We live and breathe our values, which are to put our members first, work as one team and be data driven, as part of our team, they’ll matter to you too.
As part of this team, you would be working on early engineering phases to lay the groundwork for your team(s). You will lead backend engineers across multiple agile teams splitting your time between design, coding, mentoring and managing other team members. You will be the person people turn to seeking advice and solutions to difficult problems.
Joining one or more multidisciplinary agile teams, you will be required to work closely with product owners, architects, mobile engineers, and other business members to translate requirements into well-engineered solutions.
You’ll be a key contributor to our backend community of practices and your input on how to improve processes and maintain a high quality across the backend will be very welcomed. This role offers an exceptional opportunity to make a real difference with responsibilities across many engineering practices in a rapidly expanding company!
About the Tech
On the backend we see Java 8 as legacy and use Java 11+ for our micro-services. We provide RESTful APIs to our colleagues in the frontend, but also use gRPC for internal service-to-service communications. Spring Boot is our work horse, but we are open to new experiments. We are cloud-native and run everything on AWS. You’ll see containers (Docker), queues (SNS+SQS) and events everywhere. The nature of our business naturally fits with relational databases, but we have also found some use cases for NoSQL.
Our frontends have done an incredible job at consuming our APIs and providing the best UX to our members. They are fully native Android and iOS apps or Angular 2+ web apps. DevOps provides vital infrastructure and operations support and our architects guide us with the long term vision.
Let’s not beat around the bush. We’re an international scale up, we’re busy! If fast paced environments, cross team exposure, inquisitive freedom and the ability to have a real impact on a rapidly growing scale up appeals to you, then you already have the mind of a Tidean. If you have that along with the following experience, we’d love to hear from you.We are cloud-native and run everything on AWS.
