The opportunity

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer with expertise in backend systems, infrastructure, and observability. You will play a key role in ensuring the stability, performance, and security of our platform, while continuously improving the developer experience and internal tooling. Our product teams will be able to deliver exceptional features and experiences for our customers thanks to the work you'll do alongside a globally distributed team.

The Team:

The Core Team is a cross-functional group of engineers responsible for maintaining and enhancing our engineering infrastructure, observability, and internal tools. Our mission is to enable product teams to build, test, and deploy high-quality software rapidly and reliably. Our team consists of 6 engineers reporting to a Sr. Engineering Director.

Our distributed team works asynchronously, with minimal weekly meetings (daily, planning, retrospective, etc.). We use Jira and Slack primarily for communication, and we use Node.js, TypeScript, AWS, Terraform, MongoDB, and Datadog for our technology stack.

To take our product to the next level, we need a senior engineer who is passionate about learning and sharing knowledge.

Within Three Months, You'll:

  • Gain a deep understanding of our infrastructure, observability, and tooling landscape
  • Contribute to the optimization and modernization of our platform and services
  • Work on projects related to infrastructure scalability, reliability
  • Improve internal tooling and developer experience

Within Six Months, You'll:

  • Drive the design and implementation of critical infrastructure and observability projects
  • Collaborate with product teams to identify and address architectural and performance bottlenecks
  • Actively contribute to a culture of continuous improvement
  • Join our on-call rotation

Preferred Skills and Background:

  • Strong experience with our core tech stack, which includes Node.js (JS, TS), AWS, Terraform, MongoDB, and Redis
  • Extensive knowledge of infrastructure management, observability, and distributed systems
  • Familiarity with Agile methodologies and the ability to facilitate some Agile ceremonies
  • Passion for personal and professional growth and eagerness to expand technical abilities
  • Track record of maintaining and supporting systems throughout their lifecycle
  • Excellent documentation and communication skills, as we're a distributed team in multiple time zones

It's Also Awesome (But 100% Not a Requirement!) For You To Have:

  • Experience with event-driven architectures
  • Knowledge of containerization and container orchestration technologies
  • Familiarity with distributed systems and microservices architectures
  • A data-driven and customer-centric mindset
  • The ability to refer other great engineers to work at Mixmax! :wink:
