Join a young and well-funded Adtech startup in the heart of Berlin!


Swaarm is a performance-based marketing platform, that provides the newest adtech tracking solution for Agencies, Advertisers and Networks to manage, track, analyze, and optimize their marketing campaigns at scale.


The platform has been engineered from the ground up to be simple to use, yet powerful and right from the beginning we started testing with real clients to make each action simpler, faster, and better - like iOS and Android are to our phones, we aspire to be the Operating System of Performance Marketing.


With the official launch of the platform in October 2020, we are now looking for driven Software Engineers to help us design, build, operate, and scale our ad-tech systems and management tools.

You will be part of an international team working in a dynamic and agile environment. You will work closely with other software and data engineers to build the next generation ad-tech services.

If you have a deep understanding of building highly scalable applications in Java (or other languages) and like optimizing your services to deliver sub-millisecond latency while handling millions of concurrent requests you will fit right in.

What you will do:

  • Design, build, test, scale, and operate our highly available services handling billions of events per day
  • Improve current service architecture and quality
  • Work in an agile environment and contribute your ideas to continuously improve our products, processes, and tools


  • 4+ years of experience developing highly scalable web services in Java / Scala / Kotlin
  • Experience with Spring Boot and Spring Data
  • Experience with GraphQL APIs
  • Experience with Kafka and event sourcing architecture
  • Being independent and product-focused, owning the whole development process

Nice to have:

  • Experience with big data stores and engines like Druid / Clickhouse or Presto
  • Ad-tech or HFT background

Swaarm does not offer relocation packages.

Thank You
