  • Collaborating with key internal stakeholders to determine how to scalably design backend systems and APIs to meet their needs

  • Helping lead features/initiatives from idea to positive execution
  • Working closely with Product to slice and dice scope and deliver piece by piece
  • Sharing your knowledge by giving tech talks, and promoting appropriate tech and engineering best practices in and outside of the team

About you:

  • You have experience of thriving in an environment that has a fast customer-feedback cycle and having empathy for the end-user
  • You are great at making data-driven and metric-driven decisions
  • You have a drive for leading initiatives and features till the end, even if the last mile is the hardest
  • You feel at home with microservice architecture and you are experienced in API design
  • You have strong principles towards writing clean, simple, secure, and maintainable code
  • You have a deep understanding of how to write readable, testable, maintainable, and performant code
  • You possess solid understanding of algorithms and data structures

Experience is great, but what we really look for is drive, intelligence, and integrity. So even if you don’t tick every box, please consider applying if you feel you’re the kind of person described above!
