We are looking for a passionate and experienced back-end engineer to join our growing Gradle Enterprise team.
About Gradle Enterprise
Gradle Enterprise is a SaaS platform that derives insights from our customers' Gradle build metadata and presents them in a thoughtfully crafted, feature-rich ReactJS UI that lives on top of a carefully architected, scalabale back-end. The back-end stack behind this application is comprised of modern components: Java 8, Ratpack for high performance reactive http request handling, PostgreSQL for scalable storage and retrieval, many best-of-class external integrations, a fully automated packaging and deployment process, and runs on a popular PaaS.
Our back-end engineers are experts in server-side technologies and integrations, passionate about using the best available tools and techniques, and enjoy staying apprised of the ever-evolving back-end environment. Above all, we are committed to our mission to Build Happiness by delivering a delightful, polished, and fast user experience that helps make other engineers happier and more productive.
Our product is crafted by exceptionally committed and skilled developers, product designers, and marketing experts. Everyone at Gradle cares deeply about our company, our products, our customers, and the build automation domain in general. Our team is globally distributed but interacts daily through various communication channels. We value interpersonal relationships and meet in-person regularly to connect as a group.
Working at Gradle right now means participating in the formative development of a product that will become a pillar of the Gradle company and community as a whole. Delivering on this promise demands finding the right balance between perfection and speed, and quality and quantity. Our team embraces these challenges and thrives on the prospect of delivering a product that can tangibly improve the work-lives and productivity of our customers.
Ensuring a diverse and inclusive workplace where we learn from each other is essential to our values. We welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives.
Our ideal candidate has a success record of delivering testable, extensible, and scalable back-end architectures to production. While not necessarily Gradle experts, they do exhibit a deep understanding and interest in the automation domain. They thrive on challenging development and integration problems, understand the nuances of performance and memory optimization, possess and can capably articulate strong opinions, and feel comfortable collaborating with a distributed team.
