Come join a sustainably profitable, small company and see the impact of your work.

What our Software Engineers do:

  • Engineer business solutions and a highly available, self-healing platform (using best practices) that can handle the massive amounts of our customers' data as we scale, optimized for high performance, efficiency, stability and quality, using our techstack which includes:
  • Docker, Swarm
  • Cassandra, Postgres, ElasticSearch, Redis (we're fans of polyglot persistence, and use what makes the most sense for scaling. We have over 50 servers with 20+ services and multiple datacenters to sync…)
  • Tornado, Django, AsyncIO, and Celery
  • Keep up with our API partners as they grow and change (Facebook, Twitter, Salesforce… those kind of API partners!)
  • Set our Engineering teammates up for success by writing thorough documentation, reusable libraries, and reliable tests
  • Collaborate closely with internal stakeholders (like Product, QA, and Support, to start) to ensure a stellar Customer Experience of our product end-to-end

  • Built a live, self-healing product relying on distributed systems, using non-relational databases (bonus points if it scaled to support more clients)
  • Big fan of automation - our entire development and deployment pipeline (for our social media product) is automated using Ansible, Stackstorm (IFTTT), and Hashicorp Consul
  • Top-notch team communicator, share knowledge with peers, create tools that helps Devs be more productive and utilize the tools and process we use, like Slack, Jira and GitHub, and happy to work with legacy code
