Job role:

As a Backend Engineer, you will primarily work on Golang, Elixir, Node.js, and PostgreSQL along with the backend team at Gamezop. 

What you can expect to learn:

Everyone at Gamezop works across our products. Over time, your work will expose you to the following industries / tools / skillsets:

  • Programmatic advertising & ad serving
  • Real-money gaming
  • Scaling for millions of users (APIs as well as databases)
  • Google Ad Manager and AdSense APIs
  • Salesforce APIs

Additionally, because we are a small team, we are very proud that people get ownership of services within the first week of joining. We have fairly decent scale and the path-to-production is short :)

We expect the following from you:

  • Good written and spoken English is a must
  • Drive to explore new tech, and humility to learn from everyone around you
  • Ability to work in small teams with rapid development cycles (we want to avoid spending time on teaching Slack / Calendar / Email hygiene)
  • Familiarity with the scrum workflow system
  • Prior experience with handling scale
  • Good code hygiene (organized commits, PRs and ability to follow internal development guidelines)
  • Should have worked with Golang, Node.js in production for at least 1 year
  • Comfort with messaging queues (RabbitMQ / Kafka)
  • Should be able to write basic CI/CD pipelines and manage your servers (familiarity with Docker and Kubernetes is important)
  • Ability to monitor your services using either of: New Relic / Data Dog / Grafana Prometheus
  • Understanding of basic AWS services: EC2, Lambda, S3, Cloudfront

This bit is not mandatory at all, but experience with any of the following is a big plus:

  • Elixir (or any other functional programming experience)
  • Elastic Stack
  • Database sharding
  • Clickhouse
  • Web crawling at scale
  • Data engineering for data warehouse creation
