We're hiring a senior backend engineer to work on Sup, our flagship app. You'll work directly with me and our lead iOS engineer, 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 Python & JavaScript (Node.js)

  • Experience with relational database systems (we use Postgres)

  • 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 how to get the best out of chatGPT to boost individual & team productivity

  • Have experience in Rust

  • Have experience building on GCP/AWS

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.
