About the company

Most importantly our growth has never been stronger: we just closed our largest deal ever and won a prestigious award for being “what’s next” in CRM.

Job position
Relocation compensation available

Job description
We are looking for a Go engineer. We’re writing our next-gen API in Go, as well as starting to use it to process data and automate our infrastructure. That being said, a significant portion of our codebase is still in Ruby, so reading and writing Ruby is also going to be required.

You’ll be building new features and functionality against our stack

- REST API built in Go

- Primary datastore is MySQL; we also use Redis/Memcached/Elasticsearch.

- We’re building a thick client in Angular to consume the API.

- Large sections of our site are currently built in Ruby on Rails.

Skills & requirements
- 5+ years of experience building web apps. Ideally you’ve built high-traffic web apps before.

- Ideally you’ve written some projects in Go before, either for open source or professionally.

- Experience working with SQL databases (we use MySQL).

- Ruby experience is definitely a plus, as much of our code is Ruby.

Instructions how to apply
Want to join our team? Awesome! All you need to do is email jobs+go@uservoice.com and tell us why you think you’d be a good fit. Include a resume and a link to your github profile.
