Backend Engineer

Buenos Aires
At ASAPP, our mission is to solve complex and challenging problems by building transformative machine learning-powered products. We leverage artificial intelligence to address significant challenges that share three common characteristics: huge economic scale, systemic inefficiencies, and tremendous amounts of data. Our talented teams that drive our product innovation and development are located in New York City, San Francisco, Mountain View, and Buenos Aires.

You’ll have strong experience with either Go, Python, C++, Java, Node.js or Ruby. You’ll hopefully have experience with architecture and mentoring (though not totally necessary) -- and you’re ready to really put those skills to work. If you thrive in an environment of deep thinking, impactful research, and startup-paced execution, ASAPP is the ideal place for you.

    • Collaborate with other engineers and teams to develop new features, improvements, and fixes to handle our current and future scale
    • Be in touch with infrastructure challenges and bring solutions to scale
    • Collaborate with our recruitment process in technical interviews
    • Be part of the team’s on-call rotations

What you'll need

    • 5+ years experience building software with either  Python, Java, Go, or C++ (we use Go, but we'll teach you if you haven't used it)
    • Self-learner, independent, and have outstanding problem-solving skills
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
    • Totally comfortable with all aspects of backend engineering

What we'd like to see

    • BS or MS degree in Computer Science, or equivalent hands-on experience
    • Service Oriented Software Architectures

    • Scalable distributed applications experience
