Who are we?

Nanos is an online platform that makes placing paid advertisements a straightforward process accessible to any small & micro business around the world by delegating all the heavy lifting to our AI.

We are a privately owned Swiss startup based in Zurich - a dynamic fast-growing team of software engineers, UX designers, business experts and machine learning developers.

Who are we looking for?

As part of our growth we are expending our engineering team and for that, we are looking for Backend Developers to join us in our journey towards building great experiences and solving complex challenges.

We are looking for engineers with a minimum of 3 years professional experience who embrace the startup culture. A previous experience working as part of a distributed team would be a plus.

From a cultural point of view, we expect you to bring in a plus with you as we are an inclusive company that thrives from the diversity its employees bring in.

As a Backend developer, you will be contributing to some of the most important features of our platform. We expect our Backend Developers to be experts when it comes to building well tested, scalable and maintainable services.

As a Backend Developer we do not expect you to just translate requirements into code, we expect you to proactively contribute into the making of our product. to brainstorm with our Frontend/UI team as well as our Product team , we also expect you to think out of the box and suggest improvements to the experience we are building.

What will you do if you join us?

As a Backend developer you will be working on the different micro services that compose the Nanos Platform.

You will be part of an Agile team made of Frontend/Backend and Full stack developers.

You will not be expected to write backend code only as we do expect you to be able to jump in and help on the frontend side if needed (70% Backend, 30% Frontend I would say).

This position would be either remote or in our Zurich office.


What skills do we expect you to have?

With the exponentially growing number of frameworks and languages in software engineering we do not expect you to be an expert in all technologies used at Nanos but we do expect you to be a fast learner and an engineer with a critical and open mindset.
