Members of our fast-growing, distributed engineering team (Seattle, Miami, Austin, etc) hail from companies like Microsoft, Tesla, IBM, and small, fast-paced startups alike. We value autonomy, inclusivity, eagerness to learn, and a desire to improve upon the status quo.

This is a 100% remote role.

What you'll be doing:
  • You'll work closely with the Product & BA teams to determine which platform services and libraries we’ll use to build amazing products.
  • You’ll help us deliver delightful user experiences by architecting and implementing resilient, highly available systems from the ground up
  • As an early team member, you'll get a chance to build our engineering culture and design the architecture for our backend machinery.
  • GovCon market intelligence is a widely uncharted problem. You'll help us explore the solution space.
About you:
  • Have a good sense of engineering fundamentals, and are passionate about building high quality software.
  • Experienced with web backends, databases, ETL pipelines and/or developer tools. We want you to challenge yourself and your colleagues to uphold high engineering standards and improve code quality, infrastructure stability, and streamline processes.
  • Take ownership of your work and are comfortable making code changes across the stack when needed.
  • You can collaborate with non-engineering stakeholders to unblock yourself and make sure you're building the right thing.
  • Possess a growth mindset and a passion for problem-solving through development of creative, innovative solutions.
  • Possess strong interpersonal skills and have experience collaborating with individuals across various professional backgrounds and cultures.
  • Can thoughtfully articulate and receive feedback from colleagues.
The stack you'll be working on:
  • Frontend: Typescript, React, Jest, GraphQL.
  • Backend: Go, PythonAbo PostgreSQL, AWS
  • We strive to adopt tools that simplify productivity and are delightful to use. We rely on our team to help us identify and implement those tools
Basic requirements:
  • At least 3 years of experience with Golang.
  • At least 3 years of experience with Python (experience with Flask is a plus.)
  • Previous experience with React.js and TypeScript is a plus.
  • Have expertise in implementing and designing micro services (using tools and technologies for messaging, RPC, containerization, etc.)
  • Understanding of containerization technologies (Docker, RKT, Kubernetes, etc.)
  • Basic experience with CI/CD systems.
  • Basic understanding of how to work with AWS
