Ahrefs is looking for a backend developer with deep understanding of networks, distributed systems, OS fundamentals and taste for simple and efficient architectural designs. Our backend is mostly implemented in OCaml with some D and C++.

In this role, be prepared to deal with 25 petabytes of live data, OCaml and Linux on a daily basis.

Basic Requirements:

  • Proficiency in OCaml
  • Knowledge of D or C++ is a plus

The ideal candidate is expected to:

  • Independently deal with bugs, schedule tasks and investigate code
  • Make well-reasoned technical choices and take responsibility for them
  • Understand the whole technology stack at all levels: from network and user-space code to OS internals and hardware
  • Handle full development cycle of a single component i.e. formalize task, write code and tests, setup and support production, resolve user requests
  • Approach problems with a practical mindset and suppress perfectionism when time is a priority
  • Write flexible, maintainable code and adapt to post-launch requirements/tweaks

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.

If your preference is leaning towards making the web functional and working on user-facing stuff, you may want to consider our ReasonML position instead.

What You Get

We offer:

  • Competitive compensation package
  • Informal and thriving work atmosphere
  • Above-average perks and fringe benefits
  • [Office] First-class workplace (hardware, software, etc) in the modern office
  • [Remote] Hardware allowance

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! 

Wie we zijn

We zijn een klein team dat sterk gelooft dat betere technologie leidt tot betere oplossingen voor reële problemen. We hangen functionele talen en statisch typeren aan, zijn intensieve gebruikers van code-generatie en meta-programmeren, hebben heldere code en voorspelbaarheid hoog staan en kijken continu hoe we herhalende taken kunnen automatiseren en boilerplate kunnen vermijden.

We worden geleid door DRY en volgen KISS. Als er nieuwe technologie is die ons leven makkelijker maakt, zullen we het proberen. We leunen sterk op open-source code (als de enige rendabele manier om een systeem te bouwen dat goed te onderhouden is) en we geven terug. contribute back. We occasionally blog on

Ons motto is eerst doen, dan goed doen, dan beter doen
