TalkJS - Senior Backend Developer - Remote (Europe/Africa)

TalkJS lets developers build a perfect chat feature in just a few hours. We power communication in online marketplaces, community sites, trading platforms and so on. We’re product driven and we care tremendously about quality: We’re out to build the tool that every developer worldwide will use to build chat/communication features.

We’re an API company, and good APIs get shipped by competent people who feel like they have the space and permission to deliver something awesome. We built an extremely low-meeting, low-bullshit environment to make this work. If you’re the kind of person who is self-propelled and who feels that meetings and processes just get in the way of shipping valuable work, you’ll love working at TalkJS.

Our entire backend is Elixir and we love how it lets us keep our infrastructure simple, robust and affordable.
