We are looking for an experienced Backend focused Engineer to join team Aqueduct, a team building our feed management solution for large-scale cross-platform social advertising. We are looking for a seasoned professional to enable the long-term growth and product success for the team. 

For our customers, providing e.g. product, hotel or flight data as feeds can unlock the potential of creative automation with image templates as well as many other nifty features of Smartly.io app. As we are supporting more and more social channels we want to develop our robust feed management platform to serve them all from a one-stop shop. For this, we are looking for a person familiar with solving complex technical problems, who can also seize learning opportunities and share them with the team.

Aqueduct has a backend written in Ruby on Rails which will be the main focus for this role. As the team will be starting new projects with some frontend work, you will have the chance to also learn and work with modern frontend technologies like React and Typescript.
