Software Engineer, Backend
Palo Alto, CA /
At Mashgin, we are developing the future of checkout experiences. We aim to reduce the friction between customer desires and their ability to be on their way.
In May 2022, Mashgin closed a Series B funding round at a $1.5B valuation. We are backed by some of Silicon Valley’s leading investors including Matrix Partners, NEA and Y Combinator. Our ecosystem is anchored by the only 3D computer vision and deep learning based checkout system in the world. We have 2,000+ locations world wide with customers across a wide spectrum of verticals including the NFL, MLB, Circle K, ampm, Aramark and Compass Group.
We value autonomy of ones work, a culture of respect for one another, and building products with empathy for our customers.
We’re looking for a backend developer to help us build the software that runs our kiosks and powers the extensive infrastructure behind them. You’ll work on code that interfaces with our hardware and visual components, making sure kiosks are reliable, and building scalable backend systems. This is not a specialized position -- we believe in end-to-end ownership of projects, so you’ll be involved throughout the entire product lifecycle, from idea generation, design, and prototyping to execution, and shipping while contributing to many different parts of the codebase in multiple languages.

- Continuously improving and maintaining code that’s already in production
- 8+ years relevant coding experience
- B.S. or higher in Computer Science (or equivalent work experience)
- Excellent knowledge of one or more of these languages: Python, Node.js, C++, Go, C#, Java
- Comfortable learning new languages, libraries, and frameworks when the solution calls for it
- Experience building production-ready code that’s used regularly by lots of people
- Experience in a fast-paced work environment, shipping quality code quickly and iterating
- Comfortable with deploying and managing cloud infrastructure
- Good knowledge of algorithms and data structures
- Strong proficiency with SQL and other database technologies
What We Offer
- An opportunity to work on a small, multidisciplinary team with the potential to break new ground in many different industries
