Backend Engineer (Senior)

Raya App - Los Angeles, CA

In a world where many social apps measure their success by time spent online, Raya is a technology company focused on providing utility. Our iOS only app is a tool for discovery of and access to exciting people, events, opportunities and recommendations globally. We believe that by marrying great software with a membership based community built around core values of trust, creativity, and reciprocity, we can provide solutions that have heretofore been impossible.

Senior Backend Engineers at Raya love backend engineering and have been recognized as leaders in past roles! You are excited to work in a Node codebase. The ideal candidate will have had 3 or 4 years of experience at at least one company and grown within the organization, demonstrating both loyalty and leadership. You will join the backend team at the early stages of the company and will have all the excitement and accountability that comes from joining a fast growing, well funded, Los Angeles startup (we think it's the best opportunity in LA - check our why us page).

Raya’s team includes the 3rd designer of Facebook, one of the first 10 engineers at Venmo, the PM who launched the like button, the engineer who founded Flipagram and a lot of other amazing people. We prioritize learning and teamwork and love giving people the opportunity to champion big challenges and grow into better versions of themselves. A great candidate is excited to support the backend team's initiatives in messaging, connecting, and location based maps initiatives. They are diligent and designs software architecture in a scalable manner. Finally, they believe in Raya’s vision, which is to enrich lives by fostering relationships through quality, in person interactions.

We offer comprehensive medical and dental coverage, $50 a day grubhub budget, equity based employment, a great culture, learning opportunities, unlimited vacation, 12 weeks paid parental leave, and we pay all employees $1,000 a year to go somewhere in the world that they’ve never been because of our values of human connection, empathy, and curiosity.
