San Francisco, CA
The Eaze engineering team is looking for an experienced backend-focused engineer to join our team of passionate, mission-driven people. You’ll be working on critical parts of our technology platform, and will heavily contribute to creating a system and platform that will consistently deliver an awesome experience to our end-users.

We’re embarking on creating the next generation of core subsystems that power Eaze, utilizing a mix of Golang, Node.js and Python. If creating scalable and observable systems that support the delivery of a very large amount of cannabis sounds appealing to you, Eaze wants to hear from you.

Experience and skills you possess:

    • You have extensive hands-on experience building server-side applications, ideally within Golang, Node.js, or Python.
    • You’re able to speak to what makes a service scalable, secure, and performant, and can incorporate those thoughts into clear, readable code
    • You champion system observability and understand the value of application metrics and monitoring
    • You’re comfortable with scoping complex technical solutions and can understand how they contribute to the goals of the organization and business
    • You’re familiar with cloud-based infrastructure, and understand containerization to the degree that you can articulate how applications should behave within that infrastructure
    • You’re very familiar with data storage solutions and can speak to the trade-offs of utilizing different technologies to accomplish surfacing data to our various client applications

Things you might work on in your role:

    • Creating new backend application services to fulfil the business and product needs of our ever-evolving delivery system
    • Performing deep investigations while strategizing around complex elements of our system, such as routing algorithms, inventory management, or compliance requirements
    • Designing digestible APIs to interface with our many different services and clients
    • Consulting with other business units and teams within the company to ensure the work we’re doing in engineering is the right work to deliver an exceptional experience for our customers.
