Senior Backend Software Engineer- Protocols

Published date Posted on Indeed on Apr 30, 2022 (24 d ago)

THE CHALLENGE

Over the last decade, we have built a world-class SaaS platform for event organizers, enabling millions of events globally. Last year alone, our platform processed over 150 million tickets across over 3 million events organized by our creators. As our platform continues to grow, we need to continue investing in platform fundamentals in order to enable our engineering teams to be empowered and autonomous. Eventbrite is seeking a strong software engineer to join us in our mission to bring the world together through live experiences and help us take our platform to the next level.


THE TEAM

Our team is part of the Centralized Infrastructure pillar, providing value to the engineering organization by underpinning the foundation for our technology platform that enables our product to continually evolve. This team is dedicated to providing industry-standard based best practices for our platform through shared infrastructure, service migrations, and public APIs. We provide engineers throughout our organization the necessary tools to stay on the cutting edge of industry standards and remain agile and adaptable as new technologies become available. And we provide engineers outside of our organizations with APIs that enrich the creator experience.


THE ROLE

This role will leverage your deep understanding of cloud infrastructure, API design, and modern communication protocols. With your knowledge of the cloud, you will help build new microservices, migrate old monoliths, and manage shared tooling that makes all of that possible. And as an API expert, you will shape the future of the Developer API platform that helps fuel our creator experience.

The role can be located around our development hubs in San Francisco or Nashville, and we are open to considering remote work for the right person.


THE TECH STACK

Eventbrite is one of the world’s largest Django-powered sites by request volume. Python, Django, and MySQL are the primary off-the-shelf technologies in our stack. We are hosted on AWS and continue to expand how we leverage IaaS. Because this team interfaces with many other teams, there’s potential to work with a variety of other backend technologies in our stack, including Redis, Kafka, and ElasticSearch to name a few.

THE SKILL SET

  • You have 5+ years of experience and a proven track record of building software applications at scale in one or more mainstream programming languages as well as having developed web applications at scale using one or more mainstream web application frameworks
  • You have 3+ years working with relational databases, such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, MSSQL or non-relational databases like Elasticsearch and Redis
  • You have 3+ years of experience in AWS
  • You have 2+ years designing and developing APIs, ideally through an API Gateway platform such as AWS API Gateway
  • You have 2+ years of experience in designing, implementing, and supporting containerized environments
  • You have a meaningful understanding of modern microservices architecture, such as SAM
  • You have a willingness to work with a distributed team across several neighboring timezones
  • You develop code that is easily maintainable, thoroughly documented, and well tested
  • You have an understanding of the tradeoffs between building new technology and buying existing technology
  • You have a passion for learning and mentoring others

BONUS POINTS

  • Experience building and consuming RPC based APIs, ideally gRPC
  • Comfortable developing in a container environment like Docker
  • Familiarity with continuous integration tools like Jenkins or CircleCI
  • Experience with automated testing frameworks and methodologies
  • Experience with Terraform, Nomad, and other HashiCorp technologies
  • Has led teams in making architectural decisions

Work-life balance & flexibility is extremely important to us.

Our employees can choose what works best for them: work in one of our offices, be fully remote or the best of both worlds! We believe in a flexible working environment to allow Britelings to perform at their best ensuring a healthy work-life balance. We have recently implemented Britebreak Fridays: all Britelings turn off their computers and take the first Friday of every month off to focus on their wellbeing.
