Senior Backend Developer

About our company

We are a privately owned, fast growing tech company based out of Elisabethstraße 15, 1010 Vienna. In early 2015 Julian and Paul Zehetmayr, two brothers and the Co-Founders of apilayer, started building a diverse set of well performing, highly scalable micro-service APIs to help businesses and developers around the world automate complex processes, such as currency conversion, file conversion and different types of data validation. In the course of more than five years of existence each API product has become the market leader in its segment, with currencylayer leading the currency conversion API space, ipstack leading the IP Geolocation API space, mailboxlayer leading the email verification API space, and so on. At this time, we are operating nearly 20 market-leading microservice API products, with many more to come throughout the year 2020.

In 2016, apilayer expanded its reach into the SaaS (“Software-as-a-Service”) market, building invoicely, the now market-leading online invoicing platform, and eversign, an advanced eSignature platform on its best way to leading the European eSignature industry and set out to compete with global leader DocuSign overseas. In addition, in May of 2020 we will be launching Checkable, an uptime monitoring and hosted status page service, as well as a high-scale and innovative SaaS product in the SSL certificate space.

Today we are serving more than a million B2B customers worldwide with a lean, productive and flexible team of 20 people based in Vienna (Management, Marketing, Tech, Customer Support, Finance) and London (Sales).

Who we are looking for

We have always had more products than people, which is part of the reason we are now looking for somebody to take on a key role as product-focused Senior Backend Developer for our Software-as-a-Service products eversign and invoicely, as well as for other apilayer SaaS products to come.

What to expect

You will inhabit a core position in the company. In close collaboration with Paul, Julian, our CTO Dominik and the rest of the team you will be responsible for the technical development, maintenance and optimization of our SaaS platforms eversign and invoicely. Starting from the fundamental architecture and moving up to the implementation of single features in the back-end, you will take over responsibility and develop innovative, scalable and sustainable software solutions.
