All genders

Bern, Switzerland


We are zebbra, an interdisciplinary team of software, DevOps, and network engineering experts. zebbra is more than just a workplace; it's a community of dreamers and pragmatists, of passionate and creative individuals.

We strive to use the best tools to build the most effective solutions for our clients. Over the years, we've worked with a variety of technologies (TypeScript, Python, Ruby, Vue, TailwindCSS, Angular, Prometheus, Kubernetes, AWS, etc.). Recently, we've developed a deep affinity for Elixir and the Phoenix framework. This opens up a unique opportunity for you to join our team as our new Elixir Developer, helping us elevate our solutions to the next level.

As part of our team, you'll:

  • Design, build, deploy, and maintain customer solutions using Elixir, Phoenix and Ash.
  • Join a small, fearless team tackling challenging problems with agility and elegance.
  • Contribute to a company culture that values employees, fosters open communication, and encourages knowledge sharing.
  • Work in our inspiring office in Bern. We're open to partial remote work, but we believe in the power of in-person collaboration and social interaction.
  • Enjoy the opportunity to cool down in the Aare river during lunch breaks or afternoon team meetings in the summer.

You are:

  • Passionate and structured, yet pragmatic, keeping focus on what really matters.
  • Familiar with Elixir and Phoenix, or very enthusiastic about them and willing to learn quickly.
  • Experienced with Git and CI/CD pipelines (bonus points for writing Helm charts and knowledge of Kubernetes).
  • Fluent in web technologies (HTML, JS/TS, CSS, etc.).
  • Interested in using ML and LLMs to solve real-world problems (bonus points for experience with Bumblebee and/or LLMs).

You have:

  • A university/FH degree in computer science or equivalent (amaze us).
  • 3+ years of experience in software development (professional or senior level).
  • German language skills with good English proficiency.
  • Good swimming skills (or own a fancy aarebag).
  • CH-Residency/Swiss work permit.

Why us?

  • We don’t just code for a living; we have code flowing through our veins and dream in binary.
  • Great freedom in work organization and hours, with plenty of room for ideas, creativity, and more.
  • Open dialogue with colleagues who, like you, want to make a difference.
  • Challenging projects that will help you grow personally and professionally.
  • A great office by the river Aare, offering relief when projects and minds heat up.
  • Unforgettable apéros and team events.
