A role for anyone located in Curitiba (Brazil)

ℹ️ We will consider only applications in English!

Role Overview 🚀

At Uncapped, we help ambitious founders realise their dreams. If you want to help grow an exciting company by using your expertise in microservice architectures--and deep knowledge and skill in testing your own code--this job is for you. This role is ideally suited for an Engineer who is very good at working closely with others, especially other backend developers. You are a self-igniting engineer, motivated to seek opportunities to improve both a codebase and delivery processes.

We like to work with Engineers who contribute to discussions, explore options, and include other views in making decisions. And we focus on engineering valuable business outcomes and building more data-driven systems, rather than measuring work based on completed tasks.
