Careers - Backend Developer: Peerio

Backend Developer (Intermediate/Senior)

Do you love distributed systems? Do you care about usable security? We have an amazing job for you on a friendly and inclusive team.

We are hiring an intermediate or senior developer to work on backend services, API design, and business intelligence. You’ll be working on fun distributed systems problems with Cassandra and Kafka as well as designing APIs and authentication systems for third party integrations into our platform.

While we do not require you to have deep knowledge of cryptography, we expect senior team members to have awareness of and interest in security best practices.




Our development team is partially remote (with a “remote first” process), so we expect candidates to have excellent written communication skills. We welcome remote applicants in time zones between EST and CST, though we will prioritize Canadian applicants.

Benefits include flexible schedule and location, as well as an employee stock option plan.

We encourage applicants for all positions to send a description of a recent project they’ve enjoyed working on, and a link to it if publicly available. We would also love to hear comments on usable security in general, or directly relating to our product. Applications may be in French or English.

All other formats will be rejected.
