We are a startup focussed on blockchain gaming. Our backend is built with Node.js/MongoDB and runs on Amazon cloud. This solution started as a prototype, but our user-base is growing fast and we are continually improving the stack to keep up with the increasing demands. We're looking for a leader to share the load in implementing development methodologies, assisting with architectural/tooling decisions, and building a solid foundation as the development team grows.

We predominantly communicate over Slack, making little use of email internally. We do standups via Slack. Github is their repo tool of choice and we track progress and requirements via Clickup.

#What You Will Do You would be working directly with the architect to gain an understanding of the current state of the system; to understand the pain points and help us build a plan forward and execute on it. You will inform critical decisions with consideration for software best practices, system design, and product roadmap Scrutinize and reason clearly about the technology and architecture choices we make in building platforms or products/services Serve as a role model for software design and scalable systems architecture by developing, sharing, and setting the bar for engineering quality
