We’re looking for a Go engineer who cares about great code and a well architected backend to help us reach worldwide scale.

Become part of our team of makers and help us shape the future of e-commerce. There is plenty of room for your ideas and initiatives on how to improve our platform. Apply now and join us in our mission to connect people to the brands they love. 

About your role

The backend is the heart of the product. It’s your task to never let it miss a beat. Our backend engineers are responsible for the API’s of a fast growing number of retail apps with users all over the world, from the UK to Japan.

Your responsibilities:

  • Design and develop API’s that are used by our mobile apps.

  • Focus on scale and performance.
  • Deploy new updates to production every week.

About you

We are looking for someone who loves backend technology. Who enjoys learning new things, is not afraid to experiment and fail. Who loves working in a small team without corporate structures.

  • You have 3+ years of professional experience in designing and building RESTful API’s.
  • You integrate testing into your daily workflow.
  • You are driven to become the best in what you do and care about details.
  • Bonus points: you have experience with Docker and Kubernetes.


From our stylish office, a minute from the tracks at Utrecht Centraal Station, to our flexible holidays and monthly team drinks, we do everything to make sure you can work comfortably and balanced at Highstreet.

  • Daily a subsidised fresh and healthy lunch (salads, rolls, hot snacks) with the team
