We are looking for a full-time back end engineer with experience building systems with high availability that grow at scale for our SaaS platform.

You’ll work closely with our front end engineers and our product team, with a direct impact in the products you’ll be building. As a small distributed team, we rely heavily on effective communication and autonomy in order to build, iterate, and ship rapidly.

Our philosophy is that you would be teaching us as much as you'd learn from us. By learning and inspiring others, you'll help cultivate an environment that makes us better at what we do each day.

What you'll be doing:

  • Contribute to all aspects of the software process: including architecture, specification reviews, automated testing, implementation, code reviews, debugging, and documentation.
  • Design, build, test, and maintain scalable APIs, services, and systems within the platform
  • Build a smart way to offer new products and services while taking into consideration industry regulations.
  • Help with building and maintaining our back-end, CI, and cloud infrastructure.

What we're looking for:

  • 3+ years professional experience as a Software Engineer
  • Very strong understanding of at least one of the following programming languages: Python, Ruby, Go, or Node
  • Experience building and maintaining public-facing RESTful APIs that are designed to be use at scale
  • Experience writing maintainable and well-tested, server-side applications
  • Self-directed and self-motivated individuals comfortable working with diverse teams
  • Excellent English communication skills, verbal and written

Bonus Points:

  • Experience with Python / Django
  • Experience with AWS or other cloud services
  • Experience with GraphQL
