    Senior Backend Engineer

    About the Role

    In this role, you will primarily work as a Senior Backend Engineer within the Technology department building world-class internal products to support Andela’s business needs.

    As the Senior Backend Engineer, you will take on complex tasks and complete them despite roadblocks, grabbing others for help or insight as necessary. You will require very little oversight beyond high-level direction; you can take a complex user story, break it down into sub-tasks, and complete their sub-tasks with relative ease. You will show initiative beyond knocking tasks off a list; you are able to identify and suggest areas of future work for yourself or your team.
