Backend Developer with Go

We create innovative, world-class engineering solutions. We don’t mean to brag, but in our daily work, we solve unconventional problems you can’t really google. Whenever possible, we open-source our libraries and share them with the developer community.

About the role:
  • You’ll be a member of the Platform API team responsible for developing our core backend services.
  • You’ll develop the API used internally in our products. Thanks to that, you’ll get to cooperate with various teams. 
  • On top of that, the exact same API is used by external developers, who build LiveChat integrations. Your work will shape the entire LiveChat Platform ecosystem and the LiveChat Developer Community.
  • You’ll have full ownership of the features you’ll work on. You’ll get to propose, design, and implement a solution. You’ll have our support all the way to fixing bugs on production ;-) 

Our tech stack: 
-Golang, node.js
-MySQL, Elasticsearch, Redis, RabbitMQ
-gRPC, Protobuf, Websocket

We’re open to experimenting with new technologies. We analyze each problem and choose the right tools to solve it.

Who are we looking for? 

Tech Skills: Golang is our main programming language, so you need to know at least the basics - do you know a Tour of Go inside out? Have you done at least 1 project in this language? You are more than welcome! Sometimes we also use node.js - good if you know it too.
-We’re advocates of software craftsmanship, who truly care about the quality of their code. We hope you share these values, too. 
-We expect you to have at least a few years of experience running projects independently and not be afraid to take full ownership for your work.

Soft skills & attitude: We’re a team of developers driven by passion, who enjoy each other’s company and like to joke around. At the same time, we’re open to feedback, both positive and negative. We don’t avoid difficult subjects but resolve problems by discussing them. We’ll get along well if you’re cheerful, ready to give & take feedback, and passionate about coding. Your enthusiasm and proactive approach can make up for a more modest experience.  

Language skills: You need to have a very good knowledge of written and spoken English.


We don’t want you to worry about all the basic benefits - like a Multisport card, private health care, or a home office equipment budget. What we really want you to feel and what we believe in is that the real benefits come from the culture we’ve built.

With unlimited paid days off and sick days policy, a remote-friendly environment focused on outcomes instead of worked hours, and people dedicated to their work, you’ll find a workplace where you can thrive.

And here’s the icing on the cake: You’ll have the opportunity to work with the makers behind all Text products: LiveChat, ChatBot, HelpDesk, KnowledgeBase, and OpenWidget
