Job Description

Meet Our Engineering Team!

The GetUpside Engineering Team is a close-knit group of hardworking, fast-learning individuals that believes in our mission to help communities thrive. We believe in a data-driven approach to decision-making and an encouraging culture that emphasizes learning from our mistakes. We debate and deliberate on the best ideas to improve our tech stack, and strive for an inclusive atmosphere that champions the psychological wellness of all of our teammates.

Our Tech Stack:

  • AWS to run our microservices in a message-oriented-architecture
  • Java 8 / Dropwizard / 12-factor apps
  • Python 3 / Serverless AWS Lambdas
  • MySQL & DynamoDB
  • S3 & Athena
  • Jenkins / Github / Terraform
What You'll Do:
  • Work on a team of up to 5-6 engineers + a product manager on our larger projects and sometimes individually on smaller, bite-sized improvements.
  • Deliver new product features in support of our mobile apps for users and web dashboards for merchants and improve our existing products’ ability to scale with a growing user and merchant demand.
  • Build Java REST services to act in concert with our AWS-based message-oriented architecture and also build Python “glue” logic, deployed on AWS Lambda using the Serverless framework.
  • Identify, design, lead and/or contribute to anything and everything that needs to get done.
What You Need:
  • You have previous experience working on back-end jobs and services in Java
  • You have strong analytical, organizational, and prioritization skills.
  • You demonstrate the ability to bring code from whiteboard scribbles to running in production.
  • You are passionate about working in a dynamic and growing startup environment with a tight-knit, supportive engineering team that strives to make work interesting, challenging, and fun.
  • You have a constant desire for learning and self-improvement.
The fine print:
  • We're headquartered in Washington, D.C., and have offices in Austin and Chicago, as well. That said, our Engineers are welcome to sit anywhere in the lower 48 states!
At GetUpside, we believe that diversity drives innovation. Our differences are what make us stronger. We‘re passionate about building a workplace that represents a variety of backgrounds, skills, and perspectives and do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. Everyone is welcome here, come join us!
