Backend Developer (short term assignment)

🚗 About us

At Lizy, we are reshaping the € 70bn European car leasing business, one of the largest yet-to-be disrupted markets. Lizy is one of the projects of Lab-Box, the investment fund / incubator of D’Ieteren Auto where we improve the mobility of people and goods in a scalable & sizable way.

Our backend tech stack currently consists of an event driven Python Serverless Infrastructure. Our data stores include DynamoDB, ElasticSearch. The underlying infrastructure runs on AWS using a combination of managed services like Lambda, SQS, SNS, GraphQL .... It runs through CI/CD pipelines that run automated tests and deploy to AWS via the Serverless framework. Our backend primarily serves a graphQL API that our front-end React app consumes.

Every team at Lizy uses the OKR methodology to set quarterly and annual goals and measure corresponding achievements. With our weekly planning pace and our no nonsense written culture we focus on the most important tasks while keeping our long term goals in mind.
