About the role

An experienced backend engineer that moves fast with experience in building scalable systems.

Experience with building webhooks systems, asynchronous queues, AWS, or devops: a plus.

Key tech: Python (typed), FastAPI, SQLAlchemy, AWS, Postgres and Redis.

Why you should join Svix

Svix is SendGrid for webhooks. Webhooks are becoming increasingly important, though they are still a pain to build. Developers need to worry about deliverability, retries, monitoring, security and the developer experience for their users. All of which are different for webhooks compared to the rest of the stack. We turn all of that into a simple API call.

We are well funded and are backed by Y Combinator, a well known VC fund, and top silicon-valley angels.

Required: English proficiency, and we are only hiring in the American timezones.
