Contra is a professional network for the independent digital workforce. Digital professionals use Contra to create stunning visual profiles, earn money commission-free, and build high-quality professional communities and referral networks.

About the Role


We are looking for a Lead PostgreSQL Database Engineer/DBA to help us ensure high availability and quality of our professional network.


You will be the first dedicated Database Engineer/DBA hire. Your role will be to establish the best practices for the company, implement it, and (over time) build the database team.


This is a highly demanding role at a very fast-growing startup, working in a team of highly-accomplished, yet humble team who deeply care about the mission of the company. If you ever wanted to work on a rocketship, this is as close as it gets.


How you’ll add value at Contra:



  • Design enterprise-scale database schemas.

  • Ensure the database runs smoothly and securely.

  • Transform business requirements into relational database structures.

  • Craft readable, performant and scalable SQL queries.

  • Collaborate with the rest of the team through planning, code reviews and regular communication.

  • Plan for system expansion and suggest improvements.

  • Mentoring peers in database use.

  • Identify and troubleshoot problems with data quality.


You’ll be successful here if you:



  • Carefully plan your work and build for the future

  • Deliver transparent, honest, and direct feedback to your peers on an early-stage product

  • Enjoy participating in all parts of the product process, not just coding

  • Thrive in a remote-first environment

  • Are fluent in verbal and written English


Our stack:



  • TypeScript

  • Backend: Node.js, GraphQL, GraphQL Helix, Redis, PostgreSQL, Neo4j

  • DevOps: Gitlab CI/CD, ArgoCD, Kubernetes

  • Frontend: React, Suspense, & Relay


How Contra can add value for you:



  • Remote-first culture

  • Healthcare for employees

  • Well-funded company built to scale

  • Competitive salary + equity

  • Generous vacation policy + paid holidays off

  • Flexible parental leave

  • Team retreat post-COVID

  • No Meeting Wednesdays

  • Half day every third Friday of the month

  • A custom Slack emoji, just for you


Our interview process:



  • Complete a self-assessment form (10-15 minutes)

  • Non-technical (introduction & culture) interview (30-45 minutes)

  • Technical interview with CTO (30-45 minutes)

  • Technical interview with Backend Lead Engineer (30-45 minutes)


You will receive the final answer from Contra no later than 48 hours after your final interview.
