Innsbruck, the capital of the Alps, Austria • Full-time

Cropster is the market leader in software for the speciality coffee industry. We work with farmers, exporters, importers and roasters in over 80 countries around the world to help them deliver a better cup of coffee in a sustainable way.

We work with state of the art software development tools with a focus on reliability and security. We’re a fast growing business that is highly focused on our customers and the benefits we can bring them through close collaboration—with a successful history of over 10 years. We also believe that work-life balance is more than a catch phrase, it is a part of our success.

We encourage empowerment and taking over responsibilities. We provide our team with room to grow within our organization, to develop their interests and expertise whatever their current experience level.

About the role

As a Java backend developer you will work with a highly talented engineering team on the core applications and APIs. You will have a direct impact on our products and user experience. There are opportunities to solve interesting challenges that come with a fast-growing customer-base, through design and implementation of new features and functionalities.

We offer fair, competitive, and transparent pay. The range for this position is €39K to €54K gross and we look at factors like your experience and individual qualification to determine our offer, which comes with benefits like an educational budget, an endless stream of really great coffee, as well as a company wide bonus based on shared goals. We also make our best possible offer upfront—no games.

Requirements

We are looking for people with:

  • Degree in Computer Science or a proven track record in developing non-trivial applications
  • At least three years of experience, knowledge and excitement about software development in a modern object-oriented programming language (e.g., Java, C#, Python, etc.)
  • Specialization in Java
  • A strong command of written and spoken English

That said, we'd be particularly delighted to hire someone with:

  • Working experience with JavaEE, or even better Spring (Boot)
  • Experience with continuous delivery and infrastructure as code
  • AWS and Docker experience or willingness to learn
  • Additional languages (humane and machine)

More about us

What is it like to work from the Innsbruck office at Cropster?

Our office was carefully and thoughtfully designed to encourage both collaborative work and give you quiet space to focus. In addition to the standard height-adjustable desk, you'll have several spaces throughout the office to work. We often cook and eat together. We don’t eat at our desks. We’re social both in and outside the office.

What is it like to live in Innsbruck?

As the capital of the Austrian Alps in Tyrol, Innsbruck is a world class destination for skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, climbing and countless other outdoor activities. It only takes 20 minutes to get from the city center to 2,256 meters above sea level, summer and winter. If you enjoy outdoor sports it is one of the world leaders—we think #1. It also has a great university, lots of bars, cafes and clubs, a good live music scene, an impressive infrastructure and business environment for a city of its size along with a well connected airport. Innsbruck is only 30 minutes from Italy and 45 minutes from Germany. Bottom line, outside the office you are spoiled for choice in Innsbruck.

TL;DR It’s awesome. Seriously.

Flexible hours and work-life balance, what does that mean?

Work-life balance at Cropster means that you'll have time to tend to the life stuff that comes up outside your job. Doctors appointment? Sick kid? Waiting for a handyman? We have all been there and you won't need to plan your life around your working hours to take care of your life. Beside flexible working hours, we also provide the option to work from home if you want or need to. Also 38.5 hour/week are the norm, not the exception. And if there is a big powder day, there is not much stopping you from hitting the slopes.
