Backend Engineer

Boston, Massachusetts
Full Time
Robin was started in 2014 as a spinoff of a digital agency. In touring clients’ offices, we saw an opportunity to tackle workplace hurdles everyone encountered: meetings were constantly rescheduled due to overbooking and stolen rooms; people lacked the right office space for tasks at hand - something had to give. Five years later, we're tackling the workplace experience one square foot at a time.

Based in Boston, we're 70 crewmates going on 140. We have remote colleagues from California to Lithuania. Robin's team includes foodies, sculptors, writers, artists, athletes, sneakerheads, hikers, skiers, skaters, runners, and more. We're all united behind the idea of making thousands of offices around the world (like HubSpot, Shopify, and Kayak) more enjoyable places to walk into each day.

As a Backend Engineer, you’ll spend the majority of your time improving Robin’s API and web services, creating new products and features, and helping architect a scalable services-oriented architecture. Our engineering team isn't married to specific technologies or languages. Choosing the right tool for the job (even if we have to learn it first) is a strong part of our team culture.

A great candidate will have knowledge of Java, PHP, Go, Node, or other common server-side languages. Knowledge of dev-ops, service-oriented architecture, queues (e.g. Kafka, AWS SQS) and databases are also a great foundation. We value a strong understanding of DDD concepts, SOLID principles, and an ability to design and build packages in a modular, scalable way.

We regularly contribute to open source community, and encourage everyone on our team to do the same.

    • We work with multiple technologies and languages, and are willing to pick up something new to get the job done
We’re creating the smart office of the future. We’d love to have you be a part of it.
