Your mission

Our mission

Industry resources like energy or water are becoming increasingly scarce on our planet. Sensorfact’s mission is to eliminate all industrial energy waste and help our customers operate more efficiently. As an integration engineer, you will be instrumental in this adventure by designing and developing the necessary services to integrate Sensorfact solutions with available systems in our customers' infrastructure. You will be the enabler of the action in a fast-growing, hardware-enabled SaaS company.

How will you do that?

You will be working on our product, a combination of IoT platform, SaaS product, Data Science engine, and tooling provider for our Consultants. You’ll interact with developers, data scientists, and product managers to ensure your solutions are solving problems that matter. This combination of different expertise across our engineering teams makes it essential to share your knowledge with your colleagues, discuss tech solutions, and help each other improve. This is what we mean when we say “Teamwork” is part of our values.

Our company and the products we develop are growing rapidly. We can’t afford to slow down with faulty and buggy code, so while building excellent features, you’ll create documentation for the systems you work on, covering them with pragmatic tests and avoiding technical debt. Code and process reviews will also be essential to your work because “Constant Improvement” is part of our values.

We believe that everything we do starts with the “why”. You can not own what you code without understanding and believing it. Our sprints are not collections of tickets. They are a step toward a bigger goal, and every coworker is responsible for the final result. This is why “ownership” is our fundamental value.

Technologies you will be working with

Our core platform is based on a microservices architecture using Node.js as the runtime environment platform. These microservices are deployed in Kubernetes (AWS is our cloud infrastructure provider). Our platform offers customers real-time data collection and analysis using a streaming architecture. We use Kotlin as the programming language for the services that interact directly with Kafka.

A significant portion of our business logic uses lambda functions. Data is accessible through GraphQL APIs managed by Hasura. Time series data is stored with ClickHouse, and for other data, we use a combination of Postgres(metadata)  and S3 (raw data). 

You do not need to be an expert in every technology mentioned here, but transparency is another of our values, so we want you to know what you are applying.
Your profile
You are perfect for the job because...  

  • 3 to 5 years of experience as a backend developer, preferably using a similar stack to ours. 

  • Have solid experience as a backend developer and knowledge of JavaScript/TypeScript/Java fundamentals. This also means you are familiar with professional software engineering practices (version control, merge requests, testing, code standards, CI/CD).

  • Proven track record designing and implementing integration between systems (as part of a team), like API and middleware layers.

  • Understand the operational concerns for cloud-based software deployments, preferably involving microservices. You know how to write code but also understand the bottlenecks and consequences of deploying it into a complex production environment.

  • You know the ins and outs of gathering project requirements with multiple stakeholders (including customers), and you enjoy interacting with them. You can communicate your ideas clearly and efficiently to reach and influence your audience.

  • It would be even better if you also worked with the specifics of our tech, like streaming architectures and GraphQL.

Why us?

You can play a crucial role in creating a smart and sustainable industry;

  • We have an open culture where you get a lot of freedom and where taking ownership is valued;

  • We like to have you around, but you also get the opportunity to work remotely (abroad) for up to 2 months per year;

  • You get to choose your laptop or opt-in for reimbursement when you bring your own;  #LI-MIFTAH
