Junior Backend Developer (m/f)

Working Student | Intern

Build the world’s most advanced cloud simulation platform.

Who are we?

At SimScale, our mission is to help engineers worldwide to develop their products faster, easier and better.

We are fascinated by the potential of simulation technology and work hard to make it easier and more accessible than ever before.

To that end, we are building the world’s first generic, completely web-based engineering simulation platform – bringing high performance
computing technology to the fingertips of every engineer and scientist in the world.

At SimScale you have the opportunity to shape the next generation of simulation technology together with a team of highly talented engineers,
mathematicians, and computer scientists!

Since 2012, we have been working vigorously on a new method for the world of high-performance computing. Our cloud platform enables customers to access powerful engineering simulation technology – using a web browser. This provides a broad target group – ranging from large corporations to individual engineers – with the ability to develop their products faster, better and more cost-efficiently.

About the job

Your mission at SimScale is to support the backend team in continuously improving and extending the platform that serves our users. That means, taking over clearly defined development tasks in an increasingly complex service-oriented system, written mostly in Java. You will also act in a role supporting our QA and user success team by tracking down the source of bugs or anomalies in our system.

Our product is unique in giving you insight into a complex service-oriented system in the interdisciplinary field of computer science and engineering.

What we expect from you (must-haves)

  • Solid software development experience in a non-trivial project, either at university or in industry
  • Some  experience or knowledge about RESTful cloud services and/or microservices
  • Strong sense of code quality: you follow design patterns and the principles of clean code
  • Curiosity, drive and persistence in understanding a complex system

What we would like from you (nice-to-haves)

  • A completed or ongoing course of studies in Computer Science with the focus on software engineering or a comparable degree with corresponding professional experience
  • Being able to work productively with a Linux system
  • Being involved in open source projects

What you can expect from us

  • An international and enthusiastic team with high technical expertise, dedication, and lots of fun
  • Attractive startup atmosphere: flat hierarchies, independent work environment
  • Fun team events and a calm and professional working environment
  • The chance to learn a lot in a short time
  • Provide thousands of engineers with the next generation of simulation technology and help them to be better at what they do

Would you like to work in an “engine room” which means, working on the core of a cutting edge distributed web application, chasing bugs or designing effective, efficient, and elegant solutions? Then we look forward to receiving your informative application via our online application system. Ms. Stefanie Rausch will be happy to be at your service should you have any questions, even over the phone: +49 89 8091327-54
