About the Role

We are looking for an experienced Backend Software Engineer to develop impactful features and maintain site reliability to take our product innovation to the next level.

  • Keep an eye out for new products and technologies that could help us solve problems in a more elegant way
  • Implement bug fixes and performance improvements, while staying mindful of future maintenance and scalability

We value code quality and simplicity and thus...

  • Thoroughly review pull requests to make sure we collaboratively reach an elegant, performant, and tested solution (when quick fixes are needed, we make sure to spend time with follow-up PRs)
  • Prefer code duplication over wrong abstraction
  • Don’t have a staging/QA environment
  • Don’t host anything we can use a SaaS/PaaS provider for
