Senior Back-End Engineer

addy Technology Corp.Vancouver, BCa month ago

We are a well-capitalized startup seeking an extremely talented Back End Engineer to help make every human a home owner. You must have experience building and designing large and complex, yet maintainable SaaS. We are a SaaS-enabled marketplace that engages every human through compelling and thoughtful design. You must be able to work closely with your team to complete sprints and maintain a velocity most competent people think not possible.

We expect intense, talented and interesting teammates who care about achieving a triple bottom line of societal, environmental and economic return.

Exceptional communication and comfort with debate are essential.

We have no sacred cows in our tech stack and are instead driven toward being curious about how we can always learn and improve. Our current backend is Ruby on Rails and frontend is Vue.js – we are open to consideration of other technologies and the right candidate will help us form that technology hypothesis for validation.
