Job requirements

As a Backend Engineer, you will build the core of products, services, and APIs in a spectacularly robust fashion.

You will:

  • Design, build and maintain APIs, services, and systems across Swif's engineering, content, and marketing teams
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack
  • Work with engineers across the company to build new features at large-scale
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes

You may be fit for this role if you:

  • Enjoy and have experience building backends for mobile applications
  • Think about systems and services and write high-quality code. We work mostly in Scala and Python. However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than - knowledge of a particular language or framework
  • Hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems
  • Take pride in working on projects to successful completion involving a wide variety of technologies and systems
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts

Whatโ€™s it like to work at Swif?

Swif was launched in 2022 and accelerated by the Y Combinator program. We were building a language learning product and decided to pivot the team to focus on solving the biggest issue we faced as a remote team.

We look at Swif as a constant work in progress. Weโ€™re here to support each other in our curiosity and creativity โ€“ which we pursue thoughtful discussion and knowledge-sharing among a diverse set of peers and colleagues.

We want to hear from you and share with you our vision. We will love to connect people passionate about remote work and productivity solutions as much as we do.
