Active Roles
Why join us?
  • Rapidly growing on the business side - multiple X growth in revenue year over year and profitable. Paced growth on the org side - hiring as we need it and where we need it so that we can maintain a well balanced team and culture.

  • Our focus is on solving problems for our very active customer base and to do so we are taking a product oriented engineering approach. If you are a product minded engineer interested in being involved in all stages of solving technical product problems it will be the right fit for you.

  • Our founder and exec team have multiple businesses behind them in the telecommunications, video, fitness and e-commerce spaces. We know what it takes to have success and want to find folks interested in sharing in success and helping achieve it.

  • We are early in the growth stage as an organization so there is a lot of opportunity to take on responsibility and help shape the technical roadmap as we grow and improve our internal systems and the product itself.

Engineering team and processes

Our team is in a growth stage with team members in roles oriented towards where they are strongest in the stack right now. * Backend * Frontend * Mobile * QA * Product Engineering (direct customer supporting engineering)

We're a small team still so there is opportunity to have real responsibility when joining.

We are an entirely remote team with folks spread out all across North America and we are looking for folks that are comfortable with and prefer remote work. We generally work a central timezone oriented day.

We run a loose agile process based on a 2 week sprint, with sprint grooming (evaluation of tasks) and sprint planning (estimation and bring tasks into sprints) driving the short term process. There is a daily standup meeting to sync with the team and discuss any roadblocks or issues each morning.

We run a quarterly planning process to set our roadmap - typically a full day planning session where we discuss quarterly and yearly goals, possible upcoming projects, the merits of projects and then give them a rough ordered based on the evaluation.

We use slack heavily for most types of communication within the team and across teams in the company along with tools like zoom. We aren't a meeting heavy company the majority of meetings are for team planning or product demo/discussion.

Technical Challenges

We're rapidly growing which brings with it lots of changes to the way we need solve core platform problems.

  • Scaling our system to support major growth in usage - things like queue handling, data lookup performance and caching
  • Fast paced feature development - implementing and rolling out major new features using feature flagging so that we can beta test and iterate on changes faster *
Projects you might work on
  • Queue Overhaul:

    One great example is queue management and implementation. We use queues really heavily to process work and communicate with outside systems. We have changes we want to make to improve our processing capabilities to allow for prioritization, rate limit handling and other expansions to our system.

  • Building a mobile application pipeline:

    Currently we support mobile apps for a large number of our customers. As part of that of that offering we create mobile apps using a partially automated process for both new app generation and app updates and modifications.

    As part of this project we need to:

    • Create a new customer facing interface for adding and changing application assets.

    • Automate the process of generating and validating new application projects

    • Improve the build process and allow for automated submission and release of new versions
