      At Medium, words still matter. We are building a place to foster reading and writing on the internet—a place where today’s smartest writers, thinkers authorities, experts, and storytellers can share big, interesting ideas; a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers.

      The Platforms team
      The Platforms team is tasked with enabling our product engineers to quickly build a quality user experience. We do that by giving those teams tools and frameworks to build great user experiences.
      Much of the Platforms team's recent work has been around shepherding new technologies into Medium's stack: We have a web client written in modern React (with hooks, if you're curious) and TypeScript. We have enjoyed adopting GraphQL to add clarity to our API, manage changing client needs, and take advantage of third party tooling like Apollo Client. We have a modern design system & styling framework using CSS-in-JS & Storybook. And we are growing our fleet of Go services speaking gRPC, deployed on Kubernetes, and released with our own K8s operator.

      That's where you come in:
      We're looking for Staff- or Principal-leveled engineers who like to:
      Write software — That might be writing a new framework, making a design system component accessible, or writing a Slack integration that saves engineers time.
      Support fellow engineers — We listen to product engineering teams and collaborate with them. After all, they're our users, and they're the ones who ultimately help Medium's users read and write things that matter. When we empathetically understand what they need, it makes us better at our job.
      Advocate for & design solutions — We provide high-level technical design, strategy roadmap development, and technical architecture related to our web client.
      Follow & engage with the community — We want to assure that our architectures are consistent with industry including scalability, availability, maintainability, and flexibility.
      Understand technical debt — There are also some older and less glamorous technologies at Medium, too. Part of your responsibility will be enabling engineers to account for technical debt and make progress against it — all while building new systems and user features.

      WHO ARE YOU?
      • You have a deep understanding of Javascript, the DOM, CSS, and the ecosystem of tools around them.
      • You are an expert in at least one modern web application framework (React, Angular, Vue, etc.)
      • You have 5+ years of experience writing software.
      • You want to learn from and teach your peers.
      • You work autonomously, are energized by missions and goals more than a specific list of tasks.

      Nice, but not required:
      • You have 10+ years of experience.
      • You understand web accessibility and have shipped accessible products.
      • You have an understanding of React's internals.
      • You have experience on an infrastructural or platform team.
      What makes Medium special
      At Medium, we foster an inclusive, supportive, fun yet challenging team environment. We value having a team that is made up of a diverse set of backgrounds and respect the healthy expression of diverse opinions. We embrace experimentation and the examination of all kinds of ideas through reasoning and testing. Come join us as we continue to change the world of digital media.
      Medium is an equal opportunity employer. We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment. Please contact us to request accommodation.

      Job Summary

      Canonical and Ubuntu are at the heart of cloud computing, distributed computing, and scalable software systems. Whether public or private clouds, bare metal, or virtualized in a container, Ubuntu is there.

      In this role, you’ll be building and modeling software to drive distributed storage systems.  You’ll be engineering solutions to scale in production. You’ll work with our field and product teams to ensure we’re meeting the needs of customers who are looking to adopt cutting-edge technology to solve real-world business challenges.

      Applicants should be passionate about the future of the software-defined datacenter, distributed storage systems, and open source. Canonical is a globally-diverse team of engineers who share that passion, and you will need to work well in that context.  Engineers who thrive at Canonical are mindful of the dynamics of the open source ecosystem, and equally aware of the needs of large, innovative organizations.

      You will travel internationally 4 to 6 times per year for team engineering sprints, industry events, and strategic planning sessions, generally for 1 week at a time.  Recent locations include: Montreal, Malta, South Africa, Berlin, Ghent, Brussels, Vancouver, Salt Lake City, New York City, Budapest and Shanghai.

      Key responsibilities:
      • Develop high-quality, extensible, and reusable software (Python, C++).
      • Display strong technical leadership in feature definition, feature delivery, code review, and backlog management.
      • Interact with stakeholders, product owners, including field teams and customers, to define new features and to resolve issues.
      Required skills and experience:
      • Professional track record (2+ years) of software engineering using Python, C++, Golang or similar.
      • Advanced working knowledge of cloud computing and distributed storage systems.

      • Ability to effectively interact with a diverse group of people (both technical and non-technical).
      • Ability to be productive in a globally distributed team through self-discipline and self-motivation, delivering according to a schedule, and to motivate and mentor others to do the same.
      Desirable skills and experience:
      • Demonstrated track record of open source code contributions and community participation.
      • Experience with one or more Linux package distribution technologies (deb, snap, rpm).
      • Experience with Ceph, Swift, and/or DRBD as a developer or as an operator/administrator.
      • Experience with container technologies and platforms (LXC, LXD, Docker, Kubernetes, or similar).

    • Heap (North American timezones)
      2 months ago

      As a leverage engineer at Heap, you’ll be iterating on our core product to help drive activation, conversion, and retention/expansion. Heap is growing quickly, and to keep that pace we need to build applications and services that allow us to scale the effectiveness of our people. Your goal is to make changes to the product to increase revenue, improve our sales motion, and make it easier for the business to manage customers.

      You’ll be on a multidisciplinary team that owns the full stack from the interface to the analytical query engine. You’ll work closely with web engineers, product management and solutions engineers to decide how to build features.

      Our stack is built in JS and Postgres. Your work will be built with both, but will occasionally extend to frontend applications built in TypeScript and React. Familiarity with these tools is appreciated, but your creativity and intelligence are much more important to us than knowledge of our tools.

      What we're looking for
      We’d particularly like to get to know you if:
      • you communicate with clarity and precision. We care about this almost as much as your technical ability.
      • you're passionate, even if it's not about analytics. There should be something you know more about than anyone on our team.
      • you’ve written 10,000 lines of code that look embarrassing in retrospect. ... and you've written 10,000 lines of good code since then.
      • you like fruit, sunshine, and bad jokes. We aren't robots.
      Our office is in San Francisco, but we have engineers around the world. For the product engineering team, we are open to remote engineers in North American timezones. We'd love to hear from you!
      Heap has raised $95M in funding from NewView Capital, NEA, Y Combinator, Menlo Ventures, SVAngel, Sam Altman, Garry Tan, Alexis Ohanian, Harj Taggar, Ram Shriram, and others.
