Senior System Engineer

Work with customers, our partners and Backbasers in implementation and support projects around the globe. How would you guide them to success?

What you'll do

This is an exciting position where you will be exposed to a variety of environments and technologies within different organizations around the world. As a valued member of the team, you will be working closely with all disciplines such as BE Engineers, FE Engineers, QA Engineers, Solution Architects and Business Analysts on the successful delivery of Backbase software to our customers.

You design, develop and oversee the implementation of solutions that improve the production-readiness of our product. You help identify and resolve production issues... before we release them to our customers. Using your deep Java knowledge and Ops skillset, you push our test environments to their limits. Once you’ve pinpointed code or system-level application concerns, you work closely with Engineers to help them improve the quality of the Backbase deliverables; ensuring they are well-architected, secure, high-performance, highly-available, observable, resilient, operable and maintainable.

A Cloud-native, microservices architecture underpins our backend services and exposes our RESTful APIs. Our containerised applications are managed by Kubernetes on our Backbase-as-a-Service cloud offering, or at our customers’ private cloud.

You will become an expert in operating Backbase services. You are in close contact with our SaaS (Backbase-as-a-Service) and Customer Success teams plus customers and partners which leads to valuable input to improve our product in your collaboration with our R&D teams. With an ever-growing number of implementations, you will help to shape how Backbase services are run and validated.
