Deutschland, Berlin, Berlin
Technology & Data


In order to empower local retailers, idealo has launched the Local Offers initiative to create more visibility in the world of e-commerce and to give customers a sustainable and regional shopping experience.

If you have a heart for traditional retail and share the wish to create new products with actual impact on the market, you are more than welcome to join us for this initiative. After successfully mastering the MVP phase, we are ready to get started. Therefore, we are looking for innovative thinkers who can communicate and interact in an environment of freedom and interdisciplinary teams and virtues.

We are now looking for a pragmatic Java Backend Engineer (m|f|x) in full-time or part-time, to complement our interdisciplinary team with backend expertise. Together and in fast iterations, we will generate ideas, build prototypes (that run in production) and define the best possible (domain-driven) architecture for Local Offers.

  • You feel comfortable working in Spring Boot and Spring Cloud environments.
  • Together with the interdisciplinary team from various backgrounds, you will take part in building the foundation of this business opportunity for idealo.
  • You are a curious mind for joint ideas with other teams and departments to come up with new approaches.

About you

  • You have 3+ years of experience with customer facing web applications (ideally Spring Boot).
  • You feel comfortable building applications from scratch and deploy (Github Actions experience is a plus) them continuously to the Cloud (AWS or Kubernetes experience is a plus).
  • Automated testing is part of your daily business, and you can easily explain the differences between unit, integration and contract testing.
  • VCC (Git) and trunk-based-development is inherent for your daily work.
  • You live the principle: You build it you run it.
