We’re looking for an experienced backend engineer who’s interested in performance, scalability, reliability, distributed systems, browser technologies and infrastructure as code.
We’re fetching >7GB/s of product photos and videos from our customers, combining them in endless variations to produce high quality image and video ads AND serving them in real time to our partners. Join Team Render and start learning!
Our technology stack:
As a team we look after the backends for image templates, video templates, asset fetching and error aggregation. We work closely with our sister team who develop the template editor frontend. As a team we are part backend developers and part DevOps/SRE … but we don’t do on-call!
Smartly.io’s business is growing thanks to new and upcoming integrations to many platform partners (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, TikTok, etc). Our templating services are at the core of this growth - we help large organizations automate putting their images and videos where they want, looking the way they want and in the right formats. Fetching the assets (images, videos, fonts) that our customers want to use is one of our most interesting challenges as we fetch and cache >35M per day from customers who are not all ready to handle the traffic. Performance means so many things to us, we are very data driven when finding and targeting bottlenecks. We focus on removing the bottlenecks that actually matter whether they are in application, third party software, middleware or network.
We work as a team to agree priorities, break work into achievable tasks and stories, and we limit work in progress to ensure as much pair work as possible. As we work across a wide range of technologies (browser internals, Typescript, distributed systems, kubernetes) you’ll have exposure to a wide variety of tasks. In team Render you’ll have freedom to work on tasks that interest you to maximize your learning (a key Smartly.io value).
