Backend Developer


We’re looking for back end developers enthusiastic about creating resilient and responsive services with easy to use APIs. In this role you will have an opportunity to work on a visual marketing platform that’s transforming the travel industry. You will work, learn, and develop with an awesome and very agile team which includes a scrum master,  CTO/Co-Founder, and developers who are all invested in your success. The main tools you’ll work with are Go (we can help you learn that), RESTful services, and AWS.

What’s CrowdRiff?

Great visuals tell stories that touch hearts, open minds, and even influence what we buy, eat, and do. That’s why CrowdRiff exists: to connect brands and consumers alike with the captivating imagery that makes a real impact.

CrowdRiff’s visual marketing platform helps marketers source, organize and publish visuals at scale.

Over the past 12 months we have transformed our flagship platform, grown our client base by 5x, emerged as market leaders in the travel and tourism industry, and doubled our team size.

Our team is a quirky and diverse crew that has one thing in common: our love for great visuals. Every day, we work across desks, departments and even oceans to reach our goals, and delight our customers. Love doing your best work and learning cool stuff? You’re just our type.

The Tech

Currently, we’re developing medium sized RESTful services in Go that use Postgres and Elasticsearch for storage and Redis via AWS Elasticache as the cache layer. Our image processing pipeline uses AWS Kinesis as an event bus, AWS SQS as a managed queue as well as Google's Vision APIs to perform label detection on all photos and videos we ingest.

All projects can be built, tested and deployed with a single command. Continuous Integration is done using TravisCI and once all tests pass, projects are auto-deployed to Test and Prod environments using AWS CodeDeploy.
