At Happy Socks we have made it our mission to spread happiness everywhere, and you only have to spend a few minutes with us to realize how seriously we take it! Our strong and fast growth is built on pro-active, smart, creative, hands-on and hardworking people who embrace Happy Socks’ culture & spirit.

We are now looking for a Backend Engineer to join our in-house Engineering Team.

You will work in the eCommerce department as part of a group of talented designers and engineers responsible for the development of our own eCommerce platform.

As a Backend Engineer, you will be responsible for building the next generation of eCommerce tools and services. The products we are working on are built on a range of technologies and AWS services including: Laravel, Vue.js, Docker, Lambda, SQS, Aurora, etc.

Main Responsibilities

  • Design, build, and maintain scalable backend services and APIs.
  • Help shape the vision for the future of Happy Socks’ E-commerce platform beyond Magento.
  • Collaborate closely with engineers and other stakeholders and become an active member of a cross-functional organization.

Requirements & Skills

  • 3+ years of professional experience working with the Laravel PHP framework (Vapor is a plus).
  • Practical experience with the AWS serverless platform.
  • Bonus: Practical experience with Magento 2.

You are excellent at solving problems and you are that kind of person who can communicate your ideas in a clear and effective way.

But most importantly, we think you have the personality to fit a somewhat crazy, fun work environment where we believe in color and playfulness, a place where you can expect the unexpected and you are a source of creative weirdness.

We are 180 colorful characters at Happy Socks from over 25 different countries and you’ll be working at our quirky HQ in Stockholm.
