We are a small but mighty team, and we are looking for a Lead Backend Engineer to join us and make a real impact. We are a close-knit group that values our culture and our connection with our users and community. Our office vibe is relaxed and welcoming, and we take pride in coming to the office to keep the vibe going:)
