Backend Developer

Mindworks Interactive

What you’ll do (responsibilities)

We’re looking for an individual contributor who enjoys working alongside other experienced engineers and designers to quickly build and iterate on backend/API/platform.

  • Use modern web tech and influence the stack. The frontend is React/Next.js the backend Node/Express/Nest.js and we use TypeScript across the full stack. As we build out our stack, you get to make critical choices and lay the foundations.
  • Self-direct your work and co-own the product. You’re a technical founder type and will have autonomy and responsibility. You’ll be involved in shaping the roadmap and will own Cron’s exploding backend needs.
  • Create a robust and scalable backend. Build PostgreSQL database models using Prisma, performant REST/GraphQL API with Redis cache, and offline support using IndexedDB, 3rd party integrations, product analytics, transactional email, and service monitoring. We currently deploy to Heroku DigitalOcean using Kubernetes/Rancher to keep DevOps running and will be looking for you to establish viable long-term cloud infrastructure and operations.
  • Build UI components. You’ll implement basic UI based on Figma mocks and our design system. You’ll collaborate with designers and frontend engineers on user-facing features powered by your backend code. We rapidly ship UI that has a native feel to it by polishing CSS, interaction states, and animations.
  • Solve interesting technical problems. Bring your full creativity to solve super-challenging technical problems: from complex backend architecture with 3rd party integrations, syncing app state, to real-time collaboration.

What we’re looking for (qualifications)

We don’t require any formal qualifications but value learning new skills — especially from one another. We are looking for someone that feels a sense of duty to the users of their work.

  • Highly productive while producing quality code. You enjoy pushing out features in a pragmatic and maintainable way. You know when to use duct tape and when to lay a foundation.
  • Curious and quick learning. We don’t expect you to have experience in every technology we use, but to learn and be productive quickly. Owning several repos and jumping into all of them doesn’t scare you.
  • Attention to detail while pragmatic. We strive for few slips in code, Git hygiene, and clear written communication — all while remaining low-ego and simply focusing on solutions.
  • Good heart. We don’t tolerate jerks and are generally just friendly people.

Our Benefits

We’ll treat you well. If there are any other benefits that are important to you, we’d like to hear.

  • Competitive salary and equity — multiple options based on your desire for ownership.
  • Hybrid culture — work remotely on a quota-basis, work where you’d like (We are GMT+8 time zones).
  • Hardware setup — big 4K display, and accessories.
  • Office parking — company-paid office parking.
  • Company trips — Quarterly/Yearly travel holidays
