Team Product Engineering

We are looking for a full-time Senior Backend Engineer to join team Aether, which is in charge of auth and user data at Smartly. Our team solves broad and complex problems that are not ad platform-specific, and have a high impact across the whole user base. Most of our services are built using TypeScript, Node.js, Koa, Postgres, and RabbitMQ.

Expect to be involved in solving these problems:

  • User identity and access management, including role-based access control (RBAC).
  • Authentication and login methods, including single sign-on (SSO).
  • Creating an enjoyable user management experience for our customers.
  • Tools to modularize the product to fit the needs of different customers.
  • Breaking our monolith into maintainable microservices.

For a sneak peek into our ways of working, read How Engineers work at Smartly.io!

As a Senior Backend Engineer you will... 

  • Write maintainable, robust, and well-tested code.
  • Develop and maintain delightful internal APIs to help other teams.
  • Improve the state of our codebase by taking part in code reviews.
  • Share in the efforts to improve our development practices constantly.
  • Help communicate our offerings to other teams by keeping documentation up-to-date.
  • Collaborate with diverse stakeholders, including product management, infrastructure, and our support function.

What we are looking for... 

  • Professional experience with TypeScript and Node.js.
  • Experience with relational databases (e.g. Postgres).
  • Motivation for solving customers’ problems and delivering value at a fast pace.
  • Ability to understand or willingness to learn enough PHP to help deprecate our legacy monolith.
  • Bonus points for experience with application monitoring, Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, and React.

What we offer you...

  • You can and will have a significant impact on both what we build and how we build things.
  • Our projects are a part of the DNA of our product, which means that every other team will have some skin in the game. Your work will impact our customers and our business.
  • You will own your work, and we will support you in that ownership.
  • Competitive salary and benefits.

What to expect from our recruitment process...

  1. First meeting: getting to know each other.
  2. Meeting the Engineering Manager: learn more about your future team.
  3. Technical interviews: you take part in an interactive coding interview with one of our developers, followed by a discussion around Systems Design and Architecture
  4. Explore and Expand: we'll dig deeper into your main interests and core skills.
