  • Write unit tests, integration tests, and e2e tests
  • Manage technical debt and risk
  • Take technical ownership for the testing and performance plans for the assigned projects
  • Design the back-end work needed to complete the epic, and communicate that design proposal for review (for more complex epics)
  • Ask technical questions that may impact user experience

Job Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in Engineering, Computer Science (or equivalent experience)
  • At least 3+ years of relevant experience as a back-end engineer

  • Prior experience with memory management including garbage collection, event loop and asynchronous processing, clusters and worker threads
  • Working experience with an APM (e.g. New Relic, Data Dog)
  • Experience with Typescript and containerization would be preferred
  • Experience with at least one CI/CD software is desirable (Jenkins, Gitlab, or Teamcity)
  • Experience in resolving production incidents
  • Prior experience with designing epics
  • Sound knowledge of at least one logging tool (e.g. Kibana, PaperTrail, etc.)
