  • Work closely with front-end developers to integrate user-facing elements using server-side logic.
  • Manage and optimize server-side applications for speed and scalability.
  • Implement security and data protection measures.
  • Design and implement data storage solutions, integrating with AWS services such as DynamoDB, RDS, S3, and others as needed.
  • Collaborate with the team to identify and fix bottlenecks and bugs, and improve application performance.
  • Participate in code reviews to maintain high-quality code standards.
  • Stay informed of new technologies and update features to enhance application functionality.
  • Develop documentation and assist in setting development standards in collaboration with other team members.



  • Proven work experience as a Back End Developer or similar role, with a strong portfolio of projects in Node.js.
  • Solid experience with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and familiarity with AWS management and deployment tools.
  • Strong proficiency in JavaScript, including ES6+ syntax.
  • Knowledge of Node.js frameworks (e.g., Express, Koa, Hapi).
  • Experience with databases (e.g., MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL) and data modeling.
  • Understanding of server-side templating languages and CSS preprocessors.
  • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools, such as Git.
  • Familiarity with front-end languages (e.g., HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and frameworks like Angular, React) is a plus.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and the ability to think algorithmically.
  • Strong communication and teamwork skills.
