About the Job
The Supply and Demand engineering team is focused on providing effective solutions for managing schedules and recommendations for users on both sides of our market — we provide the tools that enable customers to find the right people for their needs, and for Taskers to make their skills available to the right clients. We play a vital role in both the success of TaskRabbit as well as the success of thousands of people that have used us to find work. We achieve this through strong collaboration with Product Managers, Designers, and other business stakeholders with a focus on scalability and impact.
As a Senior Full Stack Engineer on the Supply and Demand team, you'll be responsible for delivering high-quality code that supports our backend architecture and API, allowing us to scale out solutions for everything from schedule management to demand forecasting to recommendations. You'll have the opportunity to partner with cross-functional stakeholders and guide projects through the development life cycle, from gathering requirements to building to deploying. We'll look to you to leverage and improve existing solutions in our codebase while also identifying opportunities and driving discussions for best practices and performance gains.
Join us in creating a better everyday life for everyday people.
You will be:
- Collaborating with design and product management to conceptualize new product features from the ground up.
- Contributing to our technical roadmap of ongoing improvements, enhancements and updates.
- Solving complex problems related to debugging, testing, and deploying code.
- Mentoring more junior software engineers to help them think through designs, code implementation, and how to break down their goals into actionable steps.
- Participating in code reviews while providing feedback and guidance.
- Investing in the documentation of best practices and coding patterns.
- Collaborating across engineering teams to promote consistency.
You should have:
- 5+ years of experience delivering scalable and maintainable applications.
- Proficiency with all parts of the software development lifecycle, including testing and release management.
- Experience building API-driven applications.
- Strong analytical and communication skills. We’re a distributed team with flexible working hours, so we’re extra mindful about communication.
- A willingness to both collaborate and work independently.
It would be a plus if you have:
- Experience with mobile development (React Native is a plus).
- Experience with REST, GraphQL or any Federated API design.
- Experience with Elasticsearch or similar data search solutions.
- Experience with event-driven architecture.
- Experience with double-sided marketplaces.
- Experience leading and delivering cross-functional projects.
- A growth mindset and a desire to learn, teach, and mentor others.
