Location: Palo Alto
Posted on: November 24, 2022

Job Description:

Today, we are powering over 20 billion API transactions a day and growing rapidly. You will wear different hats along the way, traversing our stack, working across our SDKs, API gateways, and applications using languages such as Java, Lua, and Javascript while shaping our entire system architecture.
If you are passionate about building scalable software services handling tens of billions of low latency requests per day, come join us!
As a Staff Software Engineer, you'll get to:

  • Help build and shape the next generation of Branch's APIs and backend systems.
  • Influence and drive best practices and technical excellence within your team and across the Branch organization.
  • Scope, define and lead design and implementation across multi-functional teams. You will often take vague product requirements and be responsible for breaking them down into smaller components displaying committed prioritization and coordination.
  • Work with the QA team to ensure the features you're shipping are of high quality, including rolling up your sleeves and writing both unit and integration tests.
  • Mentor other team members and contribute to team growth.
  • Learn something new every week, whether it's a new technology or a quirk of a language we otherwise didn't know. On occasion, you may find yourself picking up a new language or working with an unfamiliar platform. -

    You'll be a good fit if you have:

    • 7+ years of professional experience building scalable backend systems and API gateways.
    • Strong experience in Java, Node.js and comfortable diving into any language or technology.
    • Strong experience in building and maintaining API gateways.
    • Strong experience in working with modern cloud-based microservice architectures.
    • Experience with nginx, Go and Kotlin is a strong plus.
    • Experience in building and scaling node.js applications is a strong plus.
    • Experience with databases like Postgres, and familiarity with Redis and Kafka.
    • Experience building and debugging complex systems in a team environment.
    • Ability to write readable and testable code.
    • High attention to detail and a strong desire to continually improve.
