Senior Backend Developer (Golang)

Company: Tech Talent Link, Inc
Location: Portland
Posted on: March 19, 2023

Job Description:

***We are unable to work with 3rd-party or corp-to-corp candidates for this position***

Job Overview:

Our client will be hiring a Senior Backend Developer with experience designing and building distributed systems. Programming experience with Golang is ideal. Experience working in a start-up or fast-paced company. In this role, you'll be working with 2 other Software Engineers.

Strong experience running production systems (Postgres with Kubernetes)

100% REMOTE.

Excited about working in the IoT space?

We build creative, scalable, and maintainable solutions to address real pain points for companies that use IoT devices as an integral part of their business. Whether those devices are used to monitor room occupancy and temperature, track inventory, or provide alerting for physical states, they need to be managed, updated, and monitored in a secure and robust way. Our products meet this need.

The Tech

We're building a distributed system in Go (Golang) to manage devices on the edge, so our systems must function effectively in the absence of a fat, stable pipe between the server and the client. The system extends from the backend in the cloud down to actual management devices, so we've got software, firmware, and hardware engineers all working in tandem. No experience with the other areas of engineering required for this software position; what IS required is that your interest is piqued to learn more about them!

Concerned about "Checking all the Boxes?

What's most important to us is finding authentic, interested and motivated people who are excited about the IoT space, not just candidates who check off all the boxes.

What Makes you Successful in this Role

Curiosity, empathy, ownership, and a fondness for collaboration.

If you're eager to both learn from and teach fellow engineers and non-engineers alike, build excellent products for customers, and dive headfirst into unfamiliar technology, approaches, and challenges, you're halfway there! The team shares on call responsibilities one week per month.
