Software Engineer: Back-End

AWS Elasticsearch Spark Python Git Go
As a back-end engineer at RedCircle, you’ll be working on our high-scale podcast platform responsible for the delivery of petabytes of content each month. The system manages instant high-cardinality analytics, the construction of dynamic audio in real-time. complex business logic for payments, and much more. We write high-performance code in Go, operate and deploy our services in AWS (SQS, Dynamo, EC2, etc), and use technologies like ElasticSearch, Prometheus, and Spark to manage and monitor our podcast data and production environment.

We’re a small team, and are looking for engineers that want to take on responsibility, learn new techniques and technologies, and grow with the business. If you’re looking for challenging technical work with real positive impact, this is the job for you.

The team is led by the company’s Head of Engineering, and you’ll collaborate with other engineers, product managers, and designers.

A perfect candidate...

    • Has at least 1 year of experience out of school / bootcamp / internships on back end systems. A few is preferred.
    • Knows Go or is willing to learn. Python and/or JS knowledge is a plus.
    • Is comfortable / experienced with typical dev tools in a *nix environment (e.g. familiarity with the command line, git, etc).
    • Works collaboratively and loves designing solutions with the team.
    • Loves to learn, whether they’ve been in the industry for 1 year or 15.
    • Gets jazzed about owning projects from end-to-end. We’re a small team, so you’ll be responsible for as much as you want to take on.
