Your Opportunity…

Be part of something special. OLX plays a vital role in emerging markets, providing a platform for people to sell their possessions as a crucial source of income. Apollo is our global image and media hosting solution. It takes care of storing and delivering media for the 54 million listings posted by our users every month. Our mission is simple: Give users a streamlined experience for sharing and viewing media from anywhere, on any device at any time.

Your job as a Jr. Java Software Engineer is to grow Apollo (Java 8, Spring, AWS, Docker, Kubernetes) to global scale and have it handle all our user generated content.
