About the role

In this role, you will engineer and develop the backend that will serve 10s of millions of users. There is no legacy codebase which means you don't need to suffer from old poorly-written code, you need to write clean code from scratch.

Keeping the code modular and easy to read is one of the top priorities. At the same time, as a growing start-up, we are moving at a fast pace, so you need to be agile and focus on delivering software that does the job first and then improve it step by step. You will work directly with the founding team.

Deliver efficient code that does the job first and iteratively improve it later
Adhere to code guidelines and keep co-workers accountable for it as well
Ship code that is easy to read, maintain and debug

Conduct thoughtful code reviews for your team members
