Balancing cutting edge technology with stability and robustness entices you, and building something useful drives you.

Love to experiment and use data and customer feedback to drive decision making
As a Back-end/API Engineer, you'll be instrumental to delivering fast, robust, and easy-to-use APIs to our customers and internal stake-holders. You'll help decide what technologies we use to make backend performance and database communication blazing fast, and you'll help craft testing strategies to make sure uptime is 100% and bugs in production don't happen.
We're a passionate team of engineers who love challenges and want to make people’s lives better. We value openness, curiosity, continuous improvement, and great code. We believe that empowering everyone in a company to do what they think is best can lead to great things.
