  • Identify opportunities to improve existing practices and uphold Alchemy's high technical quality bar
  • Write stable, high coverage test cases for features you ship
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack
  • Collaborate with other engineers, PMs, and designers to unlock Alchemy for mobile users

What We're Looking For:

  • 5+ years of experience of backend development, preferably with experience developing in other areas of the stack
  • Expertise writing production code in Java, Python, or Go
  • Experience designing, building, scaling and maintaining core software components (experience with API platforms a plus)
  • Experience publishing and distributing software packages
  • Experience in developing libraries and SDKs as opposed to UIs
