Senior Backend Engineer

Amsterdam, Netherlands | Engineering | Full-time

We’re looking for a senior-level backend engineer who’s a true tech geek, creative thinker, and master of execution.

At Lemonade, we build our products using microservices mostly written in Typescript (using NestJS) and run over Kubernetes. We love infrastructure-as-code and use Pulumi to define it. We’re also obsessed with automation - Cooper, our internal chat bot, manages all our development flow, from setting up our development environment to creating git branches and deploying services to production.  

Do you care about coding craftsmanship and want to build incredible software at record speeds? Do innovative processes inspire you? If so, we want to hear from you.


  • 5+ years working as a backend engineer
  • BSc in Computer Science or Mathematics (or equivalent experience)
  • Broad knowledge of modern backend frameworks, tools, and architecture
  • Experience working on high scale, production-grade projects
  • Past contributions to open source projects are a plus
