Help! Our main product,, is straining the simple NodeJS server we deployed back when we were a carefree, young company testing out a radical new idea. We need a brave, intrepid, challenge-loving backend engineer to write a rock-solid production grade server for, create clean APIs for service-to-service communication, help build a robust persistence layer with a great cache, and provide a programmatic liaison to our core mocking engine.

Our company culture begins with the retro. Every week, we reflect upon what went well, what didn't, and what we'd like to do next week. While the role we are recruiting for is backend developer, we are a transdisciplinary team that enjoys using our weekly work to grow and learn new things. It is important that any new team member is comfortable with this environment. It requires a lot of autonomy and accountability but provides an unparalleled setting for personal development.

The ideal skills we would like someone to have coming into the role are:

  • Familiarity with a variety of backend tools. Could be Node.js, Elixir+Phoenix, Go, Java, Python... we're not picky!
  • Comfort with SQL, authoring schemas, and maintaining migrations.
  • Knowledge of state-of-the art microservice patterns (serverless architectures, containerization, etc.) and the DevOps tools (Serverless, Kubernetes, etc.) to make them happen.
  • Comfort in authentication and authorization practices.
  • Desire to design and be responsible for an end-to-end microservice system, with lots of help from your awesome team!

It does this by creating custom sandbox environments that allow them to prototype and test, in real time, their most mission-critical integrations. People like to work at Meeshkan because the challenges and possibilities for growth are endless.  Every week, the entire team collaboratively decides what parts of the mission are most critical and valuable, and we focus on the avenues about which we are most passionate.For example, a month for any given team member can move between building a machine learning pipeline to honing analytics metrics to public speaking to website design.To make this environment possible, the team is consensual and relaxed about hours, the scope of projects and the direction of the company.  We are very retrospective focused, always identifying what went well and what needs improvement so that our weeks can be as enriching and fulfilling as possible.We are seeking like-minded individuals that feel comfortable taking ownership over the growth and development of a deep tech product addressing the needs of tens of thousands of developers the world over.
