Our client is a Y-Combinator alumni startup that has built a platform and tools to automate communication with customers...while not losing that personal touch! 

Our client’s core backend is built with Go and use Python for E2E testing, but they are constantly exploring tech that best fits the needs of their customers and engineers. They believe in using the best tools for the job, and value engineering expertise over language prowess.

  • Find improving engineering standards, tooling, and processes rewarding
  • Uphold best practices in engineering, security and design
  • Hold yourself and others to a high level of accountability when working with production
  • Can effectively debug complex problems across the whole stack
  • Enjoy doing whatever it takes to solve problems and delight users

What you will do:

  • Thrive in a collaborative environment developing and executing against immediate and long term roadmaps and making effective tradeoffs considering business priorities, but always with the user experience in mind
  • Write high quality, performant code that sees tons of exposure and user feedback in a growing, fast-pace, startup environment
  • Lead integration efforts using various platforms and technologies.
  • Inform critical decisions with consideration for software best practices, system design, and product roadmap
  • Scrutinize and reason clearly about the technology and architecture choices we make in building platforms or products/services
  • Serve as a role model for software design and scalable systems architecture by developing, sharing, and setting the bar for engineering quality
