Role Description

Engineers at Everwise get a lot of freedom to take ownership over projects. Depending on your personal goals and interests, this can include leading architectural efforts, being part of the product design process, leading people, and proposing new technical and non-technical solutions. We believe in letting people freely excel as opposed to telling them how to accomplish goals.

As a senior engineer, you're expected to drive complex features and projects. Our technology stack consists of a fresh, large React codebase, Rails backend, and a whole new content aggregation and recommendation service based on AWS Lambda, Fargate, Kinesis and ElasticSearch, using Node.js and serverless. We are open to adding more frameworks, tools and services to the mix if that makes sense for future development. We're looking at you, AWS Glue and Python.

This role is a full-stack role. We don't expect you to be good at everything, but here's a list of general competencies/experience we care about: - 5+ years of experience with large scale, complex or high traffic web applications - Experience with MVC web frameworks (Ruby/Python/Node.js/Scala/PHP etc.) - Experience with JavaScript (familiarity with React is a plus) - Expert experience with functional or object-oriented programming - Experience building scalable, distributed systems - Experience with SQL/NoSQL and database technologies - Understanding of unit and functional testing best practices - Command of DevOps, CI, and deployment engineering (Docker, Ansible, Nginx, and Unicorn are bonuses) - Cloud experience including redundancy, security and scalability strategies

Everwise is a learning & development company, so we try to teach each other new things frequently. Recently, we've been learning about functional programming, reducing stress, Erlang, serverless architectures, emotional intelligence, and Unix. We're also quite international, so expect random Dutch and Mandarin everywhere.
