We are currently looking for a PHP Developer to join the back end team

The development team constantly improves Falcon. You would work with our high-scalable restless API and in close collaboration with the front end team to deliver new features. Single hubs running in Falcon often comprise above 30 users working simultaneously on over 1.000 activities and 50.000 financial entries. Especially the financials are subject to constant change and still need real-time aggregation. Thus, it truly matters if an API call takes 700ms or 150ms to ensure the best experience. Help the team to develop new and interesting features and challenge us to raise the bar higher!

Examples of challenges the team will be working on in the next 12 months

  • Integrations (e.g. Tableau and Zapier)
  • Log- & Notifications-System
  • Kanban for the Schedule
  • Analysis-Suite
