Senior Backend Engineer (Rust)

EU / Remote



Lumeo is an award winning “no-code” video analytics platform that enables customers to instantly create & deliver custom computer vision applications using simple drag & drop tools, ready-to-use AI models, and pre-built analytic building blocks.

We are a distributed team with offices in San Francisco and Berlin. We are venture backed by some great Silicon Valley VCs. We have been in closed beta with several Fortune 500 companies and are growing our team for our production launch in the coming months.

The Role

We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer that has ample experience building scalable REST APIs.

This position will be working on our backend API written in Rust (uses actix-web). You will be writing Rust code that interacts with Postgres, MQTT, our Front-end web app and our client software service running on edge AI processing devices. You will be working directly with SQL (no ORMs here) and designing schema as needed. Lastly, you will be responsible for writing tests to keep the system reliable.

Our software stack is mostly Rust, with TypeScript/React for the front-end. Since our product runs on both the edge and the cloud, our software spans both backend SaaS as well as client software running on 100s of thousands of edge AI processing devices. Our developers get a great opportunity to work on a truly full-stack system.

Skills & Experience

Ideally you have experience with Rust or another strictly-typed language such as Go/C/C++. Experience with Postgres, SQL, and schema design is a must. Having Websocket and WebRTC experience would be a plus.


  • 5+ years experience writing scalable production REST API backends
  • Experience with strictly-typed languages such as C/C++/Go/Rust
  • Experience with Postgres, SQL, schema design required
  • Experience with Websockets and/or WebRTC would be a plus
  • Be passionate about using/learning Rust
  • Self-starter thrives in a team environment with a flat management structure

Why Us

We are building as the “modern compute engine for video” - and if you are excited about video, AI & what can be done with it, Lumeo gets you front row tickets to the widest possible set of use cases in that realm.

As an early engineer in a fast growing startup, you will work closely with the founders, a collaborative and distributed engineering & product team, and get to shape :

  • The company culture we build
  • People that we hire
  • Our engineering practices


This is a REMOTE position, but be based in EU (preference to Germany or Portugal)
