Job Description

What You’ll Be Doing

  • We are looking for folks willing to jump into our most complex modules and solve our trickiest problems.
  • Promote best practices for working together to frequently deliver changes to production. Software development is a team sport, and we look to all our engineers to help one another achieve team goals, ensure uptime for our services, and give/receive feedback on how we can improve individually and collectively.
  • Tackling a wide range of technical systems and challenges. 
  • We’re growing fast as a product and business, so the type of work will be dynamic and diverse. 
  • Examples of things you may work on include implementing token-based authorization and access control, developing algorithms to optimize job matching to manufacturing partners, building graceful failover between two third-party shipping services, and optimizing database queries to scale our backend services.
