The backend teams are divided into two areas of responsibility: Core services and frontend APIs

As a backend developer within the core services team, you will be responsible to develop new services as needed and also maintain existing service. There are many different kinds of core services: media upload, device connection, device inventory, notification broker etc.

We adhere to the backend-for-frontend archiectural design pattern, and thus, the frontend application teams develops and maintain their own set of frontend/ingress APIs (that is, their own BFF). As a backend developer within the frontend application teams, you will be responsible for those APIs and to integrate towards the core services of the PSaaS platform.

We do most of our backend development in Golang, but in cases where needed and if there is any more suited technology, exceptions can be made.
