Backend Engineer

Full Time, London
MUBI is a global SVOD movie platform reaching a community of over 10 million film lovers around the world with offices in London, New York, Vienna, Istanbul, Mumbai, and Kuala Lumpur.  Every film we show is individually selected and presented by our curators; every film is one that we truly believe in. 

We’re looking for a full time backend engineer to play a critical role in building out the business logic of our stack, from launching new user facing features and capabilities to building and improving APIs and delivering new integrations with partner services.

What are we looking for?

This role requires at least 4 years proven experience with Ruby-on-Rails (or a similar web application framework) and relational databases. Hands-on experience with Redis, Elasticsearch, Sidekiq and video technologies such as DASH, HLS and DRM will be a big bonus in this role but not essential so long as you have a strong appetite for learning fast!

Familiarity with any of React, NextJS, Chef and AWS is beneficial.

About you

You should enjoy solving challenging problems at scale across multiple systems and take pride in writing high quality, well-tested code. You should embrace software engineering best practices for iterative development and produce cohesive code that is easy to read, reuse and modify.

This role is suitable for a candidate who is comfortable working with a high degree of independence and can collaborate effectively with colleagues and key stakeholders across the business. You should thrive on taking ownership of projects as well as being active about improving engineering practices and tooling at MUBI.

Our growing team of backend engineers relish the opportunity to level up their experience across a broad spectrum of domains be it video, billing, analytics, content delivery or device APIs.


A small team with big ambitions, we operate in the same world as Netflix and Amazon. Equipped with our unique offer in the SVOD landscape, we’re free to explore new approaches and ideas to provide the most engaging and useful experience to our customers. Having experienced a huge period of growth, we’re seeking world class engineers to join our team.
Salary: Dependent on experience.
If working on a wide range of interesting, impactful projects with a world class team excites you, then we want to hear from you!
