Role Overview

The role requires you to think critically and design with first principles. You should be comfortable with multiple moving parts, microservices architecture, de-coupled services, and multi-threaded programming. Given you are constructing the core foundation on which the whole system will be built, you need to pay very close attention to detail, and have a forward-thinking outlook while maintaining scrappiness for the present needs. You are very comfortable learning new technologies, and systems. You thrive in an iterative but heavily test-driven development environment.


  • Design and build the core services, infrastructure, and system architecture
  • Experiment, prototype, measure, and make data-driven technology stack decisions
  • Implement web-services, business-logic, APIs for the Relyance product interface
  • Design and build the Relyance Intelligence Engine’s data pipelines, and machine learning infrastructure
  • Help improve engineering standards, tooling, and process

You are a good fit if you:

  • Have strong hands-on programming experience in either C++ (14/20), Python 3.X, or GO
    Note: Languages/Tools can be learned. We care more about solid foundational engineering skills rather than a particular language or framework
  • Have experience building in REST APIs, Websockets, SQL/No-SQL Databases (MongoDB), message queues, distributed caches, data pipelines
  • Enjoy building distributed/scalable backend infrastructure with a microservices-first design
  • Are extremely comfortable crafting elegant multi-threaded programs, and services
  • Have a strong grasp of CS fundamentals, data structures, and algorithms
  • Hold yourself to a very high bar for production system quality
  • Love to demonstrate, and incrementally build 100% confidence in all the layers/components you develop. 
  • Have a deep sense of appreciation for test-driven methodology
  • Are unafraid of the unknowns, can handle many moving parts
  • Love driving projects end-to-end to deliver business
  • Deeply care about resource frugality and performance
  • ALWAYS take a customer-first and team-first approach
