Remote PostgreSQL Jobs

This Month

Remote Senior/Principal software engineer
Chiffer  
postgres javascript node react heroku aws Mar 13

The basics

  • The stack: Postgres, Node.js/Express.js, React. Currently running on Heroku, eventually AWS

  • The product: we help CFOs at subscription companies do their jobs more effectively

  • The way we work:

    • This is a remote job - work anywhere you want! Any timezone on earth (or outside earth, whatever)
    • We are an asynchronous team - we don't do scheduled meetings, and rely on each team member to pick their own schedule and to communicate clearly in writing and with recorded videos
    • We operate completely autonomously - no one will tell you what to do, we'll just tell you the goals and you will figure out how to work towards them with the rest of the team
  • The role you'll play on our team:

    • You'd be one of the first five engineers on the team, and the first very senior hire
    • You'll work on database design and implementation, complex data management problems, API design and implementation, some front-end React app code, building and iterating on our product, collaborating with designers and founders, and making a product that users will love
  • Like all start-ups we're scrappy, but not scrappy on compensation: Chiffer is committed to paying our awesome team members at market-rate, including benefits.

Our interview process

Our interview process is designed to focus on your skills as a software engineer, and your ability to communicate clearly. We're a fully asynchronous company, so that's how we will communicate in this interview process too 🙂

  1. We'll do a quick review of your background based on what you include in your application email
  2. If it's a fit, we'll ask you to work on a ~90 minute exercise while recording a loom (or other screen recording) video.
  3. If the video interview above goes well, we'll want to learn a bit more about how you communicate in writing - we may ask you to put together a technical design document. This is one of the biggest ways we communicate at Chiffer, so we want to see that you can work well with that!
  4. If we like what we see, we'll ask you some questions over email
  5. If everything seems like a fit, we'll ask you to work on one more ~90 minute exercise while recording a video
  6. And finally, hopefully we'll send you an offer. And hopefully you'll accept!

Requirements

  • You're an excellent senior engineer who has (senior: 5+ / principal: 10+) years of experience building web applications, designing databases and APIs, and working with others
  • You're a great communicator via writing, and via recorded videos
  • You're excited about working on a globally-distributed and diverse team, in an incredibly unique culture where autonomy, accountability, and ownership are equally as valued as your skillset.
  • That's it

Benefits

  • Unlimited vacation
  • Completely flexible work schedule - work literally anytime (and anywhere) you want!
  • Benefits appropriate to your location (health/dental/vision in the USA)
  • Company wide retreats multiple times per year
  • Like all start-ups we're scrappy, but not scrappy on compensation: Chiffer is committed to paying our awesome team members at market-rate, including benefits.

Full-Stack Python Engineer
Gorgias  
python postgres flask react-native kubernetes frontend May 22 2020
Gorgias helps e-commerce companies deliver excellent customer service at scale.

Our product creates a unified profile of customers by combining emails, live-chat, and social-media messages with e-commerce data such as purchase and delivery info.

Combining all this data in a single application makes customer service more efficient and just better. Another fortunate side-effect is that some requests are completely automated using ML. + =

We've been around since 2015, and we're currently serving over 2700+ e-commerce businesses, including Steve Madden, Rothys, Timbuk2, and Fjällräven.

Is getting your hands dirty, in a real-world application that touches the lives of millions, your thing? Then yeah, Gorgias is for you.

‍ What are some of the things we work on?

The frontend is written in React and React Native with the state managed by Redux. The backend code is mostly written in Python3 and runs using Flask (REST API) and Celery for all background work. The state is stored in PostgreSQL and RabbitMQ with Redis for ephemeral storage, and finally, everything runs on Kubernetes.

Given the above, we usually work on one of these levels by improving the existing code, or we create a new feature which more often than not has a component on both frontend, backend, and maybe a migration in the database.

In short, we do full-stack development. Either way, it always good to have a good understanding of the entire stack to be effective.

Who are we at work?

We have a strong preference for people who worked with high-traffic web applications for the past 3+ years.  We're essentially running a distributed system that has lots of moving parts and having a decent amount of experience with this type of system helps a lot!

Additionally, our apps have over 10k daily active users with sessions longer than 6h+/day and serve tens of millions end consumers per year, so we put great importance on quality, testing, and code-review of all our code. Our apps have big codebases, and we have to feel comfortable about navigating and progressively improving them. Sometimes, however, we gotta get dirty and figure out why the DB is slow or why some k8s pod is not running correctly, figure out how to successfully retry a failing API request, etc... The end goal is to hide a lot of complexity from the user and make their life easier.

If this is the type of environment you're looking for, then you should consider applying.

About You

    • 3+ years of experience developing production-grade backend web applications using Python or JS.
    • 3+ years of experience doing front-end development with JS.
    • You are passionate about learning and want to help us learn too.
    • You care about working on applications that are putting the customer needs first.
    • You are comfortable communicating with other technical teams and management to collect requirements, describe software product features, demo work in progress, and provide project updates.
    • You have the drive and focus to get challenging projects over the finish line, and you are comfortable advocating for what you need to do your best work.
    • You thrive in a fast-paced environment.


Nice to Have

    • Experience in designing API/microservices is a huge plus.
    • Experience with managing RDMS databases with 10Tb+ of data.


Company Benefits & Perks

    • Competitive salary, equity packages, and performance bonus packages
    • 4 weeks of vacation and parental leave
    • Latest MacBook Pro or equivalent
    • Retirement benefits
    • Unlimited snacks
    • Health coverage
