Job Description

MaxMind (www.maxmind.com) is looking for a talented, experienced, and highly motivated Senior Software Engineer to help us develop and improve our products. We help protect thousands of companies worldwide from fraud, screening over a billion online transactions each year, and we provide IP intelligence data to thousands more. This work requires us to take on exciting challenges and we want you to help!

This is a full time remote position, and we welcome candidates to apply from the following states CA, FL, LA, MN, NV, NY (excluding New York City and Yonkers), NC, OR, PA, SD, TX, WA, WY and anywhere in Canada.

MaxMind does not currently sponsor US employment visas. For Canadian candidates, you must be eligible/authorized to work in Canada.

The Position

As a Senior Software Engineer, your job will be to carry out development projects both big and small. You may work on adding features to existing products, refactoring legacy code, fixing bugs in our open source APIs, or developing entirely new services. We're looking for an experienced software developer who can make good technical design decisions, write tests and documentation, and communicate well with non-developers.

Our salary range for our Senior Engineering roles begins at $135k USD or $165k CAD (in Canada), with the specific offer depending upon skills and experience. See more about benefits and compensation below.

Our Development Practices

Our backend code is largely written in Perl and Go using PostgreSQL and Linux. We maintain high standards for our development practices. New backend code is expected to be written in Go, include automated tests run by TeamCity, and go through internal code review on GitHub Enterprise. The existing Perl code is being slowly rewritten in Go.

We use free software as much as possible, and we release code back to the community when we can do so. We're always improving the way we do development, and we expect you to participate in that process.

About You - Minimum Qualifications:

  • Significant experience with static and dynamic programming languages. The position will primarily involve programming in Go and Perl. A programming exercise will be given to all applicants.
  • Strong knowledge of SQL, preferably Postgres in particular.
  • Familiarity with web service development.
  • Experience developing for deployment on a Linux or similar platform.
  • Experience writing tests and documentation.
  • Experience doing code reviews.
  • Excellent written and spoken communication skills.
  • The ability to work with a geographically dispersed team.

Highly desired

  • Polyglots or those with an interest in picking up new languages. Though most of our code is Perl and Go, we maintain open source libraries in several different languages.
  • Open source contributions. Tell us about them!
  • An interest in performance and security.
  • Experience working with Google Cloud Platform (or another cloud provider). Our systems run on GCP.

Working at MaxMind

In a recent survey, employees listed having a supportive work culture, good co-workers, autonomy, and feeling trusted, valued, and respected as some of the things they like most about working here.

MaxMind has a social mission. MaxMind donates over 60% of profits to charities.

MaxMind’s compensation strives to reward getting stuff done, quality of work, and working well with others.

Our culture is very important to us. We’re friendly, collaborative, and work-focused. We don’t like office politics and unnecessary stress. We like to have productive workdays and don’t like work to chase us when we’re done for the day. We maintain a set of core, overlapping hours, but are flexible with specific start and end times and are understanding about appointments and life events. We care about helping each other succeed.

We are a fully remote company so communication centers around video chat, group chat, and Agile planning tools.

Benefits

In addition to competitive compensation, our US benefits include medical, dental, vision, life, and short and long term disability insurance, a Safe Harbor 401(k) with employer contribution, Health Savings Account, Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account, Dependent Care Account, and paid parental leave.

Our Canadian benefits include medical, dental, vision, life, accidental death and dismemberment, critical Illness, short and long term disability insurance, Employee and Family Assistance Program, and paid parental leave. You also have access to a group Retirement Savings Plan. In lieu of a Canadian RRSP contribution we provide a bonus payout at the end of each year that employees may decide to use toward retirement savings.

Everyone participates in a company performance-based bonus plan. MaxMind offers a $2,000 professional development budget and five days for professional development annually.

Diversity and Inclusion

We're committed to diversity and inclusion and are mindful of incorporating them into all aspects of our company.

We encourage and sincerely welcome applications from candidates of color, women, queer candidates, candidates with family caregiving responsibilities, transgender candidates, and from other communities not well represented in the tech world.

See our complete diversity and inclusion statement - https://www.maxmind.com/en/company/working-at-maxmind.

Our Interview Process

The first step is to complete a homework assignment. We ask for this so that we can gain insight into your work, and to make sure it aligns with what we are looking for. The next step would be a first round interview with our hiring manager and another engineer. This will be a technical interview combined with a pairing session. Next, there would be a final interview with two other team members. That interview would be a more general / behavioral interview. The final step of our hiring process is reference checking.

Resumes without cover letters will not be considered. We want to know about you, please share any projects or accomplishments and include a link so we can learn more.

6 Applicants This Week

Job Description

At Horizon, we’re building a New Dimension where Internet economies are fun, accessible, and for the benefit of all participants.

We have two amazing products to make this real:

Sequence, which consists of i) the first user-friendly smart wallet for crypto, NFTs, Web3 + the metaverse, and ii) a developer platform to make building Web3 applications easy on Ethereum and other EVM chains.

And Skyweaver, a digital trading card game—powered by Sequence—where players can win, own, trade and sell their NFT game items.

Sequence is poised to drive Web3 adoption on a massive scale by making blockchain easy, fun and powerful for users and developers. And, Skyweaver is a groundbreaking video game with an unprecedented player-owned economy, novel gameplay, and an already fervent community.

While the challenge is hard, we find it incredibly fun. And, we have the ingredients to make it happen: a well-capitalized company with some of the best investors in the world (Reddit co-founder, Coinbase, Initialized, and more), an amazing team of leaders in the blockchain space, engineers who have built widely popular open source, a former top McKinsey strategy consultant, gaming industry veterans, and founders who have built and sold successful companies.

You enjoy building scalable, fault-tolerant systems. You understand the meaning of value and delivering products that achieve business outcomes while laying the foundation of great tech that affects our entire org, and is impactful. This matters to you.

As a senior engineer, you have a deep understanding of designing robust, well-designed code with thoughtful architecture. You can drive and self-direct major areas of our stack. While not a strict requirement, you are comfortable working with and guiding more intermediate and junior engineers when needed.

Given our size, self-driven, and open-minded engineers will thrive best in this role. While small, you'll be working alongside some of the best engineers, and open-source contributors—and a company dedicated to your success. You will learn a lot.

Responsibilities:

-Architect, develop, and implement the infrastructure, and infrastructure stack of Skyweaver and Sequence -Design and implement services that are scalable, and fault-tolerant -Build services that interface with the Ethereum blockchain -Contribute to open source works in the Sequence stack -Extend and evolve our toolchain, to run our stack effectively -Design architectural foundations that are robust and sound, so that future engineers can build on your work with ease and speed

Why Horizon?

· A chance to deliver massive impact at a small and quickly growing company · Competitive salary and equity package · Accelerate your career by joining at the early stages · Be part of defining Web3, the next generation of the Internet, and creating symbiotic economies where both users and creators share in the value generated by networks · Work with an outstanding team made of wonderful people who have built and sold successful companies, launched amazing products, and have rich experience in infrastructure, architecture, blockchain, games, finance, investing, strategy, consulting, design, marketing, community, and more. · Work life balance unlike the “crunch” culture you find at larger studios · New PC, and generous allowance for work-from-home setup · Health, vision and dental benefits for Canadian employees · We’re conscious about mental health and have modern vacation policies · We invest in everyone’s personal development and subsidize courses, books, and conferences, so you never stop learning · Work on hard, big, meaningful problems that can shift markets · Learn more about our values and the traits we embody at https://careers.horizon.io/

$100,000 to $150,000 a year

Job Description

tl;dr: We're looking for an excellent engineer with solid Go experience to join our small, distributed development team. We're in Los Angeles, San Francisco & Paris; substantial time-zone overlap with CET (Paris) is key because our lead frontend engineer lives & works there.

Who we are

At Synthro, we are creating Foam, a new paradigm to collect, organize, create, and share your data, to help people think better together.

While we have developed core elements of the experience, we have many technical challenges ahead. Our team collaborates and leverages process, automated testing and group decision-making to get stuff done.

Our technology environment is Linux based, runs in AWS and utilizes Go, React, and JavaScript. We are leveraging an array of AWS services to deliver our solution and extensively take advantage of open-source solutions.

We're in the scrappy startup phase: we all work from home, even before the pandemic.

Role overview

We're hiring a Backend Developer to work with our team. You will focus on the backend for our web app. You will work closely with our frontend developer and be responsible for the API, data models, architecture, and AWS environment.

We love junior developers, but this role is for someone senior.

About you

Here's how to tell if you'd be a good fit for this job.

Must-haves

  • You've built and shipped Go services (RESTful, HTTP), preferably something you can share with us
  • You dream in idiomatic Go (2+ years experience highly desired)
  • You don’t feel like you’re done until you have 85% unit test coverage
  • You have solid knowledge of Postgres, specifically stored procedures & triggers
  • You have solid working knowledge of core AWS services (ECS, EC2, RDS, S3, Cloudfront, Route 53)
  • Your git history reflects you’re an excellent written (and verbal) communicator

Nice-to-haves

  • You have worked from home or remotely for a distributed team
  • You have experience with infrastructure-as-code (we use Terraform on AWS)
  • You live in or within an hour of CET (Paris)

Why you might want to work with us

  • We're small, so there are no layers of bureaucracy to work through. You can have a huge impact here.
  • We have as few meetings as we can get away with.
  • You can work remotely as long as you have substantial overlap with our primary time zones, Pacific and Central European. We call these “office” hours.
  • Outside of “office” hours, you can work whenever you like.

Why you might not want to work with us

  • We’re a startup, with all the good and bad that comes with that.
  • We’re a small team. At the end of the day, you need to be able to solve your own problems.
  • You own the infrastructure so you need to deal with it when it breaks.

Pay

We're looking for someone great, not someone cheap. If you're expensive but amazing, we can probably make it work.
