Looking for Elixir Engineers in São Paulo, Brazil (On site, remote is considered)

Introductory paragraph

Obramax is a two-year-old retail startup that expanded from Europe into Brazil. We have solid corporate backing from Group Adeo and are part of the same family of companies such as Leroy Merlin, Bricoman, Zodio, Decathelon, and 20 others that together are responsible for over €23b in annual revenues.

Over the past two years Obramax grew from 10 to nearly 300 people and counting. 2019 will be a special year as we start to shift focus from brick-and-mortar expansion to expanding our digital product offering.

To help us get there, we need senior and mid-level Elixir developers (backend and fullstack) to help us build our APIs and work on other internal products.


  • Write clean, reusable, and well-tested and documented code.
  • Participate in sprint planning and come up with solutions to problems.
  • Work and collaborate with different team members across the organisation.
  • Be a thought partner.


  • 1+ year experience in the Elixir ecosystem, especially Phoenix 1.4 and Ecto.

  • Ability to write clean, reusable and well-tested and documented code.
  • Experience using or working with git, GitHub, Heroku, and Postgresql.
  • 5+ years of programming experience in other languages and platforms (Ruby, Rails, JavaScript, Python, etc…).
  • Independent and motivated, not afraid to chip in with ideas and help come up with solutions.
  • Able to talk to and empathise with end users and employees at different levels and in different positions in the company.
  • Fluent in Portuguese and at least basic English, spoken and written (enough to allow you to read and understand documentation and work with library authors and collaborators on GitHub).
