The Senior Backend Engineer role

To continue our quest for greatness, we need to find professional, passionate, and talented developers who can work fast and think outside the box – while always keeping an eye out for the details. This year's goals include improving our multi-tenant architecture and creating a brand new GraphQL API.

Centra provides the infrastructure for brands that want to sell globally and our team works with a global approach at its core. We build solutions and solve problems across time zones and believe that perspectives from different backgrounds/cultures drive innovation. As a Backend Engineer at Centra, you’ll have a direct impact on our product and its future success – no matter where you’re from. 

What we’re looking for

  • Someone ambitious. We are all ambitious and our goal is to build a world-class product.
  • Good understanding of modern PHP 8 and modern programming in general. GO is a plus.
  • Passion for writing beautiful, minimalistic code that is easy to understand and maintain.
  • Passion for performance and optimization.
  • Strong analytical skills and problem-solving skills in general.
  • Team spirit and a good eye for detail (useful for code reviews!)

Our Tech-stack

  • PHP 7.4/8.3
  • Golang
  • TypeScript
  • MySQL
  • ElasticSearch
  • Redis

We use the following tools and platforms:

  • GitHub/GitLab
  • AWS (Lambda, SQS, S3, etc...)
  • DigitalOcean
  • Cloudflare
  • Terraform
  • k6
  • …and more


We have multiple teams working on different products. You may have a strong preference for some technologies or products, so based on the interview and your feedback you will have an opportunity to join a team that is right for you. 

All teams work within the boundaries of the Scrum framework. If you like to do pair programming or apply other techniques, you are welcome to do so. We try to avoid having long meetings (or having a lot of them) and we put a lot of focus on fast and efficient communication inside the team (Slack, Google Meet, face-to-face).

Our Benefits

  • Luxmed medical insurance plan to keep you healthy
  • Sport card and a pack of fitness buddies to join you on your journey to getting fit and strong

Feel at home

  • Casual dress atmosphere. Wear whatever makes you feel good.
  • We love animals, so from time to time you can also take your animal companion to the office
  • Regular table football tournaments and lunch break face-offs
  • Team-building events and friendly afterworks
