Job description
Valimail is a fast growing, venture funded startup and the leader in Email Authentication as a Service. Here is your chance to get in on the ground floor at an important technology innovator and to help build a major business service category. We have built a revolutionary platform on top of open standards — DMARC, DKIM, and SPF — for the first time it makes it possible for any organization to protect itself against email impersonation. Valimail pioneered the notion of automated email authentication, with innovative components like our DNS-based Authenticator (including our patented Instant SPF). We’re committed to building a more trusted email ecosystem.

Frequently cited statistics show that women and underrepresented classes will only apply to roles if they feel they meet 100% of the qualifications. At Valimail, we encourage you to break through that statistic. Roles evolve over time, especially with innovation, and you may be just the person we need in the future. NO ONE ever meets 100% of the qualifications. We hope you're open to learning new skills in order to grow with us. Make our team, your team!

Position Overview
As Valimail’s newest Staff Platform Engineer, you’ll be a major contributor to the company’s success. You’ll share in the design, development, and deployment of major pieces of the Valimail system. Your technical contributions will help protect dozens of brands, authenticate hundreds of millions of emails every day, and protect people all over the world from fraud.

If you like the idea of working on planetary-scale messaging systems with some of the latest tools and making a difference in the lives of half the world’s population, we’d love to talk to you.

What You'll Be Doing: 
Building and maintaining high performance, scalable data pipelines
Helping ensure that engineering quality goals (test coverage and automation) are met or exceeded as part of the definition of done.
Building internal tooling to aid other Valimail departments in the performance of their job duties
Helping analyze and resolve any code performance or scalability issues as reported by internal stakeholders

About You: 
Extensive experience building high performance backend systems
8-10 years backend programming experience in more than three languages, including 3 + years using a functional and object oriented language (we use Golang)
Experience working with RDBMS (PostgreSQL), Message Queues (Kafka, SQS), NoSQL 
(DynamoDB), and external caching (Redis)
Experience with Data Warehouse/Analytics Design and Implementation, even better if you have experience with Redshift, Clickhouse, Snowflake or similar column-oriented database management systems
Experience in API design and consumption patterns and best practices
Experience building, provisioning, and deploying services in AWS in an automated fashion
Dedication to automation across the board: testing, coding standards, deployment, configuration management, etc. Passion for unit and integration tests
Commitment to using the right tool for the job
Ability to quickly diagnose and resolve problems, self-sufficiently understand code-bases 

Bonus Points:
Proficiency using Linux Shell. Advanced SQL (Joins, Aggregations, implication of normalization)
Track record of contributing to or maintaining open source projects
Prior involvement with standards bodies such as the IETF
Ability to shepherd sophisticated technical concepts through external parties with competing interests, such as open source communities and standards bodies
Deep expertise with network protocols like DNS
Understanding of email authentication standards
Passion for security

Who We Are
Valimail is the global leader in zero-trust email security. The company's full line of cloud-native solutions authenticate sender identity to stop phishing, protect brands, and ensure compliance; they are used by organizations ranging from neighborhood shops to some of the world's largest organizations, including Uber, Splunk, Yelp, Mercedes Benz USA, and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration.

Why Join Us?
Competitive pay + participation in employee stock option plan
Comprehensive health, dental, + vision coverage
Eight weeks of paid maternity leave & Four weeks of paid paternity leave (if the parent also qualifies for STD, this benefit is in addition)
Remote First Company, you can work anywhere within the US
Unlimited and flexible PTO. We believe balanced, happy, relaxed people do better work
