- Remote work possible
We’re looking for an experienced Gopher, who loves not just coding but rather solving problems. Who knows when to be passionate about code quality and tooling and design patterns, and when to hack something, quick and dirty. And who knows how to be passionate without an attitude. Ideally, you’d strive to go beyond Golang: Our backend also has Python and Java parts, more to come, so if either interests you, yes, that’s great!
Skills & requirements
We’re a startup. You will wear many hats. Here are some:
Code. Both new features and updates of existing functionality.
Be part of the dev process: Understand the requirements by talking to Avner, our COO. Discuss your design with your colleagues. Get your PR reviewed. (We review every PR.) Work with QA to make sure your stuff works.
Improve the dev process: Initiate and moderate discussions to make the reviews more effective, the deployments faster, the time-to-production shorter.
Maintain our production system. We don’t need mere coders: We’ve a product to run! And we believe that we build things in a more useful way, if we’re the ones deploying and running them, too. (The DevOps philosophy.)
You’ll improve things! Our product, the tools and processes, your colleagues and you: All of these need to get better. And we expect you to spend time on that. In particular, we expect you to help your fellow coders grow, with reviews, PP and feedback talks.
Teach others what you learn, grow the tech community and grow yourself by doing it.
Here’s what we expect:
5 years’ experience developing backend applications, 2y in Golang. Don’t stick to the numbers—but you should have serious experience.
Experience with databases, both NoSQL (e.g. Mongo, Redis, CouchDB), and RDBMS (e.g. MySQL or PostgreSQL)
Experience with VCS, ideally Git
Exposure to Docker or other container technologies
Fundamentals in networking (ports, subnet masks, TCP, SSL, SSH tunneling, iptables should be familiar terms to you)
Strong problem solving and troubleshooting skills
