Expa is hiring a

Senior Software Engineer

San Francisco, United States

Spot connects people to the best places on the planet, all according to the friends and experts they trust. Whether you're looking for a great cup of coffee around the corner or an adventure across the world, Spot gets you there. 

We are looking for exceptional full stack and backend engineers to help lead our engineering efforts.

You might help design build new user-facing features & functionality, develop the API that powers the Spot clients, dig into the data platform as we index the real world, or help design and implement scalable, performant solutions that can power services for millions of users. Our current stack includes Javascript, Postgres, AWS, and Elasticsearch, but we’re always looking for the best tools for the job.

We optimize for practicality, pragmatism, and niceness. If you're wedded to one language or framework, this probably isn't the team for you. 

You are unbelievably smart, kind, curious, empathetic, open-minded, and driven. You have engineering breadth and depth, and experience working on cross-functional, collaborative teams. If you love to build beautiful interfaces, elegant iOS apps, or robust, performant, scalable restful APIs — and want to make the world better for everyone — get in touch!

About You

  • Working knowledge of and experience with modern programming languages and Javascript, Postgres, and AWS
  • Experience with and interest in GIS are a plus
  • Passion for solving complex challenges and making the world a better place
  • Smart, nice, open, collaborative, and empathetic

This is a full time position at an early stage startup in San Francisco, CA, with competitive cash and equity compensation, great perks, smart and nice people, and a killer view of the bridge and bay from the office. We love rapid iteration and face-to-face collaboration, and so we aren't ready for remote teammates.
