Job Title: Lead Engineer (Backend/Scaling)
Why work here?

  • Imagine working at a company where you will be instantly connected with a 500K user base that is growing at 3X YOY.
  • The company is profitable and has an 80 NET Promoter score on their product.
  • Absolutely no BS or bureaucracy – small team means you’ll probably be putting code into production within your first few days.

Our client offers its employees tremendous autonomy to set the pace and direction of your work. Competitive compensation based on experience, not to mention flexible hours, with the ability to work remotely 1-2 days per week.

As Lead Engineer (Backend/Scaling), you’ll be given the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of our client’s infrastructure. Through product improvement and new technology offerings, you will be exposed to scale and innovation, and receive mentorship and coaching from the CEO and CTO, both of whom have extensive experience and knowledge of technology products. Some tech stack elements you’ll touch may include the following: a mobile app in React Native, serverless pipeline in Node, a Rails JSON API, consumed by a React frontend (and by hardware devices), and a high-throughput Go server on Dynamo.
