Senior Backend Developer (Java)

Join us and build backend services behind apps used by tens of millions of users.

We take pride in great engineering and invest in forward thinking technologies. We adopted Docker and React in 2013, Node.js in 2010, and we’ve also been very active contributors to the JavaScript community in China, single-handedly organizing JSConf China since 2013.
