About the Clari Align team
Collaboration is at the core of what the Align team builds and how we build it.
All of our team members work closely with each other, pairing to architect, design, and review implementations. We organize ourselves into Scrum teams composed of PMs, designers, engineers, and customer success advocates to foster deep collaboration across stakeholders. We move fast and ship often but we don’t break things. We endeavor to provide an environment where people enjoy and are passionate about what they do.
You are a senior backend software engineer interested in leading and building the next iteration of Align's real-time and multi-tenant features. You’ll help scale our data access layer across multiple databases and break out several key features into microservices. You’re an exceptional team player and communicator–you care about the end-user experience and maintainable code and you’re driven to find the solution, even if that means learning something new on the spot or spending time in front of the whiteboard.
This is a work-from-home opportunity based in the Vancouver area. Candidates must be based in the area and have appropriate Canadian work authorization. We are unable to provide work authorization sponsorship at this time.
