About the role

As a Full-Stack Engineer, you will work in a product team building new features and products across web and mobile. All of our engineers work across the full stack, so we take special care to make the experience as seamless and productive as possible. You will contribute to our process by developing best practices/conventions, tooling, and evaluating new libraries/technologies.

Some interesting & challenging problems we're currently tackling include:

  • predicting gig pricing based on local supply & demand
  • Using our graph of industry connections to enhance the experience for professionals and partners
  • Level up our developer productivity with server-rendered mobile apps (Hyperview) and common design systems across mobile and web

Qualifications:

  • 2-7 years of experience with web development in production, preferably with the tools in our stack: Python/Django for web apps and APIs, Celery for background jobs, MySQL, Redis, ElasticSearch, React Native for cross-platform mobile apps
  • A deep understanding of best practices in UX, and the differences between web and mobile
  • Track record of launching and iterating on apps or large software projects
  • Enthusiasm for evaluating new services and technologies, and shaping the culture and values of the team
  • Experience working with Graph Databases or Machine Learning is a plus
