  • You love working together with customers and take responsibility for your and your team's work.
  • You are a doer, proactive, and can anticipate technical and organisational issues because you know.

  • You like to work in a startup environment, but feel comfortable also in the enterprise world.
  • You are willing to become an expert for Kafka and event-streaming (with our support).
  • Beneficial: You have experience with additional programming languages like Python, Typescript or Go and technologies like Kafka, Kafka Streams, Flink, Rx, RabbitMQ.
