JMP incorporates the team’s learnings and best practices including CQRS and event sourcing. Although it’s a young product we’re practicing agile methodology to gradually evolve it in a modular way and having a very ambitious roadmap in mind.

Since we are having huge plans, we are looking for multiple developers on junior, medior and senior level!

Bonus points

                     Experience with devops and infrastructure practices and technology like deployment automation, provisioning etc. in a safe, reliable way
                     Understanding of design patterns such as event sourcing and CQRS, and you know when to apply them
                     Experience with REST API design
                     Experience with Elasticsearch
