Staff Backend Engineer
Vancouver City, British Columbia, CA
Job Description / Skills Required

Help build a multi-tenant SaaS serving 3000+ global companies. Create robust backend services capable of hundreds of requests per second. Join a team that's redefining what product management systems can be.  

Our Tech Stack

  • Our stack is a Ruby on Rails backend with React.js and Typescript on the frontend
  • We're running Elasticsearch to power our Insights search
  • We are fully migrated to Kubernetes on AWS to enable an event-driven service architecture, using Kafka to let services communicate together asynchronously and resiliently
  • We are also exploring to use Typescript more and more on the backend as well. However we don't see our Ruby development slowing down anytime soon

You'll be expected to work on everything from the above, but we're not expecting deep knowledge in all of it. We strive to build up everything backed by code and reliable pipelines which will get you on track at lightning speed. We're always open to changes which can make us better!

  • Your code is clean and well tested, you own development from discovery to production deployment
  • You love to learn and constantly improve your own skills, and are not afraid to jump into new things
  • You like communicating with frontend or product management and you always keep the end-user in mind.
