Our mission is to elevate the craft of content designers and UX writers so they can do what they do best: help organizations build better products through content. Our goal is to give writers direct ownership and control of their work, reduce dependencies, and minimize developers' time managing copy.
We are looking for our first full-time backend engineer to join us on our mission. You'll have ownership in building new products and features while working with our founding team.
Our ideal candidate has 5+ years of experience building event driven micro-services or service oriented architectures and has built most facets, if not all, in a "twelve-factor" app. Preference is for real experience (2+ years) in our primary language of Golang, but other languages are considered when able to quickly pick up new technologies. Additional experience in schema design, relational databases, search engines, cloud services (AWS, GCP, etc), message systems, and API design are considered.
You will directly influence how and what to build, and must be comfortable collaborating on the architecture, code, product, etc as we have a strong culture of devops as well as being technically curious, thoughtful and purposeful in what we build. We value deploying frequently with well-written, maintainable, instrumented and tested code to a kubernetes cluster.
