POD Lead Backend Developer

Košice, Kosice, Slovakia

Our Team
We are building a new team whose mission is adopting a modern development and engineering approach and be the first example of what genuine application of Agile, DevOps and common sense can achieve in the enterprise environment.
Right now, we have a small, closely-knit team of young people coming from different backgrounds who not only want to bring improvement to our product but also enjoy the time we spend together.
The team and its members have a lot of freedom in the way they operate, moreover:
- Common sense overrides processes
- Team management is focused on results, not work hour count
- Frequent, spontaneous team building outings
- No call days
- Innovation days (micro hackathons)
- We have real Italian espresso :P
Our approach to home office is common sense based: we need everyone to be in office on a regular basis to facilitate knowledge sharing and interaction with our internal customers, but we appreciate calm and focus are needed when it is finally time to get to coding.
Our Product
Our focus is Flexware, a new flagship product based on Network Function Virtualization technologies that started 2.5 years ago at AT&T.
It consists of a hardware device and the NFV software associated with it.
While the setup brings a lot of value to our customers (it saves them money :) the customer experience while ordering it and setting it up can greatly be improved (very… greatly).
This is what we will be striving to do and what we need your help and expertise for.
Our vision once our development teams are built is to gain ownership of the customer experience from the ordering process to the service assurance relationship.

I will never regret my decision to start working in AT&T. It's changed my life.


Higher salary than the average in the region. Good cooperation within team and other teams. Opportunity to grow - you are not stuck in one position if you have the will to go further.


There is a great fluctuation of people in some teams which make it difficult to rely on co-workers. Sometimes it is tough to understand all those English accents from all around the world
