Backend Developer

Zowie solves the biggest challenges of companies in the field of customer support. We use artificial intelligence to automate communication on chat channels (e.g. Zendesk, Salesforce, Messenger, WhatsApp, chat on a website). We provide an all-in-one, modular tool designed for building responsive, fast, and highly customizable chatbots. Despite its many functionalities, it does not require coding experience. 

We love challenges. The more difficult something is, the more motivation we have to deliver it. And we have a proven record of success. We surprise the market. We surprise our competitors. But most importantly, we surprise our customers in a highly positive manner—and that’s how we acquire new ones. Among our customers, you will find the most recognizable global brands from the USA, UK, Europe, and even Australia. And we’re just getting started!

One of our customers said that our platform is the Apple of chatbot builders. To keep up with our rapid pace of development and to live up to such a title, we would like to invite a great Backend Developer to join us.

What you’ll do:

  • Build new products in Scala; maintain and enrich existing ones
  • Solve problems with functional programming
  • Improve our codebase either by refactoring existing code or adapting the most recent, popular libraries and techniques
  • Work in an agile team, aware not only of fields that lie within their own expertise but also the business and infrastructure spheres (following the Dev-Ops philosophy)
  • Write code that is: easy to test and maintain, scalable, and testable
  • Review code of your team members and across teams
  • Suggest and implement improvements to our applications’ architecture
  • Promote good practices in engineering

  • Very good knowledge of Scala, with at least 3 years of experience
  • Experience with functional programming libraries like Cats, Fs2, ZIO, Http4s, etc.

  • Fluency in using GIT
  • Working experience with Docker and web app builders 
  • Sense of ownership of delivered code and our systems

  • A chance to further develop your people and business skills
  • A startup atmosphere and work under true partnership rules
  • Flexible working hours – we believe that having common working hours is a fantastic way to work together, but we limit them to 4 hours per day
  • An international environment with smart tech and business partners – we know that we are currently building a core team that will soon form the base of a large international company
  • Remote work – we are based in Warsaw (Poland), but we give you as much flexibility as we can – you can work from wherever you want (we also have an office in Krakow);
  • B2B contract with unlimited holidays – we trust each other and we do not count days – it’s about delivering, not about reported hours
  • A budget for courses and books – we care about your development
