  • Establish an engineering culture of high-value technical decisions, in which Engineers understand how the platform impacts the business.
  • Guide the team to successfully build features, write automated tests and refactor code.
  • Manage and build a team of engineers, helping them grow as professionals; mentor and coach your engineering team leads to make them effective at managing their teams.
  • Contribute to the product roadmap with the VP of Product to balance product and technology features according to stakeholders’ needs.
  • Manage the technical debt, establish measures to reduce it and ensure the architectures continuously evolves.

Our tech stack

  • In the frontend we are React lovers. We use Redux, CSS-in-JS, TypeScript, NodeJS and all tools related to this stack.
  • Our backend is powered by Golang and PostgreSQL. We’re almost done moving our backend to a service-oriented architecture (microservices). Our main infrastructure is in Google Cloud Platform.
  • We've been using React, GraphQL and Golang in production environments since the early days. A few years ago we started using Kubernetes, and nowadays all our new services run in the cluster. 
  • Our data infrastructure is a mix of in-house and 3rd party solutions, trying to be as light and scalable as possible. We are running all our jobs on Airflow using Google Cloud Composer. We have a strong track record of successful machine learning projects, all running in the cluster. These products are used either to enhance our internal processes or to enrich the experience of our users. In this domain, we love Python and gave a try to basically all the libraries and algorithms available out there (scikit-learn, Keras, XGBoost, LightGBM).
