We are looking for a Middle/Senior Database Engineer to join our team!

Remote position
UK customer


SoftServe has established a trustworthy relationship with the customer operating in 13 countries with over 50,000 riders who deliver orders from 50,000 restaurants in over 200 cities worldwide. They want to be the definitive food company – the app you go to any time you have a hunger pang. Their operation is one of the most complex three sided marketplaces in the world and done in real-time. Millions of customers and thousands of restaurants and riders rely on us to have a match within milliseconds. The algorithms behind that marketplace are the secret sauce that allow us to deliver our orders in under 30 minutes.

Currently, services have to process data for all our global markets and there is a limit to how much they can be scaled. We are aiming at dividing our markets across five different shards. As well as breaking down single DB into the geographicaly distributed shards will allow distributing order volume as much as possible (GeoSharding).

Our goal is to migrate ETL pipelines, data processes, reports, queries and standalone processes to use a new DRN format instead of the current identifiers.


Showing at least 4-year engineering experience
Strongly professional with PostgreSQL
Familiar with cloud-hosted DBs
Proficient in Aurora, and using AWS services managed by Terraform. Understanding data warehousing, data modeling concepts, and structuring new data tables
A holder of bright communications skills across all levels of stakeholder (business & technical)
Demonstrating Intermediate Strong+ English level


Agile team passionate about utilizing emerging technologies and delivering high quality and a timely code
Cross-functional global teams to define, design, develop, and deliver new features as well as optimizing existing code
Continuous exploration, evaluation, and incorporation of new technologies into our products and processes to improve development efficiency
Delivery of quality software solution using Agile development cycle
Analyzing and resolving performance, stability, and security issues
Identifying and tuning basic maintenance parameters, e.g. auto vacuum settings, index management, and other database instance/cluster parameters
Managing data and schema changes (e.g. migrations) using an ORM (we use ActiveRecord as part of a large Ruby/Rails monolith)
Advanced database design such as table partitioning and sharding, connection management patterns, load balancing (e.g. replica management), etc.


Support your technical and personal growth — we have a dedicated career plan for all roles in our company
