About the company
Abstract is a design workflow management platform supporting modern design teams with version control, file management, and team collaboration. Since launching our Beta in July 2017, customers like Github, Shopify, Unity, are using Abstract to manage their design workflow. Abstract is a technically ambitious product and we’re looking forward to seeing how you can contribute to these goals. The best candidates will be capable and enthusiastic about building out a world-class team and product with us.
- Remote work possible
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:

You can clearly discuss and explain complex technical topics
You are committed to improvement, value collaboration, and understand technical trade-offs
