Senior Backend Developer

Website Lufthansa Innovation Hub

We are Europe’s largest airlines’ innovation unit and work on a variety of innovative projects from new ways of booking flights to the future of climate-neutral flying.

As a senior developer, you are someone who can see projects through from beginning to end, coach others, and self-manage. We’re looking for an eager person who can bring our team to the next level with their technical knowledge, people skills, and real-world experience.

On the technical side, extensive experience building high-traffic websites using Ruby and Ruby on Rails is a hard requirement. Experience with DevOps (AWS services, Terraform) is a plus but not required.
