The team balances short term improvements to unblock new features, with large-scale re-imagining of how software is written at the company.

What you’ll achieve

  • Produce high-quality design and code which enable new ways for product engineers to build features
  • Own particular areas of our frameworks, and actively advocate for how they can be improved
  • Solve to novel engineering problems, balancing product performance and engineer velocity
  • Evangelize good code and solid engineering and operability practices

About you

  • 4+ years of software engineering experience, ideally with some experience building APIs, frameworks, or database abstraction layers.
  • Excellent communication skills for collaborating with other teams
  • Sound judgment when balancing moving quickly with producing quality code and long-term code maintainability
