Now we are looking for a Senior Backend Developer in Cluj, Romania.

We are seeking a skilled Senior Backend Developer with an affinity for Frontend to join our Product team and help us continue to deliver exceptional products and services to our customers.

Also, you like challenging and being challenged when it comes to technical questions – and you’re happy to share what you know with your colleagues. You appreciate the benefits of good documentation and communication.

All in all, our ideal candidate is a pragmatic problem-solver looking for solutions that are in the best interest of the team and the company, given the constraints at hand.

A day at Legentic

On Monday, you head to the office and begin your day with a coffee and a chat with your colleagues. As you sit down at your desk and power on your laptop, you start tackling your to-do list for the day, which includes working on improving the backend infrastructure for our product.

At the daily standup meeting at 10:40 AM, you update the team on your progress and let them know you don't have any obstacles. When you see that one of your teammates is stuck on a task, you decide to lend a hand until lunchtime.

After lunch with your colleagues, return to parsing queries efficiently and effectively and decide to add another search element to our search engine. At the end of the day, you start preparing your LegenTech presentation, where you’ll present a new way to schedule searches efficiently for all the techies.
