Role Description

As a backend engineer at Render, you will build and manage the infrastructure and systems at the heart of Render: our secret sauce that keeps our users' applications running smoothly at all times. You will help Render abstract over multiple cloud providers and eventually our own data centers. You will build the backbone of the company and will be crucial to its success.

About Render

When deploying applications in production, developers are forced to pick between two extremes: expensive yet simplistic platforms like Heroku, or complicated, do-it-all-yourself services like AWS. By contrast, Render makes it easy to get up and running quickly but also allows applications to scale and increase in complexity over time, preventing a transition to DIY infrastructure.

Our goal is to completely free up developers and teams from managing infrastructure. This will ultimately improve all software and enable entirely new kinds of applications.

We're building products that abstract over complexity and minimize cognitive overhead for our users. This requires careful thought, high creativity and a deep understanding of application requirements in production. Our stack is React, GraphQL, Go, Kubernetes and PostgreSQL, but we don't require prior experience with any of them. We're looking for people with high integrity, low ego, and an insatiable drive to learn.

We serve over 125 million requests every week and have thousands of users who love the product. Our users include a leading democratic presidential campaign, YC startups, indie hackers and everyone in between. The company is well funded and backed by the same venture funds behind Airbnb, Snap, and Stripe, and the former CTOs of VMware and Dropbox. We also just won TechCrunch Disrupt Battlefield!

Company Culture

We value high integrity, low ego, an affinity for continuous learning, and the ability to figure things out quickly. We're always open to being wrong, and we love to improve our work through reasoned discussion and constant feedback. We trust and respect each other tremendously which makes doing all of this easy.
