Working at Apptension

Hi from Apptension! We are a high performing team of 80 individuals that cut through the noise. We hear our partners’ needs and develop them into products and experiences that last. Netflix, Spotify, Uber, Universal, LESS, UNIT9, and PepTalk are a few names with whom we brought products to life over the last 10 years.

People remain our DNA, when we validate our ideas they create potential for in-house built Teamdeck, Tech Radar or SaaS Boilerplate. Our culture happens daily as a cumulative of a thousand things and a thousand things over.

Now, you decide, because we are looking for a talented Backend Developer to join our team.


What's this position about?

  • work on various types of projects within international teams using agile methodologies
  • cooperate with our clients on a daily basis with proper support of a Project Manager or Technical Leader
  • work closer to the infrastructure with AWS cloud solutions
  • work with high traffic projects
  • develop web app logic using (mostly) Django or Flask (based on REST API architecture) and external APIs
  • be a part of our Development Team: we have almost 50 experienced and open-minded developers ready to share their knowledge (Devtalks, regular backend meetings every 2 weeks, workshops on technology)
  • cooperate with our clients on a daily basis with proper support of a Project Manager or Technical Leader

What do you need to have to join us?

  • minimum 2 years of experience working with Python, Django and Django REST Framework
  • good understanding of relational databases, like PostgreSQL as well as key value storages like Redis
  • hands-on experience of GIT version control system
  • knowledge of Docker and Docker Compose
  • experience with cloud solutions 
  • at least basic knowledge of Celery, CI/CD
  • ability to work with a project team - we are team-players and we’d like you to be one too :)
  • good command of English, both spoken and written (at least B2)

We also value a lot:

  • at least basic knowledge of Node.js, GraphQL, Google Cloud Platform, Shopify, Contentful
  • knowledge of AWS services and Serverless approach will be a big plus

Here's what we have to offer:

The Apptension Vibe is our favorite perk: we’re really into laughs, high fives and comfy clothes.
Other benefits include:

  • salary:
    CoE: 14100 - 19100PLN gross
    B2B: 17000 - 23000PLN net + VAT (includes 26 paid days off)
  • remote work - we work remotely, we also have a convenient office location in the center of Poznań too!
  • flexible working hours - we start between 8 A.M and 11 A.M
  • private health insurance + dental package
  • mental health support
  • 1500 PLN per year for training, courses, books of your choice
  • internal knowledge sharing: DevTalks, QATalks, DesignTalks, Knowledge Shot, Coffee Break
  • work in a place that creates a community of developers who share knowledge not only during internal but also external initiatives (PozTech Talks, Feel The Tech)
  • co-funded Multisport card
  • internal crowdfunding - each month our employees receive their budget they can use to execute different ideas - our Wishlist was awarded an "EB Kreator 2016" prize for the best internal employer branding campaign

Do you want to join Apptension?

Hi, I am Patryk and I’m more than certain that after you join Apptension (it goes without saying, right?) we will be seeing each other a lot. I’m the Head of Development here and I will be your mentor.

Our no. 1 rule?

First we need to be proud of what we’ve done, then we can sell it.Does it sound like your work ethic, too? If so, I’m looking forward to meeting you.

Instead of clichés and promises of fruit Tuesdays, I could find specific information about the company and the position I applied for. And you know what? All of this turned out to be true!
What makes me happy at work is the opportunity to test and implement various, sometimes crazy solutions – of course, as long as they impact the company's development and achievement of business goals.

At Apptension I met a lot of people with an amazing amount of experience and openness to new ideas. I learned different approaches to programming as well as had the opportunity to test different approaches to infrastructure. In the company I am not only involved in programming but also in technical recruitment and being a Team leader. Both of these two roles are very important to me from a development perspective.

I've decided to give it a try and it turned out to be the best decision in my professional career. With demanding, interesting projects and great people all around, Apptension helped me boost my skills - both technical and soft ones. For me, it is also important that it allowed me (and still does) to work a lot with AWS products.
