Job Description

About the Opportunity

You will join the Backend team as Product engineer -1 (PE-1). 
You will join the team as a "Product Engineer". We believe that in early-stage startups, there are no Engineering teams. There are only Product Teams. What it means is that not only are you responsible for "how does it work technically", but also "should we make this?", "How well should we build this?", "Is this what the user/customer needs?". We like to focus on outcomes vs output. 

You will work together with multiple stakeholders in cross-functional teams - Great products aren’t built with engineering silos. You will be responsible for owning features that you build end to end, starting from "how to solve it" to "is it creating the impact we thought it would?". From a technological perspective, you will be responsible for making sure your solution is appropriately performant and scalable and that it meets our functional and/or non-functional requirements (code quality, speed, flexibility to change etc.).

If you are interested, Kevin from our Engineering Team wrote a blog that offers a comprehensive window to the coding culture and ethics at SquadStack: SquadStack takes the Joel Test.

People who have joined us in the past have experienced tremendous growth. You will not only become a better software engineer, but we believe that you will have a much more well-rounded growth. People who join us are extremely smart and you will end up forging lifelong bonds here. :)

What you’ll be doing?

  1. Own end to end feature. As you gain experience you’ll own whole components end to end. 
  2. You’ll be responsible for taking each feature to its logical conclusion based on OKRs. Solve complex problems with simple elegant solutions.
  3. Brew clean, simple & high-quality code
  4. Take an active part in code reviews & design reviews
  5. Refactor existing code when things get a little too hairy
  6. Collaborate closely with product & peers
  7. Be an active agent towards strengthening the technology team & culture

Requirements
