Ahrefs is looking for a backend developer with deep understanding of networks, distributed systems, OS fundamentals and taste for simple and efficient architectural designs.
In this role, be prepared to deal with petabytes of live data, highly-optimized custom storage engine and Linux on a daily basis.
These requirements stem naturally from our approach to development with fast feedback cycle, highly-focused personal areas of responsibility and strong tendency to vertical component splitting.
Ahrefs does not engage with agencies or third party recruitment solutions for the roles we hire for. If at any point we need help, we'll let you know!
We are a small team that strongly believes that better technology leads to better solutions for real-world problems. We worship functional languages and static typing, extensively employ code generation and meta-programming, value code clarity and predictability, and constantly seek to automate repetitive tasks and eliminate boilerplate.
We are guided by DRY and follow KISS. If there is new technology that will make our life easier, we'll give it a try. We rely heavily on open-source code (as the only viable way to build maintainable system) and contribute back. We occasionally blog on tech.ahrefs.com.
Our motto is first do it, then do it right, then do it better
