Job Description:

We're hiring a Senior Backend Engineer to work alongside our talented development team in NYC. You will work with this NYC team, as well as our tight-knit engineering team in Berlin, on our collection of APIs and microservices, written in PHP, Golang, and Python.

Our teams are cross-functional, so you'll be rubbing shoulders with frontend, product, UX, mobile, and QA, and as a senior member of the team you'll be taking responsibility for our entire platform, its architecture, and our suite of microservices.    As we evolve our backend systems towards Microservices and Event-sourced paradigms, our engineers have been increasingly using Go for its speed, concurrency, and low learning curve

  • 3+ years' experience using PHP and/or 1+ years using Golang 

  •  Understanding of various design patterns, SOLID principles, and DDD, as well as how and when to use these concepts in PHP and/or Go


  • Experience with relational (MySQL, Postgres) and non relational (MongoDB) databases

  • Testing mindset (unit, integration, & functional) - we're still forming the team in NYC so many of our QA engineers are an ocean away, which means it's up to you to ensure services' stability

  • Continuous integration / deployment expertise (we use Concourse CI)

  • Prior experience with distributed systems and microservices a big plus (protobuf / gRPC, opentracing)

  • DevOps expertise highly desirable (Docker and Kubernetes a huge plus!)

You’ll get…

  • Competitive Salary & 401k company match that vests immediately upon participation

  • Generous parental leave of 16 weeks & PTO policy 

  • $0 monthly premium and other flexible health plans 

  • 75% discount on your subscription to HelloFresh (as well as other product initiatives)
