As a Senior Engineer, you collaborate with your colleagues on the backend team to set a technical vision for our AI systems, as well as train and mentor engineers to develop their skills and technical understanding. You architect our AI web services in addition to improving existing features, reliability, flexibility, and scalability as usage increases.
We are looking for someone comfortable in several programming languages and excited about building new features in Go and Python. You should care about software design and have built systems that other people love to use and work with, and have experience building and scaling distributed, highly-available systems.
Our backend tech stack includes Python, Go, Postgres, Docker, Redis, REST, AWS, and Kubernetes (but don't worry if you haven't used some of these- we will teach you anything you don't know!).
