Senior Backend Engineer – Fans
Live shows make us feel good. They’re a time to hang with our friends, discover new artists or lose ourselves on a dance floor. We’re on a mission to bring all of this to more fans, more often – and that’s where you come in.
We’re looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join our Product team and help more fans get to shows they love.
At DICE, you’ll be part of the company that’s redefining live entertainment. It's a place where you can be yourself, influence the culture, and create work that you’re proud of.
About the role
Our only customer is the fan, and you’ll build the backend that gets them to the perfect show. Our backend apps are written mostly in Elixir and Go. They feed information to our apps with GraphQL and REST API, handling millions of transactions for ticket sales.
Here’s some more context: our code is hosted in GitHub, which we use for pull requests and code reviews. Our pipelines are managed by Travis CI and each commit builds a Docker container. We spin up short term Kubernetes clusters with the new feature branch of the app you’re working on so our QA team can test your feature in the entire stack. Then we merge the code and push it to the production cluster. That’s it :)

During the pandemic, we’ve learned that working from home can help us focus, but many of us are missing the buzz of the office. We’re still figuring out the best way for us all to work together in the future, and we’ll involve the whole team in any decisions we make.
Our process usually involves a quick chat on the phone, a portfolio review or task and a couple of interviews where you’ll meet the people you’ll work with. We’ll keep you fully informed along the way.
