Senior Software Engineer, Backend

Who we are

There are over 100 million developers in the world, and all of them write and review code in some form. DeepSource is building tools that help developers ship good code. We believe there’s a massive opportunity to impact how software is built right from where the code is written, which not only improves developer productivity but also increases software’s robustness.

Currently, we are looking for an experienced Senior Software Engineer to join our team in Bangalore.

Who you are

You are a master of coding and you can build any relatively complex web application end-to-end. You can work at any company in the world, but you choose us because we’re always striving for simplicity, yet perfection, while keeping the user (a fellow developer) center of everything. You understand no one can whistle a symphony but it takes a whole orchestra to play it. You have high integrity and a strong work ethic. You are organized and self-motivated and you enjoy life outside of work. If this sounds like you, we would love to chat!
