high risk area with sensitive data which goes beyond the scope of a standard Ruby on Rails app
  • Develop and maintain our application in Elixir
  • Live the complete development cycle including writing automated tests, participating in code reviews and performing deployments
  • Work on scalable, high-availability services

A convincing background

  • You care about the craft of software development and strive to build testable, predictable and simple code
  • You are able to write clean code in a Ruby on Rails environment
  • You are able to code in Elixir
  • You want to tackle the engineering challenges that come with building systems at scale (highly available, low latency and high throughput)
  • You are curious and interested in learning new languages and frameworks
  • You have a good sense of humour and keep calm in difficult situations
  • You value transparency, honesty, humility and helping your teammates grow

An inspiring environment

We work in diverse, small and cross-functional teams, and we value the principles underpinning the agile manifesto.

We have offices in various parts of Europe (Hamburg, Munich, Vienna, Barcelona, Porto and, more recently, Valencia). XING employees come from more than 30 different countries and bring their collective experiences and culture to work every day. Some of us studied computer science, while others come from other fields or don't even have a degree-level qualification. The key common ingredient is a willingness to learn and grow.

We try to make working in cross-location teams with as little friction as possible. We believe in flexibility when it comes to choosing when and where you deliver top-notch work.

In your team, you'll not only interact with colleagues who have various technology backgrounds (backend/frontend/iOS/Android engineers), you'll also work with product owners, designers, and data scientists. We work with Scrum or Kanban in our teams (depending on the team's choice), conduct regular retrospectives, and have agile coaches who mentor the team to ensure things are done in line with best practices.

We support continuous learning.

Every engineer at XING has an annual conference allowance. We also offer regular internal training sessions, meetups and brownbag lunches throughout the year, as well as the opportunity to speak at conferences - we'll support you where we can. Other than training sessions, you'll have ample opportunity to grow and learn at work. We work in cross-functional teams, giving you the opportunity to learn and contribute to areas in which you might not yet be an expert. We'll always support you in growing your career, be it moving into a new technology stack, learning leadership skills or gathering enough knowledge in a certain field so as to become an expert.

These training sessions are complemented by fun hack weeks held three times a year where engineers are free to choose whatever they want to work on and learn new technologies. Sometimes they build wacky stuff like arcade machines or karaoke systems. Sometimes they explore many up and coming technologies: using Elm when building frontend applications, implementing parsers using Haskell, exploring Istio for microservices infrastructure, building Ethereum smart contracts using Solidity, and much more...
