Ontraport is making big strides in web development and business automation and we’re looking for thoughtful backend engineers with an eye for quality to join our team and help grow our platform while keeping it reliable, fast, and delightful.
Our ideal talented Backend Engineer is excited to learn and improve our technology platform. Projects range from new features as requested from our quickly growing customer base, to learning new technologies that will support clients, to improving the development workflow, tackling optimization challenges, and maintaining any existing code. Additionally, you’ll be mentoring more junior members of the team and optimizing the developer experience here at Ontraport. The ideal candidate will be capable of managing multiple projects simultaneously, expressing technical concerns when necessary, and implementing projects in an agile work environment. The result is building a product that appropriately balances the need for speed, scalability, and advancement.
At Ontraport, Backend Engineers push the boundaries of what’s possible in web applications. They are forward thinking with an eye for what is secure and effective. The primary responsibility of this role is simple: extend, scale and improve the core codebase of our application, specifically improving the backend experience for our clients. We’re looking for engineers who can think through issues. One of our back-end engineers, explains, “The important part, to me, is seeing the approach and process to a problem.”
We want engineers who think systematically, implement quickly, and consistently seek new knowledge. We are all passionate people who want to build things so you’ll be well supported by a world-class team organized on the Atlassian suite. A college degree in CS / CE is recommended but not required. We know learning doesn’t always happen in the classroom so be prepared to demonstrate what you know. You should also have four years of experience in WEB development using C++, Java, or PHP. We also look for four years of experience working in a LINUX environment and use of a modern CVS system (Mercurial, Git, Subversion). You’ll really stand out if you have built or utilized a highly available API.
