Project Description

We’re building the future of sales communication. Our CRM integrates calling, empowering sales teams to close deals (faster). We’re a 100% globally-distributed team of ~55 high-performing, happy people who are dedicated to making a product customers love.

Our backend tech stack currently consists of Python Flask web apps with our TaskTiger scheduler handling many of the backend asynchronous task processing chores. Our data stores include MongoDB, Postgres, Elasticsearch, and Redis. The underlying infrastructure runs on AWS using a combination of managed services like RDS and ElasticCache and non-managed services running on EC2 instances. All of our compute runs through CI/CD pipelines that build Docker images, run automated tests and deploy to our Kubernetes clusters. Our backend primarily serves a well-documented public API that our front-end JavaScript app consumes.

We open-source – using dozens of open source projects with contributions to many of them, and released some of our own like ciso8601, LimitLion, SocketShark, TaskTiger, and more.

 

Ideal Candidates

We’re looking for a full-time (or part-time) Backend Software Engineer to join our engineering team. Someone who has a solid understanding of web technologies and wants to work on major user-facing features.

You should have senior-level experience (~5 years) building modern back-end systems, with at least 3 years of that experience using Python.

You have hands-on production experience working with MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, or similar data stores. You have significant experience designing, scaling, debugging, and optimizing systems to make them fast and reliable. You have experience participating in code reviews and providing overall code quality suggestions to help maintain the structure and quality of the codebase. You care about the craftsmanship of the code and systems you produce.

You’re comfortable working in a fast-paced environment with a small and talented team where you’re supported in your efforts to grow professionally. You are able to manage your time well, communicate effectively and collaborate in a fully distributed team.

You are located in an American or European time zone.
