For millions of teams working in dozens of industries, day-to-day business gets done on the phone. So why—despite the huge leaps we've taken in design and usability—does most business phone software still look, feel, and act like it was born in the 90s?

Our client is changing that. They’re the modern, sophisticated answer to the clunky, outdated phone systems that have been slowing down businesses for years. And after earning 20,000 happy customers and 52M in funding in just four years, it's safe to say they’re onto something big.

This unique company is looking for talented Engineers to join their core engineering team. You'll help develop and scale a world class application that's re-imagining the modern day business phone. Your responsibilities will include thinking through the customer journey and advocating for product enhancements and optimizations while working with technologies like: React.js, Node.js, & Typescript.

Things you’ll do

  • Create new backend services and APIs to support new features in the product
  • Build, document and maintain tests, features and infrastructure
  • Communicate and document architectural designs and requirements
  • Help interview and recruit more talented engineers

Tech stack you'll use

  • Our backend is built on Node using Typescript.
  • We use Kubernetes to orchestrate our infrastructure setup and deployment.
  • The overall architecture is event-driven micro-services with RabbitMQ at the center of it.
  • We use a variety of databases for different purposes: Postrges, Mongo, Elastic, and Redis.

There's no such thing as a 'perfect' candidate. We're looking for an optimist with grit and determination, who is excited to face the challenges of a growing startup. This company is the type of company where you can grow, and we encourage you to apply to us even if you don't 100% match the exact candidate description.
