For our team in Berlin we are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer Node.js / TypeScript (d/f/m) within our newly formed Transactional Business Unit! Our mission is to enable our customers to do the mobility changes that they need (buying and selling of vehicles, including concerns on the way like financing and insuring a car) completely online, and to enable the more that 40.000 car dealers in Germany who are our partners to compete in this increasingly digitised market by providing them top-in-class tools and processes. This specific role is in the Online Buying team which builds products that integrate our transactional products in the mobile.de Core experience.Your role:
Build the next generation of car online buying. You'll build the infrastructure for mobile.de from the ground up, having a huge and direct impact by shipping your work to users on prod daily
Create a robust and scalable backend. Build performant REST API with Redis cache, MongoDB, 3rd party integrations, product analytics, and service monitoring
Use modern web tech and influence the stack. The backend is Node/Express, the frontend is React, and we use TypeScript across the full stack. As we build out our stack, you get to make critical choices and lay the foundations. While frontend doesn't have to be your forte, you may implement basic UI components based on Figma mocks and our design system
Self-direct your work and co-own the product. You're a technical founder type and will have autonomy and responsibility. You'll be involved in shaping the roadmap and will own mobile.de's exploding backend needs
Highly productive while producing quality code. You enjoy pushing out features in a pragmatic and maintainable way. You know when to use duct tape and when to lay a foundation
Curious and quick learning. We don't expect you to have experience in every technology we use, but to learn and be productive quickly. Owning several repos and jumping into all of them doesn't scare you
Design sensibility. While you'll co-craft the interface with top designers and frontend engineers, we expect you to have a knack for great UX, such that you feel if something is off and can flag it, or better yet, polish it
Attention to detail while pragmatic. We strive for few slips in code, Git hygiene, and clear written communication — all while remaining low-ego and simply focusing on solutions

As a driver of change for growth and innovation, we became more than just a platform. We are an ecosystem of skilled and entrepreneurially minded people, a community to unite sellers and buyers. As the No 1 marketplace in Germany we closely cooperate with a powerful network of around 42,000 dealers and connect them with almost 17 million unique users per month.
Mobile.de is part of Adevinta: a global online classifieds specialist and sustainability leader with 40+ products in 15 countries.
