Hey! We’re Sturdy – simple & efficient code collaboration.

We’re now looking to hire more engineers to come and join our team!

How we build our backend

The backend at Sturdy powers the heavy lifting of everything related to files (and we have a lot of them!). It's built with Go, PostgreSQL, and GraphQL. Our backend is a single monolith, that we're deploying to Sturdy Cloud on AWS, and to self-hostable installations at our customers (in Docker). The backend is open-source and all of the work happens in the open.

  • Solid experience and interest to work with Go, GraphQL, and PostgreSQL
  • Have a solid understanding of distributed systems
  • Flexibility to adjust to the dynamic nature of a startup

Together with the team, you’ll succeed with these goals:

  • Work as a part of a team of engineers to add features to the Sturdy service
  • Have a good overview of the product, from customer needs, to product features

Benefits

  • Work out of our great office in Stockholm, Sweden
  • Flexible working hours – a good work/life balance is really important to us
  • Competitive compensation, stock options, and pension
  • 30 days of paid vacation / year
