We have a relentless focus on automation, so you will be writing code on a daily basis, as well as staying up-to-date with cutting edge technologies. Kubernetes and GCP are key for us, and we write most of our code in Golang, although we are a polyglot team where constant learning is vital. You would be joining a genuinely team-based agile environment where people skills really matter. We have retained the startup mentality, but with enough muscle to make a real difference.

  • Develop and expand our ecosystem of composable, reusable, isolated, single-purpose services, with a keen eye on good API design and usage
  • Create highly testable and rock-solid service implementations
  • Debug production issues across services and levels of the stack
  • Make important engineering decisions that balance numerous non-engineering factors with technical considerations
  • Continuously measure and optimize the performance, effectiveness, and uptime of backend services -- participate in a data-driven culture
  • Research, prototype, and implement solutions to thorny data and scale problems using the best available tools
  • Thrive in a fast-paced environment, continuously working to adapt to ever-evolving customer needs
