  • Munich (or Remote)

  • We've just shipped the v1 of LumiQuote - a B2B SaaS application for the electronics industry and Luminovo's first step in redefining the software stack used to bring electronics to life. Read more about what we're up to here. We decided to write most of our code in Rust around a year ago and have been loving it ever since. Now we want to pick up steam and need your help.

    Here's what you'll be getting up to

    • Take responsibility for keeping our Rust codebase healthy (easy to understand and easy to change) and provide guidance (through code reviews, pair programming and insight hours) to our other engineers to do the same
    • Help us deliver value to our users in a speedy and reliable manner by developing and deploying new features. Break down your work into small user stories and make your progress visible. You will own features from conception until and after they are in production. If you are a full-stack developer that's a plus, but a pure backend-focus is also fine for this role!
    • Help us reduce the number of bugs introduced into our application and make it easier to refactor with confidence by improving our automated tests
    • Solidify our observability setup to monitor, identify and debug performance bottlenecks (such as database connections, locks, TCP sockets, threads, CPU, memory etc.) before they become a problem
    • We will soon try to find a good boundary in our domain model and split our product team into two to reduce cognitive load on our engineers. Help us break our Rust monolith into two and ensure both teams can deploy independently.
    • Keep learning about new technologies and practices related to using Rust in production; assess whether and how they can be used at Luminovo

    Tech stack
    We always try to use the best tools available for the job. As of now our tech stack looks more or less like this. Don't worry we don't need you to be familiar with all of these.
    • Main monolith written in Rust (using actix-web as our web framework; soon switching from diesel to sqlx); one stateless service in Python (using FastAPI); frontend with React and Typescript
    • PostgreSQL for persisting our data
    • Kubestack, terraform, flux and flagger for GitOps
    • Logrocket and Honeycomb for monitoring and observability
    • garden-io for developing on Kubernetes
    • Azure for cloud computing


    Just so you know - we purposefully did not create a standard list of minimum qualifications for this role. We care much more about your motivation and ability to help us accelerate technical progress than we care just about your CV. If you're interested to find out more about why we banned requirements from our performance profiles - see here.
    • We're an ambitious team located in the center of Munich. We do regular 1:1s, retrospectives, and insight hours to make sure we are constantly getting better at what we do.
    • We greatly value psychological safety and honest feedback. We always expect you to speak up and share your ideas about what we can improve within the company, and take these views to heart.
    • We offer a flexible working environment, weekly company lunch, and do regular team events together (from rafting on the Loisach in the summer, celebrating at Oktoberfest, keeping our team close through virtual events during Covid, or staying overnight at a winter hut during our hiking trip to the Alps).
    • We're excited to revolutionize the electronics industry - and we want you to be too. That's why all full-time Luminerds receive competitive salary and strong company stock option packages. We also support you in finding your perfect set-up, and help you choose between team Mac or team ThinkPad.  
    • As cycling crazy as some of our team members? We offer JobRad®.

    We offer an external referral bonus! See the details about how to refer talent here.We are looking to add more than one engineer to our team, so both applications of experienced and less experienced devs are welcome. We tend to prefer if you can swing by our office in Munich a few times per month, but fully remote is possible as long as you live in the same time zone (or within +/- 2 hours CET).
