About the role

We are looking for a senior software engineer to join our platform team. You will design APIs, decide upon data stores, and write clean, maintainable, and tested code that makes up Hive’s backend services, data pipeline, and server infrastructure. You will offer and receive constructive code reviews, refactor debt-laden code when it makes sense, and earmark more complicated debt for future design discussions with the rest of the team. You will mentor junior engineers in best practices and suggest improvements anytime you see them across the organization. The engineering manager can lean on you, both for your technical acumen and pragmatism in execution.

 About you

We expect an attitude to learn to take initiative, and continuous development with the team as we take on new challenges and grow with the larger engineering organization and company. We think you should have the experience with the following:

  • Track record of designing, implementing and troubleshooting scalable, reliable and secure production quality systems
  • Technical knowledge in Scala or a JVM language, an interpreted language such as Python or Ruby and systems using Docker/Kubernetes on one of the major cloud providers
  • Ready to be on-call to support our 24/7 service SLAs

About the team

The Platform Team has a cross-functional approach. We take shared responsibility for both resource-level management and development of existing and new services in our service-oriented architecture. This includes service orchestration using Kubernetes, common logging and monitoring services, and data infrastructure such as Kafka, Redis and HBase. We design, implement and test services, APIs and Data Products. The common Platform serves our feature teams, the larger organization, and our customers. We work closely with the rest of engineering with guidelines and support to ensure that our platform is reliable, scalable, maintainable, and easy to use.
