Lead Backend Engineer

  • Overview

    We're looking for a lead backend engineer, who will help us to start the team for our new client, Outdoorsy. Outdoorsy is one of the most trusted RV rental and outdoor experience marketplace on the planet that has grown from a lofty white-board idea in 2015, to over $525M in GMV and offices worldwide in the US, Canada, Australia, Europe, and the UK.

    The platform that you will develop handles availability scheduling, payment processing, communication, insurance, GPS tracking, and roadside assistance all built-in. Outdoorsy's rapidly growing user base has taken them from the United States to Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The engineering team that we're building is going to become a small mighty group of self-starting developers who are motivated by making an impact on the lives of Outdoorsy's users, both financially for owners or experientially for renters.

    Who you are:

    A hands-on engineer who enjoys back end development that has built and refactored code bases to follow best practices.

Security, stability, and performance are always top of mind when building new functionality or reviewing pull requests from the team.

    • Experience working in startup fast-paced environments
    • Expert with modern web architectures and patterns at scale (Twelve-Factor, SOLID, ACID, etc)
    • Experience with Go, Java, Scala, or Python. The majority of our code is written in Go and Java, but we strategically incline to Go and ready to train skilled engineers of different stacks to work with Go moving forward;
    • Experience with Backend technologies: Golang or Scala or Python or similar
    • Experience with Heroku or GCP or AWS
    • Extensive experience with Postgres or MySql or any relational database
    • Extensive experience with Queues and pub/sub
