Who is Recruiting from Scratch:

Recruiting from Scratch is a premier talent firm that focuses on placing the best product managers, software, and hardware talent at innovative companies. Our team is 100% remote and we work with teams across the United States to help them hire. We work with companies funded by the best investors including Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Ventures, Tiger Global Management, A16Z, Accel, DFJ, and more.
If you are a fit, the team will reach out to you about this role or any others that may be a fit for our clients.
Our Client

Our client is revolutionizing how businesses leverage and enhance consumer data. Their platform (APIs, components, and rules engine) enables innovative companies and developers to seamlessly integrate credit and identity data into their apps, websites or workflows. Founded by serial entrepreneurs (with several exits), they’ve been nearly doubling revenue annually. They're looking for passionate and creative teammates to help us scale and supercharge the company. If you’re looking for autonomy, impact, and cutting-edge FinTech, they’d love to hear from you. Though fully remote, our client's team is the foundation of our success. They strive for diverse backgrounds, opinions, and approaches. They encourage respectful dissent, digging for the truth, so that they can deliver the best product for their clients and users. Continuous improvement, experimentation, and a clear mission stretch us individually and together.
They build RESTful API's using microservices built primarily in Go with some Node.js sprinkled throughout. They are looking for great engineers who know how to build scalable services to help consumers with their financial health and wellness via credit monitoring and identity protection. Interested? They'd love to hear from you! And they are always esp. happy to see any pointers you may have to your work on Git (GitHub, GitLab, etc.) or a personal Web site.

Responsibilities

  • Build RESTful web services in Go to be consumed by single page application(s).
  • Use best practices to help us optimize for developer productivity, reliability, and scalability.
  • Implement business logic using both code and MSSQL stored procedures.
  • Provide comprehensive unit and functional testing for all routes, endpoints, and features.
  • Mentor and coach existing development team on Go standards, tooling, and best practices.
  • Design & build caching mechanisms such as using Redis to provide the fastest experience possible to our customers/web visitors.
  • Participate in daily standup calls with the development team and project managers.
  • All services built will run in a containerized Linux environment in Docker and Kubernetes.

Job requirements

  • 5+ years of software development experience building SaaS products.
  • Experience building web and mobile backend services. (Ideally using Go but we will train you on Go if needed.)
  • Usage of Redis or similar technology for caching, message and job queues, etc.
  • Strong Javascript skills both client side and server side (NodeJS) to foster strong communication between varied project development teams.
  • Experience as a team lead and mentoring junior developers.
  • Experience with MS SQL database using stored procedures.
  • Experience writing automated tests for both functions and service endpoints.

Bonus

  • Experience with grpc via protobuf to accelerate communication between micro-services.
  • Frontend experience consuming RESTful web services using any framework (React, Angular, etc).
  • Understanding of credit bureaus, credit reports, and credit related products.
