The Client Engineering Team builds applications, APIs, and design systems that empower our members – and developers – to make the most of the spaces where they live, work, and play. These interfaces help members navigate, visualize, and access space on a global scale. We call this digital infrastructure for the physical world.
As a backend engineer on our client team, you will be building services that power We Company applications. Our backend engineers aggregate various sources of truth for purpose-built, easy to use APIs.
You may be a fit for this role if you:
Enjoy building developer-friendly APIs
Put the customer first – you are motivated more by the value you bring to end users than the technology itself
Love working with many different stakeholders across design, engineering, product, and security
Take testing and observability seriously. You've run apps in production and understand the value of good tests, monitoring, and error tracking
Thrive in a collaborative, empathetic environment. You understand the patience, communication, and teamwork that it takes to deliver challenging projects
Have a strong CS background
Projects we’re working on:
Here are a few projects you could work on with us!
A GraphQL service that ties together multiple GRPC sources of truth for space, identity, and physical access control
An access control API that lets developers grant access to WeWork spaces in a few lines of code
A mobile credential management service that integrates with multiple hardware providers, giving WeWork members the ability to enter buildings and rooms with just a mobile phone
Backend GIS data pipelines merging WeWork's physical space model, analytics layers and the map of the world
