Design and build the APIs that power our sites.
We believe that the web is better when more people are making it. Universe is built to empower everyone to create their own home on the internet.
We're looking for someone to lead our backend engineering. Someone who builds reliable, fast, well tested APIs and services. Our APIs are critical to hundreds of thousands of websites and their creators. The APIs you work on support many of the features our creators love. Our APIs proxy data from Apple's CloudKit to render on the web. They register and maintain domains for each website. They store Site metadata, sitemaps, mailing lists, followers, updates and more. Our APIs validate our subscriptions and manage user permissions for Pro features.
As head of our backend you will architect new APIs in your language and environment of choice. You will deploy these APIs ready to scale to power millions of websites around the world. You will maintain our existing APIs written in Node.js running on Heroku while transitioning their functionality to your own purpose-built APIs running wherever you think is best. We're considering Swift with Vapor designed with microservices in mind, but we are open to evaluating the best technology for the job. We are looking to transition to a more robust, sustainable set of technologies. We are looking for someone who knows the perfect stack to invest in.
This is a full time position and 100% remote. Experience working remotely is definitely a bonus. We offer health benefits and generous vacation because everyone needs to recharge their batteries.
We're looking for someone sharp, internally-driven, and passionate about building powerful tools for everyone. If you're interested, shoot us a note to [email protected]
