Fully Remote

Team:

Engineering

What you’ll be dong at Krepling

As a Senior Backend Engineer, you’ll be:

    • Writing scalable services, as well as new APIs and rewriting old ones, in Next.js, Express.js, Mongo, GraphQL, Apollo and AWS Lambda

    • Collaborating with software engineers, product managers, designers, and QA analysts in an autonomous, supportive team environment

    • Solving problems in a highly technical platform that empowers hundreds of thousands of people

    • Refactoring existing components and code paths into clearer, standardized, documented, and testable API-driven boundaries

    • Uniting our front and back end services

    • Building and maintaining unit and integration tests (Jest and Cypress)

    • Improving our planning, development, and deployment processes to help you and your fellow team members

    That being said, these role responsibilities are just the start! At Krepling, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

    What we’re looking for

          • An individual with 5+ years of experience engineering scalable multi-tenant systems 

          • A deep understanding of data design and modeling

          • Someone familiar with one or more Javascript type systems (we use Flow here)

          • Someone who loves studying design patterns — and knows exactly how and when to apply them

          • Someone comfortable working in an agile, safe-to-fail environment

            This is an ideal opportunity for an experienced Engineer looking to make their next step in their career – with opportunities for progression into a lead position in time.

            However, even if you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.
