Platform Engineer, Core Services

Ibotta is looking for a Platform Engineer with our Core Services team to come build something great with us. As part of the Core Services engineering team, you will help build the services and systems the rest of the engineering organization is built on. We're looking for a self-motivated engineer who has a real passion for building and scaling infrastructure using technologies such as JavaScript, Java and Spring, Spark with Scala, AWS Lambda, Redis, and DynamoDB. Every engineer has input into our product process and will have a real impact as part of a small, nimble team.

Here is what you’ll be doing:

  • Work with a cross-functional team to design and develop the systems and services that other engineers in the company can build on.
  • Use Amazon’s AWS infrastructure and advanced services daily
  • Identify and fix performance bottlenecks
  • Work with big data sets and thousands of events a minute.
  • Write tests and perform code reviews to ensure that we're shipping reliable, readable, and reusable code
  • Ship production code daily
  • Research and implement technology solutions for reliable, scalable, high-performing services

Here is what we’re looking for:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or a related field and 2+ years of experience in software development
  • We work with Java and JavaScript on this team the most, but we value people who can learn new languages and provide diverse perspectives on design and implementation.
  • Extensive knowledge of SQL and NoSQL type databases like MySQL, Aurora, DynamoDB, and Redis is valuable, but knowing when to use each is far more important.
  • You’re comfortable with Unix-like operating systems. You don’t have to be some command-line wizard, but you’re also not falling for sudo rm -rf / either.
  • You know how to use Git. You still consult the internet for more advanced topics but you can get around just fine.
  • Knowledge of object-oriented software design, development, and architectural principles
  • You have big opinions on how we should work but they’re loosely held. You’re receptive to other points of views and more than willing to reconsider your position in light of new evidence.
