We’re looking for a great Lead Engineer to join a team in Krakow that creates Marketplace as a Service and also develops their own platform using this product. It is a members-only service that allows customers to buy in 100+ online stores. This service provides the best prices, fast and free shipping and free returns. Almost 100 tech people in the Company’s Headquarters in Chicago and 15 in the office in Krakow work on a product development.

They are also introducing Kotlin and TypeScript to their stack. The team is really strong and the tasks are challenging as hell, but I can promise you that if you try, you’ll like it!
You will be driving technology and architecture decisions across the code stack, as well as developing production code. The company will be looking to you to help create, test and deploy solutions that integrate seamlessly, all at scale.
