~ We are not currently able to sponsor a VISA or relocate you to Amsterdam ~
We're looking for a Lead Engineer to join our young company. Specialized in backend (TypeScript, Firebase, MySQL), or fullstack. You'll be part of the founding team that's building the next professional network by focusing on meaningful introductions and real relationships.
It'll be the ride of a lifetime. All aboard!
For this position, we're open to backend specialists as well as fullstack engineers. We're building our backend in Node.js, Express and Typescript, and use Apollo Server to expose our Graphql API. Building, testing and deploying are fully automated so we can quickly and continuously develop and ship new features.
Our backend runs on Google Cloud Platform using MySQL, Redis and AppEngine, as well as other GCP backends like Firebase. Some familiarity with cloud infrastructure, for instance GCP or AWS, is necessary for you to hit the ground running. As we expand, we also plan to dive into graph search and real-time messaging.
We're starting small, but we've learned from our previous experience that building a social/professional network comes with unique scalability challenges. You'd get the opportunity to learn with us as we grow, or to apply your own experience in building highly scalable systems.
Our team is supported by the same investors who once supported Lyft, Skype, Slack, and TransferWise, former and current team members of Apple, Facebook, Google, and Shopify, and founders of companies such as Clearbit, Framer, Mesosphere, and WeTransfer.
