  • Define code architecture decisions to support a high-performance and scalable product with a minimal footprint
  • Help improve engineering standards, tooling, and process.
You are a good fit if you:
  • Have strong hands-on programming experience as a MEAN Stack Developer
  • Have experience building in REST APIs, Websockets, SQL/No-SQL Databases (MongoDB), message queues, distributed caches, data pipelines
  • In-depth knowledge of NodeJS, ExpressJS or NestJS
  • Experience with GCP deployments and pipelines management is preferred
  • 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
