Description

We're hiring a senior backend engineer to work on Sup, our flagship app. You'll work directly with me and our iOS engineers, collaborating to build infrastructure, scalable systems, and new APIs for our app. We're a very tight-knit, product-focused team, and you'll have a high degree of autonomy and responsibility in shipping key parts of our app.

You'd be a great fit if you have:

  • 4+ years of experience building production-grade, scalable backend systems

  • Familiarity with load balancing techniques and caching to handle large amounts of traffic

  • Advanced proficiency in TypeScript

  • Experience with relational database systems (we use Postgres on Railway)

  • Have a firm grasp of CI/CD and are familiar with GitHub Actions

  • An obsession with nailing the details, iterating & learning rapidly, and working hard

Bonus points if you:

  • Love experimenting with new consumer apps, and are excited about building advanced social & information networks

  • Have designed or built ML-based features for consumer apps, such as recommender systems

  • Know the ins & outs of Docker, Kubernetes, GCP, and GKE

  • Have experience building with WebSockets & handling real-time data

  • Love Bun

If this sounds like you, send us a message with a short blurb about why you'd be a great addition to our team, along with a link to your GitHub or portfolio.
