Role Description

We want you!

We're looking for experienced, super ambitious, product-minded folks to join our rapidly growing engineering team.

We are remote-first

Our main office is located in Richmond, VA, but the majority of our engineers are distributed.

Our tech + how we work

Our core backend is built with Go, but we are constantly exploring tech that best fits the needs of our customers and engineers.

We believe in using the best tools for the job, and value engineering expertise over language prowess.

We predominantly communicate over Slack, making little use of email internally. We do daily standups each morning via Google Hangouts. Github is our repo tool of choice and we track progress and requirements via Jira.

You should apply if...

You're passionate about building beautifully crafted software and creating awesome developer experiences.

You want to build a product you would use yourself, and bring your unique insight and perspective to the table as an engineer in shaping our overarching product offering.

You like solving big problems. Our greatest challenges are on the horizon, and we'll need experienced, intelligent, hard-working and creative minds to solve foundational infrastructure challenges to further establish Hatch as the leading B2C messaging platform.

You value collaboration, autonomy, moving fast and getting lots done. We have no time or interest for bureaucracy and micromanagement — we're moving fast and you'll be required to take responsibility for delivering end to end to product.

You want to make a huge impact, and share in the success of a company you've helped build.

You may be a fit for this role if you

  • Have a strong technical background, including 3+ years of experience building impactful products or systems
  • Have at least 1 year of Go experience
  • Have incredible communication skills and are a joy to work with
  • Enjoy doing anything it takes to solve problems and see projects through to completion
  • Take pride in designing, building, and maintaining APIs, services, and systems at scale
  • Find improving engineering standards, tooling, and processes rewarding
  • Embrace learning and encouraging best practices in engineering, security and design
  • Hold yourself to a high level of accountability
  • Can quickly pick up new concepts and help implement them
  • Enjoy doing whatever it takes to solve problems and delight users
  • Enjoy learning, growing and contributing as a productive team member

What you will do

  • Thrive in a collaborative environment developing and executing against immediate and long term roadmaps and making effective tradeoffs considering business priorities, but always with the user experience in mind
  • Write high quality, performant code that sees tons of exposure and receives user feedback in a growing, fast-pace, startup environment
  • Work closely with other team members to develop new features, simplify system design, and contribute to architecture-related conversations
  • Scrutinize and reason clearly about the technology and architecture choices we make in building platforms or products/services at Hatch
  • Assist with test automation implementation and testing scaffolding in CI/CD pipeline to hold yourself and other engineers accountable to a high level of quality in test coverage
