While you will be involved in all the projects the team is supporting, specifically you will be assisting on the daily essential tasks related to API such as generation, databases, etc. You will be responsible for ensuring the quality of our go codebase, which drives millions of dollars in revenue. We also expect every engineer to spend at least one day on customer support to understand our customer better.

We’re looking for a self-starter, who is communication focused with a deep sense of ownership and a team mentality to collaborate on achieving the best design/architecture for our systems.

You can expect to meet on a daily basis to go over task progress and design solutions.
