As a Software Engineer, you’ll work on cutting-edge technologies to design, scale, and maintain backend architectures. Backend is a core part of the TUI Musement's business, it is used in internal projects as well as external-facing ones. Our main application is based on Symfony4 but on top of that, we have different API gateways written in PHP, NodeJS, and Go. All our applications use MySQL as the primary data store but we also rely on Elasticsearch and Redis. TUI Musement's backend architecture embraces the "backend for frontend" pattern. This approach allows us to easily connect our backend to a bunch of different client applications: SPA, mobile app, or other backend systems.
