Job description
Abstract is looking for engineers to help us develop Go HTTP services and command line applications. At Abstract we develop desktop and web applications that help teams design with confidence by providing a version control system and collaboration platform focused on design artifacts.

We're more interested in your ability to learn and solve problems than your specific programming language experience, so while previous Go experience would be ideal, it is not required.

We use Go throughout our application stack, so Go engineers on the team will enjoy a wide range of projects. We run numerous services written in Go on the web, and also interact with design data on the desktop using a CLI application written in Go.

In a typical week as a Go Engineer, you will:

Discuss, plan, and build new desktop features and web APIs

Diagnose performance issues and improve processing time for key operations

Triage and fix bugs, often working directly with our customers

Participate in peer code reviews through pull requests to make sure we're moving fast while also maintaining quality code bases

Collaborate with engineers and designers building user-facing features to decide how APIs and integrated libraries should work

Skills & requirements
Practical skills you'll need for success:

Experience building web applications

You have a product mindset and ask questions in order to improve the product, not only in its technical implementation but also in how well it’s serving the needs of our customers

The ability to make things happen even when work is fuzzy

You can clearly discuss and explain complex technical topics

You are committed to improvement, value collaboration, and understand technical trade-offs

When things inevitably break, you eagerly jump in to diagnose and fix the core issues

Bonus points if you have:

Designed APIs

Worked in an environment with microservices or another service-oriented architecture

Worked with libgit2 or one of its wrapper libraries, like git2go

Worked on small teams and are comfortable wearing multiple hats

An academic background in computer science
