Palta is a multi-product tech platform developing several mobile apps focused on health and well-being with a combined audience of more than 50 million monthly active users. Our portfolio includes such successful companies as Flo (global leader in female health), Simple (12m+ downloads, the most popular intermittent fasting app in the US), Zing (personal fitness trainer), and more.
The rapid portfolio growth is fuelled by the recently raised $100 million in a series B round led by VNV Global.
Pora is a Beauty and Health AI assistant developed to democratize dermatology and cosmetology services. Our goal is to empower peoples' wellness and beauty with an ultimate tool for understanding and further improving their skin.

We have already developed the iOS version of our app that is available in the US, Canada, and EU stores. It’s capable of:
Still, we are at our early stages now. We need to continue developing our backend services to improve the reliability, security, and effectiveness of our infrastructure. At the same time, we need to implement a large variety of new user scenarios. Last but not least: we need to improve our analysis algorithms and data processing pipelines. So, for a backend engineer, we’re happy to propose a wide range of opportunities — from building infrastructure to research.
What do we need
The backend should meet various needs, including:
and, for sure, we'll need a good monitoring system, tests, CI/CD pipelines, and almost everything you may imagine when speaking of the backend! We're with cloud solutions, so the corresponding experience should be handy.
We're looking for a solid professional to continue building the backend infrastructure and join the team responsible person for it. If you also have the ambition to lead the corresponding team in the future — you're a top-notch candidate!
Why work with us
Should we mention that joining the startup in the very early stage means an opportunity to lead a large department in the observable future? Indeed we should! But it also means taking maximum out of the employee stock ownership plan. The fewer employees we have — the more shares we might offer. Join us while we're still small and benefit from our growth!
What we expect
Our current stack
Our current team
The current team is pretty small: we have less than twenty team members 🙂 Most of our fellow colleagues are engineers — ML, backend, iOS, and web developers. The product team also includes several designers, product and project managers as well as UX researchers. We collaborate with many scientists to make sure our app is in line with the existing body of research.
Most of the team is based in Limassol (Cyprus), and we are ready to help with relocation or discuss an opportunity to work remotely.
Please join us in our adventure!
