  • Propose architectural decisions, and take part in designs, design review and code reviews and implementation
  • Build robust, lasting, and scalable products
  • Implementation of security and data protection
  • Optimization of the application for speed and scalability

Our current technology stack

  • Our backend systems are mostly written in Ruby (Sinatra), with some services written in Java and Python/Node (serverless apps)
  • AWS for most of our infrastructure
  • Postgres/Redis for data storage

What we're looking for:

  • Someone who gets excited by tough technical challenges
  • Someone who loves to learn, and is passionate about helping others
  • Experience with front-end apps and databases
  • Someone who can collaborate and work well with others
