Ahrefs is looking for a backend developer with deep understanding of networks, distributed systems, OS fundamentals and taste for simple and efficient architectural designs.
In this role, be prepared to deal with petabytes of live data, highly-optimized custom storage engine and Linux on a daily basis.
Proficiency in C++ (including C++20)
Working experience with linux system-level programming
Understanding of OS inner workings
Experience optimizing code for speed and memory
Knowledge of OCaml is a plus
The ideal candidate is expected to:
Independently deal with bugs, schedule tasks and investigate code
Make well-reasoned technical choices and take responsibility for them
Understand the whole technology stack at all levels: from network and user-space code to OS internals and hardware
Handle full development cycle of a single component i.e. formalize task, write code and tests, setup and support production (DevOps), assure data correctness and quality
Approach problems with a practical mindset and suppress perfectionism when time is a priority
Write flexible, maintainable code and adapt to post-launch requirements/tweaks
These requirements stem naturally from our approach to development with fast feedback cycle, highly-focused personal areas of responsibility and strong tendency to vertical component splitting.

Informal and thriving work atmosphere
Above-average perks and fringe benefits
[Office] First-class workplace (hardware, software, etc) in the modern office
[Remote] Hardware allowance
