We are a small team passionate about everything backend, using a variety of technologies to bring a stable and high-performance experience to our users. We are looking for someone that shares the same passion and vision to create and innovate and has a “thing” for automation.
We are still in growth stage and hence, there is no lack of engaging projects. For example, microservicing. As Piktochart continues scaling to handle millions of users at the same time, we need specialized services to handle specific parts of the application.

It is also important to optimize efficiency of resources or have zero tolerance of down time to build in the direction that the company is headed for.
We are using Golang, Python on top of Ruby in order to keep pushing what’s possible at Piktochart. A project that showcases our motto of “Not sticking to what is possible but innovating beyond what’s possible” include server side rendering, which is rendering a high definition and pixel perfect image of WYSIWYG on a browser, an internal endeavor that took us over a year to perfect! In the world, due to browser constraints, all renderers had their pros and cons and we attempted to solve the problem by spending a year to change our product as well as come up with a solution.
