Backend Engineer (Image & video rendering)

Position Details
Location Helsinki
Commitment Full-time
Team Engineering

We are looking for a Backend Engineer to join team Render, the team responsible for building and operating our image and video rendering platform. 

Our users create image- and video templates to showcase products with the Smartly template editor. These templates can be combined with product information in order to create images or videos. This is what team Render does, we provide the platform for generating images and videos. Billions of them.

We are currently building the next version of our image rendering system. Like our video rendering, it is built in typescript & node and is run in kubernetes. 

The rendering platforms are distributed systems spanning hundreds of physical servers to meet the demands for the massive load and reliable service. To give some sense of the scale, currently our systems are generating over 200TB of images and videos daily. 

Read more about our image (the old version) and video rendering solutions in our blog:
