Senior Backend Developer – Ads Import Team

We are looking for people to join our tech team in Spain (or willing to relocate). We embraced a remote-first approach that allows you to work from anywhere within Spain or from our offices.

LIFULL Connect is a global marketplace group that operates more than 250 vertical search sites in 63 different countries and 24 different languages. We are one of the world’s largest aggregation players in the Jobs, Cars and the biggest Real Estate aggregation network in the world – by far.

Our mission is to connect people and help them make some of the biggest decisions in their life. We are a tech company with plenty of opportunities to grow and where you can really have an impact.

We are an innovative team of creative people and we are looking for team players that are humble, self-responsible, curious, passionate and willing to roll up their sleeves.

Our team context:

You will be joining our Listings team, whose goal is to develop and maintain the tools that keep our websites fed with top quality content (classified ads), so that our users can find their new home, car or job.

Our team is responsible for the backend that powers content feeding (ingestion, processing, quality controls, etc.) for a number of websites from our inventory, which account for tens of millions of visits every month.

We love good code that does what it’s intended in the simplest possible way, that can be tested and can be easily maintained. We firmly believe in teamwork, collective code ownership and we like to push ourselves to do better while enjoying the journey!

What’s a plus:
