Ataccama Product & Engineering is at the forefront of a transformative journey, transitioning from an on-premise enterprise solution to a fully managed multi-cloud platform. We cater to Fortune 500 companies with stringent security and compliance requirements. Simultaneously, our clients expect a user-friendly, rapidly deployable collaborative data management platform that seamlessly adapts to their organizational needs.

Your challenge:

  • Design, develop, and maintain back-end systems using Java and Kotlin, with a strong focus on Spring Boot applications.
  • Integrate and manage RESTful services, ensuring robust and scalable API development.
  • Work with graph databases, leveraging their capabilities to solve complex data-related challenges.
  • Handle asynchronous processing and manage message brokers such as RabbitMQ.
  • Implement unit testing and integration testing strategies to ensure high-quality software delivery.
  • Collaborate with product managers to understand product requirements and translate them into technical specifications. Take ownership of features and components from the design phase through to production deployment and operational support.
  • Engage in code reviews, offering constructive feedback in a supportive and collaborative manner to help peers improve and grow.

  • Our products are operated in AWS and Azure, so familiarity with these ecosystems and common managed services (e.g., Aurora Serverless, managed AKS, EKS..) is beneficial.
  • We orchestrate our services using Kubernetes, and your comfort with Kubernetes environments, Helm charts, and related technologies is welcome.
  • Your experience developing fully multi-tenant and distributed systems, as well as working with message queue services like RabbitMQ or Kafka, will be invaluable.

Our General Tech Stack:

  • Backend: Java, Spring Boot, Kotlin, GraphQL, jOOQ
  • Storage: Aurora, Postgres, Elastic, Minio
