Job Description

Come and join us on our mission to make FATMAP the Home of the Outdoors . . .the place where every adventure begins.FATMAP is expanding in Product Development. We are looking for an experienced person (f/m/d) to strengthen the team with their expertise.Build the future of outdoor adventure with us!FATMAP is a growing Outdoor Adventure Technology Company, building the leading platform for outdoor adventure. We are revolutionising the way people discover, plan, live and share their adventures. Our advanced 3D mapping technology, outdoor toolkit and curated adventure index is used by top professionals and a fast growing community of outdoor enthusiasts, to enjoy better, safer adventure. 

Who – experience and mindsetTo bring FATMAP to life we maintain a complicated stack combining mapping and 3D rendering into our front-end web and mobile apps. Mapping and rendering are handled by separate teams, of which the product team is the only customer. The product team is responsible for serving adventure content, handling authentication/authorisation (including 3rd party services like Strava/Garmin), payments, and delivering a rock-solid front-end product in close collaboration with our PMs and Designers. Our web and mobile apps are served by a single Federated GraphQL gateway, combining multiple Rails-based GraphQL endpoints into a single API.

We are looking for somebody who is comfortable diving deep into all the parts of our product backend stack. This includes our Postgres (with PostGIS extension) database layer as well as the application layer which is deployed as microservices and written in different languages, such as Ruby, Go and TypeScript. You will take end-to-end responsibility for developing new features, designing and updating internal data schemata as well as exposing well defined APIs to our frontend applications.

Are you always looking behind the scenes, trying to understand how things work? Do you have hands-on experience creating functionality in a distributed system, consuming cloud services, designed to cope with shortcomings, failures or outages? Would you be excited to work on such topics in a growing, smart and eager company determined to reshape outdoor mapping? Do you love mapping and the outdoors and would like to shape a solution for the outdoors? Then FATMAP is the place to be!

See more detail on technical experience level below.

How – working herePeople at FATMAP have a lot of autonomy at work. We offer a largely flexible environment. At our working hubs in Berlin (DE), Vilnius (LT) and Chamonix (FR) you'll be able to meet up with your team mates to work on a project together or just spend some time in an office environment. We are mostly remote by nature, and hence value sync time strongly. We also value our hubs and trying to keep a balance. Still, you needn't worry about your calendar being full of regular meetings. You work with bleeding edge technology, use and run them in development and production. You are enabled to actively create and contribute to processes and ways of working.

This also requires you to be able to work independently. You need problem solving and debugging skills, and a good dose of pragmatism.

What – responsibilities

  • Design, develop and maintain the client-side backend services
  • Take quality personally, functional and non-functional
  • Debug and resolve errors and respond swiftly to user feedback
