Senior Backend Software Engineer - Product (Santa Monica, CA)

Our engineering culture embraces...

  • Collaboration: Our team environment is founded on open communication & ego-free engineering
  • Continuous Learning (CL): We love CI/CD but CL is just as important - Dev Days, Hackathons, sponsored certifications, and more will keep you growing in your career
  • Productivity: It'll take you a month to be able to commit code at some companies, but we have goals for you to commit in just 2 days
  • Flexibility: Everyone is productive in their own way, and our teams have flexible schedules and/or work-from-home policies to make that happen
  • Meritocracy & Recognition: Day-to-day accomplishments are rewarded with opportunity, but we also take time during our all-hands meetings to celebrate the personal side of our employees' lives

In this role you will...
  • Work within an Agile engineering team to develop robust and reliable software solutions used by over 3000 clients to engage over 40 million people
  • Redesign existing systems and build new scalable micro services architecture on AWS with .NET Core services
  • Collaborate closely with product, UI/UX, and central engineering teams to build elegant and scalable web applications
  • Work with SDETs, SREs, and others to help automate manual processes and inefficiencies
  • Work with more junior engineers to help them achieve their career goals
  • Be curious, collaborate, and grow your career

You've got what it takes if you have...
  • BS/MS in Computer science or a related field, or equivalent industry experience
  • 3+ years of experience in full stack development of external-facing web applications
  • Experience developing services using modern API standards such as REST or GraphQL
  • Experience with relational databases and SQL
  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Strong analytical skills to help solve complex problems in an enterprise environment
  • Comfort with working collaboratively and being a great teammate

Extra dose of awesome if you have...
  • Experience with C# .NET (but we interview language agnostically)
  • Familiarity with Single Page Application (SPA) frameworks such as React.js, Vue.js or Angular
  • Experience with AWS or other cloud platforms
  • Experience with non-relational databases such as DynamoDB or MongoDB
  • Experience with automated testing frameworks such as Jest and Cypress

Our Culture:

Our mission is to empower people, businesses and communities. A culture created less by what we do and more by who we are. When people are asked to describe the team, the answer is always the same: Smart, Cool, Dependable, and Visionary. We are not a typical tech company (even with our unlimited vacation, paid sabbaticals, generous stock units, education reimbursement, because, well, our employees aren't your typical techies...)

We're always on the lookout for new, curious and capable people who can help us achieve our goal. So if you want to work for a friendly, global and innovative company, we'd love to meet you! What are you waiting for?
