Backend developer

Open position:

Backend Developer

Would you like to join us in making math learning data-driven?

Full-time position in Lund, Sweden.

Have you thought about learning as a set of human behaviours? A positive learning outcome can be seen as a product of wanted behaviours. What makes this interesting from a technological perspective is that those behaviours can be operationalised and measured. Measurements can then be analysed and results can yield new objectives, hypothesis, learning instructions. When this process is automated, the efficiency of learning can suddenly leap decades in the right direction – straight into the digital era. This is what we are doing, and with proof from research showing that it works, we can focus on making learning individualised and fun. 

Are you a backend developer and find yourself intrigued by this project, you might be just the person we are eagerly looking for!

We are developing a data-driven learning game called Count on me! where the child takes the role of a hero – a young mathemagician – who is sent on an important mission to restore order in the realm of Numberia. We are looking for a backend developer to join our team.

We are a small indie studio located in the heart of Lund, surrounded by cobblestone streets, coffee shops and a smell of fresh bagels in the morning. As a tight 10 person team, we work closely and share perspectives from our different backgrounds and cultures, bringing game design, tech, design and learning psychology to the table.

The role – Backend developer

Our backend handles all information regarding learning data and student data. It stores information about student progress and prescribes training based on individual learning results. It works like an intervention where our game client continuously sends requests, asking for the next prescribed set of learning tasks. As a backend developer, you will work hands-on with our learning algorithm and other features that lay the foundation of our data-driven learning adventure.

In this role, you will work closely with fellow game developers, frontend developers to ensure we can support end user needs.

Responsibilities

  • Systems development and operations
  • Close collaboration with other teams throughout the feature development process
  • Building a scalable backend service that can support student learners across the world

Requirements

  • Experience working legacy code
  • Excellent English communication skills and team spirit
  • Experience from systems development using MS technologies (C#, .NET Core, Azure) and PostgreSQL
  • Experience from setting up and managing applications in Azure using Kubernetes
 
The position is planned to start as soon as possible.
