Role Description:

The role requires you to think critically and design with first principles. You should be comfortable with multiple moving parts, microservices architecture, de-coupled services, and multi-threaded programming. Given you are constructing the core foundation on which the whole system will be built -- you need to pay very close attention to detail, and have a forward-thinking outlook while maintaining scrappiness for the present needs. You are very comfortable learning new technologies, and systems. You thrive in an iterative but heavily test-driven development environment.


  • Design and build the core services, infrastructure, and system architecture

  • Experiment, prototype, measure, and make data-driven technology stack decisions

  • Implement web services, business-logic, APIs for the Penny.co-product interface

  • Building interactive consumer data from multiple systems and RESTfully abstract to the UI through a Node.js backend

  • Define code architecture decisions to support a high-performance and scalable product with a minimal footprint

  • Help improve engineering standards, tooling, and process

You are a good fit if you:

  • Have strong hands-on programming experience as a MEAN Stack Developer

  • Have experience building in REST APIs, Websockets, SQL/No-SQL Databases (MongoDB), message queues, distributed caches, data pipelines

  • In-depth knowledge of NodeJS, ExpressJS or NestJS

  • Experience with GCP deployments and pipelines management is preferred

  • Enjoy building distributed/scalable backend infrastructure with a microservices-first design

  • Are extremely comfortable crafting elegant multi-threaded programs, and services

  • Have a strong grasp of CS fundamentals, data structures, and algorithms

  • Hold yourself to a very high bar for production system quality

  • Love to demonstrate, and incrementally build 100% confidence in all the layers/components you develop.

  • Have a deep sense of appreciation for test-driven methodology

  • Are unafraid of the unknowns, can handle many moving parts

  • Love driving projects end-to-end to deliver business

  • Deeply care about resource frugality and performance

  • ALWAYS take a customer-first and team-first approach
