About the Job
You will work in our backend server team to build, maintain, optimize and scale ALL aspects of our backend systems. This is a key role in helping us to handle the incredible growth we continue to see. You will help solve the complex problems that come out of managing a high-volume site, both in terms of concurrent usage and huge dataset. You will learn new technologies as necessary, and apply them these problems. In addition to scaling our systems, you will work closely with our product managers and web developers to support all of our end-user features across the 10+ platforms we are deployed on. Your primary customer in this role will be other developers, and you will build data access components for them to easily consume in building useful, fun, usable features. You will write elegant, maintainable, robust code every day.
