Software Engineer Platform Backend

Stride Health

About the roleThe Stride team is on the lookout for a smart, motivated Engineer to help take our Stride Platform to the next level. We are planning for many new things for our next iterations, so your work will be feature-heavy, and you’ll have tons of say on its architecture and infrastructure. You will also be an advocate for best practices in mobile/web APIs, infrastructure-as-code, in-memory caching and database administration across the company. As a business, we sit on a unique position and have partnerships with many of the giant work-for-yourself platforms who want to better serve their workforce.

 On the engineering side, we use Node, Python, Scala/Akka, Swift, Kotlin, and some cool machine learning models you’re going to love hearing about. Our Platform backend is written in Typescript, and we use ExpressJS for our RESTful services, Apollo for GraphQL, as well as Redis and Postgres for our data caching and persistence. We’re using Terraform for Infrastructure as Code, all of it containerized on AWS. Last but not least, we’re investing heavily in Serverless for workers and queues.

We are a small, nimble organization where you will have plenty of opportunities to make a big impact, and we would love for you to join us on this adventure. The nature of work is changing, forever.
