Power the Peloton Experience
As a member of Peloton’s Product API team you’ll be the one powering every user experience across Bike, Tread, mobile, web, TV and beyond, across the world. We help users take live and on-demand classes, send each other high-fives, compete on the leaderboard, take part in challenges, discover new music, and much more. We are building an API that changes people’s lives.
We are looking for collaborative, senior engineers with an emphasis on microservices. You'll help guide our efforts in building services for our backend API. You will work with the team to break out services relevant to our expanding business domains and produce high quality, reliable software for our internal and external users.
You are someone who thinks about simplicity, and works to provide solutions that reduce the complexity across services. You are team-focused and prioritize collective learning in addition to solving problems. You build collective ownership amongst the team by contributing to code reviews, designs, whiteboarding, and pair-programming.
In your first weeks, you’ll learn about our API and start to familiarize yourself with some of the challenges that we are facing. You'll contribute to our existing efforts to build a service-oriented architecture and split out services from the monolithic application. In addition, you’ll be a lead as we think about our international strategy.
In the following months you'll start contributing to major features and evaluate how they can fit into a service-oriented architecture. You'll help make the tough decisions around migrating code and databases, and transition traffic from our monolith to our new services and ensure their success. Finally, you'll help educate new team members and promote ways to improve quality across all our services at scale.
