🔷 ABOUT THE TEAM
FINN.no is a hugely popular classifieds site in Norway. A million users each day visit our site! That is one of five Norwegians checking in to find their next job, flat, car, sofa, or maybe just browsing and dreaming of their next holiday. We have a brand and a mission that makes a significant social difference. We also have a cutting edge technical organization, we care a lot about our craft, always helping each other to become better at it.
FINN has a blameless culture, encouraging people to take action. If something goes wrong, we learn from it and move on. We believe that if we never fail, we don’t experiment enough. We test, we fail, and we learn. Also, we encourage you to have fun while doing it!
You will join a FINN Notifications team in Poland – this team is responsible for a notifications platform, pushing more than 100 million notifications each day. Many teams already use the Notifications platform as an essential building block to reach their business goals, and we believe its importance will only grow. We also own a frontend part of it.
The team consists of a Product Manager, Engineering Manager, one UX, and three developers. Pair programming and thorough code reviews are a part of our daily work.
Some key technologies we use: Kotlin for backend, React for frontend, Kafka for communication between services, Postgres DB, Kubernetes, Travis, and Google Cloud Platform.
You will collaborate closely with the Product Manager, UX, and other teams to understand the needs and requirements. Your goal will be to design, develop and improve our services to provide a smooth notifications experience – for our users to perform successful transactions and for our developers to create and measure effects of notifications.
