WellD is looking for a Senior Backend Developer (Java / Kotlin) to join its internal dev team in Lugano.

If you believe you have the right skills and mindset, here is some info about us and the kind of job we offer.

Who we are
WellD is a fast-growing company dedicated to custom software product development, strongly focused on state-of-the-art technology. But most importantly we are a team of cool, down-to-earth and yet highly passionate and qualified devs and engineers. We value passion, interest in technology, and an analytical mindset over pure skill-specific knowledge.

Where we are
We are located next to Lugano in Agno, Switzerland. Our offices are easily accessible by public transportation.

Remote policy
We currently offer a hybrid remote policy. While WellD values workplace flexibility, our priority remains our clients and teams. Please note that our remote work policy may be subject to change in accordance with Swiss and cross-border legislation.

What tech we use

Our main tech stack includes Java/Kotlin and TypeScript, ReactJS and React Native.
We version our projects on GitLab, and rely heavily on containerization through Docker, both for development and CI/CD purposes.

How we conceive software dev
We promote Agile Development with a formal process including Code Reviews, Pair Programming, and Continuous Delivery. We care about software quality and have a proper methodology/pipeline to ensure it is always achieved. We do not just-code-it, we design it.

We believe in Open Source, and take every chance we have to share knowledge on our Tech Blog or contribute to OSS.

  • Developing scalable backend solutions using Java and ensuring their seamless integration with frontend technologies.
  • Implementing and managing DevOps practices, including CI/CD pipelines, automated testing, and deployment using Docker.
  • Participating in code reviews, pair programming sessions, and knowledge sharing activities to maintain high software quality standards.
