About the team
The Showmax Backend-Alpha team (BE-Alpha for short) focuses on user acquisition. Starting with landing pages and continuing through signup and subscription management, we are responsible for applications serving both the frontend and backend of these journeys and most of the related API services.
We are an international technical team. You can find full-stack developers (Ruby on Rails), developers focused on building APIs (Ruby), and one frontend engineer (Typescript, Next.js). The quality of our work is assured thanks to dedicated QA testers who are also part of our team.
Our team cooperates with product managers in the planning phase, participates in architectural decisions, and enjoys 24/7 visibility into the platform state thanks to our monitoring and other devops principles. The best part? We see the results of our work quickly.And if you prefer fully- remote work, you are also in luck as some of the people already work remote full-time.
How we work
BE-Alpha and BE-Bravo used to be one backend team. We still have a joint standup on Wednesdays and our team members sometimes cooperate together. However, as the team grew, we had to split our daily standups and planning.
Moreover, as the team grew further we had to find a more efficient way to give the team focus, plan new work, and assign responsibilities for individual parts of our applications. The solution was cross-functional teams, a team that consists of a product manager, software engineers, QA, data analysts, and UX/designers.
As Showmax is an international service, we integrate with several payment providers in multiple countries. With the current expansion to other markets and extending our portfolio, we expect to expand the list of integrations we support.
