Senior Node.js Backend Developer: "If I had more time, I would have written fewer lines of code"

Does the above quote resonate with you, do you like to keep things simple, do you find it exciting to work with Node.js, making API’s, doing SQL, running a production grade service, and writing tests? Then you might be the person we’re looking for!

We exist to improve people's daily lives by helping them do their shopping. Today, we help more than 1,100,000 people monthly through our shopping apps, our digital catalog that has reimagined PDF catalogs in a digital world, and our shopping data that helps businesses make better decisions faster.

Fun facts about our backend:

  • Our API's are hit up to 1,000 times per second
  • Every request we receive has a unique latitude/longitude, which is an interesting caching challenge
  • Our SSR web app is its own service that hits our JSON backend service behind the scenes
  • We use Prometheus and Grafana for metrics
  • We use AWS
  • We use Elasticsearch and Logstash for logging
  • Our repositories are named after animals: Squid, Wolf, Raven, Vizsla etc.
