Database Engineer (Fresh Grad)

The Programme 

The Engineering and Technology team is at the core of the Shopee platform development. The team is made up of a group of passionate engineers from all over the world, striving to build the best systems with the most suitable technologies. Our engineers do not merely solve problems at hand; We build foundations for a long-lasting future.

We don't limit ourselves on what we can or can't do; we take matters into our own hands even if it means drilling down to the bottom layer of the computing platform. Shopee's hyper-growing business scale has transformed most "innocent" problems into huge technical challenges, and there is no better place to experience it first-hand if you love technologies as much as we do.

Database Engineers take care of all database servers in Shopee and help to deliver large scale applications of e-commerce. We are looking for people with a passion for database, programming, and architecture design. High-potential fresh graduates with no prior experience are welcome.
