Backend Engineer

Berlin, Germany


Aiden is the first voice-powered assistant for scientists. We apply machine learning and voice recognition technologies to streamline lab documentation.

Our purpose is to make R&D better, faster and more efficient. Today, research documentation is a fundamentally broken process. Just think of lab environments where both hands are busy with experiment or where there is no light. With the help of voice and specially trained neural networks, Aiden delivers documentation in real time where other solutions choke and fail.

We are looking for a backend or full stack engineer to build out our backend systems. You will work closely with designers and product managers to define, scope and implement backend solutions to further improve our product. You will be instrumental in owning parts of the architecture, implementation, and deployment of our backend services. Our current backend is built using Kotlin and Spring Boot 2, running on Kubernetes on AWS. All our cloud infrastructure is managed as code via Terraform. We continuously deploy changes to multiple environments every day.
