Passage is seeking an experienced senior backend engineer to join our development team.

This is a Remote opportunity within Canada and the US.

What we’re looking for:

    • Production experience building distributed backend services
    • Production experience building highly available and performant backend features
    • Production experience with Go
    • Experience building and deploying a cloud native production backend service from scratch
    • Experience building external developer APIs
    • Demonstrated ability to concisely communicate complex technical problems and propose thorough iterative solutions
    • You value ownership and enjoy room to make your own decisions - we’re a startup and trust everyone’s best judgment to keep a fast pace

    • Experience implementing authentication protocols 

What you can expect:

    • Building new backend features in Go

    • Ownership of technical design and iterative delivery plans
    • Opportunities as a mentor and a mentee
    • A flexible roadmap dictated by customer feedback
Even if you don't tick all those boxes, we'd like to hear from you.

The most important part of this role is a strong desire to build clean, intuitive and performant backend code. This manifests in both the speed and security of our system and the ease of use for external developers building with Passage via our external APIs. If you thrive in a high paced, high expectations environment this will be a team you will love being a part of.
