Full-stack Software Engineer Java & React (m,f,d)

Job description

We are looking for an experienced Full-stack Software Engineer to join our Order Management Team at zooplus, Europe’s leading e-tailer for pet food and pet supplies. With an annual double-digit growth rate, we have already successfully rolled out our business model in 30 European countries and we are expecting further sustainable growth in European e-commerce.

We are responsible for the core order lifecycles in the company like managing order status and order status transitions, orchestrating order processing chain, or providing transparency for order status changes and change histories

Here are some of the main things that make me feel good about my team and our work environment that I am sure will be interesting for you:

  • Scrum is our way of working, and we feel like an agile environment is not only inside the team, our managers also believe in it and the organization is also already aligned to it.
  • We work in small self-organized teams where you will have the opportunity to grow in your professional career.
  • The environment is very friendly and sometimes we do some activities together after work and also of course with other teams. Moreover, there is no strict dress code here so you can come in a simple T-shirt. Of course, check the weather forecast beforehand 😊
  • We are used to doing pair programming, brown bag sessions, and learning from each other. This way we can share knowledge between us.
  • We deliver value by developing new features, maintaining existing products, and improving all the infrastructure we need for it, so we also would like to have a colleague that likes to be cross-functional.
  • We like to learn and deliver good quality products and for that, we think that continuous delivery, clean code , and DevOps mindset are the best way to do it.
  • English is the official language of the company, we have mates from other countries inside our teams or we call to synchronize with other teams located in Krakow or Madrid. Being able to communicate fluently in English is a must.

These are some of the technologies/frameworks/practices we use:

  • Java11+, Kotlin, Spring framework
  • TypeScript and React
  • Oracle or PostgreSQL
  • CI/CD with Jenkins pipeline
  • InfluxDB, Grafana, Sensu, ELK stack
  • Mesos/Marathon, Docker, Kubernetes
  • Amazon Web Services and cloud deployments (S3, SNS, SQS, RDS, DynamoDB, etc.), using tools such as Terraform or AWS CLI
  • Git, Scrum, Pair Programming, Peer Reviewing



  • 5+ years of experience in software development
  • Solid experience using for example Java11+, Kotlin , and Spring framework
  • Strong concepts of clean code principles
  • Experience with relational/non-relational databases
  • Knowledge and experience with React, NPM, and JavaScript (Angular experience is a plus).
