As a Backend Engineer you should be curious about how to build large-scale, business-critical systems with modern technologies and your responsibilities will include research, design, and implement features and services that can scale in an efficient and reliable manner.
Mentimeter is a high transaction system built in React, Redux, Ruby, Node.JS with a PostgreSQL database for persistence, Redis for caching and queuing, AWS Redshift for Business Intelligence, CloudFront as a CDN (with Lambda@Edge), and WebSockets to enable a fast and interactive polling experience. Hosting is done on Heroku and AWS with Continuous Integration using Github and Circle CI. We also utilize Next.JS for our static content sites to be able to deliver a blazing fast experience for our end users.
We are in an exciting phase where the platform must evolve in order to ensure continued performance, scalability, security and maintainability of the platform and our business. You will be part of taking the decision on what architecture and technologies are best suited for our future challenges. We are, for example, looking to build our own WebSocket infrastructure for better control and reliability (perhaps based on Go) and opening up a Public API enabling the possibility of an ecosystem of new innovations based on Mentimeter technology.
We work in small, independent, self-organizing teams. The teams’ product manager and engineering lead work together to organize and plan the teams’ backlog using agile processes focusing on continuously delivering great features to our users.
