The Role

The Backend Software Engineer is the technologist responsible for designing, developing, and maintaining our core Federated GraphQL APIs and backend micro services for all Go products and services.
The ideal candidate:

  • Loves to build maintainable APIs for client teams and work.

  • Has real-world experience designing and deploying Microservices and Federated GraphQL Schemas

  • Has experienced all stages of a software product lifecycle; from building an early alpha, to rapidly iterating measuring and learning, and on past large scale adoption.

  • Has a good understanding of Docker, managed Container Services, and the role they play in a microservices architecture.

  • Has experience designing solutions that run on AWS, Functions and ECS

  • Sees value in Unit Testing and striving for high code coverage

  • Enjoys mentoring junior developers and setting team coding standards

  • Takes downtime personally and is willing to respond to and troubleshoot production outages in real-time.

You must have professional, production experience in:

  • Node.js as TypeScript

  • MongoDB via Mongoose

  • SQL (AWS PostgreSQL a bonus!)

  • GraphQL using Apollo Server

  • Microservices architecture and deployments

  • AWS (e.g. S3, EC2, Lambda, etc)

  • Docker

  • An understanding of DevOps and Infrastructure as Code

As we are a startup, we are still building toward our ultimate vision, and are still building out our technical infrastructure. You will be one of a handful of engineers with a hand in charting the course! Planned upcoming technologies include:

  • Postgres or similar SQL database for data science & analytics-type work.

  • Redis or similar caching solution for common data reads (and some writes).

  • Pub/Sub or similar messaging/queueing system for processing asynchronous out-of-request tasks.

  • Federated GraphQL API Gateway

Tools we use every day:

  • Gitlab, and Jira for source control, PRs, and task & issue management

  • Confluence for Product and Feature requirements

  • Slack for team communications

  • Google Workspace for file storage, email, etc

Bonus experience includes:

  • Experience in recommendation or machine learning systems

  • Container services such as Docker and Kubernetes

  • Production availability & performance monitoring

  • Advanced Mongo Database experience with performance tuning

  • Experience with Database search and indexing solutions

The role requires at least five years of experience on a team building production client-server backend software deployments.
