At the end of the day we want to ensure we build the best e-commerce solution in the photography market. 
The GotPhoto SaaS platform helps school photographers streamline their workflow and ensure that they can easily manage large photo shoots and print amazing products their customers want. GotPhoto is a profitable startup that has been around since 2010. 
Our culture is empowering a positive business model, with the mindset “we create winners”. Photographers, parents, schools and labs are better off when using our software.

Location: Most of our team is based in Berlin but this role is a fully remote position based in Germany or Spain and Portugal (through our employer of record).

Your role

  • Customer-first culture (yes even as a Dev, we hope you care about our customers too)

Our stack

We take a pragmatic approach to building products and systems that work for our customers. We have micro-frontends built with React and NextJS that connect to a CakePHP application. The main design system and applications live in a NX based monorepo, all built with strict Typescript, styled with Tailwind, tested with Testing Library and supported by GitLab pipelines that connect to SonarCloud.

In the backend, we use AWS-Cloud using MySQL, Docker, SQS, SNS, SES, PhpUnit, NewRelic, Graylog. In the Platform team we make use of Amazon Lambda for image processing to keep the scale very flexible. Payments are handled and abstracted by the finance team in their own distributed service. 

Since our business has complex use cases, we keep the cognitive load for our Devs as low as possible so they focus on solving problems rather than configuring tech. Read more about our tech here.
