Role Description

Mission: Your new obsession will be processing live sports data from third-party APIs and creating the services that run our game. The work you do will let our users celebrate the highs and commiserate the lows. It’s the heart of the GreenPark user experience. No big deal.

Languages: We use Go for all of our backend services. Experience with Go is not required but does help. 2 - 3 years experience with any statically typed language (Rust, Java, Scala, C++, etc) and a willingness to learn Go is fine.

Micro-services: We believe in micro-services with sports themed names. You’ll bring a keen sense of humor and ability to find creative new names for the services we require. With the support of our Director, Systems Engineering, you will also be designing and building them, creating clean well thought out APIs.

Containers: The MVP candidate will be comfortable working with tools like Docker and Kubernetes. You’ve worked with automated deployments like CircleCI. You have experience with cloud-based services, ideally Google Cloud.

Team: You will be reporting to our Director, Systems Engineering. You’ll work closely with the front-end developers to ensure the APIs are performing and delivering the data required and our game designers to implement game rules.

Interview: Contribute to interviews of new team members for both technical ability and culture fit.

Documentation: All team members are expected to maintain our architectural documents and good coding practices.   Hey, that’s game, set and match! We offer exciting times ahead, lots of spectacular twists and turns, hard work and the sweet success of achieving something most people wouldn’t think possible - if they could imagine it at all. If this sounds like it might be you, then apply now and let's chat.
